Fruit Pizza Fun!

In the Nursery this week the children were very excited to be visited by a chef from CaterLink, the providers of Tubbenden Primary School meals, and participated in a ‘Fruit Pizza’ cooking activity!

Nursery Sports Day

Today the Nursery children participated in a ‘Sports Day’ event and had a fantastic time on the field, running races, tackling obstacle courses and playing ‘beat the goalie’.

It was brilliant to see so many parents there supporting, and we hope that you had as good a time watching the children compete as we did.

Well done to those that won the ‘Parents’ Race’ and to all who participated!

And a BIG thank you on behalf of the Nursery children to Mrs. Seal for organising such a fab event! ­čÖé

In the Nursery this week…

In the Nursery this week the children have been exploring the topic ‘The Great Outdoors’ with a focus on ‘Weather’.

They have enjoyed participating in science experiments such as exploring wind direction with kites, creating a cloud in a jar and making rainbows using torches and CDs.

We have also been keeping an eye on the weather this week and created a chart as a class to record our observations.

Fingers crossed the sunny weather lasts!

In the Nursery this week the children have continued to explore the topic ‘The Great Outdoors’ with a ‘Literacy Focus’ on the story ‘The Bog Baby’ written by Jeanne Willis.

The children were excited to find a ‘magical pond’ in the Nursery classroom and they each caught a ‘Bog Baby’. We talked about how our ‘Bog Babies’ looked and drew pictures of them before creating clay models.

We then practised our writing skills by creating ‘birth certificates’ for our ‘Bog Babies’ and wrote key-words from the story.

In addition, the children enjoyed visiting the Tubbenden Wildlife Garden to look for mini-beats, ladybird addition activities, drawing mini-beasts and some large-scale welly painting in the outdoor area.

In the Nursery this week the children have been exploring the topic ‘The Great Outdoors’ following lots of observations of them playing picnics and camping in the Nursery garden.

We have transformed our role-play area in to a campsite with pop-up tents and the children have been using the plastic food and malleable materials to host picnics for their friends.

We have also been exploring natural resources and creating collages as well as singing action songs around┬áthe Nursery┬á‘campfire’ even toasting marshmallows today which were very yummy!

As part of their ‘Home Learning’ the children brought in one piece of recyclable material and categorised it by material in the Nursery ‘Recycling Site’ which has triggered lots of discussion about the environment and what we need to do to keep the world ‘happy’.

We will be continuing with this topic next week and introducing a ‘Literacy Focus’ on the story ‘The Bog Baby’ by Jeanne Willis.

Apologies for the delay in uploading photos to the blog.

Here are some photos of activities that the Nursery children enjoyed whilst participating in the second week of the ‘People Who Help Us’ topic.

We focussed on other professionals that help us within the community such as teachers, dentists, doctors and vets as well as enjoying a visit from James’ mum who is a school Nurse and Darcey’s mum a trainee midwife!
