If you have got a picture of your lovely dogs we would love to see them and celebrate them in nursery. It is the year of the dog! We have had some lovely images sent in already and we are hoping to create a wonderful display of your pawed friends.
To celebrate the year of the dog for Chinese New Year, our theme of the week will be based around Paw Patrol. All activities will be focused around the characters from the ever so popular animated series. If your child has a Paw Patrol toy, costume or game that they would like to bring in they are more than welcome to share it in nursery.
On Friday we will be celebrating Chinese New Year in the traditional way by participating in a range of traditional themed activities for the children to engage in.
Here is a video of the story of Chinese New Year.
Our story next week will be the wonderful Handa’s Surprise. The children will be learning all about the wild animals that live in Africa, they will explore and get to taste the exotic fruits that Handa was going to give her friend Akeyo and the retelling of the story by acting out the events that took place on Handa’s journey. Please enjoy this animated version of Handa’s Surprise with your child.
It was our first ever visit to forest school and words can not express how well the children behaved and engaged within their new environment. Both the morning and afternoon nursery children did themselves proud and have made me feel, extremely proud to be their nursery teacher.
We took a slow walk up to the forest and I am pleased to say, the children walked in a sensible line. We entered into forest school and we were greeted by the wonderful forest school instructor Jason, who was sat by an open fire. Some of the children were amazed to see the open fire but they all listened and followed our instructions.
While we were there we explored and played to our hearts content and boy did we enjoy ourselves, the more adventurous of the children climbed the rope ladder, cut and gathered wood for the fire and even swung from the rope swing. After we had our play, it was time for a light snack. Jason stoked the fire and put the popcorn on. Take a look at our adventure in the forest…
Its been a swashbuckling week and thoroughly enjoyed by all. Our pirate week has captivated the children’s imaginations and they sailed the high seas of Peters Hill in true pirate fashion! Take a look at our pictures.
The highly anticipated superhero week arrived and our wonderful children really did get into character. They enjoyed making masks, rescuing their friends from the villains and not to mention taking part in a science experiment, where they had to predict what material would melt the ice the quickest to rescue the vegetables that had been frozen in the ice by the evil pea
The children put their predicting skills to the test and predicted which material would melt the ice the quickest. The children had to choose from sugar, salt, tools and water. They then tested their predictions by applying the materials to the ice. We found out that water melted the ice and freed the vegetables in the quickest time. Well Done children!
Just a quick reminder that your children will be visiting forest school next week.
