28th February 2020
We hope you all enjoyed your half term break. The children all seem to be pleased to see their friends in nursery this week. The sprinkling of snow on Thursday caused great excitement and put our normal plans on hold for the day! But we are enjoying all the activities related to Jack and the Beanstalk. Lots of roleplay in the castle this week with lots of giant voices! We are beginning to do some planting, which we will monitor over the next few weeks. In PE we acted out the story to music and the children made a giant model to put up in the castle. We will be reading various versions of the story, including Jim and the Beanstalk, over the next two weeks.
It was also Pancake Day this week so the children tasted pancakes.
Next Tuesday is book week in the whole school and the children are encouraged to dress up as their favourite book character. The best (homemade costume) in each year group will get a prize.
We are enjoying all the activities related to The Hungry Caterpillar this week and we will carry it over to next week so the children have time to try all the activities. Do ask them to tell you the story and see what they have remembered. We have also been busy making patterns and looking for symmetrical things. Next week we are going to show the children how to paint and print to get symmetrical butterfly.
NURSERY DANCE FESTIVAL PERFORMANCE
Tuesday 11th at 9.00am
We have decided to move the nursery dance performance to the morning of Tuesday the 11th of February. (PM children are invited to come in and dance, then go home and return for a normal session in the afternoon.) Parents/carers will need to bring the children in dressed in their performance clothes. They can then go around to the main hall to watch the performance which will start around 9am. Although please bear with us, as we have to get everyone from the nursery to the hall and this can take some time!
(The rest of the schools performance times have not been changed, this will remain at 2pm.)
Boys-black joggers/trousers white tops and black bow tie
Girls-any colour tee shirts, leggings and RaRa skirts.
(The children will dance in bare feet.)
