Mrs Wilding's Weekly Words Lent 2
For some children this has been their first week attending a nursery but you would not know it as they have settled so incredibly well. We have been looking at the colour black and number one generally and have made and used the colour in a variety of ways. Group activities such as creating painted display board backgrounds using a variety of tools have been done and the children showed great team spirit. We have had a fire drill, which they took in their stride. It also provided a great example of seeing how well the children accept changes in routine and follow instructions.
Transition children have been discovering winter and have been busy making wintry pictures using “cold” colours and creating snowflakes for a display. They went on a walk around the school grounds looking at the signs of winter and the short snow flurries yesterday got everyone excited.
It was time to renew the 12 hour paediatric first aid training, which is valid for 3 years, for Miss Green, Mrs Freeman and Mrs Irvine and this was completed this week so well done ladies.
The week commencing 21 January the nursery children will be learning about weather, the colour grey, the number 2 and the letter c. Any small toys incorporating any of these would be ideal as their “Show and Tell” item this week. Transition children will be learning about winter foods and the letter n. Please note that Transition children only bring in topic related items for “show and tell” so if you are out walking this weekend and come across conkers then that would be an ideal example of winter foods for squirrels. Your own homemade winter stew might be rather tricky to send in but talk about it with your child and a related Waitrose recipe card would be great.
The Wednesday afternoon cold cookery activity will be making bread rolls.
