    Today we had some very special visitors in our nursery. We invited our Mum/Nan/Auntie to come and join us for a stay and play session.

    First of all we sang ‘ Gods Love Is’ and I’m so special’.

    Then we had the opportunity to:

    1) Make a bracelet.

    2) Plant a seed.

    3) Create some beautiful flowers.

    4) Count special hearts and match to the correct numeral.

    5) A special picture in our Mothers day Photo booth.

    As it was a special day for our Mum’s we treated them to a mini afternoon tea with delicious scones and cakes.

    Finally we gathered back together and sand some nursery rhymes and listened to the story ‘ Guess How Much I Love You’.

    We talked about Ash Wednesday being the start of Lent.

    Mrs Ashton gave us our ashes, we thought about Jesus and then said a special prayer.

    If we didn’t want to have ashes on our head Mrs Ashton said a special blessing.

    On World Book Day as a school our  focus was mathematics.

    We listened to the stories ‘ Ten In The Bed and Five Little Monkeys Jumping on The Bed’.

    The children counted the bears sleeping in the bed.

     

    The children came to Nursery dressed in their pyjamas. The children were given the opportunity to bring in their favourite book from home. They talked about why it was their favourite book.

    On Wednesday we got to go on the book bus. We really enjoyed it. It was lovely to look at all the different books. Some of us bought a special book and got to take it home. Miss Simpson also bought some special books for us to look at in nursery.

    Today we made and ate some tasty pancakes. Look at us flipping them in the pan, it was lots of fun and made us laugh.

    Miss Simpson asked us what our favourite pancake toppings are.

    Here are a few fun ways that you can help your child develop their early writing skills over the half term holiday.

    Using paint is always a fun way to mark make. You can do this on a small or big scale. Put some paint on a tray/plate and get a ball. Ask your child to roll the ball in different movements.

    Use different sized brushes and ask the children to ‘paint’ the fence using horizontal and vertical movements. You could just fill a bucket with water rather than use paint if you don’t really want your fences painted. The movement is the important bit.

    You could use sand or rice and ask your child to mark make using a range of household objects.

    We have been busy counting with hearts this week. We had to recognise the numeral on the heart and count out the correct amount of hearts.

    These heart crumpets were a very tasty snack!

    We explored different media and materials.

    We decorated a delicious pink wafer biscuit and got to take it home.

    This week we have been estimating during number time. Miss Simpson had a big circle that was filled with hearts. We had to estimate how many children we could fit in the hoop. Our estimations were fantastic. We decided to try it different ways sat down, stood in the hoop and lay down. It was lots of fun and really helped us to think about amounts in different ways.

    In Nursery this week we have been developing our fine and gross  motor skills for writing by making big movements with the paint brush. We really enjoyed painting the fences.
