Nursery have been on an excited visit to our local farm- Spitalfields farm. The children have been learning all about Easter and in particular looking at the new animals that are born during Spring. Before the visit children watched videos about the farm and even had a go at collaging a range of farm animals. The children and parents visited the farm over three days and had an opportunity to see what animals lived on the farm, who looked after them and what sounds or noise they made.
This is some of the things the children had to say:
‘Some animals were hiding. We had to look for them.’- Sulaiman
‘I saw the chickens and ducks. They was in their houses going ‘cluck cluck’. – Zaynab H
‘The animals were very small and we had to make sure we didn’t scare them. We got to touch them.’- Musa
When the children returned, they shared their photos with their friends and talked about their time on the farm. We also had an opportunity to make animal puppets, decorate Easter eggs, paint and collage flowers and animals, play with the small world farm and we even learnt about the Easter story and its link to Spring and new beginnings.
A new year and a new start for our new Nursery cohort. We have had lots of fun singing different nursery rhymes and learning about different stories. Our favourite song to sing was ‘5 little monkeys jumping on the bed’ and our favourite story was ‘The 3 Billy Goats Gruff’.
We enjoyed acting out our favourite stories, making props and puppets as well as retelling parts of the story we were familiar with.
Here are some of the things we have enjoyed this half term:
‘ I like Billy goats because they are so hungry they want to eat.’- Liyanah
‘I love being monkey. I get to jump and fall down and then we count.’- Nusaibah
‘I love being teacher and I read story to the children and we throw the bad troll in the water with a splash!’- Alayna
‘I made a big bad troll and it got lots of colours on it.’- Sulaiman
A very warm welcome to the children who have started Nursery at Osmani Primary School in the past few weeks! We are so happy to have you here. The children have been having a great time meeting their new friends and getting to know the adults in nursery.
We have been reading some traditional stories during our Literacy time. The children loved pretending to be Daddy Bear for the ‘Goldilocks’ story and making their angriest faces. They also loved shouting ‘Who’s that trip trapping over my bridge?’ for the ‘Three Billy Goats Gruff’ story. We are learning respect each others’ rights to learn and play together.
A big thank you to all the parents for all your support in helping your children settle in!
