Dear Parents/ Carers,

A warm welcome to the Nursery class!

My name is Mrs Szymczak and working alongside me are Mrs Hopkins and Mrs Decruz. 

We are very excited about the year ahead!

We know that starting school is a huge step and our aim is to create calm, friendly and fun environment to ensure your children settle well. 

Watch this space to see all the fun and exciting things we do in the class.

Nursery children love to do a classroom workout to help them stay fit!

We acted out the story 'The sleeping beauty'. We used our imagination and lots of language to retell the story to our classmates. We had so much fun!

This week we have been reading the story 'Elmer'. We have been very busy taking part in number activities linked to the story.

Nursery children made beautiful masks on the basis of the story 'Rumble in the jungle.

We have started a new topic this term - 'Animals'. Children enjoyed exploring a new role play area 'Veterinary Surgery'.

This week we have been learning about Judaism. We tried on Jewish traditional clothing and made a Menorah, one of the Jewish symbols.

Concluding Black History Month, children made their own African drums and were very proud drumming together!

This week we continued discovering African culture. We read the book 'Baby goes to market'. Children had a chance to taste the fruit from the story, they also made delicious fruit salad and enjoyed painting African patterns.

During RE lesson nursery children were looking at the Bible. They listened to the story of Noah's Ark and enjoyed retelling in through play. They also painted beautiful rainbows for our display.

To celebrate Black History Month we read the story 'Handa's Surprise'. Children have learnt about animals living in Africa. They enjoyed finger painting and retelling the story using props.

October is the Month of the Rosary. Nursery children had a chance to learn about the rosary and created their own beautiful rosaries.

Nursery have been looking at the topic 'All about me' and have been making self portraits!
