Nursery - Miss Broderick

Week Beginning 11th Sep

This week the children have had lots of fun in the outdoor area.  We dressed up as lots of things from Robin Hood to a space man, we have been learning how to use Numicon to count and add, the children were cutting shapes with Mrs Dickinson and we built towers with bricks and had a race to see who could build the tallest.  It was safe to say the children were far quicker than Miss Broderick at putting the bricks together.  We have danced along to Frozen at the request of the girls and we have been reading lots of stories.  A list of books we have been reading can be found below.

 

Books read this week:

Shark in The Park

The Blue Chamelion

Woof

Dear Zoo

Wiffy Wilson goes to school

So far the class have voted Shark in the Park as their favourite.  They like to make the telescopes. 

 

Next week we will be having a big push on writing, mark making and pencil control.  If you get chance at home try and use pens and colouring pencils as much as possible.  Bring in any work you do to show to the class. 

 

Here is what Nursery did in Week 2

Week Beginning 5th September 17:

 

Firstly I would like to welcome all of the new families to Waverley Nursery.  We have already had a super week getting to make new friends, learn new routines, getting to know new members of staff and playing with lots of new toys.

Already I have seen children write their names, draw pictures of their family, count to 20, sort colours, match animals and paint lovely pictures for our new art wall.

I can't wait to see where this year will take us and I look forward to getting to know you all more.

 

Please take a look at our journey so far:

Week Beginning 27th March:

 

I would just first like to start by saying a huge Thank You for you co-operation yesterday with the Nursery changes. We appreciate  your understanding and patience. 

We are now back and ready to celebrate Easter.  We will have lots of fun activities for all to take part in including Easter egg hunts, Easter basket making, designing eggs, marble painting eggs, masks, Easter book marks, board games to help the Easter Bunny and find the Easter Bunny Hunt.  Easter is a fun time for the children with games and chocolate but we also want the children to understand the real meaning behind Easter so we will also be looking at the cross, traditions and the bible.

Keep posted for photographs.

 

 

Week Beginning 20th March:

This week brings changes to our Nursery classroom.  We have now started our extra days so you will see lots of new faces in our classes.  Yesterday was a huge success and the children rallied around each other to make new friends feel welcome.  

We are coming to the end of our zoo topic this week and on Friday we will celebrate red nose day.  Although we are not dressing up children can bring in a nose to wear and the classroom will be filled with red nose day activities in the afternoon.

Due to the larger numbers in our class please bare in mind that it may take a little longer at the end of the day to see the children out.  I will of course do my best to run as smoothly as possible but it may take a few days to get timings right.

 

Week Beginning 12th March:

We have also had a super learning day this week based around Maths.  We have been adding, ordering numbers to 20, counting animals into their cages, seeing which zoo animal is the lightest and heaviest, making 2 potions have the same number of frogs in to keep the Good and Bad Witch happy.  We have been filling jars with water beads and counting the scoops it takes, we made numbers with pretend hands to 5 bending down fingers and we had to play 1-10 leapfrog along the beanbag number line.

This week we have been learning all about Chinese New Year.  This year is the year of the rooster.  So far in class we have made dragon masks, dragon puppets, played a board game 'the animals race' to develop our understanding of positions 1st, 2nd, 3rd.  We have also had giant dragons outside, made Chinese stir fry, tasted prawn crackers, learnt how to write Chinese symbols and sorted items according to colours red and gold.  We have even discovered facts about Chinese New Year from the help of a little boy called Ian.  He was in our Video and told us how his family celebrate Chinese New Year in Manchester.

Did you know they hide coins inside dumplings for good luck.

Hope you are all reading lots of books for your Reading Records.  Why not try and read a topical book on Chinese New Year.

Week Beginning 23rd January

Next week we will be celebrating Book Week in school.  As we are trying to become super readers in Nursery I will be sending home a reading Journal for the week.  If you can try and read at least a book a night with your child that week and fill in your journal.  Ask them to colour in the stars to give it a rating, state the title of the book, write down who their favourite character was and why.  This is to be returned to school the following week.  There will be book prizes for the most read children.  Have fun reading.

Books we love to read in class:

The Gruffalo

Shark in the park

Going on a bear hunt

Bear sleeps on

Room on the broom

Dave the cat

Why not read one of these.

We would like to say a huge Thank You to Nate who was very generous and brought in his giant build an igloo to share with his friends.  The children had so much fun building it, colouring it in and then getting snuggled up inside.

Thank you Nate and family for being so thoughtful and kind to our class.

Week Beginning 23rd January

This week has been jam packed with Maths fun and more ice exploration.  We have been counting beyond 10, having bean bag throwing competitions, helped people escape from the ice with tools and salt water.  We have been timing how long it takes for ice to melt and what happens when you add sugar to ice.

Me and the staff have been extremely impressed with all of the homework this Topic and we have had some amazing igloos brought in for our display.

Please don't forget we will be displaying them in and around school so have them in by Friday this week. Take a look at what the children in class 1 have made so far.  They are so proud of them.

Week Beginning 16th January

 

The children have had so much fun learning facts about our new topic Ice and Snow.  We were even lucky enough that we had real snow on Friday.  The children made snowmen outside, collected it in wheel barrows, went sledging and we even carried out a snow experiment to see what would happen if we added colours to the white snow as it melted.

