Mrs Wilding's Words Summer 7
The growing season has started well and the nursery classes have been busy planting out broad bean, pumpkin, carrot, lettuce and courgette plants so hopefully we will have a good crop later in the year. The caterpillars arrived this week so we are really looking forward to their development and being able to release painted lady butterflies into the environment. To support the topic the children have been learning about symmetry when creating butterfly models and pictures, counting bottle tops when making a “Hungry Caterpillar" and learning about the life cycle.
Transition children have been busy exploring the different types of habitat that various mini-beasts live in, have played with small world mini-beasts and have created some lovely pictures. As always their vocabulary has been expanded and their learning has taken another leap.
During the week commencing 12th June the nursery children will be learning about “down on the farm”, the colour grey, the number 7 and the letter h. Any small toys incorporating farm animals (horses, hens, animal homes etc), or grey would be ideal as their “Show and Tell” item this week. Transition children will continue learning about mini beasts and the letter o.
Please remember that we operate an “Open Door” policy. This means that any time you wish to have a discussion about your child’s progress please ask the class leader who will agree a mutually convenient time for this.
The PTA Summer Fete will be held on Saturday 24th June, 12.00-16.00, at Ridgeway, our Junior Boys site. This year the theme of our fete is “Better All Together”. We hope that you will all come and have great fun there with your children.
Friday 7th 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 beginning to practise so please send your children in wearing footwear suitable for running. Parents are invited to come and cheer on the children.
