This week we have focused our learning around the ducklings and Easter. We have done lots of observing, talked about what we could see happening and we even learned that a duck has a bill and not a beak. The children have done some lovely paintings, that I shared on the school website and they created a duckling by ripping/tearing paper. The children have grown in loving, caring and kindness, just like Jesus. We have started to share the Easter story and the children have created a cross to help us to remember Jesus on Good Friday and Easter Sunday. At this age it is enough to know that Jesus died on a cross, they don't need to know the details of what happened before he died. We have talked about Jesus rising again on Easter Sunday and we have explained to the children that this only happened to Jesus and that other people who have died will not come back to life again.
Happy creating with the Easter Bonnets, please bring them in on Tuesday.

We have had an egg-citing week in the Nursery and the children have been super egg-cited today, watching the ducklings hatch out of the eggs. You can see some videos on this website, see the home learning page for information.
On the 30th March 2021 we will be having an Easter Bonnet parade. This is a brilliant time to be creative at home and the children like showing their friends what they have created. Please work with your children at home to create an Easter Bonnet and bring them in on Tuesday 30th March. We look forward to seeing them. There are many ideas out there on the internet.
Please can all clothing be named. The classroom is starting to get warmer, with the rise in temperature and the children are wanting to take off their jumpers. We tell the children to put their jumper into their bag but the majority end up on the floor, it helps if the jumpers are named so that we can get them back to the correct owner. If you have another name in your child's jumper please add your child's name.
Have a great weekend

This week we have been thinking about our Mummy, ahead of Mother's Day and talking about how special Mummy's are and all of the things that they do for us. We have created a wonderful painting/printing by using fruit/vegetables of flowers and the children really took their time when doing this. On the back of the painting you will find a drawing, each child really took their time to do this and we had some long conversations. It took us four days to complete both activities! We have recorded a song of the children singing a song for their mummy and this can be found on your child's Early Essence. I hope that all of the mums get spoiled this Sunday.
Each day we are saying a Lenten Prayer and we are continuing to think about how we can grow in love, kindness, goodness and caring during this time, to be more like Jesus. We are also thinking about those long 40 days that Jesus stayed in the desert.
We have investigated seeds this week and we have been exploring what they might be and what they could grow into. Each child has created a Greenhouse and a seed has been added today. Ask your child what they think might happen to the seed. We have had some lovely daffodils on our Prayer table this week and we have talked about the stem, petals and leaves. We have commented on the roots of a plant too. We will continue to talk about Growth over the next few weeks.

Have a lovely weekend
