Welcome back to all our children especially our new starters. The summer term is a busy one. Please remember that as the weather improves (hopefully) that we would like the children to have:
1. A sun hat 2. A cardigan or light jacket with long sleeves 3. Sun cream applied before they come to nursery.
Thank you for your help
This week the children have been introduced to a larger selection of interactive electronic toys. They have enjoyed learning how to control the toys to move in different directions. We have also explored the Walkie Talkies and BeeBots.
In Nursery we have been thinking about special places over the past few weeks. The children thought about their own special place outside Nursery within our first week. We then talked about a church being a special place of worship last week and this week we have talked about special places at Nursery. The children took photos of each other in their special places on the I Pad and we talked about why that place was special to them.

Carrying on with our pirate theme, today we went on a treasure hunt in the large outdoor area.
We read the treasure map that had been left with Ms Cameron and looked for the places to match the photo clues on the map. We used lots of positional and directional language whilst we were hunting. When we found the treasure we counted it carefully and talked about different ways to make counting easier when we have lots of objects together.
Arghhhh Jim Lad!
Following the interests of the children, we have been making treasure maps, using positional language. We also gave our electronic Beebot directions to move around a special treasure map, using positional language to help. In our outdoor area we have made a pirate ship role play area. Watch this space for more pirate adventures!
This week we have been reading the story of Jesus and The Miraculous Catch of Fish. We listened to the story then we made a boat and acted out the story again. We caught lots of fish with help from Jesus. We even made our own boats and decorated them.
Counting Shiny Scales
Today we have been using the fish from our Rainbow Fish story to help us count shiny scales. We also added shiny scales together from two fish to find the total of scales. Some children were able to find the numeral to match the amount of scales on each fish. Can you count some shiny objects at home? Try and find the numbers to match the objects you have counted.
Summer 1 Week 1
Colour, Colour Everywhere!
This week we have been exploring colour. We have sorted coloured teddy bears and pom poms into the correct coloured pots. Some
children enjoyed mixing coloured paint on the tuff tray and in squishy bags. We also explored mixing shaving foam and food colouring. Then we made lots of coloured hand prints.
We have started to talk about our friends during our R.E time this week. We chatted about what makes a good friend. The children decided they would like to paint and draw pictures of their friends and they discussed why they were great friends. We will continue with this theme over the next few weeks.
Our school is situated in attractive and extensive well maintained grounds in a small housing estate, Lancaster Park, which is north of the town of Morpeth. The school first opened in 1972 and was formerly known as Wansbeck St Aidan Church of England Aided First School until it was renamed in 2001.Read More of the school welcome page
