Spring Term 2015

Our topic this term is:

'Where in the World?'



This topic has a focus on Knowledge and Understanding of the World. We will firstly focus on our home country of Wales. We will be looking at famous Welsh traditions during our ‘Welsh Culture Week’. Following this we will read the story of Barnaby Bear to explore a different country. We will look at the similarities and differences of this country to compare it to Wales.
During this project, children will develop an understanding and appreciation for other cultures as well as a sense of pride for their own.

Monday 13th April - Friday 17th April

Welcome back to all our Nursery children! We hope you had a lovely Easter break. The children have been making the most of the sunny weather this week exploring outside with counting and balancing games. The Nursery also had the fantastic opportunity of planting potatoes with Ms Campbell-Jones which they will eventually be able to harvest and eat for snack!

Monday 23rd March - Friday 27th March

The Nursrey class have had a busy week celebrating Easter. They have been looking at different shapes, patterns and colours using Easter eggs to match and sort them. They have been using their creative skills to make Easter cards and baskets. They have also been learning the importance of helping one another through reading the story of 'The Little Yellow Chicken'. On Friday they had a very special visit from the Easter bunny who brought them chocolate eggs to take home in their Easter baskets!

Monday 16th March - Friday 20th March

The children have had a very busy week. They have enjoyed using different media such as shaving foam and magnetic letters to begin writing and copying their name. They have begun making craft ready for Easter next week and have explored a variety of stories about chicks and rabbits. The Nursery have also been working hard in their Rubicon Dance sessions and are now beginning to create short sequences together!

Monday 9th March - Friday 13th March

In preparation for Mothering Sunday, the children have been busy sharing stories of why their mummies are so important to them and telling us all about the wonderful things they do to help them. We have also celebrated Comic Relief by making our faces funny for money! Thank you so much to all who donated for this brilliant charity event.

Monday 2nd March - Friday 6th March

This week the children have enjoyed continuing with some of the Welsh themed activities whilst the rest of the school had their St David's Day concert. The children each baked a Welsh cake by looking at picture clues and following the instructions. They have enjoyed learning the Welsh song '1, 2, 3 banana' and they tried counting all the way to 10 in Welsh!

Monday 23rd February - Friday 27th February

'Welsh Culture Week'

This week we have held a 'Welsh Culture Week' celebrating all things Welsh! The children have been busy painting daffodils, making Welsh cakes from playdough and have made Welsh cawl which they ate for their snack. The children have had lots of fun and have learnt lots about their home country of Wales!
