Nursery would like to request your recycled boxes, plastic bottles, kitchen roll tubes and anything that we can use for junk modelling please. The pirate theme will continue for another week and the children will be making their very own pirate ships using junk modelling.
The nursery children have really embraced our theme of the week and they have brought in their wonderful stories, amazing dressing up costumes and even some of their pirate ships. We even did some pirate yoga today.
On Monday the 14th January all of the children will be permitted to take a book home and return it the following week. If you can document that you have read this book or a book of your child’s choosing at home, in your child’s reading record, your child will then get a tick on the reading rocket and once they receive 10 ticks they will receive a prize. Any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
Happy Reading Nursery!
Next week we will be focusing on the theme of Pirates, based on what we have observed the children doing since they have returned to nursery. Our book of the week is ‘Pirate Pete and his Smelly Feet’ as we will be developing the children’s ability to identify rhyme in the spoken word. Activities will include creative crafts, treasure hunts, team pirate ship building, counting treasure and many, many more activities that are going to be fun.
If your child has got any Pirate books, costumes or figures they would like to share with us in nursery then they are more than welcome to.
Also the children will be making telescopes, so if you have any kitchen roll tubes we would very much appreciate them please.
The children have come back to nursery bursting with energy and with a real love for learning. We have most certainly missed their wonderful personalities and it has been a joy to see them return and get back into the swing of things with an eager curiosity, that makes our jobs so worthwhile. I would also like to welcome our new January intake of children who settled in really well today and were super brave without their mommies, daddies and grown up’s for the very first time today. Big thumbs up and we cant wait to see you again on Monday. Take a look at what we have been up to this week.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
If your child is due to start school this September 2019, then the deadline to apply for a school of your choice is Tuesday 15th January 2019.
The nursery team and I would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year and a huge welcome back. We have got a very exciting term ahead and we can not wait to welcome you all back and hear about the wonderful adventures you have had while you haven’t been at nursery.
