Tidy up Song (to the tune of Frere Jacques)

Tidy up time, tidy up time,

everyone, everyone,

put it all away now, put it all away now,

till it's done, till its done

 

Carpet Song (to the tune of If you're happy and you know it)

Put your bottoms on the floor on the floor

Put your bottoms on the floor on the floor

Put your bottoms on the floor not the ceiling or the door, put your bottoms on the floor on the floor.

Cross your legs on the floor on the floor

Cross your legs on the floor on the floor

Cross your legs on the floor, now you have done it all before cross your legs on the floor on the floor.

Put your hands on your lap on your lap

Put your hands on your lap on your lap

Put your hands on your lap and give yourselves a clap, put your hands on your lap on your lap.

Put your fingers on your lips on your lips

Put your fingers on your lips on your lips

Put your fingers on your lips and seal it with a zip

Put your fingers on your lips on your lips.

This week we will have a full class. Our children who have returned have settled back in to the nursery routines so quickly and calmly - we are very proud of them. Home visits as well as settling in sessions are now completed for our new families. Thank you for inviting us into your homes. We are looking forward to 'Exploring and Playing' with your child over the coming weeks and months.

We will continue to develop the whole school topic of 'Amazing Places, Amazing Spaces' this week as we begin to look at life under the sea.

Our story of the week is:

Our song(s) of the week are: familiar nursery rhymes, such as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, The Wheels on the Bus, Incy Wincy Spider, 1 2 3 4 5 once I caught a fish alive, A Sailor went to sea sea sea.

All of the nursery rhymes this week can be found on the BBC School Radio Nursery Songs and Rhymes website. See the top of the page for the link.

 

The value this week is: Trust 

Some of our learning opportunities this week will include:

  • exploring the nursery environment - inside and outside and beginning to express our own preferences and interests
  • hopefully separating from our parents without too much upset
  • using paints and different fish stencils to make fish shapes on paper.

  • using resources in the craft area to make a jelly fish

  • reading our story Commotion in the Ocean and looking at different creatures that live in the Ocean.

With your child at home this week you could: 

  • encourage your child to put on and take off coat by him/herself.

  • sing our Wake up dance, Tidy up and Come to the Carpet songs

  • we are rabbit class - find out 1 or 2 facts about rabbits. You could bring these facts to nursery to share with us.

Week beginning 11/09/17

Our first whole school topic this year will be 'Amazing Places, Amazing Spaces.' We have introduced this topic by talking about our summer holidays and looking at a map of the world. We then looked at the song 'It's a wonderful world' Click on the link to watch and listen to the song!

The returning children and their families have been busily preparing a display for our classroom on different aspects of the song. We have had many parents singing/humming the song in the last week. The display should be finished this week . Please remember to have a look! 

Week beginning 04/09/17
