Mrs Wilding’s Weekly Words Summer 11
Head over heels in excitement about the thought of Nursery Sports Day and wow what a Sports Day! Your children never fail to astound me and showed depths of resilience beyond their years, an ability to follow instructions and a huge willingness to take part. You must be very proud parents and deservedly so.
The nursery classes have created some lovely rainbow pictures this week and have made sun-catchers with old CDs, rain makers to create the sound of rain, windmills which they tried to operate using electric fans, sun collages with shapes and have talked about weather in general. With the sun and heat they have done lots of talking about protecting their skin and have been using the shade of home-made tents (sheets over washing lines and fabrics pegged to fences) in the garden area.
Transition children have continued learning about minibeasts, their similarities and differences. They played the minibeast “What am I?” game, talked about exo-skeletons, have made spiders using clay and chenille stems and created bee pictures from shapes.
New children have been visiting again this week in preparation for their start in the Autumn term and, as always, your children have shown great kindness to them.
