Love, Live and Learn
Welcome to Nursery class at Our Lady and St Swithin's.
We strive to lay a good foundation for the childrens' future, by providing a secure and stimulating environment that encourages your childs' curiosity and interest to develop.
Playing together, children learn to co-operate and to care for each other, whilst developing confidence in themselves and their abilities through the many activities both indoors and outdoors. The Nursery Team are delighted to speak with you each day about our exciting timetable and curriculum.
This week we have started our new Come and See topic, Growing. The children have talked about Spring being the time things start to grow. They have planted cress seeds and are excited to watch them grow. We also have frogspawn in our class. The children will be observing how they grow and change. The class have also been on a nature walk around the school grounds to observe signs of Spring.
We ended our Gathering topic with a rejoice celebration. The children thanked God for loving them.
Our new topic is Gathering and we will explore how and why we gather together at Mass to worship God. During this topic we explore times we gather together as a class and with our families. We talk about how we feel when we are all together. We also look at how we gather as a Parish Family at Mass and how we welcome each other.
The Three Little Pigs
The children have enjoyed learning the Three Little Pigs story. We have explored building houses using different materials, counting pigs and retelling the story using masks and puppets.
Happy New Year 2019
In January we begin our new topic about celebrating and celebrations.
We start January with our own surprise New Year party in Nursery with lots of fun, joy and dancing. During this month we will look at the months of the year, birthdays, winter weather and listen and write many stories including the Presentation, The Star and Going on a Bear Hunt.
Children will also be continuing to work on Phase 1 and 2 phonics and numbers to 20.
