Nursery Showstopper W/B 30.04.19

Miss Freebairn has been so impressed with Theo since returning to school after Easter. In Theo’s phonics group, the children have begun to read and write CVC words using their phonics skills. Theo was set a challenge and faced it with buckets of determination! He chose 8 pictures and used his sounds to work out and spell the word underneath. Take a look:

Once again, there are a number of Showstopping children this week in Nursery. In the Beginning of Week group, some of our girls have been working hard at creating their very own story maps. Orla, Arabella and Hannah have used the story map templates to create their own versions of our Dear Sea Life story. They were able to use their story maps to verbally tell the story to an adult. Incredible work, girls!

At the end of the week, some of our boys have been shape hunting! Brody, Luka, William and Max managed to find 2D shapes in our Nursery garden – including circles, triangles, rectangles and squares! Keep up the enthusiasm, boys!

We have a few showstoppers in Nursery this week. To begin with, we have the ENTIRE Beginning of Week group of children for their contribution to our story “Dear Sea Life” this week. This half-term we have been learning the story ‘Dear Zoo’ and the children have been able to use our story map to tell it independently. We knew it so well that we then innovated the story, changing certain parts to make our own! All of the children helped come up with different animals who live in the sea, along with some fantastic describing words like “splashy” and “floaty”. Click the link bellow to see our “Dear Sea Life” story map below:

Also deserving of a showstopper this week is Lilah Clarke. She used her knowledge of Dear Zoo to create her very own story map using the template that Miss Freebairn had made. She could follow the story map to tell the story out loud. See it here:

 

A third showstopper goes to Scarlett Shingler for some brilliant number work AND writing this week. She was able to represent the numbers 1-6 using different marks and drawings on paper. On the back, she wrote her full name – first, middle AND last names (with only a teeny tiny bit of help to write her surname):

Nursery Showstopper 17th March

We have been learning all about dinosaurs this half term in the Nursery. It would seem that Alex, Arthur and Brody know everything there is to know about dinosaurs and have taught me lots! Alongside learning about ‘sorting’ in maths, the boys were able to sort lots of toy dinosaurs into two different groups: dinosaurs who walk on two legs, and dinosaurs who walk on four legs! Well done boys!

This week, Nursery and Reception have been introduced to their new friends, Pip and Pop (see below!) Pip lives in Nursery and Pop lives in Reception. We have been asking the children to draw pictures and write letters to Pip and Pop so that we can send them between classes. Lilah was fascinated by the whole thing and spent most of Tuesday afternoon drawing pictures and even copied their names to write ‘pip’ and ‘pop’. I am so impressed with her skills! Well done Lilah.

Nursery Showstopper 10th February

This week we have been learning about the differences between how we keep warm and how animals and people who live in polar regions keep warm. We found out all about igloos and produced our own igloo collage crafts using white paper squares and lots of glue.

Isla produced this incredibly neat igloo which she spent a very long time perfecting. Her concentration levels and attention to detail were seriously impressive! Well done Isla, keep it up!

Nursery Showstopper 3rd February

Rahil has only been at the Nursery for four weeks – but he has already shown us what a hard worker he is! Rahil enjoyed his weekly library book so much that he produced 6 pages of the most incredible writing and colourful drawings. He had a go at copying some extremely difficult words like ‘spider’, ‘party’ and ‘rhinoceros’.

Well done Rahil!
