Our Very Busy Winter Term
This term in Nursery, we have been very busy reading stories about Supertato and the evil pea.
We have also been learning all about different types of vegetables. The children decided to make soup for their parents at stay and play. We prepared and cut the vegetables into small pieces. We served soup to our mums and dads at stay and play.
Towards the end of term, we were all very excited as it was snowing! The children in nursery were so excited to play in the snow, we made snow angels and snow men.
Costa Coffee Visit
Ducklings class have been playing in the Costa roleplay area in Robins class. The children really enjoyed making pretend hot chocolates for all their friends. We decided that we would really like to visit Costa to buy a real hot chocolate.
On Tuesday 16th and Wednesday 17th January Duckling class visited Costa, the children had to order and pay for their own drink and they even had to tidy up their cups when they had finished as well.
Nursery Christmas Stay & Play Session – Friday 8th December
On Friday 8th December, Nursery held it’s Christmas Stay & Play session where parents were invited into the nursery to work and play with their children. We had lots of fun making sparkly Christmas tree decorations, glittery cards and we even got to make a sticky sweet snowman biscuit.
We are the duckling pirates! We have been designing and making our own pirate hats. You can see them being made and us wearing them!
Using the Tool Workbench
We have been learning how to use the workbench and tools safely.
Good teaching is allowing pupils to make up for previous gaps in their learning. Pupils have good attitudes to learning because teachers plan activities which maintain pupils interest and enthusiasm. Pupils are proud of their work and this is reflected in their books, which are very neatly presented.
The academy provides well for pupils of all abilities. The most able pupils are given work which is at the right level and are encouraged to do as well as they can and so they make good progress.
Pupils enjoy reading and use the well-stocked library to choose a different book each week. Daily reading sessions, together with well-taught phonics (the sounds that letters make) help to secure pupils good achievement in reading.
