Nursery

We have been working together to create an Easter Garden.

Parent Engagement Science Sessions - Let's build rockets! (morning session)

We were so proud of our designs that we wanted to photograph them using the iPads.

To make sure their journey into space was a comfortable one we also decided that they needed a chair to sit on. Have a look at our designs that we built and tested.

We are Super Scientists! Goldilocks needed our help. She sent a special message asking if we can help her to go into space with the three bears. We decided that she would need a rocket for her and the three bears. So we started by building 4 different sized rockets.

Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have been exploring tracing letters in oats, ordering different sized bears, chairs and beds for the bears, building a home for the three bears and sharing out porridge fairly for the bears. We have been busy!

St David's Day Celebrations

We went on a special visit to St Philip Evans Church. Father Gareth taught us alot about all the different artefacts inside the church.

Working together is better! All of us needed to shake the parachute to get the frog down the hole. It was hard work but we did it!

We have been learning our colours in Welsh and in English.

Dentist Week

 

Last week we received a very important message from Dewi the Dragon from at the Welsh Assembly.

 

 

Hello St Philip Evans Nursery – I need your help. The children in Wales are not looking after their teeth very well.

Can we help all the children in Wales have healthier teeth?

 

The Nursery children decided they can be excellent role models. Firstly the children went on a QR code hunt outside and discovered all the ways in which they could help keep teeth healthy. 

                                                        

                                                          

The children experienced a whole week of learning all about how to keep our teeth healthy and the role of a dentist.

Learning activities included:

Mathematical Development – Counting teeth,  measuring amounts of toothpaste, ordering photographs of the tooth brushing process

Language, Literacy and Communication – Dentist role play, making an information video about teeth, tracing toothbrushes, writing with toothpaste, following picture instructions – how to brush your teeth correctly.

 

Personal, Social, Cultural and Well Being Development - Importance of tooth brushing, sorting healthy and unhealthy foods and drinks, playing Healthy and Unhealthy bingo game, health and hygiene, sharing healthy snacks and drinks together

 

Knowledge and Understanding of the World:

ICT – Using I Pads to scan QR codes, using I Pads to take a photograph of your friend’s teeth, using the I Pad to video the role play and information video, using the computers to sort healthy and unhealthy foods

Science – sorting healthy and unhealthy foods, investigating what happens when you mix fruit and milk together to make a healthy smoothie drink

 

Creative Development – painting with toothbrushes, making a mouth and teeth, singing the toothbrush song

 

Physical Development – using tweezers to pick up teeth and placing it on the mouth template, making teeth from white playdough, chopping fruit for the smoothie, brushing the baby’s teeth.

Winter and exploring ice

See how we celebrate!

Farm Week

 

This week we have been learning about animals that live on the farm. 

 

The children have made their own butter and spread it on a cracker to taste it! They also tasted other dairy products such as cream, cheese and milk. The children then made their own milkshakes. Take a look at the photographs below. They show the children shaking the cream to make the butter as well as the children tasting the dairy products.

 

We are now looking forward to meeting all the animals at Cefn Mably Farm next week as well as meeting Santa!

Welcome back to all our Nursery children and a special welcome to our new starters.

 

Your child’s teachers are:

Monday and Tuesday – Mrs Henton

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday – Mrs Scott

Mrs Tyler is the Teaching Assistant for Nursery.

 

Fruit

 Fruit Clip Art

We would like every child to bring a piece of fruit every day. However, we will not be sharing the fruit with the rest of the class – the piece of fruit your child brings to school is the piece they will eat. If your child requires their fruit chopped/peeled etc, please do this at home and pop it in a container with your child’s name on.

 

Toy Fund

Please, if you can, bring  in a pound a week. This pound helps us to pay for extra special items, resources and equipment to enhance the children s learning.

Many Thanks.

 

 

Lending Library

We have changed the way we running the ‘Lending Library’. We would like the parents more involved in choosing a book with their child. Therefore, we will be opening the Nursery gate from 8.45am (morning session) and from 12.45 (afternoon session) on a Tuesday and Thursday for parents/carers to choose a book with their child.
