Summer 2

We are learning all about water - our title is Why Is Water Wet?"

 

The challenge is to bring in a picture or an object that explains the varied things we use water for.  Your child/children could draw a picture, take a photograph, cut a picture from a magazine or paper, or bring an object in from home that is something to do with water.

This term our Nursery children are developing their ball skills. We started with beanbags because they are easier to grab hold of and they can't roll away! To begin we warmed up by walking around the hall, balancing the beanbags on different parts of our body. Then we had a go at throwing and catching. Most of our children were able to begin to throw and catch the beanbag, just a little bit. We had to make sure we...1) Watched it all the time. 2) Threw it up, a little way, with control 3 )Had our hands ready to grab it when it came back down again. About three of our children were able to do this with confidence, so they were encouraged to throw the beanbag a little higher in the air. Watch our progress throughout the coming weeks.

Two boys have been showing persistence, in Nursery. This morning they couldn't spin the spinning tops, "we can't do it Yet!", they said. They tried and tried and NOW they can do it! Dojo points were rewarded for persistence.

Happy New Year to all our children, families and carers.  We hope you had a fun but restful holiday.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your generous cards, gifts and wishes before the Christmas holiday. 

 

Our new topic this term is "Can I have a Dog Yet?" We will be exploring what we need in order to be able to care for a pet dog. 

 

We are also having a whole school push on being fitter and healthier with our WOW campaign.  This is a National campaign to encourage everyone to Walk Once a Week, to school.  Even if you have to come in the car try to park a little further away and walk more than you usually do.  Everyone who walks, in Nursery, can take a piece of pasta and put it in our jar, we are aiming to fill up the jar, super quick, so we can have a healthy treat.

Learning through play. We wrapped boxes to go in Santa's workshop. Before we started we decided which box was the biggest and which was the smallest. Then we matched the pieces of paper to the box, to make sure we have enough paper to wrap them properly. We used our Shape, Space and Measure skills, our Physical skills and chatted about our trip to the Farm, at the same time!

We are very proud of our Nursery children. They very sensibly observed the 2 minutes silence, in remembrance of all soldiers that have died for our country in wars. We light a candle and watched the flame for 2 minutes. We watched the Cbeebies film about the poppies growing in the battle fields after the fighting ended, and explained that is why we wear poppies at this time of year.

When we went outside we were very excited to explore the ice in the tray. We discussed where the ice had come from, "the rain," how it had become ice, "it is frezzing cold" and what will happen to the ice now the sun is coming out, "it will melt!" Understanding the World - The World - notices detailed features of their environment (22-36 months) or comments and questions about aspects of their familiar world, can talk about some of the things they have observed (30-50 months).

Whilst learning about Titch we have been writing lists of all the things from the book. We started to write at the top left corner of the page, we wrote from left to right and moved down the page for each new word. Finally we ascribed meaning to our marks,"hammer", "spade", "plant pot", etc. At the same time we are all learning to hold our pencils correctly.

Children's pack Animation - Wash Your Hands

This is a short video we used in class today to teach the children about washing our hands, getting rid of the germs that might make us sick. Watch it with your child and see if they can tell you when we need to wash our hands and why.

We are learning about germs and how to wash our hands to help us stay healthy and well so on the malleable tray we had soap, water and sponges. We strengthened our hands, ready to start writing, by squeezing and squashing, making circles and rubbing the soap. We had lots of fun doing it!
