This weekend is Remembrance Sunday and in Nursery we have been reflecting on what that means when you are three. We took part in the school's Remembrance Service today in the playground and I must say that your children were silent and respectful. They may not fully understand the act Remembrance and I don't think at three years that they fully should, but they knew today was an important time for us to be thankful and think of others.
We have made a poppy wreath with our hands that will be taken to the Fallowfield War Memorial tonight.
When you have a child you dream of what they may become and have endless dreams and hopes for their futures. Every soldier that has given their life serving our country had a parent who would have had dreams and hopes for a future that they sadly did not get to live.
They gave their today so our children could have their tomorrow.
Enjoy your weekend with your lovely children.
It has been a lovely first week back at school and the children will probably be very tired tonight after what has been an action packed week.
We now have a Garage Role Play outside, complete with a broken bike and real tools! The children have really enjoyed themselves, booking in vehicles, writing receipts and fixing things that are broken. However, I'm sorry to say that the bike is still missing a wheel and so we'll have to try again next week.
Although the weather has changed this week it hasn't stopped us from celebrating being back at school, with a traditional English Tea. We made scones today, complete with strawberry jam and real dairy cream.
Apologies if your child came home covered in jam. They were quite messy to eat but delicious.
Happy Friday! Have a wonderful weekend.
We can't quite believe that the first half term is over. Where has that time gone?
Your children have all now settled in and we are beginning to see their little personalities shining through. We never take for granted the important role that we are playing in the lives of your children and we are building firm foundations for a bright future. By watching and imitating others, young children learn how to interact socially. They learn acceptable and unacceptable kinds of behaviour. The examples set by adults, older siblings and children are the most powerful influences shaping a child's behaviour and personality.
I just wanted to share an example of that happening today in class.
Bailey gathered the children around him and began to read a book. I asked him what he was doing and he said 'I'm being you, the teacher'. I watched him pretend to be me and it was amazing to see how he used the language I used, he even had my mannerisms and accent! It was a lovely reminder of how much of an influence the adults in Early Years are having on the children. What lucky people we are to be in a position to do this.
