Week 2 – Bears
This week in Cubs Class we have started learning about a new topic, all about Bears! We have started the topic by reading the story ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. We have enjoyed joining in with the different voices for Daddy, Mummy and Baby bear when reading the book and we have re-told the story in our very own bear’s cottage. On Friday we got to make our own porridge and at the end of the day we got a eat it. We thought it tasted “just right” as it was very delicious!
Week 1 – New starters
This week we have welcomed some new starters into Cubs Class. It is always nice having new children and we hope they have a wonderful future at Newton Hill School. The new children have really enjoyed themselves. They have been exploring the different learning areas, playing with the resources and making new friends. We are so proud of how they settled in school life, well done!
Week 13 – Christmas
This week in Nursery we are starting to get into the festive spirit! We have decorated our class Christmas tree and started making our Christmas cards to send home to our Mummies and Daddies. We have had lots of fun decorating our cards with glitter, pom poms and Christmas sparkles.
Week 12 – ICT
This week in Nursery we got some new ICT equipment in our Technology Area. We have thoroughly enjoyed exploring the various gadgets and playing with the new resources. Mrs Neal and Mrs Holliday have been very impressed with our ICT skills!
Week 11 – Shapes
This week in Nursery we have been learning all about shapes. We learnt the names of different 2D shapes and then went on a ‘shape walk’ to see what shapes we could find in and around our school. We did really well at finding lots of different ones! Back in the classroom, we made our faces using various shapes and we were very good at naming and describing the shapes that we had used.
Week 10 – Anti-Bullying week
This week in Nursery we have been celebrating Anti-Bullying Week. To help raise awareness we brought in donations and wore odd socks to show that ‘everyone is different but everyone is equal’. We also did lots of work about friendship and showed how we could be good friends by sharing, keeping everyone included and giving each other lots of compliments, smiles and hugs!
Week 8 – Bonfire Night
This week in Nursery we have been learning about Bonfire Night. We learnt about the history of bonfire night and found out about Guy Fawkes. We made our own firework pictures using paint, glitter and straws and they looked fantastic! We then talked about the different sounds fireworks made and used our phonics knowledge to try and write down some of the words.
Week 8 – Halloween
This week in Nursery we have been learning about Halloween. We have taken part in lots of exciting activities. We have made potions in the water area, baked ‘spider’ crispy buns with Mrs Holliday and got our hands messy when number hunting in the pumpkin remains! Even though it was very slimy, we had lots of fun.
