Autumn Term 1, Week 4 in Nursery!

posted 5 Oct 2017, 04:24 by Vicki Bowes


It has been a magical week in Nursery this week. Our learning has been based around the theme of fairies and magic. 


Linked to this theme, we have enjoyed reading a range of Twinkle stories. 


Our favourite story was ‘Twinkle Tames a Dragon.’

In maths we have been identifying shapes and developing our understanding of their properties.


We really enjoyed making shape pictures and matching shapes to objects found in the classroom. 

On Wednesday, we had a visit from Jigsaw Jenie! We had lots of fun talking about our emotions and developing our understanding of how to deal with our emotions. 


In Phonics we have been developing our understanding of rhythm and rhyme and our awareness of rhyme in speech.


We particularly enjoyed making different sounds with our mouths.

In everything that we do, we have been trying hard to speak in sentences and develop our vocabulary. 


As you can see, it certainly has been a very busy week in nursery and we have been making our best better to be the best that we can be!

Autumn Term Week 3 in Nursery!

posted 29 Sep 2017, 03:45 by Vicki Bowes


As always we have been busy bees in Nursery! This week has been our final week of learning based around the theme of superheroes and we have loved every minute of it! It certainly has been a magical adventure!


On Monday we received a special package addressed to all of the children in Nursery! When we opened it, we were delighted to find that Emerald had finally been returned to us! 

The evil pea must have made his ‘Best Better’ after all!

The title of the story that we have been reading in Nursery this week is ‘Supertato- Hap-pea ever after’ 


Our favourite part of the story was when the evil pea got squashed inside of the story book! We found this very funny!

To develop our mark making skills this week, we made ‘Keep Out’ posters to ensure that the evil pea stayed away from our nursery once and for all.


We tried hard to write our names on our posters using our name cards!

On Wednesday Dawn came to do Sing and Sing with us. 


We really enjoyed singing new rhymes and learning basic signs.

In maths, we continued to ‘Make our best better’ by working on our counting skills. This week we counted evil peas!


It’s a good job none of them escaped!

At the end of the week, we made and tried vegetable soup, which was delicious! We made sure that we followed the instructions carefully and we each had a try at chopping the vegetables. 


As you can see, it certainly has been a very busy week in nursery and we have been making our best better to be the best that we can be!

It has been a super exciting week in Nursery this week! We have continued with our theme of Superheroes and on Monday, everybody in the Academy got dressed up as their favourite Superhero. 


The title of the story that we have been reading in Nursery this week is ‘Supertato.’ 


We enjoyed listening to Supertato’s adventures and making some of the characters from the story in the Creative Area. 


On Tuesday, we received a message from the Evil Pea. We couldn’t believe our ears! The Evil Pea had been up to his usual tricks and had taken Emerald!

We decided to make a plan to get him back. We each completed a poster to let everybody know that Emerald was missing and we put them up around the Academy. We really hope that he comes back soon! If you see him, please let one of the Nursery team know! 

 
In maths, we learnt a new Supertato song to help us with our counting skills. Click on link to listen to the song; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efMHLkyb7 Remember to use your counting fingers!

We also had lots of fun on our superhero number mission, looking for hidden numbers and numicon plates around the Academy!


This week we were lucky enough to met Jigsaw Jenie for the first time. She helped us to think about our feelings and emotions.


As you can see, it certainly has been a very busy week in nursery and we have been making our best better to be the best that we can be!

It was also ‘National Read a Book’ day on Wednesday. We enjoyed sharing Superhero stories together.

It has been a busy transition week in nursery this week. We have had lots of fun exploring the classroom areas and being 5 star learners. 


Our story of the week this week was Maisy goes to Nursery.


This story got us thinking about the different areas in our nursery that we like to work in, just like Maisy and Dotty. 


We have been working hard practising our grapheme of the week. 


We have also been working hard to identify our number of the week.We have enjoyed developing our learning in our outdoor environment.

Summer Term 1 - Week 1 in Nursery!

posted 12 May 2017, 06:10 by Vicki Bowes


We have had a really exciting week in nursery learning and having fun.


Our focus story this week has been ‘There’s a house inside my mummy.’ This has helped to think about the changes that happen to us as we grow. Some of us have also shared pictures of ourselves when we were young. 


This week we have started ‘Yogabugs’ for our PE sessions. Becky comes in to teach us this. She helps us to make our yoga movements through stories.


On Tuesday Ash came to see us. He is a football freestyler. He showed us a lot of tricks and then we tried to do them ourselves!


We love working in the areas and we have challenges in nursery that help us to develop our learning.

This week was the launch of our ‘early words together’ club. Some children came to school to work on their communication and language skills with their parents. We had lots of fun.


On Friday we got some new visitors in school. We have got 5 very tiny but very hungry caterpillars. We can’t wait to see what is going to happen with them.

Week 24 in Nursery!

posted 17 Mar 2017, 05:04 by Vicki Bowes


We have had a really exciting week in nursery learning and having fun.


Our focus story this week has been Little Red Riding Hood. This has made us think about stranger danger and how we must not talk to strangers.


In literacy this week we created a story map for the story of Little Red Riding Hood. We all worked together to draw pictures and retell the story.

On our maths table this week we have had counting fingers. The fingers are helping us to count and recognise numbers.


We found a lot of boxes in nursery this week and we had great fun making them into different things. We made robots, animals, cars and even a train. It was brilliant.


During our cooking session this week we made sandwiches. Spreading butter on the bread is good for fine motor development this will then help us with our writing.


We are enjoying working in different areas for our IT sessions. Some of us stay in the nursery working on the ipads and some of us go down to the computer suite.

Week 22 in Nursery!

posted 8 Mar 2017, 04:04 by Vicki Bowes


It was great to get back to nursery after our half term break. This term we are concentrating on traditional tales.


Our focus story this week has been Goldilocks and the three bears. We have enjoyed listening to and re-enacting this story this week. Most of us were familiar with the story.


In our literacy this week we received an important message off Daddy Bear via the internet. He told us that Baby Bear was very unhappy and needed a picture to cheer him up because Goldilocks had ruined the cottage.


In maths this week we have been ordering according to size. The three bears went on a picnic and we needed to sort out which bowl belonged to Daddy Bear, Mammy Bear and Baby Bear. Mrs Cook kept getting it all mixed up!


In forest schools this week we went outside looking for materials to create our own Goldilocks. We had lots of fun.

This week we celebrated World Book Day. Most of us came in our pyjamas and we met Bedtime Story Bear. Bedtime Story Bear is going to go home with one of us every day for a bedtime story.


On Tuesday it was Shrove Tuesday and we made pancakes. We put syrup, chocolate spread or jam on them. They were delicious!

We have had another exciting week in nursery, we have been thinking about our emotions.


Our focus story this week has been Inside Out. We have explored the different emotions from the story and we now think about how we are feeling when we come to nursery. Most of us are happy like Joy. 


We use the ipads in IT this week. We used an app called ‘Math for kids.’ We can use this app at home.


In maths this week we have been shape detectives. We went exploring around school to identify shapes in the environment. Lewis was such a superstar he demonstrated his skills to Mrs Steele.


In our literacy this week we have talked about and recorded what makes us happy. We had lots of ideas, our friends, family and going swimming are a few examples.
