As part of the children’s transition into Reception class, we have been making regular visits to the main school.
The children had the opportunity to meet the cook and kitchen staff and try out collecting their knives and forks, and balancing their trays. They took their ‘pretend’ lunches to the special lunchtime tables and chairs. They can’t wait to try the dinners!
The children have also made visits to the Reception classroom where they have met their new teacher and had the opportunity to try out some new activities. Once a week, the children join in with morning playtime in the main school playground and some of them enjoy playing with their older siblings. On Wednesday, the children took part in the Hands Liturgy. They sat well throughout the Liturgy and happily joined in with the songs.
They are looking forward to joining the big school.
If you went down to Beckenham Place Park last Friday 7th July, you were in for a big surprise. The Nursery children, their parents and lots of teddies had come together for a special picnic to celebrate the end of the school year. It was a very hot morning and the children were delighted to cool off in the water fountains at the park. They also played on the swings, climbing frames and roundabouts. It was great fun for everybody and we all cooled off with an ice lolly. Thank you parents, grandparents and carers for coming along to join us.
Nursery went on a Number Hunt around the school. We went to the big playground, visited the office, Year 5, Year 2 and went upstairs to Mrs Jarvis office. We found lots of numbers everywhere! Then we matched up the small Numicon with the giant Numicon. What a busy morning.
Look what we did in our first week at Nursery!
