This week the children have been learning about why people wear red poppies and mark the Remembrance Day. We had a special visitor who kindly came into nursery to talk to our children about her experience in the British Navy. The children had an opportunity to try on the Navy outfits, look at the medal and ask questions about what it was like serving in the Navy.
We have also started practicing for our Nursery Christmas Show that will take place on the 14th of December.
Please check out some photographs from this week.
Just a gentle reminder that all donations towards our hampers are greatly appreciated and required at least a few days beforehand so we have time to wrap them 🙂
We’re looking g forward to seeing you all there and raising lots of funds for the Nursery.
This week in the Beech room we have been super busy we have been discussing the safety around fire works and bonfire night ahead of the display on Monday evening. The children were very aware not to touch or go near them as “they are very hot and could burn you”.
We also celebrated Diwali- The Featival Of Light in India, we explored different dancing techniques during our gym session and we also tasted some Korma, Naan Bread and onion bhaji’s for snack there was a mixed reaction between the children if they liked them or not.
We began discussing Remembrance Day and what is about, All of the children created a red hand print which were then put together to creat our very own handmade poppy wreath, Miss Jarvie will be taking our wreaths to display them at a memorial stand for the Remembrance parade held on Sunday the 11th. Next week we will also be hopefully having a visit from a Veteran to show us their medals and tell us a bit about the war.
We hope you all have fantastic weekend and look forward to seeing you all next week.