 

The children told me what they already knew about Polar Animals, here's what they said during snack:

"Penguins are white and black, they have no feathers and they eat fish"

"Polar bears are covered in white stuff to keep them warm"

"Reindeers live in the snowy woods"

"Whales are big and eat baby seals"

Keep posted at the end of the Topic to see how the childrens knowledge has progressed and evolved throughout the topic.

We have one more week left on this topic before we learn all about Chinese New Year.  I look forward to seeing everyone's igloos they have been making at home to finish our topic off.

This half term is going to be jam packed with fun, experiments, learning new skills and new topics.  The first topic we will be learning about is:

Ice and snow

In this topic we will look at how to grow snowflakes in the classroom, symmetry, melting, freezing, facts about animals that live in Antarctic, floating and sinking, Eskimos and their lifestyles, building igloos and much more.  I will be setting a project for all children to complete at home during week 2 so please keep posted to find out what this will entail.  Letters will be sent home in regards to this with all key elements you will need to follow to complete the project.  I do ask however that it is completed by children as much as possible please.  I know how tempting it is to help them but I want to see their work no matter what the outcome. 

 

I look forward to getting started and want to Welcome new children and families to our classroom.  I'm sure you will all help us to make them feel welcome for a great start to 2017.

We all took part in the coin trail around school where the children placed 2p and 1p coins in a line to see how far we could travel around the school grounds.  We got all the way down the corridor, back and all around the school gym.  We also had Mrs McGettricks year 5/6 class come and read the Maths stories and Rhymes they made to our class on Friday. We had bring a board game to school day and I must admit there were a few games the children brought from home that I have been and purchased for our class to play in the near future.   

To top the week off we had a Cake Sale.  I would like to thank all parents that attended and contributed to this.  We were able to raise £100 with your help so thank you for stopping, chatting, having tea and coffee but most of all thank you for the cake donations and purchases.

At home ask the children to show you how they can draw circles and show your child how to turn circles into people and animals.

"it feels soft and slippery"      "it smells so nice, just like daddy"     "Wow look I have made my mummy"                  

"I can swirl my hands around and around"

Here is some of what we have been doing at Forest School

We have had our first groups attending Forest School with Mr Roberts over the past 3 weeks and what fun we have had.  We went on a Nature walk around the nearby woods, made mud make-up to wear on our faces as camouflage, we made clay Gruffalo's, planted sunflower seeds which are currently growing in our classroom and this week we will be toasting marshmallows on the fire and painting pictures using berries, flowers, pine paint brushes and mud.

We will be getting very creative in the outdoors with a focus on the 3 Little Pigs and the Little Red hen.  Please await some forest school pictures.
 
The Classroom
The children have been making real preogress in all areas of learning over the Spring Term but we have seen a significant improvement in Literacy, writing especially in Nursery, so please keep up the good work at home. If you do any writing at home that you are proud of then please bring it in to share with your teachers and friends.
We will be starting Phonics sessions from our first day back so please bring in the homework books on a Monday or Wednesday Afternoon to share the sound of the week.
We are also going to start entering the classroom on our own from May half Term holidays so if you want to start to prepare your child for leaving you outside and them hanging up their own coats then please feel free to try this at any time. We are trying to be independent ready for Reception. We look forward to seeing you all after the holidays.
 
Monday 13th March
We have been learning all about Easter.  We made Easter baskets and chocolate nests in case the Easter Bunny came to leave us some treats for working hard this week on our writing and maths.
We went on a number Egg hunt outside, painted eggs, played number egg bingo, rabbit and lamb masks, little chick bracelets and Easter cards to send to our Family.  I hope you all have a lovely Easter holidays and I hope the Easter Bunny visits you all as he has already been to Waverley!

Today Nursery had the fantastic treat of having Technology Tom in our class today.  he helped us build vehicles that moved, we learnt new and exciting vocabulary and we developed skills needed to discuss moving vehicles.  The children made cars that moved in the wind by adding sails, we placed string on them to pull them, we added people and seats to the vehicles, and we even tested who could travel the furthest on ramps and what would happen to our vehicles if we changed the shape of the wheels.  Please take a look at our super learning.

Today the children made Halloween pumpkins by scooping out the centre of the pumpkins and carving a face in them.  before we went to dinner we turned out all of the lights in Nursery so we could see how he looked when he was lit up.

This Morning the children looked at how best to use shapes to make pictures of houses.  They worked alongside Mrs Shipley naming shapes and colours.  they used squares for the base, triangles for the roof and rectangles for the door.  Each house looked different and it started conversations about their own houses and colour of their doors.

We made very bright and colourful Elmer the Elephants for our classroom.  The children looked and discussed the different colours they needed and how best to lay them out to make a patch work effect.  Take a look at how we made them.

Today the children had great fun writing in shaving foam.  We made pictures of ourselves, we used paint brushes and fingers to draw shapes and lines and we even tried to write the first letters in our names.  we got very messy indeed but had great fun.

Nursery made toast this morning.  The children discussed how we make toast and then they each had to spread their own butter and toppings onto their toast when it was cooked and cooled.  The children sat talking with Mrs Shipley discussing their favourite breakfast foods, their family, their homes and who would pick them up from school today.  We all got very buttery.
