Nursery Weekly Newsletter 10/05/19

Dear Parents and Carers,

Morning Provision:

Following on from the children’s continued interest in hairdressing, the morning class have been discussing different occupations this week. They have been dressing up as fire fighters, shop keepers and doctors. We discussed each role and how they help people.

The children have also shown a great interest in magnets this week, they have been walking around the classroom trying to find which different objects are magnetic so we set up a table for the children to test different objects to find out if they’re magnetic or not.

Afternoon Provision :

The children in the afternoon class have expressed an interest in going on a picnic so the children made invites for their friends to attend a picnic then towards the end of the week we decided have a our own picnic! Due to the weather, we had our picnic in the classroom, sitting on blankets enjoying some music.

At the literacy table, the children made posters for our bug hotel outside. They drew different insects which we might find in our garden and we hung the posters up in the garden.

Both Classes:

Both classes have been working really hard practicing for our Sports Day event. They have been taking part in running races and involving different skills such as balancing and hand eye coordination.


Home Learning:

This week the children have shown a great interest in our new class mascot, a blue mouse! so the home learning is to discuss and suggest different names we could give him, then on Monday we’ll have a vote. you can either send names in on a piece of paper or email us with your suggestions. Also, have a look around your house and see what different shapes you can identify around your home

Wet Suits:

Outside our classroom in our entrance area is the rail of wetsuits, please feel free to take your child’s home as we will no longer be needing them.
