Nursery and Reception held their phonics workshop this morning. Unfortunately not as many parents and carers attended as we had hoped, possibly due to the timing of the workshop. Those who did come along told us that they had found it extremely informative and beneficial. Therefore, if there is enough demand for it, our Nursery and Reception teachers are kindly offering to hold another one in the very near future for those who were unable to attend, perhaps scheduled at a different time of day. Please let your child’s Nursery/Reception teacher know at drop off or pick up if you are interested.
Parents and carers of Nursery and Reception children came into school for a ‘Learn & Share’ morning in their child’s classroom this morning. The children enjoyed showing their parents/carers what they were learning in class and in return, parents/carers hopefully found it useful to find out more about the Early Years curriculum.
Our Early Years staff members have now set up a blog to keep parents and carers of pupils in Reception and Nursery updated on weekly activities in the classroom. The blog can be accessed via the school website under the title ‘Early Years Blog’ on the left hand side.
This week, we have continued our topic about ourselves:
Nursery have been thinking about their families and important people in their lives. They have made some fantastic shape pictures of their houses and have been very creative in the home corner, acting out familiar routines at home.
Reception have been looking at everyone’s baby pictures and talking about how we have changed.
We then used a mirror to draw ourselves.
In Maths we have been counting using different objects.
Mrs Carter came in on Wednesday morning to plant some bulbs and tidy up our outside raised beds. The children in both Nursery and Reception enjoyed weeding, sweeping, digging and planting bulbs and we are very pleased with the end result! We would like to say a big thank you to Mrs Carter for her time.
