Morpeth All Saints Church of England Aided First School

Week Beginning 30th January

This week we have been learning our letter sound 'p'. On Friday everyone was given a super Mrs Jennings gold star award for reading our very first word by pushing letter sounds together. Well done everyone!

Following the interests of three children, we made tomato soup and used a garlic crusher for the first time. The school was filled with garlic aromas on Tuesday!

We have been learning about Chinese New Year. The children found out that if they were older children, they were born in the year of the dragon and if they were younger children they were born in the year of the snake. We re-enacted the story of the twelve animals crossing the river and we also made dragon puppets.  In the water tray we explored noodles with chopsticks and tweezers.

We extended our interest in Space by talking about and making jet packs.

We made a volcano erupt in the classroom and popped popcorn

We hope that Freya and Jake's parents enjoyed their Stay and Play session. If anyone has not signed up yet and would like to, our calendar of available dates is on the Parents Notice board.Thank you to all the parents who attended the Parent's Phonics Workshop this week. I hope this helps to support your child at home alongside Nursery.

Next week we will be talking about E Safety within Nursery. This will be approached through stories and discussions. Please chat to your child at home about the importance of staying safe on the internet.
