Colourtastic fun in Nursery this week

December 1, 2014 at 4:32 pm

Gosh this term is going fast. We are welcoming December in Nursery by looking at different colours. The children are making colourful bauble decorations, making rainbow toast, doing a colour experiment with milk and making homemade coloured rice.

Don’t forget we are going on our first Nursery trip on Wednesday to Fingertips Art Studio. The children are getting very excited. All the volunteers should have had guidance on transport arrangements. If you have any questions, then please get in touch – [email protected]

Have a great week.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas …….

Literacy

In our Literacy classroom this week we are learning about the Nativity story. We are learning why Christians celebrate Christmas and thinking about why we share presents. We will be ‘hot seating’ different characters from the story and sequencing the story using pictures. We will also be thinking about the meaning of Christmas and taking part in circle time activities with our friends. We are continuing to use a phonics skills to sound out and spell words and beginning to write Christmas cards to someone special.

Mathematics

In our Maths classroom this week we are focusing on Number. We will be introducing the language ‘all together’ and thinking about how we find the total of 2 groups using different objects. The children will also be forming numbers as well as ordering numbers to 20 and finding the missing number in a set. We will be continuing to focus on our own maths targets and give new ones if necessary.

We have all been practising hard for our Christmas concert. We hope you are all excited to see it! If your child is a sheep in the play then they need to bring in a pair of black, white or cream tights to stay in their tray in the classrooms.

Don’t forget RC are going to Abbey House Museum this Friday. Please send your child into school in their school uniform. They are all very excited!!

Have a great week.
