Home Page

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. 

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!

In Nursery we have been making crowns, party invitations, dressing up, decorating biscuits with red, white and blue icing and constructing palaces with our wooden construction blocks.

Here are some photos of our activities:

Parent workshop: Celebrating National Numeracy Day!!

 

This week we encouraged parents to come in and join us for a workshop to celebrate National Numeracy Day.

 

You got to see your teachers modelling some numeracy based activities with the children and you then got to explore all of the different challenges set up all around our classrooms and outdoor space with your child/children.

 

We hope you enjoyed the workshop and that you found some of the tips and activity ideas useful for supporting your own child at home with numeracy.

We also want to thank you all for coming. 

 

Please feel free to upload photos or videos to Tapestry of your child exploring numeracy activities at home, as the teachers would love to see this! 

Celebrating Eid!

This week the majority of our community in Lozells have been celebrating the Islamic festival of Eid Ul Fitr.

 

In Nursery we have been using our creative, fine motor and writing skills to make Eid cards and draw our own mehndi. We have also been doing lots of speaking and listening with our friends about how you have been celebrating Eid.

 

We hope you had fantastic celebrations and really enjoyed these special times with your friends and family.

Parent workshop: Reading

 

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

 

You got to see your teachers modelling 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 that you found some of the tips and advice useful for supporting your own child at home with their reading.

 

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

Red Nose Day

Friday 18th March the school got involved in 'Red Nose Day'. 

The children and teachers came in either dressed in red or as an animal and it was great to see so many getting involved!!!
 
Thank you you all for your kind donations which will be going to help families and children internationally who are in need at this time.

 

Have a look at the pictures to see what fun we had!

World Book Day

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!

Today was pancake day where the children worked together to pour, measure and mix the ingredients!

They they 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, the children got to choose their own topping for their pancake and enjoyed the end product of all their hard work by eating it.

Most of the children reported that their pancakes tasted "yummy"!

Valentine's Day!

This week we have been celebrating Valentine's Day and making cards during our choosing time to give to someone we love.

This children had access to a variety of resources for their creation and they could really follow their own creative flair!

They explored how to use glue to enhance their card and some of them had a good go at writing in their card.

Chinese New Year

Throughout this week at nursery, the children have enjoyed learning all about Chinese New Year. They have taken part in a range of activities to learn more about Chinese culture and the Chinese New Year festival. The children have especially enjoyed making their very own stir fry and chopping the vegetables using a knife, as well as learning how to use chopsticks to eat. We have also made lanterns, explored writing Chinese symbols, took part in Dragon dancing and learnt all about the Chinese New Year calendar. Well done everyone! Please see photographs below. 

Festive Jumper Day

On Friday 10th December, the children came to school wearing their festive jumpers. We were able to collect so much food for the Handsworth Association of Schools Food Bank, so a big thank you to all those who donated.

We really appreciate your continued support.

Please see below for some photographs. 

Christmas Celebrations

This week in nursery, the children have been busy getting into the swing of Christmas by performing our Christmas carol, making cards in the workshop and putting up and decorating our classroom Christmas trees.

Here are some photos of what we have been up to!

Christmas Carol

Thank you to all the parents who attended our Christmas Carol on the 07.12.21. We were so proud of how well our children joined in with singing our favourite nursery rhymes and Christmas songs.

We just want to say a huge well done to all the children for their amazing efforts this year and we wish you all a lovely holiday and happy new year. 

 

Mo the Animal Man!

 

We had a very special visitor come to nursery on Friday, Mo the Animal man!

 

He bought lots of different creatures for the children to look at and stroke and if they felt brave enough.
We saw Rosie and Hannah the snake, Pascal the Chameleon, Yousuf the Tarantula, Amina/Hafsa the rabbit, Yahya the African Owl and so many more.

 

The children were 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 how animals use their 5 senses in the wild.

 

The children were so sensible and careful when stroking and touching the animals.
We can’t believe how brave you were and we are SO proud of you!

Parent Workshop

We just want to say a big thank you to all the parents who attended our first workshop of the year. We hope you enjoyed seeing just how amazing and independent your children are in nursery and learning about some of the things we do to support their learning and development. 

 

We will be having many other workshops in the future, so we look forward to having you all back in nursery soon. Thank you again for your time and support. 

Children in Need

 

Last week, we celebrated Children in Need by coming to school in our own clothes and donating money to charity!
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!
