Nursery News

Friday 1st March 2024

This week, we have been in RE, we have been learning about the signs of lent. We have used charcoal to draw ash crosses on self-portraits, mixed a range of shades of purple to paint with. We have planted seeds and talked about our understanding of seeds and plants growing and reflected on how we are being kind and helpful to grow closer to God.

In mathematics, we have been counting and recording numbers, developing our number formations and using five frames to record scores. We have enjoyed singing number songs and using numbers in our play and conversations.

In literacy, we have started to learn our phonics. We can identify the picture of each sound now! We have listened to many stories including our key texts Oliver’s Fruits Salad and Oliver’s vegetables. We have enjoyed exploring how we can grow food from seeds and understanding that all out fruit and vegetables come from plants and sharing our experiences of growing.

We have enjoyed observational painting of daffodils and mixing colours. We have enjoyed learning out our local area and making treasure maps and maps that show our school and how we get to school. It has been another wonderful week in Nursery Gabriel.

Next week is world book week and to celebrate Nursery will be able to dress up as a book character on Thursday 7th March. Nursery pupils are NOT required to pay the £3 activity fee that the rest of the school are being asked to pay We will be participating in our special world book week activities. Please no football kits.

As part of our almsgiving call this Lent, our Mini Vinnies would like us to support two very special causes. The first is for the charity HCPT. They are a Catholic charity that organise for disabled and disadvantaged children and adults to go on a special pilgrimage to Lourdes. It is a charity that is very close to the hearts of some of our children and families at Holy Family. The Mini Vinnies would also like to support the greatly admired Mr Bascombe as he works to get back onto the Badminton court after his illness. All of the money that we raise this Lent will be shared equally between the two causes. On Wednesday 27th March Nursery Gabriel will be raising money for the chosen Lent charities this year by hosting a Wacky Wednesday’ where children can come to school in their choice of attire. We are encouraging pupils to be as outrageous, colourful and expressive as they like with their outfit which they will wear to school that day. Please can each child donate £1 on the day.

 

Kind regards,

Welcome to Spring B, our topic this term is Big Wide World and we will be exploring the world through three key texts Oliver’s Fruit Salad, Handa’s Surprise and Naughty Bus.

 

We started the week by listening to Mr Wolf’s Pancakes and enjoyed measuring and mixing up some ingredients to make our own pancakes!

 

In RE, we have begun our journey from Lent to Easter by learning about Ash Wednesday and understanding that Lent is a special time to grow closer to God so we made our own Lent promise leaves about how we can be more helpful towards others and show love.

 

We have listened to Oliver’s fruit salad and really enjoyed the fruit tasting experience. We used lots of vocabulary to describe the fruit using our sight, touch and taste senses. We have begun to discuss where different fruit and vegetables come from.

 

We have started our phonics learning this week by learning the picture names and sounds to the first 20 letters please ask us at home to tell you what we can recall it will help us to embed the learning.

 

We have begun our poetry competition and everyone has done a wonderful job so far!

 

We have enjoyed lots of singing, stories, building, role play, arts and crafts, writing, drawing and we even got to paint prints and portraits using fruit and vegetables which was messy and fun.

 

Notices

 

Well done on uniform standards and attendance it has made such a significant difference to our routine and learning having everyone in and everyone arriving on time. Thank you.

 

Thank you for the continued support with donations and fruit this week that keeps our learning moving.

 

We are going to be doing a lot around growing and would really benefit from compost if anyone is able to source some that would be really appreciated.

 

Other donations needed are tissues, salt, foil, plant pots small and medium sized.

 

Thank you so much everyone.

Wow we can’t believe it is the half term already! It has been a fantastic six weeks back and we have made so much progress.

This week in RE, we have been learning more about our purpose as Catholics and as citizens of society to show love and kindness to others. We really enjoyed helping the wider community this week by hosting our very own community bike and scooter wash, Mr Doherty even came by to see us in action. Look out for the pictures on ARC!  We worked so well together as a team to clean all the bikes and scooters. We have also been busy making pictures, cards and paintings for those we love and care about and developing our creative and fine motor skills as we draw and write names on our pictures and cards.

