We looked at our mission statement during collective worship. We know that each day we are going to try and follow Jesus.

We listened to music and thought about how special Jesus is. We placed our footprints on our prayer focus.

“Jesus looks after us” Lyla

“Jesus looks after our planet” Poppy

“He is kind to us” Caragh

We are really settling in to school life, we know know the areas in which we can play within the classroom and the outside environment.

We are loving our pirate topic, this week we learnt how to role play and share the pirate resources. Next week we are going to be searching for pirate treasure

Oh no a very strange pirate came to school today. He made us all walk the plank. We used our balancing skills to try and stay on the plank and not to fall into the sea.

What a fantastic time we had on Monday at our first ever little bikers session.

The rain did not bother us at all and we were whizzing round the playground before you could say little bikers!!!

We are looking forward to next Monday please remember to send gloves and a coat so we can stay warm.

We have set up a cutting station in our class as we noticed that the  children needed to develop their fine motor skills,  we have been able to cut up a variety of materials and our busy fingers are getting stronger each day.

We had a parcel delivered to Reception yesterday we got a curiosity box, we are not allowed to touch just to look with our eyes. We worked with our talk partners to try and work out what was in it and why.

We decided that we had been sent a special glue stick so we could create wonderful models.

We celebrated All Saints day we made a medal to say what we do each day which helps us to try and be a saint and to become closer to God.

We placed all our saint medals on a prayer focus and we said thank you to God for all our saints in heaven and on earth.

Our role play area is a party. We made a list of all the things that we could do in the party role play area.

We are really developing our phonics and our writing by making lists and invitations.

We have got our new half term off to a busy start.

IMG_4524IMG_4523IMG_4504IMG_4495

We know that we must remember all the people who have died in all the wars. We have been independently making our own poppy’s to make a remembrance garden  to bring with us to our very special school service on Monday.

What a busy Monday!

We made a poppy garden in continuous provision and we brought it to the hall for a very special prayer service for the whole school. We listened to Mrs Kinder play the last post and then we had a minutes silence to remember all those who have died in wars.

We also learnt about Diwali and we listened to the story of Rama and Sita, we are looking at the very special Hindu celebration of light.

Nursery & Reception – God’s Family

Creation is the first and universal revelation of God’s love … Each human person

 is made in God’s image …

Religious Education Curriculum Directory

This half term, the children in the Nursery and the Reception classes will be learning about God’s Family. Throughout the topic, the children will be given opportunities to become aware that God made all the people in the world to be part of his family and that we are part of it too.

 

They will learn that God made us to know and love him, as well as to show our love for him by helping one another. They will find out that God has given us gifts so that we can show his love to others.


At home as
Christmas approaches, they will learn that God’s greatest gift to us was to send his only son Jesus and learn how to respond to that gift.

You could help your children by:

  • reminding them that Christmas is about the gift of Jesus to us and not just about receiving presents.
  • talk about your family and draw pictures of Jesus being part of your family
  • take them to see baby Jesus at church during the Christmas season.

Look at our beautiful angels. We know that the Angel Gabriel had an important role in the Christmas story. He asked Mary if she wanted to be the mother of Jesus and Mary said yes.

 

IMG_3405 IMG_3406 IMG_3407 IMG_3408 IMG_3409 IMG_3410 IMG_3411 IMG_3412 IMG_3413 IMG_3414 IMG_3415 IMG_3416 IMG_3417 IMG_3418 IMG_3419 IMG_3420

We had a fab time at the pantomime.

“Oh no you didn’t”

“Oh yes we did”

We were so grown up and well behaved. We are a credit to our school.

We had a mysterious parcel arrive all the way from the North Pole it was very cold.

We passed it around and tried to think of what could be in it, we thought it could be a snowflake, a penguin, an icicle, an ice cream. Each child had a guess but we got a surprise when we opened it it was an elf all the way from the North Pole called Cheeky Bells.

 

IMG_3421

We found Cheeky Bells this morning reading a book in our new library.
