Christmas fun

The Nursery have been busy preparing for Christmas. They made Christmas cards, presents for their mums and dads, wrapped them and wrote labels for them. They did observational paintings of holly with berries.  They practiced preparing for their Nursery Nativity and learned all the words and actions. They performed it to their parents who loved it and were so proud of them! Here are some photos of them being busy.

Dinosaurs in Ice

The dinosaurs got left out on Monday night in water and when we came to Nursery on Tuesday they had frozen. We needed to free them! The children worked together to come up with a plan. The used spoons and spatulas to crack the ice.

The children spent the rest of the morning playing with the ice and finding it in lots of different places. We found one piece of ice with a leaf inside it, it looked really interesting. The children got some hammers from inside and enjoyed smashing it into tiny pieces. They also made different marks in the ice. What a very busy and frosty morning!

Sally Bear’s Baptism

The Nursery were invited to join Sally on her special Baptism day. Sally wore white clothing and she was given her name. We lit the candle and said a prayer. Water was poured over Sally’s head and she was welcomed into God’s family.

The children then looked at their own Baptism photos and we could see lots of similarities.

Fred Bear’s Birthday

In the Nursery the children have been busy preparing for, and celebrating Fred Bear’s Birthday. We read lots of books about birthdays and decided that we would like to have a party  for Fred. The children decided we needed to make cards and give him presents. So they got busy making and writing cards. We then went on the search for some presents he would like; cars and dinosaurs are his favourite. The children wrapped them very carefully, making sure they had enough paper to cover it and using sellotape to secure them. The children came up with the idea that Fred would need to know who the presents were from, so we found some sticky labels and they got busy writing their names. The children also wanted to make cakes to eat at his party and hats to wear. We sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to him, danced and played games. What a great birthday it was!

Preparing for Fred Bear’s Birthday

The Nursery have been preparing for Fred Bear’s birthday. They have made cards; drawing pictures and writing a message inside. They have wrapped presents; making sure they had enough paper to cover the present and sellotaping the paper so that the present didn’t fall out. They remembered to write their names on sticky labels so that Fred knows who the present is from. They also made hats to wear at his party.

They are looking forward to decorating the cakes and celebrating on Friday!

Autumn’s Here

We have been watching things change around us. The weather has been getting colder, the leaves have been falling from the trees and there are lots of pumpkins in the shops. We read ‘Pumpkin Soup’ and decided to make some pumpkin soup ourselves. It was delicious! We discovered there were lots of seeds inside and we had to get them all out. They were very slippery. The children also drew the pumpkins, making lines and circles, with charcoal. They did a fabulous job.

Visits to the big school

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.

Teddy Bears Picnic

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.
