Nursery Gym

This week we have been upping our physical exercise by making a gym in Nursery. The children had to complete one minute of exercise at different stations. They loved it and took their cards home to share with parents.

Autumn Leaves

This week we have been thinking a lot about autumn and how things change at this time of year. We have looked at the different shapes, sizes and colours of leaves. We used our fingers to add autumn leaves to a tree and then covered the picture and pressed down on the paint. It mixed together with other colours and they look very good. We are going to put them up on display in our Nursery. This week has also been full of helpfulness and creativity. Children have offered to put straws in the milk and complete teacher challenges. Well done Nursery!

 

Colour Walk

On Monday we all put on our waterproof clothing and wellies and went for a colour walk around school. We had to find all the colours in the rainbow and then come back to Nursery. The children really enjoyed the activity and worked together in small groups to complete the colour challenge. We found other objects too and brought them back to Nursery including; a feather, a pine cone and a smooth pebble.

Stay and Play

 

We held our first Nursery ‘Open Morning’ of the year this week and invited our parents and grandparents in to see how we learn and play. It was great fun and everyone had a lovely time. We would like to thank everyone for the lovely comments left on their slips. We look forward to seeing you all at our next event.

The Gingerbread Man

We have been reading the traditional tale, The Gingerbread Man, in Nursery. The children have been making different sized Gingerbread men in the play dough, counting buttons, cooking Gingerbread Man biscuits, decorating Gingerbread men and re-telling the story. What fun!

Welcome!

We have welcomed our new Nursery starters this week and they have all settled in so well. We have had lots of fun already; dressing up, making jelly, measuring, making webs and visiting school and meeting all the children and teachers.

Celebration Time

Today we held a celebration day in Nursery. We celebrated with our parents all that we have achieved this year. How much we have grown and progressed from September until now and how ready we are for our next step along our learning journey.

It has been such a pleasure to get to know all the children and families. Thank you for all your love and support this year.

Remembering Bradley Lowery

On Friday the 14th July, St Joseph’s RC Primary school took part in wearing football tops in memory of Bradley Lowery. In Nursery we played football in his honour, passed, kicked and took penalties against Mrs Bertram. We remembered him along with all the other members of our school community today.

Pizza!

This week in Nursery some children were using blocks as pizza boxes and becoming delivery drivers. Mrs Burns took the initiative and asked very nicely at ‘Billy’s’ (the local takeaway) for some pizza boxes for the children. They were very generous and today the children had such fun making play dough pizzas, decorating pizza boxes, and delivering them. Thank you Mrs Burns and Billy’s chip shop.

From there the some children held ‘dance classes’ on the carpet area. They listened to each other and followed instructions.

After that we had a ‘c’ party to celebrate our new sound of the week ‘c’.

We have been so busy.

Following the children’s interests is crucial at this early stage of development and using it as a teaching tool allows us to unlock a child’s full potential.
