We would like to say hello and welcome back to all of our parents and children and especially to our new families.
This week we are beginning to talk about ourselves and people who are important to us. We have had lots of discussions and are planning to paint some portraits and pictures of our homes soon.
Thank you to everyone that came and supported us at our Christmas sing-a-long. The children looked great dressed up in their Santa, Christmas tree, reindeer and star costumes. They all joined in so well and sang beautifully.
This week we had a visit from the district nurse who came to show the children how we wash our hands properly and to raise awareness of the importance of good hand washing. The children took part in a hand washing activity with emphasis on the importance of using soap. They then observed their hands under a special UV light to see how well they had washed them.
The children have enjoyed taking part in different craft activities to mark this day. This included making fingerprint poppy wreaths and poppies using fruit and vegetables.
This week we are busy creating firework pictures for our display. The children have so far used a range of materials including paint, paper and chalk. We have discussed colour, texture and sounds associated with fireworks and bonfire night.
We would like to say a big thank you to everybody from nursery and school who donated items for our Autumn food bank collection. All items were very much appreciated and we thank you for your support.
We would like to say a big thank you to everybody that donated their unwanted items of clothing to bags2school. We appreciate your support and will let you all know when the next collection will be.
We had a fun filled afternoon of autumn themed arts and crafts today. Activities on offer included leaf rubbings, leaf collage, crown making and pinecone painting. The children made some wonderful creations and it was lovely to see parents and grandparents coming along to support this and join in the fun.
This week the children have been exploring our Autumn themed interest table. We have discussed the size and texture of objects, including pumpkins, horse chestnuts and pine cones. We look forward to cooking with our Autumn vegetables soon.
On Tuesday, we enjoyed celebrating International talk like a pirate day with killigarth class. The children enjoyed making pirate treasure crispy cakes, taking part in a pirate themed assembly and going on a treasure hunt on the field. A good day was had by all and the staff and children looked great dressed up in their pirate costumes
