Happy Chinese New Year!
Nursery have had a great time learning and celebrating Chinese New Year. They have used different tools to make Chinese Lanterns, learned and performed a Dragon Dance and made a Stir Fry. The children really enjoyed cooking the Stir fry, learning the names of the vegetables and most of all using their senses to smell, see, feel and then taste the delicious food.
Happy New Year!
We would like to welcome all of our children and families back to school and we hope you had a restful holiday. The children have moved to their new classrooms and have settled in well.
This half term is Chinese New Year and we will be learning all about this exciting festival. The children will be cooking a stir fry. They will use their senses to taste, smell, look, feel and even listen to the vegetables as they fry. We will also be making Chinese lanterns and learning why these are so important to Chinese New Year.
It is also Valentines Day this half term and we will be making biscuits for some-one we love. We will write a list so that we know what ingredients we need. Whilst we make the biscuits we will observe how the ingredients change when mixed together and then how it changes from a dough to a biscuit when it is cooked in the oven.
Over this half term we will be writing a letter to the Zoo, as we will be learning all about the story of 'Dear Zoo'. When the children have wrote their letter, they will take them to the local post-box and post them. I wonder what animal they will choose?
On Tuesday 11th February we will be having a Parent meeting to talk about
E-Safety. During that week the children will be learning about keeping themselves safe on-line.
Children In Need Day
Nursery had a fantastic day celebrating and raising money for Children in Need. The children wore their own pyjamas and took part in a range of activities which included: creating a Pudsey Bear using various materials, Pudsey Counting and dancing. We talked with the children about the reason behind why we give to Charity and how we can help children who are less fortunate than ourselves "Its for children who don't have any toys" one of children told their friends. We would like to say a BIG Thank-you to all of Parents for their donations, as we raised £66.08.
National Fitness Day
Nursery took part in National Fitness Day!! We had a great time doing our exercises in range of ways...we found out nursery can do fantastic dancing, jumping, running, balancing and even playing Basketball!!
Starting Nursery School
This is a very exciting time for our children, as they start nursery, meet their new teachers and begin to make new friends. It is important for us to ensure that the children settle well into nursery and are happy in order for them to begin their learning journey.
At Anglesey Primary School we use the Early Years Curriculum to plan for your child's emergent learning needs, as well as allowing the children to follow their own interests during Child Initiated Play to further develop their learning. The teachers also plan a varied curriculum that is tailored to our children. This is updated each half term and can be viewed on the Curriculum page.
During this half term the children will learn:
How to be a good friend and share toys.
To develop their speaking and listening skills.
Be independent in self care e.g. going to the toilet and managing personal hygiene.
To become confident in exploring the indoor and outdoor classroom.
Once the children have settled we will have a variety of Parent Workshops. As a school we believe that working with our parents is of the upmost importance in order for our children to have the best education possible. As part of the workshops you will be able to see what and how we teach the children and in turn this allows for you to support your child's learning at home. The details of workshops will follow throughout the year.
We would like to Thank-you for your support in helping to settle the children and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to your child's teacher.
