The children in Nursery have been exploring the local area on an autumn walk. They saw lots of beautiful leaves.

 

Reading Buddies

11/11/19

This term we are continuing our Reading Buddies Scheme. This

matches up years five children with children from reception, they meet regularly at lunch times to read together.

This week they met up and had a cake, drink and chat to get to know each other. 

Pizza Making

14/10/19

In Nursery the children have been making pizza using the playdough. 

Building on the children interest, Miss Caygill decided to make real pizzas! They firstly came together and discussed what they needed to make a pizza, then Miss Caygill found a recipe. 

Firstly, we all washed our hands. Next we mixed the dry ingredients. 

            

Then we mixed together our wet ingredients and finally we combined the two together to make a dough.

Once we made our dough we had to let it rest. When we came back to the check it, it had grown! This was because of the yeast. 

Finally we got to make the pizzas! We rolled out our dough and put our toppings on. Finally, Miss Caygill put it in the oven! 

 

They were very yummy! 

Art Week

04/09/2019 – 06/09/2019

EYFS (Nursery) have been looking at Jackson Pollock. They used blue, yellow and

red paint to splatter, they all had lots of fun! 

 

Useful Information

Nursery:

The children start school at 8.40, coming in to provision and then eventually name writing. Miss Caygill and Mrs Chadwick are available to answer any questions and deal with any concerns as well as hear your exciting news! We get the children ready to leave for 3.05pm to allow parents with older children to have time to collect them from the other doors after collecting Nursery children.

For children staying for dinners in Nursery, they are asked to bring a packed lunch. They will go for lunch with a midday supervisor at 11:40 and return for the afternoon session at 12:10.

We also love singing and are aiming to hold sessions on a Friday in both the morning and the afternoon at the end of each session. The more the merrier! We welcome families to join in the fun, and find that it is well loved by brothers, sisters, cousins and friends who haven’t started at Nursery yet!

Nursery children have a home-school library system, where they are able to choose a book to be shared at home. These books will be changed once a week on a Wednesday.

We always try to use the children’s interests, so although we have our plan ready for the term, it can change as the children develop. All of the topics are planned through the careful progression of the EYFS.

For any other information on our practice and policies, just ask or arrange a time to come and see us. We welcome your involvement, and appreciate any support with reading, craft, cooking and baking, walks, visitors – anything!

Reception:

The children start school at 8.40, coming in to different activities such as name writing and dough disco on the carpet with Mrs Chadwick. Miss Caygill and Mrs Chadwick are available to answer any questions and deal with any concerns as well as hear your exciting news! We get the children ready to leave for 3.05pm to allow parents with older children to have time to collect them from the other doors after collecting Nursery or Reception children.

For children on school dinners in Reception, the menu is in the Reception entrance to help your child to choose what they would like. We also try to send home menus regularly and they are on the school dinners website.

Reception children have their books changed three times a week, more if possible. Reception also have homework weekly, with practical activities to do together to keep everyone involved in what is happening at school and at home.

We always try to use the children’s interests, so although we have our plan ready for the term, it can change dramatically as the children develop, but all of the topics are planned through the careful progression of the EYFS.
