September and October 2016.

Our new children are settling in well and making new friends.

We are having fun and learning so much with all our activities.

Instead of just “Run, Run as fast as you can” we tried lots of different ways for the Gingerbread Man to get away such as “hop, hop, jump, jump, walk, walk and skip, skip.”

We could count out 5 Woolly Sheep and 5 fences to make a pen for them like it is in our song.

 

December 2016

We used the very big bricks for the first time and made some super models.

IMG_0776 IMG_0777

 

 

 

 

 

We are making super models and talking about the shapes.

We have also talked about the Mayor of Trafford coming for afternoon tea because now we are Urmston Primary School so we made our own pretend cafe for afternoon tea.

We made our own scones for our afternoon tea- Yummy!

 

IMG_0799 IMG_0818 IMG_0819

 

 

 

 

We’ve been describing shapes and sorting them into sets…pointy or curved. So clever!

We have been on a phonics card hunt, saying the letter sound and practising saying the sounds for a word on the back. Yippee! We’re starting to read!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

September 2014. Our children are learning to be independent, changing their own books and putting their bags away. They are also learning to be helpful especially when it is their turn to be a “Busy Bee” helper and they can get the milk ready.

Nursery children loved having “pancake races”, tossing “pancakes” and eating pancakes!

IMG_0095IMG_0094IMG_0088IMG_0078

Wow! What a fantastic effort on Red Nose Day. Nursery children made “red nose buns and raised £101.44p. Thank you so much children and all the parents who donated more and helped to sell the buns on the day .