In mathematics, we have been helping Goldilocks make things right with the three bears by comparing capacity and filling up containers with the appropriate amounts of porridge and learning new key mathematical vocabulary.

In Literacy, we have been developing our story telling skills by thinking of our own stories and retelling them to our teacher. Our work has been published and displayed in an anthology and we are not only authors but also illustrators because we drew pictures for out stories too!

In Topic, we have used our knowledge of the Antarctic to plan a trip to help reunite Penguin with his lost friend. We made maps, built boats, made missing posters and packed appropriate clothing for the trip.

We have also enjoyed name writing, colour mixing, listening to stories, action songs, exploring the mud kitchen, building and puddle jumping!

 

Notices

Thank you to all those who brought in their scooters and bikes for the community bike and scooter wash, the children really enjoyed taking on this responsibility and working together as a team.

After halt term, we will be starting the whole school poetry competition. Each child will be allocated a day to perform a nursery rhyme to the class. Please positively support your child to learn a nursery rhyme of their choice. The rota will be posted outside the classroom on Monday 19th February and will commence on Tuesday 20th February so please be prepared.

The attendance and late arrivals has significantly improved and this has had a positive impact on the whole class well done everyone, keep it up I have every faith we will make it to the top of the attendance board!

Also, the uniform standards have been raised so thank you for your co-operation in keeping our standards high.

Have a wonderful and well deserved half term and I look forward to seeing young all in Spring B.

Kind regards,

The Nursery Team

Friday 2nd February 2023

The last two weeks have been jammed pack with so much fun and learning.

In RE, we have deepened our knowledge and understanding of God’s love and know that Jesus was born for everyone to help them be kind and show love to others through their actions. We are becoming more helpful, conscientious and kind members of the school community. We have listened to the parables The Good Samaritan and The Good Shepard.

In mathematics, we are becoming Super Subitisers by subitising numbers up to 4. We are reciting numbers in order to 20. We have been comparing quantities and learner to recognise who has more, fewer and discussing these concepts throughout play and explorations. We have been singing number songs and recognising and representing numerals.

In Literacy, we have been developing our knowledge and understanding of penguins and learned the life cycle of a penguin through fact books, and fiction stories The Emperor’s Egg, Don’t be afraid Little Pip and I Am Small. We have also listened to the story The Blue Balloon by Mick Ink Pen and have enjoyed playing with, painting with and making our own balloons. We have been telling our own stories and are authors and illustrators.

In Topic, we have been learning about the beginning of our lifecycle from baby to child and discussed the we have made by looking at pictures of the past (baby photos) and pictures of us at Nursery now and all the wonderful things we have learned how to do.

Once the children have cleaned it, we will return it to the scooter park to be collected at the end of the day. It would be lovely to have as many as possible

 

The annual oracy event is about to begin and this year it is a whole school poetry performance competition. Nursery are invited to learn and perform a nursery rhyme in front of the class. There will a rota made and put up outside the classroom doors so you will know which day your child will be performing on.

Friday 19th January 2024

This week in RE, we have been recalling the Nativity story and learning about the Epiphany. We understand that the Three wise men followed the brightest star to Jesus and took him gifts to show their love and respect for the new king. We have been re-enacting these stories through small world play, making chalk stars, drawing maps and developing fine motor skills through wrapping gifts and writing labels to give to people we love.

In literacy, we have continued to learn about penguins and Antarctica. We have made our own penguins using arts and craft materials. We have listened to What the Lady bird Heard by Julia Donaldson,  All the way home and The Good Samaritan. We have been showing lots of interest in writing our names and enjoyed developing our letter formation in the salt trays as well as learning to write our names on our drawings and art pieces.

In mathematics, we have been learning about the concepts more and fewer, developing careful counting strategies through 1:1 correspondence and reciting numbers from 1-10 and beyond. We have also been developing our numeral formations.

We have also enjoyed building boats and testing them out in the water tray to investigate if they would sink or float. We use folding skill to make the sails.

