Well done BBeebies for a super half term at nursery!!

Here is a little snippet of some of the things we have been up to.

A couple of important bits for next term:
On the 2nd of November, our first Tuesday back, it's school photos. If your child is not in session with us that day, you are still welcome to come in and have their photo taken. If your child is not due in nursery, go to school reception at 8:45am where you will be greeted by a member of staff who will invite you into the hall. We will take the children who are booked in as normal through nursery.

Just a reminder, your child will receive a parent consultation after their 'focus week' in nursery. This is spread out across the term, not the dates indicated for the rest of the school. We will let you know when your child's focus week is due and will book an online parent consultation at a suitable time for you. Please see the letter about focus children posted recently for more details.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Wishing you all a restful and fun half term.

This week we have officially headed into the season of Autumn! We have been enjoying crunching and crinkling the brown fallen leaves and starting our hunt for Autumn treasures! Your child will have brought home a little collection bag this week. If you find anything on your travels for example conkers, pine cones, interesting colourful leaves, bark, we would be very grateful if you could collect for us to share at nursery. 

This week we have been beginning to learn the story of the Little Red Hen. With our story map and actions we have been practising retelling. This has led to an interest in farm animal play and of course we had to make our very own batch of bread to taste, in fact it was so yummy we ended up making two batches! 

Our Makaton song of the week is Old Macdonald had a Farm, we have been focusing on the sign for a cow, pig and sheep. See if your child can show you!

In healthy movers we have been thinking about different types of transport whilst we move our bodies. We have practised soaring like aeroplanes, making circles like the propellers of a helicopter, swaying like a boat in the sea and blasting off to space in a rocket.

A fun filled week!

This week we have embraced the emergent theme of insects and carried on with lots of bug hunting and learning the names of different insects. BBeebie’s worked together to make a wormery and after lots and lots of searching we found and counted 10 worms!

The Makaton song we have been learning this week is Incy Wincy Spider. In Healthy Movers we have been moving our bodies like different animals to the song ‘Down in the Jungle’, which then got adapted to ‘Down in the Garden’ so we could move like insects!
Alongside this we have observed lots of dinosaur play, we have buried bones in the sand tray to discover fossils, made dinosaur footprints in paint and pretended the volcano is erupting!

The story of The Little Red hen also seems to be a firm favourite at story time so next week we are going to learn the story and make some bread.
17th September
This week we harvested the potato’s we had growing in our nursery garden. The children helped to wash and prepare. We then made potato salad for snack time using the chives from our herb garden. It was delicious!

We have started our daily afternoon toothbrushing club! Together we brush to our tooth brushing song and talk about why it’s important to look after our teeth.
We have  started Healthy Movers! Each day we have been exploring moving our bodies in different ways. This week we used scarfs to make big and small movements, play peekaboo and floating games.

We seem to have lots and lots of spiders and insects in our nursery garden at the moment and we have loved going on bug hunts and researching bug facts in our insect book. A favourite find was watching three grasshoppers cross the stepping stone area! 

We welcomed some new little ones into our BBeebies family this week and again they have done amazingly well at settling into our nursery routine!
Well done everyone!
