Nursery family fun session:  Writing and Mark making through Play

Observing Remembrance day

Children in Nursery learnt about Remembrance day. 

They learnt about the soldiers who died at the war and observed a 2-minute silence.

 They also went for a remembrance day parade to mark the occasion.

Fun Family Reading session in Nursery: 

At Nursery, we had a great turn out for our family reading sessions. It was particularly great to see so many dads taking out time to read with their children. 

This week we have been learning about changes and Autumn. Today we discussed important questions about Autumn such as  “Why do leaves fall off the trees in Autumn?’ and ‘Why do leaves change colour?’

After talking about Autumn, we went for an autumn walk to embed the learning. Children talked about what happens in autumn and collected autumn leaves. They talked about various colours of autumn leaves and also explored shapes and sizes of different leaves. They also quietly observed the birds chirping and the leaves falling off the trees.

Children were particularly fascinated by many spider’s webs that they found in the park. It was great to see children using words such as ‘crispy, spiky, crunchy and prickly to describe various textures.

This week EYFS have been learning about Marcus Rashford and the important things he has done to help hungry families and communities. This is as part of our Black History Month topic ‘Actions Speak Louder Than Words’.

We decided to collect food to be donated to St Mary’s Church, Leyton. Every Thursday the church provides hot meals for people in need and also offer food for their guests to take away with them. A group of children walked down to the church this morning to drop off our donation.

Thank you to everyone who generously contributed to our food collection. Our donation will help many families and individuals.

We would also like to thank Dan, Lisa and Colette at St Mary’s Church who welcomed us so warmly and explained to the children how our donation would be used.
