We can’t believe that we have come to the end of the year so quickly. The children have been so resilient and have developed such confidence during their time with us.
We really enjoyed our last day with the children. The weather was perfect and the grounds were stunning. Everyone had fun on the bouncy castle and then settled down for a picnic in the shade of the large tree.
Here are a few of the pictures we took…
All the staff would like to pass on their thanks for the generous presents.
Have a lovely summer and see you in September, from Mrs Fulton and the Nursery team

This week we have really focus on writing independent sentences. The children have amazed us.
In maths we have been focusing on numbers 16,17,18,19 and 20 this week. We are so impressed with the depth of understanding children have in number. They are able to represent numbers in different ways, fill in part whole models and make links to addition and subtractions for different numbers. Well done!!

We were very lucky with the weather on Wednesday afternoon for our Sport’s Day. The children were remarkable in front of a crowd with only a slight hiccup from the boys! All the children took part in a running race, an egg and spoon race and a balancing race. Here are some of the photos we took…
The children really enjoy joining in with the ‘Write Dance’ activities and this week we found two new ones. The children asked me to put them on the blog so they could have a go at home.
Don’t forget that next Wednesday we are having our picnic and it is our last day before the holidays.
Enjoy the lovely weather this weekend from the Nursery team.

Well done RPK! Today is our last day of home learning. See you all tomorrow!
Lets start the day with some exercise.
Today our number of the day is 16! We will be representing number 16 in different ways. Can you count out 16 objects? Please bring 16 objects to the live lesson. Can you fill in a part whole model for 16? Can you represent 16 on the 10 frames? How else could we represent 16? You can download the number of the day sheet here and join us for the live session.
Today we are going to be writing our own sentences. Please download the sheet below. Can you read the words? Pick one word and write it down. Can you think of a sentence that includes your chosen word? What are the features of a sentence? Have a go at writing your own sentences.

We have continued to learn about the number 5 and the children have been putting their knowledge into practise in the areas of provision.
We practised our number bonds to 5.
Some children went into the hall to have a go on the apparatus. They went over, under and through. They climbed and balanced as well as moved on their tummies.
They have been busy doing other things as well…
Have a good weekend and enjoy the football from the Nursery team

This week we have revisited the phonemes/graphemes: ch, ck, ss, ll, ff, zz. We have looked at tricky words: ‘all’ and ‘we’. The children are really impressing us with their independent sentence writing. We will continue to practise this.
This week we have revisited lots of things number related. We have played number bingo, ordered numbers, found the missing number and looked at different ways to make a given number.
This week we continued to discuss ‘healthy eating’ and having a ‘balanced’ diet. The children made and tried some slightly ‘unhealthy’ buns and some ‘healthier’ buns. They both tasted yummy!
Have a lovely weekend.
The Reception team.
