Our curriculum provides a range of creative, challenging and inspiring experiences for all. This equips our children with the life skills to be happy, flourish and be successful...Today, tomorrow and in the future

Attendance

Whole School Attendance

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. 

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!

Welcome to Anglesey Primary School…Information about Isolation if someone in the household has tested positive for Covid. The following information is taken directly from a Public Health webinar with Dr Justin Varney: Director of Public Health, Birmingham City Council. (06.01.22) If someone in your household has tested positive and your child is 5 years old or over, they should come into school. The child should do daily lateral flow tests. If someone in your household has tested positive and your child is under 5, then they should stay at home with the person who has tested positive until the isolation period is over.
