Acorn Class have had a very busy and festive week 🎄 We enjoyed retelling the Christmas Story using Now Press Play. Wearing headphones, we listened to and acted out the key events. We shone brightly in the sky as the star, trotted along the road as the donkey and held on to the baby Jesus and placed him down gently into the manger. We ate popcorn and watched a Christmas movie, danced to Christmas music, ate a delicious Christmas dinner and finished our week with a surprise visit from Father Christmas! 🎅🏻
We were very sad to say goodbye to Rufina this week. We wish her lots of luck in the future and we will all miss her very much!
We would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year. See you all in 2021!
’It’s Christmas, It’s Christmas. Let’s dance round in a ring......’ What great singing and dancing by our nursery children in our performances this week! We hope you enjoyed watching them as much as we enjoyed performing it!
We ended this week with a celebration 🎉 as the best decorated classroom in Foundation Stage. Well done nursery! Our prize is that we can all wear non-uniform on Monday!
We have been very busy getting ready for Christmas this week. Decorating the classroom, wrapping presents, making cards and crackers. We have read lots of Christmas stories and sang Christmas songs.
Next week is our last week before Christmas. We are looking forward to Christmas dinner Wednesday and then we finish on Wednesday afternoon for the holidays. 14 sleeps till Santa! 🎅🏻
We have had another busy week in Acorn Class this week. We have been making Stickman out of play dough, learning all about the number five and learning our Christmas song for our recorded performance next week. Please remember to bring in your outfits on Monday, if you haven’t already!
This afternoon we joined the whole school to perform in ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’. Our part was to sing the ‘5 gold rings’ line. The children did amazingly and we were very proud of them.
Next week we are looking forward to more Christmas activities. We are decorating our classroom with a winter wonderland theme. I will take lots of photos for you all to see.
It has been a very cold end to the week, but it hasn’t stopped us from going outside. We wrapped up warm this morning in our hats and gloves and went out spider web hunting! They looked amazing in the ice and fog. We warmed up inside and virtually met Anita Loughrey, a local author. She read one of her books to us, we played eye spy and we even performed our autumn poem to her, which she really enjoyed.
We have been learning about autumn vegetables this week. We have made soup (which was delicious!) and painted and stamped with different vegetables. We have looked at and explored a range of vegetables and talked about harvest.
Next week our story is ‘Stanley’s Stick’ and we will be starting to make some Christmas decorations to decorate our classroom.
Acorn Class have had a very busy week again this week! We started off the week learning about the Hindu festival Diwali. We watched a video about a family celebrating and talked about all the traditions and celebrations that took place. We made beautiful Rangoli patterns on the playground using poster paint.
We read ‘Owl Babies’ this week and all the children enjoyed colouring a feather to add to our large class owl. (I will add a photo of the finished product on Monday 😊)
We have proudly hung our bunting up in the outside area today. The children all worked hard to create their own flag and I am sure you will agree that it looks great! A big thank you to Mr Kozlowski for helping us to put it up.
Acorn class have been working really hard this week to be independent and put on and take off their own shoes and coats. It has been amazing to see the determination and perseverance from the children with this. Please do continue to encourage this at home!
Acorn Class have had a very busy week this week. Lots of the children had fun exploring the mud kitchen on Tuesday! They made mud cakes, dug big holes and mixed mud hot chocolate. Please send in an all in one suit and wellies if you haven’t already. The children get very muddy and dirty during this activity!
We made poppies on Wednesday and talked about why Remembrance Day is an important day. All the children participated in a two minute silence and we also watched the CBeebies Poppies video.
Nursery finished off the week by making bird feeders. We talked about why they help the birds in the winter and the children were very excited to take them home to hang them.
Wow! What a great start to the new term! The children have all come back to nursery with a big smile and ready to learn
We have started our new topic talking about the changes we can see outside, now that autumn is here and the cold weather is coming. We have been out for an autumn walk and collected leaves to make a 'leaf thread'. These have been hung up in the classroom in our topic area. If you get a chance to go out for a walk this weekend, talk to your child about the changes that you can see outside.
This week we have been learning a poem called 'Why do leaves go crispy?' The children have learnt this really well and we made up actions to go with it. Ask your child to tell you the poem and see if they can remember it!
