Mrs Wilding's Words Summer 11
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. We'll be putting pictures up on the website next week.
The nursery classes have created some lovely rainbow pictures this week and have talked about weather in general. With the return of 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) in the garden area.
Transition children have continued learning about life cycles, their similarities and differences. They have learnt about symmetry as they made butterfly pictures. Their caterpillars are now in the chrysalis stage so hopefully will be butterflies before the end of term.
We have had lots of new children visiting this week in preparation for their start in the Autumn Term and your children have shown great kindness to them.
During the week commencing 10 July the nursery children will be learning about holidays, the colour blue, the numbers 1-10 and the letter l. We will not be doing “Show and tell” this week as so close to the end of the year there are a lot of things to go home and we wish to avoid a special toy getting mislaid. Transition children will be learning about holidays and the letter q.
12 July is our “Fun Morning” (yes all our mornings are fun but this is our end of term let your hair down a bit morning!). Hopefully the weather will be good as we hope to do lots of water play in the garden. It would be helpful if the children could wear beach shoes if they have them and bring in spare clothes, swim clothes and a towel. All children are invited to attend from 8.30-12.00 even if it is not a regular session for them.
14 July is our end of term.
