Bake sale for CAFOD
The Early Years unit decided to make cakes and decorate them for the bake sale we had the following day. We had edible donations from staff and parents and we raffled off a cake made by Mrs Carden. We raised over £100, this money will go to CAFOD.
CHRISTMAS OPEN MORNING
We invited the parents to come in and create some festive favours, there was a variety of different tasks that went on during our open morning. We created paper decoration chains, lollipop stick Christmas trees, candy cane reindeer, clay tree ornaments and other creative creations.
THE NATIVITY SONGS
We have recorded the children singing the songs which they will be performing in the Nativity. They are still practicing but we thought you would like a sneak peek at how the Nursery are getting along.
It’s the first Christmas night in Bethlehem and a group of census-takers are carrying out Caesar’s urgent decree that everyone in his empire should be counted. They count the people of Bethlehem, the wise men and their camels and nearly fall asleep counting sheep with the shepherds. Then, a countless host of angels appear with the good news of Jesus’ birth, which sends the shepherds running right to the stable to meet Mary and Joseph and one special baby. There they realise that Jesus being born shows how much God cares and how Christmas counts for everyone.
P.S parents if you wish to help us, you can practice with your child at home.
During this half term we have been studying magical worlds. We have had created areas for the children to play and learn in. We have a frozen Elsa castle which has stones and sparkles. We also have an area based on the Julia Donaldson book Room on the Broom, there are witch hats and cauldrons to make positions as well as story books.
During bonfire night we make our own sparklers however they didn't glow they tasted delicious and we used popping candy so they would crackle.
MULTI FAITH WEEK
In Nursery we are looking at the religion of Christianity. So we have been making salt dough crosses, which we have decorated with the children's parents. We have also had Father James visit us in class, to speak to the children and parents.
As part of our science week we are studying the body's senses. The children have been taking part in experiments and have been testing our touch, taste, hearing and sense of smell.
During this term we have been looking at the seasons and how the weather and plants change outside. So we have been in our outside learning area looking for evidence of the change in season.
In Nursery we have been learning a song about Autumn. Watch the video below to hear us sing.
