Week 5 – Sports week
We’ve had a very active week and have continued to talk about different ways to stay fit and healthy. Children loved joining in with Wake-up Shake-up on the KS2 playground and enjoyed visiting the field to watch some of the older children take part in Sport’s Day. In Nursery, we’ve taken part in mini races and learnt how to throw foam javelins. We measured how far we’d thrown them and compared who threw the javelin the furthest. On Tuesday, we were really lucky because a theatre company came to visit. Children were very animated after the show; hopefully they told you all about the giant football and shrinking pink football kit! We also had an unexpected visitor at the end of the week…The Donkey Sanctuary came to school and brought a donkey to meet us.
Week 6 – What are we learning this week?
With the current hot weather and lots of children returning from holidays or about to go on one, there has been a lot of talk in Nursery about trips to the seaside. Next week, we’ll enjoy singing ‘Oh I do like to be beside the seaside’ and will take part in lots of seaside- themed fun. We will:
- Talk about our experiences of the seaside and the associated sights, smells and sounds.
- Create an ice-cream shop role play area and make our own ice lollies (see below)
- Look at the size, shape and texture of shells.
- Investigate real fish.
- Explore what happens when we mix sand and paint.
- Learn about the letter sound ‘v’ for van, ice-cream van!
Fundraising – Ice lollies for sale.
We think the time has come for Ellie and Elvis to retire from active duty in Nursery! Over the last few years, they have visited many homes and are well loved by children. Elvis would like to hand over the role to someone new and has asked for your help. Next week, we will be making ice-lollies and will sell some to Nursery children at the end of the session/day for £1. We will use the funds raised to help Elvis find a replacement so that he can enjoy his retirement, knowing that children in Nursery still have an animal friend to visit. Thank you in advance for your support.
End of Year party
We will have a ‘Teddy Bear’s Picnic’ on the afternoon of Monday 16thJuly. If your child is moving to Reception in September and they don’t attend Nursery on a Monday afternoon, they are welcome to join us from 12.30pm-2.30pm. Please bring them to the Nursery door and sign them in as usual. Please collect them at home time, which is 2.30pm. We will be making sandwiches in the morning and will have a few picnic treats including some fruit and a biscuit. We will provide the picnic food but if you’d like to contribute towards the cost, we will put a money box in the entrance.
