Celebration Time

Fireflies, we are nearly at the end of your journey through Nursery. Although we have not been together for quite a while, we have some lovely memories of our time in Nursery. Can you all close your eyes and think back to when you were in Nursery- what can you remember? What is your favourite memory- there are so many to choose from! Here are ours:

Miss Kinsella: One of my favourite memories is the ‘Singing Show’. I was so proud of you all performing our songs to your grown-ups. ‘Hurry, Hurry, Drive the Firetruck‘ was my favourite.

Mrs Adams: One of my favourite memories is when I introduced you all to my pet guinea pigs . You were all so gentle with them.

Mrs Wyld: One of my favourite memories is looking at all your wonderful crafts, particularly the fire breathing dragon paintings and the fire engines.

Miss Davis: One of my favourite memories is playing ‘What’s the Time Mr Wolf?’ We had lots of fun running away from ‘the wolf’!

Talk to your grown-up about your favourite memories in Nursery. Maybe you could draw a picture and keep it somewhere really safe. Look back over the blog or through your learning journey on Tapestry.

Message to Fireflies

Hello Fireflies,

Hope you are all well. Did you enjoy the story ‘Mr Gumpy’s Outing’? It is so funny when the animals and the children fall out of the boat- they might remember to listen next time.

Thank you for helping Miss Kinsella and her son James blend the sounds together- she could hear you calling out the words!

Did you enjoy predicting which objects would float or sink with Mrs Lamb? Have you tried different objects? You could try a sponge.

Have a look at the sunflower plants Miss Kinsella planted. They are growing well. She is going to plant them in the ground and hopefully they will grow into beautiful sunflowers.

Have a lovely weekend!

Love from,

Miss Kinsella, Mrs Wyld, Mrs Adams, Miss Davis and Mrs Lamb
