Dear Parents and Carers,

Morning Provision:

This week, the children have been practicing their jumping and counting skills. Using the number mats, the children were tasked to jump to the correct number.

In the role play area, we have been discussing starting school this week. The children tried on different school uniforms and used exercise books to practice writing their name.

One of our parents very kindly offered to come in and talk about her career. The children enjoyed hearing about how she designs and prints clothing items and enjoyed having a go themselves at designing a tshirt.

Afternoon Provision :

After a lot of interest in wildlife this week, especially frogs, we looked at a slideshow containing information and facts about different animals who live in the pond. The children also enjoyed getting messy in the art area, making junk modelling frogs and insects.

In the literacy area, the children have been extending their fine motor skills, enjoying some threading activities and attempting to make one and two colour patterns.

Both Provisions:

Both provisions were excited to go and watching the Junior children’s performance of ‘Tubbenden’s Greatest Show’. Everybody involved did an incredible job and children thoroughly enjoyed singing along to the songs from ‘The Greatest Showman’

Home Learning:

There will be no home learning this week except to have fun and enjoy the sun! We’d love to see photos of the children enjoying the sunshine and the different activities they’re doing.

Photos of these activities or any other exciting news can be emailed to nurseryparents@tubbenden.bromley.sch.uk

White Tshirts:

On Monday, please could send your child in with a spare old white plain tshirt. We will be using fabric paints to create our own designs.

Jewellery at Nursery:

Please can we ask that children do not come in to Nursery wearing jewellery or anything around their neck i.e sports day medals. A few are getting lost and it can also be a health and safety hazard while taking part in PE or playing in the classroom.

Froggy Update:

As our tadpoles have now become frogs, Friday afternoon we released Freddie, Ping, Daisy, Minnie and Hoppy into TWiG. (the Tubbenden Wildlife Garden). We hope they’ll enjoy their new home, hopping around with some other frogs who have just been released from other classes.

Reports:

on Thursday and Friday we sent home brown envelopes containing reports to the parents of children who will be leaving us at the end of July. Please could we have these signed and returned as soon as possible so we can send them over to your child’s new schools.

When the session has finished, if you wish for your child to stay at Nursery, please bring your child to our entrance door where we will register them. Thank you for your cooperation.

Dear Parents and Carers,

Morning Provision:

The morning class really enjoyed sharing their baby photos this week, the children all made guesses as to whose photo was who and enjoyed talking about what was happening in the photos.

In the role play area this week, due to a lot of interest in making their friends dinner, we set up a café! the children enjoyed following recipe cards, making collages of different foods cut out from magazines and creating their own menus.

Afternoon Provision :

In the afternoons our café has transformed into a hospital! the children have been dressing up as doctors and nurses and helping their friends to get better. They have also been making appointment cards, practicing writing their friends names.

The children have also shown a lot of interest in working together to build a large train track, we even got more track out of the shed so the track could go around the whole classroom!

in the art area, the children have shown a great interest in mixing colours. the children made circles of primary colours then mixed them up to make secondary colours!

Both Provisions:

Both classes were very excited when they arrived on Thursday to see we have some new additions to the class, we have 3 tadpoles! we are currently in the process of naming them and when they grow into frogs we will be releasing them into TWiG (the Tubbenden Wildlife Garden)

We would like to say a huge thank you to everybody who came to cheer on the children at Sports Day this week. The children thoroughly enjoyed the morning.

Home Learning:

As the weather is forecast to be beautiful this weekend, the home learning is to simply enjoy the sunshine!

Dear Parents and Carers,

Morning Provision:

The morning class have continued to show an interest in holidays and different countries this week. the children thoroughly enjoyed sharing their photos and talking about their holidays with their peers.

In the construction area, the children have been building different types of buildings you might stay in when on holiday. Some creations included hotels, a house, a caravan and a box!

They have also been showing off their creative side this week. They have been very busy making cards for their male relatives and also making their own medals for Sports Day!

Afternoon Provision :

This week we have been discussing different sports from all around the world. We learnt about football, ice hockey, bobsleigh and kabaddi. We have also been using our counting skills to count how many players there are on each team in these sports.

Using different natural objects found our garden, the children have made collages this week. They discussed the texture, the smell and what they could see which was different about each object.

During PE the children have been asking to do gymnastic this week. so each child put on a little display for their friends then we had a go at doing a gymnastic circuit!

Both Provisions:

We were very lucky this week to be joined by Olympic athlete Eziekiel Ewulo. The children joined in with circuit training led by Eziekiel which they all put their best efforts into. Thank you everybody for their sponsors.

Home Learning:

After the children’s interest in showing their holiday photos, a few have asked if they can show their baby photos. So this weeks home learning is to bring in a baby photo and for the children to let us know how much they weighed. we will then continue this by comparing the weights in a maths activity.

Photos of these activities or any other exciting news can be emailed to nurseryparents@tubbenden.bromley.sch.uk

Dear Parents and Carers,

Morning Provision:

This week the morning provision have been exploring different climates around the world. We started by looking at the desert, reading stories about the desert and discussing which animals live there. We then looked at the Arctic and which animals live there.

There has been a lot of discussion this week about holidays, the children have shown a great interest in flags. We printed off different flags for the children to colour in and they also had to identify the different countries they came from using a book about the different flags.

Using junk modelling materials, the children have been making their own musical instruments. They used straws to make panpipes which they decorated themselves and used biscuit tubs to make drums.

 

Afternoon Provision :

This week we have been exploring the topic ‘all around the world’ at the beginning of the week the children voted which countries they’d like to visit. Each day we explored a different country, starting the session with a powerpoint containing facts about each place. We started with France, the children enjoyed using construction materials to make buildings and structures associated with France. We then looked at Spain and had a go at some flamenco dancing. The favourite was Italy, the children used collage materials to make pizza and were excited to hear about the waterways of Venice!

After coming back from half term, we found our herbs have doubled in size! we cut a few down and soaked them in water to create to stronger scent. The children enjoyed smelling parsley, lavender, mint but didn’t really enjoy the chives!

Home Learning:

This weeks’ home learning is to bring in a photo of your child on holiday for them to talk about and to put up in our role play travel agents.

Photos of these activities or any other exciting news can be emailed to nurseryparents@tubbenden.bromley.sch.uk
