In the Nursery this week…

In the Nursery this week the morning class have been exploring the topic ‘Transport’ with the opportunity to engage in road safety role-play in the outdoor area, categorising transport types by land and engaging in transport themed listening activities.

They also got very messy washing the cars in the outdoor area and car painting.

The afternoon children have demonstrated a real interest in the story ‘Dear Zoo’ and have enjoyed participating in animal themed listening activities and singing songs. The children ‘wrote’ letters to the zoo to ask for a Nursery pet and were delighted when the postman sent them a puppy (just like in the story!) to visit for the day. Albert the dog was a popular member of the Nursery class and a fantastic opportunity for the children to learn about what a pet needs to be healthy.

Other activities this week have included a ‘Nature Scavenger Hunt’ following the children observing a squirrel in the Nursery outdoor area and lots of junk modelling in the art area.


Crofton Roman Villa

Crofton Roman Villa

On the 5th of October year 3 went on a school trip to the Crofton Roman Villa . While they enjoyed dressing up, making mosaics and looking at the wonderful remains of the villa, they also discovered that under our school field is a Roman Villa. They also learnt about how they lived in those ancient times.

Seesaw Has Arrived

Mrs Davey has taught the Tubbenden staff all about Seesaw. Seesaw is an app/website that allows children to share their work with their parents. All the classes now have their accounts – everyone is really enjoying using it.

A Wonderful Harvest Assembly

On Friday 6th October the school had two amazing harvest assemblies. Every year-group had the chance to present their learning to the school and in the infants to their grand parents as well. A lovely set of well sung songs made the assembly a treat for the ears. Also a very special thanks to Mrs Poxon for organising it and Mrs Braddock for helping the children learn the songs.

In the Nursery this week…

In the Nursery this week the morning children have been exploring the topic of ‘Autumn/Harvest’ with seasonal themed activities such as playing in an ‘Autumn Mud Kitchen’, making hedgehogs from playdoh and craft bits, drawing harvest vegetables and painting Autumnal tress having participated in an Autumn walk and taken photos of the changes in the environment. They also explored ‘Harvest’ vegetables with opportunities to sketch, paint and print with them.

They were also visited by ‘Harry the Hedgehog’ and enjoyed making-up stories of his adventures both as a class and individually and creating story-maps.

Following a child in the class celebrating a birthday there was lots of chatter amongst the Afternoon children inviting each other to make-believe parties. They then participated in ‘Party’ role-play in the ‘Home Corner’ with opportunities to create invitations for peers, make birthday cards and participate in party dances during PE sessions.

Later in the week the children were observed digging for treasure in the outdoor area which triggered a visit from Captain Prangnell a confused pirate in need of some help in finding some lost treasure! The Nursery pirates jumped in to action and helped Captain locate the lost treasure by creating treasure maps, counting out steps around the playground and some even made telescopes. Once found they enjoyed exploring the found treasure in a whole-class communication activity.
