'Change starts with us!'
To launch our anti-bullying week in school, Tuesday 12th November is 'Odd socks day'! Please come to nursery wearing odd socks.
To put this week into context for our youngest children we have been talking to them about how we are all wonderfully different and how we all like different things, but reminding them we all need to work together to keep everyone happy. We have been talking about how we work together as a team in nursery to tidy up and look after our toys. We will continue to explore these ideas through our play this week.
Play games at home which involve turn taking to help your children learn about the importance of sharing.
Today we talked to the children about Remembrance Day. We talked about how the poppy flower helps us to remember brave heroes and helps us remember that it is better for us to get on with each other and be kind and helpful. The children enjoyed exploring some activities to make representations of the poppy.
As it was bonfire night earlier this week, we asked our Forest Schools leader, Mrs Steinman, to take the children into the secret garden for a bonfire experience. She talked to the children about fire and firework safety, helping them to understand how they can stay safe. Afterwards the children toasted vegetarian marshmallows and were able to eat their toasted treat! What fun!
Some fantastic mark making from F. He was so proud to tell me he had drawn his family and a tent for them to go camping in. What a super effort!
What a great first week we have had in Nursery. The children have been busy learning routines and getting to know each other. We have enjoyed exploring a range of activities together and developing our understanding of colour and shape.
