Week 8

6th March 2020

What a busy week we have had in Nursery with the Eisteddfod on Monday and World Book Day on Thursday.  This week the children have been finding out about 2D shapes, capacity by making milkshakes, the letter sound 'u' and all about personal hygiene.

The children did a fabulous job at singing and signing their Welsh song, Mi Welais Jac y Do, with Reception in front of the rest of the school in our Eisteddfod.  They had welsh cakes for snack and listened to the story about who St David was.

On Tuesday and Wednesday the children were busy making sandwiches and cakes (investigating 2D shapes) for our Tiger Who Came to Tea party (see Twitter for pictures on World Book Day).  We took this opportunity to learn how to wash our hands carefully.  We learnt how germs can be spread easily by coughing and sneezing, as well as by touching things.  We used gel to demonstate this and then practised washing the 'germs' off our hands.  We would be grateful if you could continue to encourage good hygiene/careful hand washing at home.

On Thursday the children looked amazing in their World Book Day costumes.  The children listened to lots of stories, made bookmarks and thoroughly enjoyed taking part in our Tiger Who Came to Tea party.  One of the children said "it's the best tea party ever."  Some children enjoyed exchanging one of their own books in our book exchange.  We will contnue the book exchange for the next week or two.  Thank you for supporting these fun filled activity days.

Friday we went to Forest School on a shape hunt.  The children choose a shape with their partner to hold in their hand to help them find shapes in the outdoor environment.  There were so many! Next the children had to search around Forest School for our shape houses. (See Twitter).   We then tried to put them in house number order!  Number four was missing.  It was such a lovely spring day we even sat and had snack outside.  Why not look for shapes with your child next time you are out and about.  We found circles, triangles, squares and even some rectangles.

There will be no Forest School next Friday as we will be taking part in Sport Relief.  Please send your child to Nursery in their PE kit or clothes with  a sporty theme.  We will hopefully be taking part in activities outside, so please send your child in dressed accordingly!

Letters were sent out this week about our trip to Magor Marsh.  The trip will be on Tuesday 31st March.  Nursery will be closed on this session and each child must be accompanied by their grown-up.  Please find letter attached should you have mislaid your copy.

Thank your for your continued support
