Mrs Wilding's Words Lent 10
The children have had a busy week both indoors and outdoors and have had enormous fun discovering a huge amount of frogspawn. Transition children have been learning about Easter and listening to related stories. They have made Easter baskets and some lovely chick puppets.
The younger children have been investigating shapes with curves and have made some lovely St Patrick’s Day pictures of shamrocks. Fine motor skills have been developed with scissor and mark making activities and as always lots of gross motor development has taken place. This week balancing activities, and learning to go through, over, and under, a variety of gym equipment has taken place and the children have used the Astroturf courts to play with unihoc sticks and soft balls.
We have had lots of new children visiting us this week who will be joining in April and your children have been very kind in welcoming them and helping them to settle in.
During the week commencing 19 March the nursery children will be learning about Easter, the colour orange, the number 10 and the letter f. Any small toys incorporating these would be ideal as their “Show and Tell” item this week. Transition children will continue learning about Easter and the letters x,z.
Please accept my many thanks for buying raffle tickets for our school’s “charity week”. The Nursery Department, who are raising money for “Reuben’s Fight”, will continue this during the coming week and plan to draw the lucky ticket for the basket of children’s goodies during our EYFS assembly on Friday 23 March.
- We hope everyone has enormous fun at the Easter egg hunt at Junior Boys on Saturday 24 March and look forward to seeing you there. If you haven’t got your tickets please do send in the form that you were given with your payment as soon as possible.
