Supporting Children in Need!

We have been joining in with the school's spotty-themed fun this week!

For a donation of £1.00, children could come to Nursery dressed in spots, wear pyjamas or just bring a bear!

Some children also brought money in for cakes, or gave an extra donation.

We had one day of fundraising at the start of the week, and another at the end to try and ensure that all of our children could take part . . . 

Thank you so much for all of your donations - we will now be able to add £39.50 to 
the school total.

Well done everyone!

Poppies For Remembrance

We have been finding out about the reasons why many people wear a poppy at this time of year.

The following animation shows war as experienced by the animal inhabitants of a WW1 battlefield . . .

After watching and talking about what was seen, we worked together to create some collaborative poppy 
sun catchers . .

As we have been talking about the night sky recently, we thought this would be a good choice for our next Julia Donaldson book . . .

Firework Finale!

We were pleased to hear that the children all enjoyed a safe and happy Bonfire Night.

Here are just a few of their recollections . . . 

Pip - "My cousins came. I weared my earmuffs because they were too loud (the fireworks). I didn't have fireworks at my house - at granny and grandpa's house."

Beau - "They were too loud so I covered my ears."

Theo M R - "I liked the loud ones!"

Serenna - "I saw some pink ones. Poppy was there and Bella was there. I used Poppy's earmuffs so I can't hear them cause they were too noisy!" 

We have had lots of fun creating our display!

We had a rhyme about 
'Five Little Rockets' 
 Then we used silver or gold paint to carefully count and print five stars in the night sky! 
We would love to hear about your Bonfire Night celebrations.
 Post us a comment and let us know!

Sparkler Safety!

This week we have been finding out how to keep safe on Bonfire Night.

You should NEVER give sparklers to children UNDER FIVE.

But for those children that are five and over, ensure that they wear gloves and when finished, put the sparkler in a bucket of water.

If having your own bonfire or visiting one with family and friends, remind everyone to stand well back and children should be supervised at all times.

We hope that you all enjoy a SAFE and happy Bonfire Night!
