This week we celebrated the end of Black History month with a carnival. We wore our hats, necklaces and held our shakers that we made in class. We sang our song ‘Kye Kye Kule” as we walked around the outside area. All the children had great fun and we celebrated afterwards with a banana muffin and banana milkshake.
This Tuesday, Nursery visited Mary’s garden for the first time. We talked about Mary and Jesus. We prayed to Mary with the Hail Mary prayer. We looked at the rosary and explained what it was. The children all joined in with the prayer putting their hands together.
This week we have been exploring yellow as our colour of the week. We have been reading the story Handa’s Surprise, a story set in Africa. We talked about the different animals in the story and the fruit they took from Handa’s basket. We then painted pictures of all the lovely fruit using the correct colours.
This week in nursery we have been looking at the story of Elmer and how he is different. We spoke about what colours he was and how he wanted to be the same as the other elephants. We made our own Elmer using paintings, college and colouring pencils. Our colour of the week is Red!
The children are beginning to settle more into nursery this week, exploring the inside and garden areas. This week we have been painting our own self portraits to go up on our first class display. The children looked at their faces and uses the colours they needed to make their faces.
The children have settled really well into nursery this week. It has been lovely to see them in their new uniform and making new friends. Thank you for your patience in the settling in process as this is vital for your child’s learning and development.
The children had a wonderful time at the Teddy Bear’s Picnic. We had our picnic inside, due to the weather and all children sat with their teddy, enjoying their food.
Thank you to all the parents who came to look at their child’s me book and profiles over the last two days. The children enjoyed sharing what they have been learning about this year with you.
Thank you to all the parents who have supported their child through out this year and worked alongside the nursery staff. The children have made very good progress this year and are now ready to continue their next learning journey in Reception!!
Last week, all the children went to the seaside. We went by DLR and C2C train to Chalkwell. The children (and parents) had a wonderful time, exploring the sand and sea.
