Nursery’s Happy Hedgehog Band

Nursery’s Happy Hedgehog Band

Our story in Nursery this week has been ‘The Happy Hedgehog Band’. We listened to the story and copied the beat of the hedgehogs playing their drums.                                                                                                                                           

The boys and girls enjoyed the story so much that they decided to make their own band. We looked around the Nursery garden to find our own natural instruments. The children made drums using sticks and pots, whilst some of the other children made a rustling sound using crispy leaves. We came together to form our own band and played our instruments just like in the story.

We Will Remember

We Will Remember

Yesterday Nursery have remembered the soldiers. We’ve talked about why we need to remember them and made a poppy to help us remember.  We placed some of our poppies on the tree and we’re taking the others home to help us remember.

 

Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day

The Nursery, Reception and Year 1 children gathered today for collective worship and to observe the 2 minute silence to honour all of those who have bravely risked their lives to make our lives better. We listened to the bugle play to mark the beginning and end of our 2 minute silence. All of the children spent time making poppies in their classes to help them remember the importance of this day.

The Reception children processed to the church graveyard to visit the grave of a local soldier. The children left their poppies in honour of him. We ended by saying a quiet prayer together.

Collective Worship- Autumn

This week during collective worship, the boys and girls in Nursery thanked God for the season of Autumn.  We looked at how the colours of nature begin to change, and collected some autumn leaves for our focal area.                                                                                         

The children all joined in singing a song about autumn leaves, before finishing with a prayer thanking God for the seasons.

Collective Worship- Mary

Collective Worship- Mary

In this weeks collective worship, the Nursery boys and girls looked at our statue of Mary and talked about how Mary was Jesus’ Mother. We listened to Mary’s prayer, The Hail Mary.

The boys and girls then watched some of our school’s faith in action team perform a liturgical dance to ‘Hail Mary’. We then joined in with the dance, copying the movements of the boys and girls on the screen. To finish the collective worship, the children all joined in with a prayer, before blowing out our candle and watching the smoke rise to heaven.
