Nursery

Welcome to our Nursery class page

Week beginning 12th July

The last week in Nursery will be spent consolidating the children’s knowledge before they break up for the summer. The children will be baking cakes at the beginning of the week for their Wedding Celebration on Tuesday. 

Don’t forget on Tuesday the children can come dressed up as they would for a Wedding Celebration. They will role play a wedding together and discussing and then celebrating with a part in the afternoon. We thank you if you have donated the £1 towards the party food and cake. The children will have a wonderful day. 

 

The children will have their library books, reading books and learning purses collected this week for the summer and in preparation for Reception class. Please ensure you have all of these in your children’s book bags so we are able to do this. There are lots of ways you can continue learning over the summer with your children. Using the library, online games etc. I will also put some hints and tips on the web page next week. 

Thank you

Today we will take a closer look at the Dragon dance during the Parade.

Dragons are of course legendary animals, but they are important to Chinese people who think of dragons as helpful, friendly creatures. They are linked to good luck, long life and wisdom. They are nothing like the fierce, fire-breathing Western dragons that carry off princesses and eat people. Chinese Dragons are associated with storm clouds and life-giving rain. They have special powers so they can fly in the air, swim in the sea and walk on land.

We are looking at the Chinese Celebration “Chinese New Year” if you did not watch the videos from yesterday then please look at these before you move onto today’s.

It may also be a good idea to recap over the videos of yesterday with the children to see what they can remember about the festival.

Below I have added The Chinese New Year Story. This explains to the children why they name different years after animals.

Can you help your children to find out what animal the year is for 2021?

Tuesday 2.2.21

As I said in my letter this week it is Mental health awareness week. So today we are spending some time looking at a special story and beginning to talk about our feelings.

We are using this story as a basis for our activities all day and there will be other mindfulness activities that you can complete with your child throughout the day. Mental health is important as it can affect us all, especially children, so it is important for them to know how to deal and talk about their feelings.

Morning introduction

Why not start the morning calmly preparing the mind and body using this cosmic yoga session

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMY2pMsLiJw

Please click below for Mrs Hackney’s morning introduction

 

https://youtu.be/_C3eFG4QtlE

Ruby’s worry story

Please take the time to listen to this child with your story and discuss throughout, the day’s activities will be based around this book

https://youtu.be/RKqAJkTJzGE

Below is a list of mindfulness activities for you to complete with your child for today relating to the story:

  1. Create your own worry box or monster- perhaps you can give it a name? Discuss with your child that this could be where they put their worries when ever they have them so that they can shrink or disappear below is a photo examplet-l-54049-the-making-of-milton-worry-monster-activity-sheet-english

  2. Learn about different emotions, can you draw different facial expressions for feelings of happiness, sadness, anger, surprise? You could send me photos of your faces as well as drawing them and using different colours to represent the emotion. Please talk about these different feelings with your child, can they give you examples of when they may feel this way?

  3. Create a mind map of pictures of things that make you feel happy and the things you love to do

  4. Draw a picture of your happy place and tell me why it makes you feel happy

  5. Mindfulness time- take some time today to complete a colouring, listen to some calming music. Can you think of any other mindfulness activities to do?

 

Children and parents we would love to make a whole school display of some of the mindfulness work you have done at home during lock down so please send over your pictures so we can use them in school or bring them in when you come and collect your next pack

 

Thank you and enjoy your day

“One Rainy Day”

https://youtu.be/Ds6lsCVWZ3w

Reading is a essential way of supporting communication, language and building vocabulary and we want to ensure that the children hear as many stories a day as possible. Use this book to discuss with the children the weather and what is happening outside and why.

Things to consider when reading with your child:

Do they understand the story?

Can they name the characters in the story/animals?

Can they remember what happened at the beginning of the story/the end? Can they predict what they think may happen?
