Heads Words Summer Term Week 9
A huge thank you goes to Mr Burfitt, Harry’s father, for bringing his huge tractor to the Nursery this week. The children had enormous fun exploring it, pretending to drive it and tooting the horn, and judging the size of the wheels against their own height. They have painted pictures of tractors and farm animals, talked about the food products animals give us and have created some lovely Father’s Day messages for you on Sunday.
We also wish to thank the kitchen staff who, as part of “Healthy Eating Week”, have prepared a variety of different fruits and vegetables for the Nursery classes to eat at snack time as a change from the usual apples and grapes. The children have really enjoyed the variety and the kitchen are going to continue this as a trial for the next fortnight.
The nursery classes have been practising for Sports Day and are getting faster week by week and, oh joy, they seem to be staying within the track rather than running across the field!!
Transition children have had a very busy week looking at lifecycles and have cut out and sequenced pictures of a butterfly lifecycle and have rearranged models of ladybirds, caterpillars, ants, bees and frogs as well as making super cards for their fathers.
During the week commencing 20th June the nursery children will continue learning about minibeasts, the colour black, the number 9 and the letter a. Any small toys incorporating our topic or black would be ideal as their “Show and Tell” item this week. Transition children will be learning about life cycles and the letter d.
Friday 1st July will be the Nursery Department Sports Day, starting at 9.15 and ending approximately an hour later. We look forward to seeing you at the track side on the main school sports field, cheering the children on. We would like all children to take part even if Friday is not a regular session and for the children to wear suitable footwear and shorts. Please note that if we are rained off we are unable to reschedule as there is no space in the school’s busy timetable.