We have learned how to take turns in small group board games, building aeroplanes and extending our friendship circles. Some of us have been making chalk maps outside and using them in group role play. We have been investigating the ice and frost outside and discussed melting and freezing.

The nursery gate am opening times are 8:30-8:40am.  Please collect your children promptly at 11.30 so that the children who are staying for the afternoon don’t have to wait too long for their lunch. The amount of late arrivals to Nursery has been increasing please ensure you are bringing your child to school on time and collecting them on time. This supports consistent routine and prevents disruption to learning for your child and others in the class Thank you.

Donations: We are very low on junk modelling items such as cardboard boxes, plastic tubs, egg cartons,  We also need tissues please if possible.

Thank you for then kind detonations of lids, and pasta. We really appreciate all the generosity so thank you so much!

It has been highlighted that uniform standards have been slipping across the school so from next week if your child is not in the correct uniform a reminder will be sent home with your child. Thank you for your co-operation. Please continue to return any school uniform items back if your child has been changed at school. We have run out of girls underwear so please return if you have any at home. Thank you.

Finally, focus weeks have started out very well thank you for returning the planning for your child forms and checking Arc each day to see your child’s observations if it is your child’s focus week. The questions you have been asking on the forms have been lovely to read and I look forward to answering them during parents evening at the end of the term. In the meantime, if you have any concerns or want to discuss your child’s progress before then I am happy to arrange a meeting please email the nursery with your request.

Friday 12th January 2024

Happy new year everyone and welcome to the Spring term. It has already got off to an excellent start with so much reconnecting and learning this week.

 

We have begun our new topic ‘When I was younger’ and will be focussing on how we have changed since we were babies and how much we have achieved already through the new skills we have learned as we have grown.

 

In Literacy, we have taken trip to Antarctica to meet the Emperor penguins and learn about the special roles they have in looking after a chick and surviving in a cold and icy habitat.

 

This has linked nicely into mathematics where we have been focusing on measurement, in particular height, and have been using cubes to measure and compare the height of penguins. This has lead on to noticing and discussing height in other objects and one another. We have also been learning some new counting nursery rhymes ‘Five little speckled frogs’ and ‘Five little men on a flying saucer’ and are beginning to participate in solving simple subtraction number problems.

 

In RE, we have recalled the Nativity story through small world play and begun our weekly collective worships.

 

Also this week we have been using everyday objects to paint with such as cups and forks, we have been drawing penguins following a six part instruction which has helped us to draw shapes more effectively and we have been exploring why ice melts in our Antarctic themed activity tray.

 

We have been enjoying stories, writing our names, playing games and role play in larger groups, role playing hospitals and chefs and making boats using the junk modelling.

 

Such a fantastic start to the Spring term!

 

Notices

Thank you so much for all the donations we really appreciate it so much.

Thank you for the baby photos I have thoroughly enjoyed receiving them they are extremely precious and I look forward to sharing them with the children to support their topic learning this term.

 

This term, each week there will be focus children who will be observed more closely and these observations will be shared with you on Arc. I believe everyone is set up and using Arc already but if you are not active and need some help to get going please speak to me I will be happy to assist. You will be notified the week before of your child focus week and will be asked to fill out a small planning for your child learning form I will also ask that you share a few photos on Arc from learning and experiences of home during that week.

 

Please ensure your child is in the correct uniform and shoes for Nursery.

 

The nursery gate am opening times are 8:30-8:40am.  Please collect your children promptly at 11.30 so that the children who are staying for the afternoon don’t have to wait too long for their lunch.

 

Thank you all for your continued support and here’s to a 2024 full of learning and positive growth.

This week, we have started Nursery and have really enjoyed making new friends, exploring our indoor and outdoor classrooms and becoming familiar with the new adults who are going to help us grow and learn this year. We have tried really hard to say goodbye to our mummies and daddies at the door and we know where to hang up our coats and put our water bottles. We have enjoyed lunch together and started to learn some of the daily prayers. We look forward to next week!
