This week the children have carried on with the growing theme and we have started reading the story of the Enormous Turnip. We have been watching the beans we planted last week get bigger every day. The children have planted some out on our allotment so hopefully we will be able to taste our own beans before too long!
If you are a keen gardener, or know one, and can spare a vegetable or fruit plant to start us off please talk to Carol.
The children all enjoyed the sports relief scooter rally on Friday. Thank you to those children who kindly lent us their scooters for the day. The children all got a turn and they cheered on their friends. Thank you to all those parent/carers who were able to come and support the event, and a big thank you to Mr. Gordon for organising it.
Books-children are always welcome to borrow books from nursery to share at home, its lovely to see so many children keen to read the books, but please have a check to make sure you don’t have nursery books lying around in your house, as our book boxes are getting a bit depleted! Thank you.

This week we had lots of little book characters in nursery. Well done to all the parent/carers who did all the work of organising costumes! The children enjoyed their day and Mrs Brown took lots of photos.
We have been busy planting beans and peas in little pots inside the classroom during all that bad weather. When the sun came out on Friday Carol took groups of children up to the allotment in the key stage 2 area to get the soil ready for planting. The children have been digging, raking and inspecting the soil for worms and other insects.
She hopes to grow some vegetables and fruits for the children to nurture and then taste. If you are a keen gardener, or know one, and can spare a vegetable or fruit plant to start us off please talk to Carol.
As the children are so keen on the gardening we are going to carry on with the theme of growing next week. We are going to link this to sequencing, so the children can begin to recall and sequence some of the activities they do. You may want to reinforce this skill at home when you read stories to your child, by talking about what happened first, then next and next etc.
