Merry Christmas everyone!

We have all enjoyed using our new outdoor stage area. There are lots of hats to put on and Mrs Wilson has bought some microphones! What a great way to practice the songs for our Christmas production!

Friends

This week in Apple class we have been thinking about how to be a kind friend.

Our ‘Star of the Day’ each day has been someone who has been kind to a nursery friend. The children have helped each other, played nicely together and comforted each other then when they feel upset.

Have you been a kind friend this week?  What kind thing will you do tomorrow?

Look at our amazing writing about being a kind friend:

We have had lots of fun learning about and celebrating the Hindu festival of Diwali this week in Apple class. We were very busy making Diwali cards, Diwa lamps, firework pictures and Mehndi patterns. We tried on some Indian clothes, tasted traditional sweets and even had a go at Hindu dancing. The children are now very knowledgeable about the festival and helped their parents answer the questions on the question table each day!

This week we are reading the story ‘Leaf Man’ by Lois Ehlert and thinking about how the natural world changes in Autumn. Do you know any other books about Autumn?

Thank you for all the leaves and other Autumn treasures you have brought in so far. We are enjoying looking at them and talking about them and using them to make pictures and living collages. Look at our lovely ‘Leaf Man’ display next time you’re in nursery.

Our Gruffalo topic is lots of fun. We have been making Gruffalo faces, retelling the story with puppets, listening to the story cd and writing about the characters. Next week we are making Gruffalo crumble!

A big thank to everyone who brought a Julia Donaldson story in to share at story time. We are trying our best to read them all!
