Well we can't quite believe it but it's our final week altogether as Superheroes. We have spent most of the week in our new classes and our little superheroes welcomed the new children in a stay and play session. We can't wait to welcome them into nursery in September and look forward to getting to know them all.
To celebrate all that we have achieved throughout the year we held a 'Celebration assembly'. We each received a medal and certicate for our excellent sports skills and sportsmanship during our sports day. Our older superheroes who are moving up into Class 1 shared a montage of photographs throughout the year. It was amazing to see how much we have all grown and changed in a year. Afterwards we were awarded with our graduation certificates and memories booklets. It was very emotional.
Throughout the term we have continued to collect our credits and this week we got to go to the credits shop and spend them. We had lots of tough choices to make to decide what we'd like to buy. We can't wait to show our grown ups what we bought.
This week our older children have been preparing their memories booklet which involved getting their hands and feet a little bit dirty! We can't believe there's only a week left with these superheroes. It's going to be an emotional assembly next week.
We were all very happy the sun continued to shine for us on Thursday so that we could have our sports day. We had so much fun in all of our races and we were very proud of all our adults for joining in the competition too. Take a look at some of our fab pictures.
Today we joined Class 1 for a Polish lesson. Adrian, Kamila and Natan told us all about the Polish flag and they helped us to find where Poland is on the map. They told us how to count up to 5 in Polish, which was a bit tricky but lots of fun. We tried to learn colours in Polish too! Afterwards we made our own Poland flag.
This week we have been very busy learning all about how we can be healthy and keep fit. We have been doing a 5 minute Exercise routine every day which helps to warm up both sides of our brain. It is lots of fun and makes us all smile. Why not try it home by playing the song "wake up it's a beautiful morning".
We have been really busy preparing for the Summer fair next Friday. We have planted a sunflower seed and taking care of it so it grows really tall. We have all painted a plant pot too. We are practising our fine motor skills by sewing. We have been really careful to make sure we don't prick our fingers with the needles. They look amazing and will be on sale at the fair.
Today we listened to the story “Oliver’s fruit salad” by Vivian French. It was all about a little boy who said he didn’t like fruit but in the end he loved the fruit salad that he made with his family. This inspired us to make our own fruit salad. We peeled and chopped lots of different fruits like, strawberries, raspberries, kiwi fruit, apples, oranges, melon and bananas. We added some orange juice to stop the fruit turning brown. It tasted delicious.
We are all looking forward to our sports day next week and have been busy practising the different events. We hope all our grown up will have lots of fun watching us. Don't forget your trainers on Tuesday so that you can join us for our parents race.
We have arrived safely at Curious Kids Town and the children (and adults) are all having a fantastic time exploring all the different areas.
This week we went onto the large yard and used some of the different sports equipment to play lots of different games. We had fun climbing and balancing along the big trim trial and used our ball skills to play football and basketball.
We have started to prepare for our Summer fair this week by painting our plant pots so that we can plant our seeds. Do you know what we are growing? Ask your child if they can remember.
In PE this week we have started to practise for our Sports Day which will be on the 9th July. We have our bean bags ready to balance on our heads and our running legs are getting faster! With Mrs Blakemore we started to learn lots of different rolls, like a pencil or log roll, a tuck roll and we even learnt the teddy bear role, which was lots of fun. We have continued to be very active outside and challenged ourselves to explore the trim trail to see what our bodies can do. It was lots of fun.
In in our collective worship we have been thinking all about friends. We have thought about how we need to behave to be a good friend and thoughts about what qualities we have as friends. We have been singing the song, "You've got a friend in me" from Toy Story.
Welcome back everyone. The Nursery Team are so glad to be back and are ready to start our next topic "How high can I jump?" Which means we will be getting very active and learning all about how to keep healthy.
Our first visit outside this morning was very interesting as all the tables and chairs we covered in small bugs! We didn't know what they were so we decided to have a google search and we discovered that the bugs are actually Ladybug larva. This means that they have hatched from the eggs that the adult ladybug has layed and are searching for food. We tried to give them leaves to eat but they crawled away. When discovered that they actually like to each other small insects. Once the larva has eaten enough food it will turn into pupa and then after 5-7 days it will hatch out and be an adult ladybug. We found this so fascinating to learn about so we have collected some of the larva in a container and we will hopefully see it turn into pupa and then a ladybug. Watch his spaces!
Today we have a fantastic time doing apparatus in PE. We were all very brave and climb on, over and under the apparatus. We learnt to put our arms out to help us to balance and we remembered to bend our knees when we landed on the mats. Sophia said, "I liked the yellow apparatus best because my favourite colour is yellow." Rowan said, "I liked the blue apparatus because it was the tallest!" "I liked to the red apparatus because it was so high!" Isla. Lucas also said "I like the blue one because it was so high!" We can't wait to get the apparatus out again next week.
