This week in Nursery we have had a dinosaur workshop. The children were very excited and interested in all the information they learnt about dinosaurs. They used descriptive language to describe how the dinosaur egg felt.

We have started to move a few of our outdoor pieces of equipment to our temporary garden. The children were very enthusiastic and had lots of ideas about how to design it.

We noticed the daffodils in our new garden and talked about signs of spring.

Next week we are going to be sharing our resources with Reception to make the Three Little Pig's houses.

I have put a notice up about walking to the wood, please can you sign up if you can come.

Next Friday is Red Nose Day. The children can wear their own clothes for the day which includes a red item or otherwise pay a pound for a red nose.

Have a nice weekend,

Mrs Robinson

We have not been to the woods recently due to not many parents being available to help. I am going to put up a rota for you to sign if you would like our walks to continue. Please sign and come along if you can spare the time. It is a really good way to start the week for the children and they get a lot out of it.
The weeks are flying by and Easter will be upon us soon. After the holidays the nursery will be operating from the hall so in the mornings you need to bring your child to the double doors at the back of the hall. I will be at the doors every morning and our routine will be exactly the same. The children are aware of this so there should be no unexpected surprises for them. We are going to have an inside and outside area so the children will have the same opportunities for learning as they do at present. We are all getting very excited.
On Thursday Jake decided to make an assault course with the tyres which all the children enjoyed playing with in the sunshine. They also had time to pose for a photo.
We are continuing with our name recognition so please try and help your child at home if possible to recognise their own names without a photo. I am going to introduce them to signing their name when they arrive at school to encourage them to engage in mark making.
See you next week,
Mrs Robinson
