Mrs WIlding's Words Autumn Term Week 3
The nursery children have used face masks to act out the story of the “Little Red Hen”, explored wheat and flour and ate bread, used play dough to create loaves for their role play and have been learning the related song. They discovered how to make the colour brown and have created some lovely paintings all related to the “f” sound. Honeycomb children went for a walk around the school, managing the staircases really well and discovering the offices and dining room.
Transition children have been busy this week acting out “The Three Little Pigs” story with a variety of resources, discussing the different versions of the story and the various endings. They have made masks, painted pictures of pigs and investigated strengths of different building materials.
The week commencing 26th September the 3 nursery classes will be talking about “Goldilocks and the 3 Bears” and doing a range of related crafts. The number for the week is 3, the colour is gold and the letter is g. Any gold items will be perfect for their “show and tell” activities. Transition children will be talking about “The Little Red Hen” and the letter m.
A very big thank you goes to everyone who joined in our “Jeans for Genes” day on Friday. We raised £35.00 for this very worthy cause.
Friday is Harvest Festival in the Nursery Department and we would be delighted if you were able to send non-perishable food items and products such as shampoo, soap, deodorants etc. which the local branch of the Salvation Army will collect. We will be collecting from Monday and a box in Transition and one in the nursery hall will be available for your kind donations.
With the weather turning wetter and colder please provide named wellington boots, which can be left in the classrooms rather than having to bring each day, and send your child in wearing warm, waterproof outer clothing. The children love splashing and playing outside in the rain but obviously need appropriate clothing. We encourage the development of independent skills so please persuade your children to dress themselves as much as possible. If a jumper ends up back to front do not worry but celebrate the fact that he or she has managed to put it on!
