Well done Foundation Stage children for a fabulous Nativity. Here is a link to the video of our production for 2018 - The Sleepy Shepherd.
For Anti-Bullying Week in Nursery we shared the beautiful book, We're All Wonders, and discussed the idea that we all look different, like different things, believe in different things etc, but we are all equally as wonderful and special. We decorated mini people in our own way to celebrate our uniqueness and made a promise of how we would be kinder to our friends and family that week.
To celebrate inter-faith week we looked at Judaism, in particular the celebration of Hannukah. We heard the story behind the celebration then discussed it and sequenced it to improve our understanding. We then completed lots of linked activities; we played matching pairs with key images to improve vocabulary, played with the traditional Jewish toy of dreidel, made menorahs from playdough, decorated our own Hannukah candles and made the traditional Jewish snack of Potato Latkes (which we enjoyed tasting afterwards!)
Black History - 6th November 2018
As part of our work during Black History Month this October, Nursery learnt to retell the poem; 'Call Alligator' by the wonderful Afro-Guyanese poet, John Agard. We think you'll agree they did a super job!
Nursery - 14th September 2018
Wow what a fun and busy first week we have had in Nursery. The children have done so well settling in to their new environment. We have spent the week making friends, learning rules and routines and exploring all the lovely toys and areas we have in our Nursery.
We also celebrated Roald Dahl day on Thursday by setting up our own Charlie's Chocolate Factory and making bookmarks for the Enormous Crocodile. And on top of that we shared the story of Noah's Ark then worked together to create lots of art linked to this for our Nursery hall display.
Well done Nursery and let's have another fun and fabulous week next week!"
