Mrs Wilding's Words Summer 4
We have 7 boy and one girl chick (2 did not hatch unfortunately). The children in the nursery classes, Transition and Reception were able to hold them this week and have been amazed by the growth and change in a few days. As I sit in my office I will miss the sound of chirping next week when they will have returned to the farm! The nursery children have planted their sunflower, cress and some vegetable seeds and the raised beds have been prepared ready for planting by the children so the feeling of summer has arrived. Let’s hope we have a successful growing season!
Transition children have had a busy week talking about and deciding their favourite weather and have created weather wheels, bar charts, masks and symbols. The children have increased their understanding of the world around them, extended their language and numeracy, and practised scissor skills. Sunflower seeds have started to grow, and cress has gone home to be enjoyed on salads or in sandwiches.
During the week commencing 15th May the nursery classes will continue learning about planting and growing, the colour purple, the number 4 and the letter d. Any small toys incorporating topic related objects and purple would be ideal as their “Show and Tell” item this week. Transition children will continue learning about weather and the letter j.
Please return your sessions booking sheets for the autumn term as soon as possible and before half term as I will be allocating space for new children after this date.
If sunshine is forecast please apply sun cream to your child before arriving and provide named sunhats. We will reapply sun creams at lunchtime if permission slips have been signed and a named cream provided.
Please send children in wearing shoes suitable for physical activities such as running and climbing. Now that the warmer weather is on the way the temptation is to wear shoes such as Crocs which are not ideal when using some of the nursery outdoors equipment or running and we want to avoid accidents. Many thanks for your cooperation in this matter.
