Shape Detectives

Today has been our outdoor learning day. We have all enjoyed becoming shape detectives! We had lots of fun moving through different outdoor areas finding lots of hidden shapes that were all around us! We enjoyed looking for circles, triangles, squares and rectangles. Some of us pointed out other shapes like semi-circles and diamonds!

What shapes can you find at home?

 

                  

Chinese New Year

Today we have enjoyed talking about what we have been up to during our holidays. Katniss brought in something very special to share with us, Chinese Dragon puppets. We all had lots of questions to ask her during show and tell. Katniss told us that at the weekend she celebrated Chinese New Year and went to the street parade in Newcastle. Miss Wilson showed us a video of a New year Parade and we all liked the dancing dragons, unicorns and lions. We all had great fun making our own Chinese lantern to take home. We had to try hard to follow the lines when cutting!

African Day

African Day

African Day got off to a great start with a whole school assembly led by Mrs Innerdale.

Mrs Innerdale told us a little bit about the continent Africa and then showed us where Cameron will be working next year and the types of activities he will do.

 

Lots of fundraising activities took place throughout the day … penalty shootout, cake sale, raffle, guess teddy’s name, guess the number of sweets and nail painting. It was a great success!

After many African themed activities in class, the children then came back together in the hall for a final assembly. The raffle prizes were drawn and winner announced.

Well done and thank you everyone!

Chop stick dance

Miss Sarah and Miss Jean came to nursery and taught us a dance using chopsticks. We held 4 chopsticks in each hand and tapped them together following Miss Jean and Miss Sarah.They left us the chopsticks and we have been performing on our outside stage.

Lent

Nursery have been working very hard trying to be kind, helpful and loving to each other. Under our focal area tree we each have a leaf with our name on and we earn a blossom when we have tried to grow in love to be more like Jesus.
