Learning at Home Week 2

Thank you to everyone who joined in with the spirit of counting circles around the home this week. It is a good activity to help children’s observational skills as well as learning about shape in the environment.

The family with the most circles was Evelyn’s family, who found 88 circles – and photographed them too! They were all objects which could be moved, but some were the same.

Other high scoring families were Harvey (66), Tilly (65) Maddisson (59). I accepted all answers although some were a bit dubious – Daddy’s belly??? Some were actually spheres, 3D shapes and some were fruit and veg which I’m not sure would count as an accurate circle!

Well done to Freddie and family, who displayed their findings in a most unusual photograph montage of circles.

Hope, Ryan, Archie, Talullah, Sophie, Noah and Priya also deserve a mention for finding things I wouldn’t have thought of. Also for having a go themselves without any help!

Well done Everyone.

Here are a few more photos of you learning at home this week:

Yummy biscuits!
Decorating pine cones found on a daily walk
Collecting items for a ‘sound box’ in phonics. The money is the noisiest!

Thank you to everyone who has embraced any of the activities we suggested this week. Your children continue to smile and your photos brighten our days.

Learning at Home

It has been an interesting week for all of us. Thank you to everyone who has been using our Seesaw App and keeping in touch with us. Thank you too for your feedback, which has been very positive. Here are a few photos from the week, showing what some of the children have been up to:

Making patterns on a maths activity
Music Time
Getting creative!
Enjoying the sunshine in the garden. Hope it’s not the bear doing the hunting!!
Daily exercise. Walking the dog!

If anyone is viewing this and has not got their code for the Seesaw App, please email school with ‘nursery’ in the subject box. We can then send you a new code.

Stay safe and keep smiling!

World Book Day

All Nursery children joined in World Book Day this week and dressed up as various characters from stories we enjoy. Here are a few examples of who came to Nursery on Thursday 5th March:

We love joining in with Michael Rosen as he tells his story ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt@
Cinderella going on a bear hunt!
Cat in the Hat
The Gruffalo

Harvesting our Leeks

Back in the Autumn term we planted some leeks with Anna, our gardener. We have been watching them grow and decided they were big enough to cook the Giant’s supper.

We wanted to make Leek and Potato Soup so we had to prepare the vegetables before cooking them.

When the soup was cooked there was only one thing to do….

…… after all the Giant had fallen down the beanstalk!!

Christmas Party!

Our Christmas party is going to be held on Thursday 19th December. As always, we are inviting all the full time, morning and afternoon children to party together from 10.00am until 2.00pm.

Lunchtime will be included. Nursery staff will provide the sandwiches and anyone who wants to make a donation of food to the party can take a slip from the poster in nursery.

Children can wear party clothes but please bear in mind they may be having a short time in the garden so they will need a warm coat and good shoes.
