We can't believe it's the end of our second week and from next Tuesday the children will be staying for full days.  Many of them will find these long days so expect some very tired little ones next week.  Have a great weekend and see you all on Monday.

As we have many parents new to school who may not know where to turn for advice regarding internet safety for their little ones, can I just introduce you to this site which has some excellent information for parents.

https://www.internetmatters.org

We also have a separate school page, dealing with internet safety, which can be reached by clicking the link at the top of the Nursery Class page. 

Hope everyone's having a great weekend and see you all on Monday.

Its the end of the first week in Nursery and the children have all settled wonderfully.  They are a credit to their parents and are all happy, friendly, confident little people who have made us smile all week.  We have photographs around the classroom showing the children working in their new class but will not be able to post any photos on the web site until all consent forms are completed and returned.  Thanks for your support at this exciting time.

Well the classroom is all ready.  All it needs now is children!  Looking forward to tomorrow and seeing you all on your very first day in Nursery at St Paul's CE Primary School. 

 

20th July 2017

The last day of the school year.  In our school prize giving the Nursery Achievement Award was presented to Leighton.  His hard work and enthusiasm for learning makes him a deserving recipient of this special award. The Nursery Progress Award went to Lewis.  He has become a real team player since joining St Paul's and shows genuine care and concern for all his class mates.  Well done to both boys.  We are very proud of you and indeed all the Nursery children who have been wonderful this year.  We wish you all the very best as you move into Reception and look forward to seeing you all bloom and flourish to your very best potential.  Have a lovely summer and keep safe and well.  We are going to miss you all very much!

The last week of the school year is here and we started it in style with the Research and Writing Prizes Assembly.  A big well done to Yasha who received a £5.00 book token.  In Nursery we don't have research logs so Yasha's award was for the enthusiasm and effort he has put into his learning over the last half term.  Our Writers Prize went to Johanna who has developed her pencil control enormously and is now writing her name and other sounds beautifully with all letters correctly formed.  Well done both of you and have a super last week in our Nursery.

 

30th June 2017

This week the children have been looking at the story "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" by Tony Ross which is a retelling of Aesop's famous fable.  Today Ethan got a certificate for his own super comprehension of the story. He understands it teaches us not to tell lies and and how people who do aren't always believed even when they tell the truth.   Alia also received a certificate for her subtraction skills this week.  She has worked really hard and understands the difference between taking away and adding amounts together.  Well done guys!

 

23rd June 2017

Well done to Johanna and John for their certificates today.  Johanna has made wonderful progress with her phonic work this week and John has enjoyed his Reception transition visits enormously.  It was lovely to see them both looking so pleased in assembly and they both deserved the recognition for their hard work.  This week Nursery have been thinking of words that describe things that are great including  'wonderful', 'fabulous', 'brilliant' and 'fantastic'. All these words can certainly describe Johanna and John!

 

16th June 2017

Certficates to Amelia and Allen today.  Amelia has been learning one more and one less than numbers all the way up to 20 and her hard work deserves to be recognised.  Allen has been practising his writing skills this week and has made super progress with both his letter formation and his phonic skills, segmenting words to hear and write the sounds in them.  Well done to both of them. 

Today the whole school is celebrating Bee Day to raise money for the victims of the recent terrorist attacks in Manchester and London.  A big thank you to all the parents and carers who have supported this fund raising day and if you would like to see some photographs please visit the Nursery Gallery.

 

9th June 2017

Welcome back at the end of the first week of the final half term.  This week the children have read  "What's the Time, Grandma Wolf?" by Ken Brown and we have been considering the many words used to describe the animals in the story.  We have learnt words such as "bold", "reckless", "shy" and "cheeky" and  discussed the characteristics of these adjectives.  The chiildren have all listened and recalled information leant this week and the certificates today were awarded to Lewis and Yasha for their listening skills.  Both boys have focussed really carefully over the week and have been able to apply the things they have learnt in their independent play.   All the children have been super and interested to listen and learn. See if your child can tell you what a bramble is now? (They may need a slight prompt that it was the filling in Little Red Riding Hood's pie!)                      

Have a lovely weekend everyone and see you all next week.

Maja is the proud recipient of the Summer 1 term Research Award.  We have been looking at plants and growing recently and Maja brought in some plants from a different country to share with the class.  As we considered the sea and sea animals, she also shared photographs of jellyfish and starfish she had seen on a recent family trip to the beach.  She also collected shells and crab claws to show her friends in class. Well done Maja.  It's lovely to see you making such strong links in your learning.

Esmee received the Summer 1 term Writers Award.  She is writing simple words independently now and forming her letters beautifully too.  Esmee always listens carefully and tries her very best and we are all enormously proud of her.

All the children have made superb progress over the past 6 weeks.  They are a credit to themselves and their families and all deserve a well earned break.  Have a lovely half term everyone and we look forward to seeing you all back, safe and rested, on June 5th.

Today was the turn of Simon and Luna to receive certificates to celebrate their successes. This week  we have been reading "The Fish Who Could Wish"  and finding out about all the things he wished for.  Luna painted a beautiful picture of a Furby after thinking about what she would wish for if she had a magic wish too. Simon has been trying hard to make sure he follows class rules and had his certificate for his super behaviour.  Well done to both of them.

 

12th May 2017

Congratulations to Esmee and Lochlan for their certificates in our Good News assembly this morning.  Esmee received hers for her wonderful picture of a beanstalk and Lochlan's was for his effort in learning to count backwards from 20 to 1.  Both of you deserved this special recognition for all your hard work.  Well done guys!

 

11th May 2017

We have been reading Jack and the Beanstalk this week and thinking about what we would like to find if we climbed up a magic beanstalk.  Suggestions have been princesses, dinosaurs and gold! What would you like to find?

 

 

24th March 2017

After all the writing produced by the Superheroes and Princesses in Nursery this week, our Good News certificate was awarded to the whole of Nursery for their wonderful work.  Well done everybody and have a lovely weekend.

To really inspire the children we are going to be thinking about Superheroes and princesses.

To start the week with a bang, the children are invited to wear fancy dress and come to school “in character” on Monday 20th March as a superhero or princess.

We’re looking forward to a busy, fun-filled week and seeing all your fabulous costumes.
