Dear Nursery children,

 

This weekend I want you to look for a photo of when your parents got married. Talk to your grown-up about this special day and how they celebrated. Where did they get married? Did they wear special clothes? Who celebrated with them? Was there music, singing or dancing? How did your grown-ups feel on this day? If your grown-ups haven't got a photo maybe they could show you photos of a wedding that you or they have attended. 

Please bring the photo with you, next week. You could stick it in your Home-Wow Book or bring it in loose and we can copy it for you. We will be talking about this celebration on Wednesday.

 

Have a great weekend

Dear Children,

 

Yesterday, it was 12 days since we celebrated Christmas. This is known as the Epiphany. Can you remember what we celebrate on Christmas day? The birth of Baby Jesus, the Son of God. 

 

Did you know that it took the Three Kings/Wisemen all of this time 12 days to travel on their camels to see Baby Jesus? That is such a long way! Can you remember what they followed? They followed a... STAR! They followed the star through deserts, across seas (on a boat with their camels), over mountains, through valleys, it would’ve been a long, hard journey but they kept on going. With them they had three gifts, very expensive gifts to give to the new baby can you remember what the gifts were?  Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. Do you remember when we explored frankincense, we burned some and we said that the smell reminded us of church? We also explored essence of Myrrh. That had a strong smell too. We didn’t have any gold, unfortunately maybe your grown-ups have something made of the precious metal to show you.

 

If you could travel to baby Jesus what gift would you take to him? Maybe you could draw a picture of what you would give in your book.

 

Have a great weekend

Dear Nursery children,

 

Well done for a great show today. Give yourself a big clap. This weekend's home learning is to watch the show with your grown-ups and to talk about what song you liked the best.

 

Have a good weekend

Dear Nursery children,

 

This week we have been very busy decorating our classroom but there is one more job to do. We need to decorate our class Christmas tree, the one on the wall. At the moment it has a photo of each of you, wearing a festive hat and some plain baubles. This weekend your challenge is to make a decoration for our tree. Keep it small, hopefully we will have 20 to add! It's up to you to decide what you would like to make. It could be as simple as cutting out a bauble shape and colouring it in.

 

Have fun being creative,

Dear children,

 

Thank-you for sharing the leaves that you found on your leaf hunt. I hope that you had fun doing it. 

This week we started to share the story Stick Man. This week can you go on a stick hunt and think of all the different things that you could do with a stick.

 

Please bring a stick into school, next week. When finding a stick please be careful and watch that you are not touching anybody with the stick.

 

Happy hunting

Hello Nursery children,

 

Thank-you so much for the wonderful Home-Wow that was completed, last week. It was lovely to see your Baptism photos and drawings. It's a very special celebration for you and your family and it's fantastic that you could talk about it with your grown-ups. I saw some wonderful candles, fonts with holy water, different Priests and lots of yummy looking cakes! I even spotted our very own Father Jim.

 

This week we have been learning about Autumn. We started the week by going on a Leaf Hunt in our school playground. I wonder if you could go on a Leaf Hunt over the weekend and find leaves that are different colours, sizes and shapes to the ones that we found? 

 

We're going on a leaf hunt, we're going right away, lets find colourful leaves, what a wonderful day...

 

Happy hunting

Dear Nursery children,

 

Next week we will be learning about the celebration of Baptism. Please could you put a photo into your Home-Wow Books and talk with your grown-ups about what happened during your special celebration. What colour did you wear? Who are your God parents? Who came to your Baptism? Did you have a party?

 

Have a good weekend

Dear Nursery children,

 

This week we have started to talk about celebrations. We celebrated Mr Troll's birthday and we learned about a festival of lights called Diwali. In your home wow book this week can you put a photo/draw a picture of a birthday that you have celebrated? What did you do? How did you celebrate? Did you have cake? Did you get any cards or presents? Did you have special food? It doesn't have to be your birthday it could be one of your grown-ups.

 

Have a great weekend

Dear Nursery children,

 

Give yourselves a big pat on the back for making it through your first half term. You have done really well.

This week take home your Home Wow book and share your half term news. I know that some of you are going away so maybe you could add a photo to your book and tell us a little bit about this, in your book. If your not going away tell us about something that you enjoyed doing. 

 

Have a great week off, stay safe

Dear Nursery Children,

 

This weekend I would like you to talk to your grown-up's about your time in Nursery. What do you like to do when you are at Nursery? Who do you like to play with? Is there something else that you would like to do in Nursery?

 

Please remember to bring your Home wow books back on Tuesday. We ask you to do this so that we can share your work with your friends.

 

Have a good weekend

Dear Nursery children,

 

This week your Home-Wow is to talk to your grown-ups about why you think your family is so special. Can you draw pictures of your family or stick some photos into your Home-Wow book and ask your grown-up to write down why you think that your family is special and why you love them so much.

 

Have a lovely weekend

Hello Nursery,

 

Welcome to the Home Learning page.

 

This week we have been talking about some eight legged creatures, that have eight eyes, hairy legs, small claws and pale blue blood. Can you remember what they are called?

 

This weekend I want you to go on a Spider Hunt. Look around your home in all the dark places and in any holes that you may have. If you can't find any spiders inside look around when you are outside. You might not see a spider but you may see their home. Can you remember what a spider home is called?

 

In your Home-Wow Book can you draw a picture of what you found. Please only use one page of your Home-Wow Book, per task. Ask your grown-up to write down what you say about your drawing and where you found a Spider. Please can grown-ups also date the page. 

 

Have a great Spider Hunt and don't forget to bring your book back on Tuesday.
