We have had a very busy time! 

We have welcomed lots of lovely new children who are learning from the fantastic role models of the older Nursery children. 

We have welcomed a new member of staff Miss Jones and are also working with a student teacher from the Bradford SCITT Mrs Maskill.

So,we have been learning about arctic animals and have used some of our lovely new equipment such as a light up iceberg and a marketplace which we made into a travel agents.

We have learnt about Chinese New Year and loved having a Chinese restaurant and eating real noodles and prawn crackers.

Steven Brown has been our British artist for this half term and we have used our mini studios to create art work inspired by him.

December 2019

We have had a very busy time in Nursery. The children have been learning a lot and working together well.

 They are such a lovely bunch who are very kind and caring to each other ...most of the time!

We have looked at another British Artist...Cornelia Parker.  We have copied her silver curtain.

We have looked at the festivals of Diwali and of Christmas. We can talk about the different things that happen when we celebrate a festival; different food, decorations, new clothes, parties, and sometimes presents.

We have been working hard in Maths at pattern making and sorting. We have a Maths rich environment and are using a lot of Maths skills at tidy up times where we match and count things onto the shelves.

We love a good story and are building up a selection of favourites:

Dirty Bertie.

Don’t do that Kittie Kilroy.

The book with no pictures 

and a new favourite Hector ..the dog who draws his dreams. 

We have been using our road outside and have set up a cinema, a hospital, a cafe and a police station which have all been very popular.

 

Nursery

 Welcome to all our Nursery parents.

Our staff this term are:

Janet Blakeley Nursery Teacher.

Jennie O’Leary Nursery Teaching Assistant.

Lauren Richardson Nursery Teaching Assistant.

Claire Maskill   SCITT teacher starting her teacher training with us.

We have had a lovely first week back and have welcomed lots of new children.

We have read the stories about Foxy and made some rock buns to take home just like they did in the book....except we didn’t burn ours. 

 

This is is the plan for our first half term at school. It is very open to change as we use the children’s interests to promote learning.  It is a rough guide.

We have had a very busy half term

We have learnt a lot about sorting and patterns in Maths.

We are enjoying telling stories and acting them out at group times.

We are building up a bank of favourite stories like “Owl babies” and “The book with no pictures.”

Our pictures in the style of Bridget Riley make a great display in the messy room. She is a British artist who is the news a lot at the moment.
