This half term children had a great opportunity to be part of Spitalfield’s Music Project. Parents were invited to come along and join in with the fun with their children. It was a fun and engaging experience for parents, children and staff. Each week’s session was a journey out into the sea- with the help of our special treasure map to guide us.

During our journey, we visited several Islands where we encountered different adventures each time. Each Island consisted of a unique song and an activity e.g. we made a rocket in the rocket Island whilst singing ‘Zoom , Zoom, Zoom We’re Going to the Moon’.

Celebration in Nursery

 

This half term our topic is ‘Celebration’. In Nursery, we read the story of Rama and Sita and the children participated in taking roles of different characters, using character masks and props to act out the story as a whole class.

We also made Diva lamps using clay. This allowed children to explore clay and manipulate the material for a desired outcome. We discussed the texture of clay of how it felt and looked and talked about changes over time, thinking about what it will look like and feel like once it is dried. It was a fantastic learning experience as all children were engaged and stimulated across the Nursery.

Welcome to Nursery

Starting school is a very big step and can be daunting for some children. However, this year at Osmani Nursery, we want to say a massive WELL DONE to all the children for settling in so well.

As part of our settling in period we have been making unique mobiles of ‘All About Me’ for every child. These mobiles consists of  things that are special to them.

During our Literacy sessions in Nursery, we have been reading and acting out the story of  The Three Billy Goats Gruff. The children really enjoyed the story especially the goats crossing over the troll’s bridge, during free flow they built a bridge for the goats to cross. Through this activity, we are pleased to say that children were turn taking, actively engaged and worked as a team.
