Shwmae!

For Nursery and Reception today, we found out what it means to be a friend. We played some circle time games encouraging us to find new, old, or different friends to work with.

We also had fun shouting SHWMAE! and making hats to show how proud we are.

Reception challenged themselves to say ‘Shwmae’ as many times as they could in 20 seconds, and played the ‘Shwmae’ game.

Messy Monday.

Reception and Nursery have met again! Not to get up to any trouble but to complete activities all about ‘Stickman’.

We have listened to the story, so set to work making ‘Stickmen’ out of sticklebricks, sticks and even created some rainbow art..

Take a look at our pictures!

Learning About Shapes.

The nursery children have been really busy learning all about 2D shapes. They looked for shapes hidden in the sand and in shaving foam, and they cut shapes out of playdough. They participated in a range of different shape activities and looked for different shapes in the Lego. They printed with shapes to make a colourful picture to go on our classroom display and they developed their IT skills by completing an activity on the interactive whiteboard and iPads. Gwaith da nursery! Da iawn!

We’re Going On A Bear Hunt!

The nursery children teamed up with reception to go on a bear hunt. They looked all around the school yard for clues. They looked on the climbing frame, the stage, in the little houses and in the construction area, and there he was hiding up a tree! You found him! Da iawn pawb! To celebrate finding him, we made some delicious bear biscuits. Yummy!

Tap, Tap, Tap!

The Nursery children had a great time today. To develop their hand eye coordination and fine motor skills, they hammered golf tees into a melon! They were very careful and put their safety googles on first. What fun!

Speaking and Listening.

The nursery children have been busy this morning taking part in a range of activities to help develop their speaking and listening  skills. They brought a selection of items from home to discuss in ‘Show and Tell’. They played a variety of games, which involved listening carefully and following instructions. They played ‘Copy Me’ with the musical instruments and after all these activities, they still found time to practise writing their names on the light boxes. What a busy morning!
