Friday 28th February 




Welcome back! I hope you all had a lovely break, it was lovely listening to all the children’s stories of what they did and they really enjoyed showing their friends the pictures or art work they created during their break.


This week

This week in Nursery, we have begun our new topic ‘Changing and Growing’. We have been reading the story ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and discussing how the beanstalk grew and what we would need to grow our very own beanstalks. We also started our new Jigsaw topic, ‘Healthy Me’, looking at our body parts and discussing different exercises we can do to help strengthen these body parts.


Next week

On Monday, we will be visiting Odds Farm, where we will observe and discuss what animals need to grow and how they change as they grow. This trip is an all-day trip and, therefore, we ask both Comet and Rocket children to be in Nursery by 8.45 on Monday, so that we are ready to leave by 9.15. Children are expected to arrive back in school by 3.30. Please can I ask that children are wearing weather appropriate clothing (i.e. waterproof coat and wellies). Also children will need to bring in their own packed lunch. Next week, we will also be planting our own seeds so we can observe our very own flowers change over a long period of time.  We will discuss what we need to do to look after them and make sure they grow.



For homework this week, please complete the small task of listening to the story below and discussing the story with your children.  Please talk about the kinds of animals they think they will see at the farm on Monday.
