Welcome to Nursery!

Bobby Bear!

 

Every Friday a 'Star Learner' is awarded to one child in Nursery. Bobby Bear goes home with that child for the weekend. The children love this.

Bobby has his own suitcase on wheels, his favourite books, toothbrush and his own teddy bear.

Bobby is looking forward to going home with all the children.

Nursery's Class Bear

This week is 'Just Talk Week' (21st - 27th November). In Nursery we watched 'Feeling Better' on teach BBC. We focused on feeling sad. The children shared with each other their memories about their feeling sad.

We then thought of ways we could make someone happy if they were felling sad. 

Here is the clip we watched which sparked discussions about 'sad feelings'.

Please make sure your child has a pair of wellies that can stay at school. We will be outside in all weathers taking risks and getting messy!
