Cohort 1 – Red group, Yellow group and Purple group Acorns 

The Acorns have been continuing their interest in autumn this week. They discovered what type of tree the horse chestnut (conker) comes from and describing the texture of the case it grows in “has spikes, jaggy, silky and soft. The children have been enjoying learning in our nursery garden this week, playing games such as hide and seek and what’s the time Mr Wolf? They have also been looking after our plants by watering them and pulling out the weeds. We had lots of water play outdoors, transporting water in to the mud kitchen to make lovely mud pies and pouring it down the guttering to see it flow.

Cohort 1 – Red group, Yellow group and Purple group Seedlings

The Seedlings have been enjoying the story “The Colour Monster” chosen by one of the children from the red group. This has sparked lots of discussion on feelings and recognition of colours. They have had the opportunity to sort and match coloured objects in to the correct colour jar. The children are becoming more aware that their feelings represent a colour e.g. yellow represent happy, blue represents sad etc. They have been able to identify their own feelings by using “The Colour Monster” feelings chart and adding their own peg picture to it.

Cohort 2 – Blue group, Orange group and Green group Acorns

This week the Acorns have been discussing rules to follow while in the ELC at carpet time.  We are using the schools vision, values and aims to promote being respectful and responsible to others and our environment and being ready to learn by listening and following instructions.  The children have had lots of opportunity this week experimenting with water and paint, while mixing they have been able to recognise primary colours, create new colours to make secondary colours and also discovering shades, opaque and transparency.

Cohort 2 – Blue group, Orange group and Green group Seedlings

The seedlings have been talking about manners this week and learning to sit at the table for snack and lunch and encouraging them to say please and thank you. They have been learning to be independent by clearing their own plates, putting them away and posting their snack name. They enjoyed a walk to the local park to explore the environment and to see the changes it is making as we arrive in to autumn. The children have spoken about having a leaf nursery “we can bring leaves from outside and bring them inside”. When they returned they helped to sort all their findings into categories then stuck them in to their

floor book and spoke about what they found and enjoyed on their walk.

A big warm welcome to all our new starts and their families this week.

Things to remember

September weekend – Friday 18th September – Monday 21st September (ELC Closed)

We will be setting up a talking corner on the right hand side of the gate. If anyone wants to speak to a member of staff we will come out and see you. Just be mindful if a parent is in the space to keep socially distanced or wait.

Can we ask if you could name your children’s clothing’s, coats, wellies etc. This will help us having less lost property.

As from the 22nd September all children will be provided with a hot meal from the school kitchen.
