Happy New Year Everybody!


Welcome back.

This week we have been busy discussing our holiday news, we are very pleased to hear that everybody was on Santa's  nice list! It has been lovely hearing all about your celebrations.

Over the next few weeks we will be learning all about our planet, this is in response to the children's interest in our world map.

Autumn Term 2019
This term we have welcomed lots of new children into our nursery as well as welcomed back several children from last year. They have all been happily settling into nursery and have enjoyed exploring our new toys and activities. 
 Week ending 13/09/19
This week we have continued to welcome new children and their families into nursery. Everyone is beginning to settle in well and getting to know the nursery routines. 
Thanks to the good weather have have had a few walks around the school grounds and on Wednesday we introduced the children to the Secret Garden. 
We will be talking about families this half term and thinking about our own families and people in our lives who are important to us, so if you haven’t already, please bring in a photo of your family to put on our family tree. Thank you. 
Week ending 27/09/19
This week we started our Toothbrushing Club. The children all have their own toothbrush and we watch a song by Blippi whilst we clean our teeth. The children were all very enthusiastic about cleaning their teeth at Nursery which is great. 
We have started our phonics this week. The first sound we have learned is m. To write an m we say ‘Whoosh, Maisie mountain mountain’ 
We have enjoyed talking about families this week. We have learnt the signs for mummy, daddy, brother and sister. 
Week ending 11/10/19
This week we have been looking for signs of Autumn. We have been on several autumn walks and have been collecting different coloured leaves and berries for our autumn display. If you find anything autumnal over the weekend please bring it in for us to look at. 
We have been learning the letter a. To write an a we say “Whoosh, (the leading stroke,) around the apple and down the leaf.”  Many of the children can tell us if they have an a in their name which is fantastic!
We have been learning a story over the last half term called
“Finding a friend.” 
Autumn Term 2
Week ending 01.11.19
Welcome back everyone. We hope you had a lovely half term.
Our theme for this half term is 'Celebrations!'
This week we have learnt about Diwali, the Hindu festival of light. We have really enjoyed the story of Rama and Sita, in particular how the demon king with 10 heads and 20 arms was defeated by Rama, showing how good triumphed over evil.
Week ending 08.11.19
This week we have been learning the letter and sound 's.' We imagine a snake and say "Whoosh, slither down the snake!" as we form it. We have found lots of things beginning with this letter.
We have learnt about staying safe on Bonfire night and the story of 'The Gunpowder Plot.
We also held our first healthy movers session in the hall on Wednesday for parents and children which was a huge success. It will take place every week @ 8.30 and all are welcome!
Week ending 15.11.19 
This week we have talked about what we celebrate. Lots of children have birthdays this month so we have decided to have a party next Monday.
On Wednesday we are having a visit from a real life hedgehog! The children are very excited.
Our letter ands sound this week is 'd,' we imagine a dinosaur and say, "Around his bottom, up his tall neck and down to his feet."
The number we have been focusing on is 4.
