This week we have..

July 15, 2016

It’s been a busy week here at nursery.

We have been exploring vegetables and paint, seeing the different patterns that we can make. The children enjoyed commenting on the colours and shapes the vegetables made.

We have also been sequencing numbers 1-10 in various ways- potato printing, cutting and sticking…

We have been making loud and quiet noises with instruments and trying to stick to simple beats. The children have enjoyed working out how many “beats” are in their name.

In language group we have been looking at letter recognition with some of the younger children- matching letters, finding letters etc. The older children have been practising sounding out words and forming letters. We have started to use “magic pencils” (our fingers) to draw letters in the air.

The children have enjoyed exercising to sticky kids and tumble tots and seeing the effects this has on their bodies. they realise they needed a rest and a drink afterwards.

In the garden we have been balancing and jumping off and over different obstacles, using various body parts to support ourselves. We also had great fun splashing in puddles in the garden and getting quite muddy! We hope the sun is here to stay now.

Next Wednesday is our leavers party from 2.30-4.30, all children are invited and a big thank you to all those parents who have offered to help, we really appreciate it :) We’re hoping for nice weather so we can play some games in the garden and have a party picnic tea. Next Wednesday will also be my last day until Monday 8th August as I am off on holiday. If you need anything while i’m away then please speak to Laura or Sarah.

Wednesday will be my last day with some children so i’d like to take this opportunity to say how much I have enjoyed caring for your children and watching them learn new skills and take on new challenges for the time they have been with us. It’s a privilege to help look after and teach your children and I and the rest of the team thoroughly enjoy it. School leaver time is always a sad time but we know the children are more than ready for their new school adventure and we also know we have lots of children here eager to be the “big boys and girls”.
