Here is this week’s Assembly. Today we will all go home at the usual times and begin our Spring Break. For many of us that means enjoying Easter treats. Other families will be celebrating Holi and spring festivals, or getting ready for Ramadan and looking forward to Eid. However, we’ll all be looking forward to spending some time with our families and enjoying the changes spring is bringing to our world.
I hope you will all check back later to enjoy the opening of this year’s Art Gallery – the exhibition is all about HOPE. https://youtu.be/p-mYy-evDZo
It’s Fantastic Friday again, where we showcase the brilliant work and play in the nursery and at home each week! This week we have been reading the story Percy the Park Keeper and the Secret Path, this has lead to lots of interesting discussion about mazes and animals. We also discussed how maps and signs could help us to navigate our way around the nursery and the wider world. We have been designing our own mazes; drawing them and also building them with recycling and building blocks! We are still discussing Spring and have made some lovely flowers using lots of different materials and talked about what we like to do on sunny spring days! We have been talking about the life cycles of plants and animals and learning about their different stages of life and what they need to grow. We even started planting some flowers and cress to watch the growing process and helped to clean up and water our flowers at the front gate. We have been playing lots of imaginary games in our house corners; solving crimes as police officers, going on adventures as princesses and being very busy shopkeepers! We were building amazing structures with our bricks indoors and outdoors, completing our animal puzzles and practising our counting. We have been enjoying lots of messy play with water, mud, sand and shaving foam. We have enjoyed being out in the sunshine; riding bikes and scooters, playing with our mud kitchen, whittling sticks at forest school and eating some yummy picnic snacks!
Please continue to post your lovely pictures of the work and play taking place at home to the Learning Journals and let us know if you need any help with this! We love to see the fun you have at home!
On the 1st of April (next Thursday) we shall launch the online Art Gallery for 2021. All the classes and in particular, the Art Reps have been working really hard to help prepare the Art Gallery this year.
To help you feel even more excited about it, below are a selection of the posters to advertise our Art Gallery this year, created by our very talented Art Reps!
This week’s rhyme is “Hot cross buns”. Have fun and please share your work on your learning journal or comment on this blog post. You can also email photos to the school office for our Fantastic Friday celebration of your work.
