Pebbles Nursery from 6 March 2017

Welcome to our second page...

We finished the year with our Grand Show where we performed "Mr Gumpy's Outing" by John Burningham. The Deputy Head, Mrs. Lowden, presented us with our Learning Journey Books and then we had tea in the nursery with our friends and families.

We have also had a party where we visited the Reception Classes for party games and then went back to the nursery to make "Frozen" themed cakes, have party food and ice cream cones and then round up the party with "pass the parcel"!

Phew!!!

We will miss our Pebbles Nursery!!!

Welcome to term 6

GIANT Shoes!!!

Making key rings out of air-drying clay. We rolled the clay into a ball and then squashed them into oval and round shapes. We then made interesting patterns using clay tools. We left them to dry overnight, ready to be painted and covered in glitter!

Shaving cream is a great medium for practicing pre-writing patterns. Pre-writing patterns include waves, hills, circles and swirls.  Mastering pre-writing patterns is the precursor to developing great handwriting. These shapes form the foundation of our letters so children need to be able to do these patterns smoothly and effortlessly if they are to develop legible handwriting. It is messy but it cleans up easily with a towel! (It’s oh so soft to touch and smells lovely, too!)

Meet this week’s

Tidy Inspectors 

(Week beginning 6 March 2017)

 

At the end of our nursery session we go around the room and check that everything is tidy and in its proper place. If it’s not, we have to choose some friends to come and sort out the mess! It’s a hard choice to make, because everyone wants to help the Tidy Inspector! Once everything is spick and span, we can tick off our check list.

Job done!
