This half term we are looking at animals and this week we are looking at pets. I brought in Eagle, my seven year old greyhound. He used to be a racing dog but now he is enjoying his retirement. Eagle loved meeting the Nursery children and was a very well behaved boy. The children loved stroking him and finding out what he needs to stay healthy and fit.
The children love to look at their books.
Brrrrrrrrrr! It’s cold outside.
The children have enjoyed mark-making in the frost and finding ice. The animals were stuck in the ice and needed to be set free. They have made ice soup and used many one handed tools along the way.
The children love using the brooms. It is so good for their writing skills. They need strong shoulders,elbows and wrists
to help them write.
What an exciting time! The children loved getting ready for Christmas. They helped to decorate the class, they made cards and presents for their parents, out of clay, wrapped the presents and wrote their names on labels.
The children loved writing lists for Father Christmas and… who was on the good list? They had lots of fun role playing.
They also had a surprising visit from someone very special.
We had a fabulous week celebrating Rex’s birthday. We wrapped presents, wrote labels, made cards, decorated cakes, made sandwiches, then partied.
Look at how busy they were.
What a treat Nursery and Reception had last Friday, when the Hobgoblin Theatre Company came to school to give the children a theatre experience in our own school hall. The children were delighted with the performance of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears.
After the show, the children were also treated to a workshop where they used their bodies and faces to perform some of their favourite fairytale characters. The parents also joined in. What a great time we had.
