F1 Spring Term Newsletter

 

Wow! What a half term we had!

We started the half term by welcoming 12 new children to our afternoon sessions. They are now all settled into nursery routines and have made lots of new friends.

The sun finally came out just in time for our ‘Let it Grow’ topic and allowed staff to begin to put our plan into action to make the outside area more appealing and fun.

We have been sharing stories about growing and learning all about looking after plants – the staff have been trying to learn lots too as we are not the most ‘green-fingered’ of people!

We planted some of ‘Jack’s magic beans’ in clear pots early in the term and watched them develop roots, stems and leaves while they were in our greenhouse. We have now planted them in the nursery garden and are eagerly awaiting a visit from the giant!

We also planted some very tiny seeds called cress and watched them speedily grow in time for us to enjoy egg and cress sandwiches just one week later on!

We used some of the ‘Piggy Money’ that parents have kindly donated to buy some small flowers, planters and hanging baskets. The children enjoyed getting their hands mucky creating the beautiful display that is now by the fence outside. We also received a donation of different herb plants so have revamped our overgrown herb garden. The children have been amazing at reminding us to water all of the plants!

This last week has been spent looking at different vegetables and finding out about how they grow. We eventually chopped them up and made them into a beautiful homemade vegetable soup.

We have also purchased some new decorations for outside and have redeveloped our outside small world area using some of the ‘Piggy Money’ that has been donated – thank you so much, we couldn’t have done it without your small weekly donations!

Our new topic for next half term will be ‘Oh I do like to be by the seaside’ and we have lots of fun activities planned for the children already.

We hope that you all have a lovely half term holiday and will see you all on Monday 5th June.

A few reminders…

  • As the summer will hopefully be here to stay, can we please remind you to send your children with hats and wearing sun cream every day. Water will be provided throughout the session and the amount of time spent outside will be assessed on a daily basis.
  • Forest School will take place on Fridays. Please remember to send children with named wellies in a carrier bag along with sensible clothing i.e. no dresses or skirts for girls.
  • Can we kindly ask that you do not allow older or younger siblings to play on or with the equipment and activities that are outside in the garden area when dropping off or collecting children from nursery. Thank you.

Gainsborough Hall Trip

On the 23rd of May KS1 visited Gainsborough Hall. We had a fantastic time and the behaviour of the children was brilliant.

We were shown around the hall by some Tudor ladies who told us all about life in the Tudor times. We loved the kitchen!

Looking at the Tudor Kitchens

The highlight of our day was a Tudor feast. We all had roles to play including the Royal party.

Henry VIII and his court

What a fantastic day!

Thank you to all the adults who came along to help us.
