    As always, Our World Book Day was a great success. We love to do it as it encourages such a passion for books and the children gain so much from the activities and discussions created at school by their teachers.

    From Mrs Ainsley

    This week it has been heartwarming to see your children engaged in role play based around being in a hospital, doctor’s surgery or baby clinic. We forget sometimes that these children are only 2, 3 and 4 years old and their kind, caring and empathic behaviour goes way beyond their years.

    We've had the pleasure of some very helpful firefighters in the Nursery this week. They have followed all our fire safety guidelines and looked after everybody very well. Their training has involved lots of learning of new vocabulary and finding out what their fellow firefighters jobs involve.

    Published 11/12/20, by Hayley Johnston

    From Mrs Ainsley:

    It has been a year, I think, which we can all look back on and see what we have achieved in all areas of our lives. Many would say it has been the hardest of times and what has been achieved? I like to look at the positives as much as possible and I see people who have overcome worries, adapted in ways we never thought possible and created safe, stimulating environments for their children.

    The beginning of our seasonal festivities was off to a great start this week with lots of fun and excitement: decorating the Christmas tree, the elves arriving in style, pyjama day and making gingerbread. I think the photos say it all:

    We created our very own Cinderella ball today. We made regal crowns and learnt to dance the waltz.

    Kindness was also a running theme through the week. We thought about the behaviour of the ugly sisters and the stepmother, how we may have felt and how important it is to always be kind with our words.

    I would like to take the opportunity to remind you of some important dates for your diary:

    • On Friday 4th December we will be having a pyjama day to raise money for Ronald McDonald House
    • On Friday 11th December, will be performing an array of Christmas songs and would like the children to wear a Christmas jumper
    • On Monday 14th December, we will be having our Nursery Christmas party and children will be able to wear their party clothes
    • Last day of term, Wednesday 16th December. 12pm for part-time children, 3pm for full-time children.  There will be no after school care on this day.

    Published 20/11/20, by Hayley Johnston

    Colour has been the focus in our classroom this week with Science playing a part in it. The children explored what would happen when vinegar with food colouring was dripped onto icing sugar. Look at the results!

     

    The children have also been observing the changing colours of the season and then with a variety of media, creating beautiful pictures.

    Nursery are also on their second week of P.E with Miss Hudson, the Junior Girls’ P.E teacher. They have all eagerly anticipated her arrival and have all thoroughly enjoyed their new adventure.
