The children are now familiar with the Nursery environment and we are pleased to see they are beginning to explore new areas in the classroom. The children have enjoyed visiting the art area and have had the opportunity to explore painting with a variety of different autumn objects such as conker rolling, painting with sticks…….

………used autumn coloured paint………

……..some have even enjoying exploring painting with their fingers!

We have spent time looking at natural objects such as pine cones, conkers, leaves and twigs. We have used magnifying glasses to look closely at the objects, talked about the texture of different items and had a good chance to count conkers!

Thank you to all the parents who have sent in bulbs for show and tell this week. Next week we will be planting them in the Nursery garden and we look forward to watching them grow in spring. In small groups we have talked about the bulbs; looking closely at the different sizes of the bulbs, looking at their roots and have even spent time counting them!

Next week we will be explore the theme of ‘Our senses’. Please could you remember to return your ‘My senses on the way to school sheets’. We will be sharing these in the small groups this week.

We have just finished the RE topic ‘Myself’ and we are moving onto our new topic of  ‘Baptism’. We will be looking at how we are all part of God’s special family. Please remember to send in your child’s baptism photograph so that we can look at them during the RE lesson.  (Just a reminder: they will be stuck into the Learning Journals so please don’t send in an original photo.)

Here are some more photos to show you the fun we've had....

Enjoy the rest of your weekend
