EYFS - Nursery: Mrs Clarke and Mrs James

"Oh I do like to be beside the seaside, Oh I do like to be beside the sea!!" What an exciting start we have had to summer term 2 - have a look at what we have been up to...

We have been reading Handa's Suprise this week. We really enjoyed retelling the story with these masks and props!

We have also tasted and described some of the different fruits from the story of Handa's Surprise....including avocado and passion fruit! Ask us what our favourite was..

We had great fun joining in with the celebrations of the Queen's 90th Birthday. We have learnt who the Queen is and looked at pictures of her on some coins and on stamps. We also read a book called the Queen's Knickers which spurred us on to design some very unique knickers for the Queen's Special Birthday! This was all rounded off with our very own 'Afternoon Tea' in the sunshine (eating sandwiches made by us!) 

 

 

 

We have had a super start to Summer Term in nursery! We have been super kind and helpful to Mrs James who now teaches us on Monday and Tuesday, and to the new starters that have joined us in nursery this term. Take a look at what we have been up to...

After reading the story Oliver's Vegetables, we have enjoyed making and tasting our very own vegetable soup, creating vegetables out of playdough and exploring a farm like the one in the book

Over the last half term Nursery have been learning all about traditional tales. We had a great time making porridge, playing in the Three Bears cottage, building houses of straw, sticks and blocks and planting Beanstalks.

 

A big thank you to all of the parents who attended our nursery reading morning on Wednesday 27th January. The children had a lovely time sharing all of their favourite stories.

Look who paid Nursery a visit last night!

Still image for this video
The children loved seeing the Reindeer dancing in our Nursery... He was caught on camera last night when he came to check on the Elf!

This week in nursery we have had a very special visitor...

 

An Elf who has been causing mischief in our classroom!

 

He arrives each morning with a special job for us to do and he makes sure we are all being good so that he can report back to Santa in the North Pole.

 

Here are some of the things he has done this week.

 

 

 

Our focus this week is…

AUTUMN

We shall be looking at what changes occur within our environment during the autumn season.

 

Thank you to everyone who has brought in a family photo. There is still time if you would like to contribute to our interactive display.

 

Just a kind reminder:

If you attended our parent consultation day, we would be grateful if you could return the feedback slip as we are always striving to improve our nursery and you are crucial in this process.

Celebrations…

We have been looking at different celebrations. We have enjoyed hearing about everybody’s bonfire night celebrations.

This week we are exploring Diwali.

We shall be sharing the story of Rama and Sita, creating rangoli patterns, making Diva lamps and even sampling Indian food.

If you would like to explore Diwali further, here is a few useful website...

Welcome back!

What another exciting 7 weeks we have ahead of us.  Our theme for this half term is all about...

‘Families and Celebrations’.

We shall be looking at different celebrations such as Bonfire Night, Diwali and Christmas. If you have any celebrations please share them with us.

 

 

WOW moments

Thank you for all your ‘WOW’ moments, please keep them coming in as we like to celebrate everything that the children achieve. The moments are also used in the children’s learning journey book. Blank copies can be obtained from the cloak room. Don’t forget that spare letters can also be found here.

 

 

Clothing

Now that the cold and wet weather is upon us, please ensure that your child has appropriate clothing and footwear (labelled with their name) as we go outside in all weathers.

You are welcome to bring boots or wellies but please remember that black school shoes must be worn inside.

 

 

We have had a fantastic time today at our ‘dough disco’!

We are trying hard to develop the muscles in our hands.

 

If you would like to read more about why dough disco is crucial in our class, then please read the attached booklet.

 

If you have any questions please speak to one of our team.

 

We have also attached a non cook play dough recipe so that you can have your very own dough disco.

 

Take your fingers to the dough disco!!

 

 

 

Why go to the dough disco? Our simple play dough recipe...ENJOY!!!!

We are beginning our fantastic journey at Darton Primary!

 

Our teacher is called Mrs Nash and our teaching assistant is called Mrs Lawrence.
We also have other teaching assistants to help us too called Mrs Portman and Mrs Standen.

On a Monday afternoon and Friday afternoon, Mrs Hinchliffe will be in our class.

 

Our first theme is 'Marvellous Me' as we want to get to know your marvellous children! We want to help the children to settle into school life through making their learning experiences exciting and engaging.

 

 

To help us celebrate children's achievements outside of school, we shall be sending home 'WOW moment' slips. These slips can be completed and returned to nursery. These 'WOW' moments could be an achievement of any sorts, from sleeping in their own bed to trying new foods.

 

We will update the website regularly with photos and information about our learning and achievements- we may even film our dough disco and digit dance!
