Anglesey Primary School Together we make the difference

Home Page

Welcome

We have a vibrant and nurturing school community, where children are given the skills to become, inquisitive, resilient, independent learners. Providing a creative, challenging and inspiring curriculum for all. Equiping our children with the skills to be happy, flourish and be successful...Today, tomorrow and in the future

Celebrations / Events

Promoting diversity and inclusion is at the heart of everything we do, as we believe that all children have the right to have their own views, beliefs and religion. 

At nursery, we provide children with many opportunities to engage in activities that are based on their own and others' cultures, religions and beliefs. This is because we value the importance of celebrating differences and creating an inclusive learning environment for all. 

Parent Reading workshop!

 

 

This week we encouraged parents to come in and join us for our workshop about reading with your child.

 

You got to see your teachers model a reading activity with the children and you even got a chance to get involved yourself by reading with your child and talking about the story.

 

We hope you enjoyed the workshop and you found some of the tips and advice useful for supporting your own child at home with reading.

 

Please feel free to upload any videos or pictures of your child talking about their home book, as the teachers would love to see this!

 

 

Eid Party

The children had a fantastic time celebrating Eid with their teachers and friends.

Earlier in the week, the children have been learning all about Eid and they had made special decorations for the party.

On Friday, we all came to school dressed in our party clothes and we enjoyed playing a number of games such as musical statues and musical bumps. 

After lots of dancing, singing and playing the children then all sat down for some party food. 

We would just like to again thank all the parents for their amazing effort in helping provide food for the party. 

Easter

This week in nursery, we have been celebrating Easter. On Monday we went on an Easter Egg hunt outside where the children searched high and low for the hidden eggs.

The children have also enjoyed going on number egg hunts with their friends during Maths learning group time, making chocolate cakes and learning about how chocolate can be melted and making cards in the writing area. Some children decided to make an Easter card for their families and others decided to make cards for the chicks. 

 

The children have showed a great interest in learning all about the Easter celebration and sharing their own experiences of how they celebrate special days with their families. 

Please see some photographs below of the children's experiences.

 

World Book Day

02.03.23 - Today is World Book Day!

This week our story time book is 'The Colour Monster' by Anna Llenas.

The story explores how colours can represent emotions and how sometimes we can feel all mixed up and feel lots of different emotions all at the same time.

For World Book Day children came in wearing their favourite colour to celebrate the day!

We also had different colour and emotions exploration activities for the children to engage in too!

Pancake Day! 

 

17.02.23 - This week in nursery, we have been celebrating the upcoming pancake day and talking about why it is celebrated by many people. 

The children worked together to pour, measure and mix all the ingredients together. 

They then talked with the teacher about how they need to be careful around hot ovens and cooking equipment as it can be dangerous. 
To finish the activity, all the children got to choose their own topping for their pancake before eating it. This was a great opportunity to help support the children with learning how to use a knife and fork to cut the pancake into smaller pieces. 

Well done children, for all your hard work! 

 

Christmas Workshop 12.12.22

Thank you to all the parents who took part in our Christmas workshop. The children really enjoy having you in school where they can share these experiences with you and show you how incredibly creative and independent they are in their learning. 

 

Please see below for some photographs. 

Animal Man - 28.11.22

Today, we have had a very special visitor come to nursery. Mo, the Animal man.

He brought in lots of different animals for the children to look at and stroke and hold if they wanted to.

We had Shai the snake, Kermit the Horn Frog, Ant the rabbit, Selina the African Owl, Brian the African Snail, Rocco the Bearded Dragon, Lucky the Scorpion, Rosie the Tarantula and many more.


The children were all amazing at listening to Mo talk about the different animals and they enjoyed learning all about where they live and what they like to eat.

We also learnt about the 5 senses and how animals use their senses in the wild.
Children, you were all so sensible and careful when holding and stroking the animals and look how brave you were too! Well done everyone!

Playdough Workshop 17.11.22

We would like to say a big thank you to all the parents who attended our first workshop of the year.

We will be holding many more workshops in future, so we will look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Thank you again for your continued support and for all the lovely feedback we had. Please see some photographs below. 

 

Remembrance Day - 11.11.22

During these activities, the children have been learning all about why people wear poppies for Remembrance Day.

On Friday at 11am, the children also took part in a 1 minute silence to remember all those that we have lost in conflict. 

Diwali

This week, the children have been learning all about the celebration of Diwali. We have been looking at non-fiction books  and learning all about the religious festival and traditions. The children have also enjoyed sharing their own experiences of how they celebrate special days with their families too. 

The children have also had the opportunity to take part in a range of activities, from making Diva lamps in the malleable area to making their very own Rangoli patterns outdoors using chalk, coloured sand and lentils. 

Below are some photographs of the children's learning experiences. 

Black History Month

This week in nursery, the children have been celebrating Black History Month. We have been talking about the importance of being respectful and caring towards one another and what makes a good friend. We have also talked about our rights and the rights of others' and how we should all be treated fairly and equally. 

As part of our celebration, we have also been reading a fantastic book called 'Coming to England' by Floella Benjamin. It would be great if you could share this story with your child at home and ask them to tell you all about it. 

Please see link below for a copy of the story. 

Broomey Croft Farm

This week our classes went to Broomey Croft Farm to observe, pet, feed and learn about the animals. We got to explore the different areas of the farm and we even got to have a tractor ride, which was fan-tastic!!!!!

 

Some of the children were a little scared of feeding and touching the animals, but with some encouragement from their teachers they broke out of their comfort zone and soon they were independently feeding the animals with confidence!

 

Please see the photos below of the learning opportunities that took place.

Celebrating the Queen's Jubilee

Today at Anglesey Primary School we have been celebrating the Queen's reign of Great Britain for 70 years!

Children in Need

We had various Pudsey colouring and painting activities and during our assembly we discussed why we donate money to charity and who the money helps and how the money will help them.

Here are some photos of us from Friday! Enjoy!

Remembrance- 11/11/21

 

On Wednesday this week we participated in Remembrance Day by holding a 2-minute silence at 11am to remember all those that we have lost in conflict.

 

As a follow up activity, we talked about why people wear poppies and as a class we watched this lovely video:

"Poppies" on CBeebies - Children's Remembrance Day 2 Minutes' Silence Alternative

Instead of 2 minutes' silence, CBBC and CBeebies broadcast this 2 minute animation called "Poppies", showing war from the animals' points of view. Beautiful...

Learning about Diwali

 

This week we have been learning about Diwali and the festival of light.

We explored Rangoli patterns, diva lamps and the story of Rama and Sita. Have a look at the photos below to see what we got up to!

Black History Month -

Story Teller

In celebration of black history month, we had a very special storyteller called Mrs M come into nursery to act out and read an African story called 'Anansi and Brer Bear'. The story was about a family man who travelled far to find food for his family and he was given a magic table cloth and bowl and when he asked the items for food, they appeared in front of him like magic. However, when his wife washed the bowl and table cloth, the magic no longer worked. The children sat and listened beautifully to the story and they enjoyed taking part by doing actions and shouting out the repeated refrains.
 

Settling

 

This children have done a great job with settling in! They have their own coat peg which they can identify by their picture where they are able to put their belongings. 
Children have been shown and supported in accessing the cafe area for cereal, bagels or fruit. They are also learning how to pour their own drink of water or milk.

 

Take a look at the photos showing us getting to know our peers, teachers and surroundings!
