Foundation One - Mick Inkpen

Hello and welcome to our nursery class page especially to all our new starters. We will look forward to sharing our activities with you.

 

The nursery team has two teachers Miss Leigh-Browne who works Mondays and Tuesdays and Mrs. Marriott who works Weds/Thurs/Fri. We also have three teaching assistants Mrs. Betts, Mrs Chafer and Mrs Richardson.

 

This week we have welcomed lots of new children and have been busy helping them to learn our daily routine and expectations.

 

This year each class has been paired with an author and the nursery author is Mick Inkpen. We are going to introduce our topic on colour by reading The Blue Balloon. We are looking forward to taking part in lots of exciting activities. Keep checking this page to see our photographs.

 

If you have any questions, worries or concerns please feel free to speak to a member of staff.

We have started discovering the world of colour. We shared a lovely story "Wow " said the owl about a baby owl who wakes up during the daytime to discover all the beautiful colours around him.

We had great fun walking through our rainbow curtain and then blowing bubbles to see the different colours.

We have enjoyed reading our first Mick Inkpen story The Blue Balloon. We went outside and let some blue balloons flyaway. We all had a go at writing a name label for our balloon to take home.

We have been investigating  the world around us by discovering the beautiful autumn colours. Some children have collected things  for our autumn display. We have been able to observe and discuss the changes taking place around us. We enjoyed going on an autumn walk looking for signs of autumn around our school.

We had great fun during culture week learning about Turkey and Latvia. We made Turkish cookies which were yummy!! We found the countries on a map and made flags. We learnt about the different food and Gustav's daddy came in to nursery to tell us all about Latvia. He taught us how to sing a nursery rhyme in Latvian and we learnt how to say hello in both languages.

Hello and welcome back to our Spring Term news especially to all our new families. Our new children are settling in well and are learning our rainbow rules and routines.

Our topic this term is Once Upon a Time in a castle.

As many of you are aware the link author for Nursery is Mick Inkpen so we began our topic by reading his book "Wibbly Pig's Garden". We had great fun making a beanstalk and drawing pictures of creepy crawlies to hide underneath the leaves. Don't forget to see if you can find any when you come into nursery!
