Welcome to Nursery Class
Miss Faragher and Mrs Entwistle
Jesse's daddy came into nursery to do some football training with us. We did some stretches to get our muscles ready and then we played a game of chase to warm up. We then took some penalty kicks and had a game of football. There were some good saves made by the goalkeepers and also goals were scored along with great celebrations! Good luck Mr Rowe at your new club and thank you for coming in, we had a great time.
We had a great day at Stockley Farm with Reception Class. Richard showed us around the farm for the day and told us lots of interesting information about the animals and we had a good sing along on the tractor ride! He was very impressed with the things that the children already knew about animals and the questions they answered. We met lots of different farm animals including some that were only a few days old, bottle fed the baby goats, stroked some smaller animals in Pet's Corner, helped to groom Duncan the pony and took a walk through the nature trail. What a busy but fun day!
It has been a very busy first term in the nursery. Our first topic 'All About Me' helped children to settle into their new class...finding out about the different areas of the classroom, getting to know everyone, trying new things and having lots of fun!
The children really enjoyed the story 'Where's My Teddy?' by Jez Alborough. This led to lots of different activities and to finish we had a 'Teddy Bear Day' when we invited our favourite teddies in from home.
