Head's Words Summer Term Week 10
The weather has not been good this week for going out with clipboards and hunting for mini beasts in the garden which we had planned to help the nursery children with their observation skills and number work but we will try to do this next week. Instead they went on an ant march and they have made 3D models with egg cartons and a variety of recycled materials, and clay mini beasts.
Transition children have continued learning about lifecycles with particular reference to ladybirds this week. They managed to find ladybird lava and pupa on the bushes in the garden and have cut out and stuck pictures in the correct life cycle sequence. Great fun was had with the chocolate gloop which fortunately nobody ate though their hands smelt delicious!
During the week commencing 27th June the nursery children will continue learning about mini beasts, the colour red, the number 10 and the letter b. Any small toys incorporating a mini beast or red would be ideal as their “Show and Tell” item this week. Transition children will be learning about minibeasts and the letter g.
Saturday 25th June is the Claires Court Fete held on the Junior Boys site at Ridgeway. Please turn up and support the event as the PTA very generously support our Department by funding events such our Christmas entertainment, all the amazing outdoors equipment we received this term and Sports Day ribbons. It is an afternoon full of fun for all and helps to raise funds for those extra special things for the children. Thank you for sending in the cups full of sweets for the event.
Friday 1st July will be the Nursery Department Sports Day, starting at 9.15 and ending approximately an hour later. We would like all children to take part even if Friday is not a regular session. We are now practising so please send your children in wearing footwear suitable for running. Parents are invited to watch and take part so get your training programme started this weekend!!
If you have any clothing, particularly shorts, joggers or leggings which your child no longer wears we would be very grateful for them. We started the year with a decent amount of spare items but they seem to have gone astray and when a child needs changing we are struggling to find something to dress them in. Of course it helps if each child has a spare set of clothing on their peg which is replenished if used.
