Phonics Workshops

On Wednesday we invited our parents/ carers to a phonics workshop. First they watched the children play an I-spy game , where they had to listen carefully for the initial sounds of different objects then we moved on to a blending and segmenting activity.The children were amazing and the parents were very impressed. We gave everyone a pack of ideas and games to take home. 

A big thank you to all who came to support their children in this really important area of learning.

Billy bear stays with Ruby

Billy bear went to stay with Ruby this weekend and they were very excited as it was Ruby’s birthday. 

Billy had good fun at Ruby’s birthday party with all her friends from school. He really liked the bouncy castle. 

Billy loved Ruby’s presents and he even tried to sneak into her gift bags, cheeky Billy! 

 Ruby’s baby sister Poppy loves Billy bear. It was a tug of war over who got to play with him the most, Billy didn’t mind though. 

Everyone loved Billy bear staying and they were sad he had to go back to nursery. 

Thanks for looking after Billy! 

Musical instruments

Our focused activity this week in Nursery has been working with musical instruments. The children explored all the different instruments , how to make them loud , quiet,fast and slow . Then we had a go at copying rhythms and making up our own. Some rhythms were a bit tricky and we had to do really good listening . 

Farm animals 

In nursery the children have enjoyed playing with the farm toys . They identified pigs, cows, sheep, hens etc and went on to create their own farm story. On the painting table the f1s have tried to paint a farm animal using the correct shapes and colours. On the creative table some children used cotton balls and other materials to create a picture of a sheep. Later this month some of the f1s will be visiting Whirlow farm to see live farm animals.
