This week in Nursery
Friday 10th November | 6 comments
The children were excited to share their experiences of bonfire night with us. Not many of the children knew why we celebrated bonfire night so we showed them a short story to explain who Guy Fawkes and what he tried to do.
We have been busy learning to count forwards to 20 and back from 5/10 to 0. Lots of number songs have been sung and we have practised counting 3 objects and marking the number 3.
In phonics we have been on a sound hunt, we had to hear 5, shhhh what can you hear? We heard clocks ticking, elephants, stomping, rabbits jumping, monkeys, wolves and so much more!
Over the last 2 weeks the children have had the opportunity to buy a poppy band, reflector badge or ruler. We asked the children if they knew why so many people we wearing a flower. They managed to tell us it was called a poppy and it was red. We watched a lovely short story about a rabbit and how he felt before, during and after the War.

Terrific Tapestry Tutorials
Thank you to all the parents/carers who made it to one of our Tapestry Tutorials. We hope you found it really useful. Well done to those who have since sent in observations from home, fantastic! For those who didn’t make it we will be sending out 2 booklets to help you use Tapestry effectively: one is for using it on a computer and the other a mobile device such as phone or tablet. We would urge anyone who hasn’t activated their account to please do so. If you need further support, please let us know and we would be happy to show you how it works.
Have a great weekend.
