This week the Nursery finished exploring the topic of ‘Autumn’ by focussing on ‘Hibernation’ and the way in which animals prepare for Winter. They had a fantastic time playing in the bear cave role-play area and engaging in lots of activities such as reading stories about bears, singing hibernation songs and making hedgehogs out of playdoh and pinecones. We finished the topic with a ‘Hibernation Day’ and the children came in to Nursery in their pyjamas, made a den from sheets and a clothes line and even had the chance to meet a tortoise called Ben kindly sent in by Florence Day!
We hope you all have a fantastic half term and we look forward to seeing you when we return Tuesday 3rd November!
Here are some of the exciting and multi-sensory ways that we have been learning all about Food and Harvest.
We have been reading and writing stories all about food!
We made jam sandwiches and egg and cress sandwiches for “the Giant Jam Sandwich”
and ate them at a picnic with our parents
We read “The little Red Hen” and acted it out
We pretended to run a market stall like the one we read about in the story “Fatou, fetch the water”
We made food that began with ‘p’ like ‘pizza’ and ‘potato’
And of course we got messy
What a busy term! Yum Yum
Thank you Yellow Class!
Miss Davison 🙂
At the museum, children marvelled at the size of the dinosaur skeletons and imagined what the Earth was like when dinosaurs roamed in search of food!
In the Earthquake zone, children waited nervously to experience the earthquake simulation.
During the workshop, children explored different animal skulls and used their knowledge of teeth to identify carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.
The children were beautifully behaved. Excellent ambassadors for their school.
We have continued exploring the topic of ‘Autumn’ in the Nursery this week, focussing on the environmental changes such as leaves falling from trees and changes in the weather during this season. The children have enjoyed a variety of activities including conker rolling, Autumn walks around the school, making leaf collages and exploring Autumn vegetables.
Next week we will be continuing with the topic of ‘Autumn’ and learning about how animals prepare for winter and hibernation throughout this season with lots of exciting activities. Don’t forget it’s ‘Hibernation Day’ on Friday 23rd October and the children are invited to attend Nursery in their pyjamas!
Miraat and Reshmi from Galahad heard how badly some pets needed help. They decided they needed to do something.
On the 31st of August, Miraat and Reshmi prepared and planned a successful crafts, cakes and lemonade stall at the Lower Road Allotments. They were fundraising for PDSA. There was an abundance of other stalls for their open day. Two weeks before the event they began by making a series of crafts, and the night before the event was busy making cakes! At the allotments, the pair were very enthusiastic and did amazingly well. The Mayor of Bromley herself said how impressed she was the by the handmade items at the stall.
Miraat and Reshmi said, ‘We both had a really good time at the allotments, although it was pouring with rain all day!’ They are very proud to have raised an amazing £55.20 all together. Well done girls!
Last Friday we were astounded by the amount of Grandparents who came to celebrate Harvest with the Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and 2 children.
The children loved singing Big Red Combine Harvester among other Harvest favourites.
All the Grandparents then came to make various Harvest crafts in the classroom with the children. They created ears of corn, handprint trees and hedgehogs.
We would like to thank all the Grandparents for sharing in this wonderful event. Please rest assured that we are thinking of ways to ensure you have a clearer view of the children next year.
This week we have begun to explore the topic of ‘Autumn’ and have been focussing on ‘Harvest.’ The children have enjoyed lots of activities including baking bread, vegetable printing, pumpkin malleable and learning about all the hard work taking place on the farm at this time of year.
It was fantastic to welcome so many grandparents in to the Nursery this week for our ‘Harvest Festival and Craft’ sessions. We hope you were all as proud of the children’s brilliant performances as we were!
Next week we will be continuing with the topic of ‘Autumn’ and looking at environmental changes such as weather and leaves on trees.
Photos of the children’s performances and wonderful Harvest craft activities.
Last Saturday Oliver and his sister Emily (now Year 7) completed a 5 kilometre ‘Run or Dye’ fun run at Hever Castle (without stopping or walking!). They raised over £150 for their chosen charity which was Hospice in the Weald.
We are very proud of you both!
This is a photo of them at the end. It looks like a lot of fun!
The children have been exploring the Topic ‘All About Me’ this week and have extended their learning to incorporate family celebrations and achievements. They have enjoyed a ‘Party’ role-play area complete with lots of dressing up and decorations, writing invites/greetings cards and wrapping ‘presents’ for their friends.
Next week we will be focussing on the Topic of ‘Harvest’ and learning all about this time of year.
We discussed different emotions and the facial expressions which accompany them. The children then used icing sugar and sweets to make faces on digestive biscuits and talk about how their biscuit person was feeling.
Jinita, Ariadre and Rhys shared the ‘All About Me Bag’ with their friends this week and it was lovely to see all the things that they felt made them special and unique.
Party role-play was very popular this week and the children enjoyed showing off their groovy dance moves with the lots of party dances as well as dressing up and singing happy birthday to all their friends!
PE was lots of fun and the children explored balancing, rolling, throwing and catching as well as counting games.
