This week in Nursery we had fun using the Class tree house to support our learning! We blocked out all light by covering the tree house windows so it was nice and dark. We then used torches and glow sticks to experiment with different light sources.

We have also been practising our fine motor skills. We used scissors to cut out Christmas crackers; this was tricky because we are only just learning how to hold the scissors correctly. We are also practising how to hold our writing tools when mark making.

Finally at the end of a very busy week of learning, we all enjoyed decorating our class Christmas tree which now looks really festive. Da iawn Nursery!

This week in Nursery we have been learning all about the religious celebration, Hanukkah. We discussed the Jewish Festival of Light and the miracle of the temple of light; this burned for 8 days on just one day’s oil. We created our own Menorah candle pictures to honour this special celebration.

 

This week we began our Christmas celebrations early. We have now filmed our Christmas DVD and we had lots of fun dressing up in our Star costumes. We sparkled and shined on stage. We cannot wait for everyone to see our performance. 

 

Have a lovely weekend and stay safe.

 What an adventurous week we have had in Nursery!
We enjoyed watching Peter Pan chase his own shadow and learning all about our own shadows and how they change depending on how we block the light. We also had lots of fun working together using chalk to draw an outline of the shadows we all made. For our number activity this week, we have been using objects to help us learn how to count up to 10.


We spent lots of time in the school hall learning songs and practising for our Christmas concert DVD which we know you will love. We cannot wait to dress up in our star costumes and sing our loudest for everyone to hear!

Lastly, today was a very special day. Together, we raised money for Breast Cancer Awareness by dressing up in pink. We are very grateful for all your kind donations.

We hope you have a lovely weekend, see you next week.

This week in Nursery we have been making our own musical instruments! We used straws to make our own pan flutes. We created songs and sounds with our new instruments.

We have also been learning all about the number 5. This made us all smile because we used the nursery rhyme ‘5 Little Ducks’ to help us learn.

Our fun continued with ‘Fitness Friday’ where where we all pretended to be jungle animals! We roared like Lions, stomped around like Elephants and stretched tall like Giraffes, so we are all ready for the weekend.

This week in Nursery we started our new ‘light and sound’ topic. We really enjoyed going on a ‘light and sound’ walk where we listened closely for all the different noises we could hear inside and outside. We also talked about different sources of light including sunlight and man made sources such as electricity.

On Wednesday, in honour of Armistice Day, we took time to have a moment of silence and then watch a very special recorded assembly by our year 6 class, which was fantastic.

On Friday we raised lots of money for Children In Need day and we are so grateful for all your generous donations, thank you. We had a fun time in non-school uniform and enjoyed all of the Pudsey Bear activities. We look forward to announcing the winner of our Nursery Pudsey bear raffle on Monday!

Bonfire Night

We have had a very creative week in Nursery. In addition to learning our numbers and Jolly Phonics, we have been learning all about Guy Fawkes and Bonfire night. We used our ICT skills this week to create our own firework pictures on Hwb. We constructed our own bonfire out of materials we found in our little woodland area. We then sat around our bonfire and enjoyed marshmallows which we pretended to toast.  

 

Also, fireman Sam helped us understand how important it is to stay safe on Bonfire night by sharing his safety tips. 

 

We hope you all have a lovely weekend and see you all Monday. 

Halloween Party!

We have had another fantastic week in Nursery!

We have been working hard learning to retell our Gingerbread Man story, so this week we decided to create our own gingerbread men using flavoured dough. We just hope they don’t try and run away too!

In maths we have been learning lots of new number rhymes and the animals in ‘Number Zoo’ are helping us count from 1-10.

Most importantly this week, we have been having lots of Halloween fun! We made our own pumpkin faces using apple printing and enjoyed listening to our book of the week ‘Room on The Broom’. But best of all was our fun filled class Halloween Party, where we dressed up in our spookiest costumes! We played pass the parcel, ate delicious hotdogs and danced to our favourite songs.

Have a wonderful half term and stay safe.

Prynhawn da.

What a fantastic week we have had in Nursery, it is hard to know where to start.

We welcomed a new member to our class which was really exciting because we love making new friends and adding to our nursery team.   We have also been working very hard learning Welsh and practising our skills. We have done this with our friends Fflic and Fflac who have helped us learn how to ask and answer ‘pwy wyt ti?’   Importantly we had a very special assembly about the Welsh Ambulance Service.  We talked all about life saving skills and when to call 999 in an emergency.

There was another big event with a visit from the school photographer.  We were all looking our best to have our first school photograph taken and this includes with our brothers and sisters for some of us.  We cannot wait for you to see the photographs!

We would also like to take this opportunity to say how grateful we all are and to thank you for all the donations we have received in readiness for the upcoming Harvest Festival.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

Well, have we had another great week in Nursery!

In maths we are learning our numbers 1-10 and we are all now budding detectives after really enjoying our number hunt outside in the playground.

What made us all happy and smile this week was learning new Nursery rhymes, which we all sang together as a class.

This week our role play area became a Post Office, where we posted the letters we had written to our friends.

Importantly, we want to say a big thank you for making our Friday morning extra special this week. You helped us raise money for our Macmillan Coffee Morning and we are very grateful for your support.  Also, we enjoyed delicious milkshakes and tasty cupcakes in the process of raising money, thank you from us all!

People Who Help Us

WOW, have we been busy!

Nursery class have been exploring our topic ‘People who help us’. We made thank you videos for all the different professionals that work hard to keep us all safe including doctors, nurses, policemen, paramedics, postal workers, shop assistants and many more. We have had lots of fun in our doctor’s surgery role play area, learning how to make the teddies all better. We enjoyed dressing up as lollypop men and ladies, so we all understand the importance of road safely. Another important safety topic which we discussed is fire safety where we dressed up as members of the fire brigade and put out our own pretend fires.

Throughout the weeks we have enjoyed fiction and non-fiction books around our special topic. We found out lots of information and facts on the special roles of people who help us including, uniforms, transport and lots more.

What made us all happy was making friends and welcoming new members into our classroom team.
