Mrs Wilding's Weekly Words Lent 7
Spring is on the way so imagine our joy when we discovered frogspawn in the pond. The Transition children have already collected a small amount and have transferred it to a tank in their room with some pond water and weed so we are looking forward to watching and learning about the life cycle of frogs at close hand. They had a lovely walk around the grounds looking for signs of spring, have some blossom to refer to for observational drawing and have created some beautiful pictures of blossom trees and spring flowers.
The nursery classes have been learning about new life (animals) and, referencing the colour of the week, have created some lovely white fluffy lambs, have been playing games to develop an understanding of where animals live, have painted pictures of their favourite animals and have used some good vocabulary when explaining why a certain animal is their favourite. We hope that the Welsh in our community have a lovely St David’s Day today and enjoy the daffodils some of the children have made.
During the week commencing 4 March the nursery children will be learning about “our families”, the colour orange, the number 7 and the letter h. Transition children will be learning about “new life” and the letter p.
- We hope that you enjoyed the emailed observations of your children over the half term and we welcome any comments. Remember that we have an open door and are more than happy to discuss progress.
- The cold cookery activity on Wednesday afternoon will be making stuffed peppers using couscous, courgette, tomato and sweetcorn.
- World Book Day is on Thursday 7 March so if the children would like to come in wearing a simple costume representing their favourite book character that day it would be lovely. This week the nursery classes “Show and tell” item could be their favourite book but please name this in case of repeats.
Over half term our marketing department emailed all nursery parents on my behalf regarding reviews for our listing on the daynurseries.co.uk website, and I would like to thank those of you who have done this and raised our profile (we had no reviews until now). So often I hear wonderful words from you about our nursery via my staff or directly to me and would love to see these published as so many other nurseries using this particular website seem to do and as a result have a higher profile than we do. If you have the time and would like to support us in this way please review us. Thank you, as always, for your wonderful support.
