Mary, Mother of Jesus 🙏🏼
Today in our RE lesson, we have been learning about Mary.
We talked about Mary being the Mother of Jesus and that
we celebrate Mary in the months of May and October.
We went on a walk around school to see if we could find any statues of Mary.
We found one in the prayer garden in the big playground and we found one in the corridor.
We tried to say a little prayer and showed Mary how well we can do our prayer hands.
Well done Nursery, you walked around school so quietly and sensibly 😊

🍁 Nature art 🍁
Today, nursery went on a nature walk on the school field to collect some natural materials for our art work. We found:
We also found some exciting things hiding amongst the trees and leaves. We found:
🍁 A birds nest high up in the trees
🍁 A slug hiding on a rock
🍁 A wiggly worm hiding in the leaves.
Some of us had a turn holding the worm. It was cold and wriggly 🪱
When we went back into class, we stuck all our natural materials on a big piece of paper with some glue. We had lots of messy fun 😁
Well done nursery!

🎆 Firework safety 🎆
Today in nursery, we have been learning how to stay safe around fireworks.
We now know that only adults touch fireworks and that we should keep our pets safe inside because they might get scared by the loud bangs.
To support our learning about fireworks, we made a group firework picture on the whiteboard and then we made our own paintings of fireworks using bright colours and glitter.
This activity also helped us continue with our learning of recognising colours.
Stay safe around fireworks 🎇

☀️ Fun in the sun ☀️
In nursery today, we went into receptions playground to play on the trikes and balance bikes. We had so much fun and had a really good go at pushing the peddles on the tricycles independently.
After, we went into the hall with reception to join in on their music lesson. We played the steelpans with them. It was a little tricky but we had a fantastic time.
Well done Nursery for good sitting and good listening during music.

Super work this week on our fine motor skills in class 🙌 and gross motor skills in PE 🏃♀️
Nursery really enjoy their PE lessons!
In maths we’ve been using positional language to describe where things are - in, on, under and between.
The children also chose to recap bigger and smaller whilst acting out the story from this week, Where’s Spot.
The children have been playing so nicely in the home corner, sharing and taking turns.

Another sunny day in nursery
Today in nursery, we carried on our maths learning about numbers 1&2 and the positions of the bears. We used our positional language to tell our teachers where the bears were on the chairs. We also used our bigger and smaller learning when building towers with the blocks.
To carry on our Literacy learning, We hid Spot in porridge oats to see if we can find and hide him. We also explored different types of sea animals in the water tray outside that was filled with gellibaff. We had so much fun searching for fish and whales. We used the binoculars to search for birds. We found seagulls and pigeons.
We are so happy that it has been sunny enough to go on the slide today. We love playing on the slide 😁☀️
