The nursery children visited their new blank canvas classroom today. As part of our transition back to our new learning space we explored the empty space, spoke about our favourite things we need to include and our behaviour and learning expectations next week. The children were super excited to share how they feel with each other. We are so excited for what our new learning space has to offer our children in early years at Greentop!
We are delighted to inform parents that from Monday 12th March, nursery sessions will once again be held in the new nursery renamed ‘The Lilies’. Miss Carter and her team are so excited to be able to get into this new learning space.
A super day was had by all celebrating world book day by dressing up and enjoying our favourite stories and exploring our favourite characters. A massive well done to Naomi for winning best dressed! The nursery staff were in awe of her home made costume and of her knowledge of many stories including a ladybird character. The children had lots of fun talking about their costumes and stories and had lots of book fun at maths time! In the morning the children enjoyed a big bedtime story read where they collected cushions and blankets to lay and listen to their favourite stories brought in from home. In the afternoon the children watched their favourite class text ‘the train ride ‘ and took part in one of their first assemblies. We finished off the day creating character selfies and watching Paddington Bear for our funky Friday!
Victoria, Scarlett and Esme worked together throughout the week showing a sustained interest in shape. The girls discussed what they noticed, naming and exploring the 2D shapes. The girls went on to draw the shapes naming them to show their understanding.
This week in nursery we turned our classroom into a train creation station. The children have been busy designing and making their 2D and 3D trains using box modelling , construction and art. The children were challenged to use their knowledge of art and maths. Here are just a few fantastic examples !
Miss Smith brought and her beautiful baby daughter Nyah came to meet the nursery staff and children this week. We were very excited to talk to her and we had lots of questions. The nursery children sang Nyah to sleep with ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ We wish Miss Smith the very best as she enjoys her first days of Motherhood and we hope to see her very soon.
Amber and Frankie were inspired by our very own builders from the nursery extension build. “We are building the new Green Top! ” (Nursery) Frankie shared as they both took their tools to the wood to create their model . We are all very excited about the weeks ahead as we move into our beautiful new classroom.
As you will all know, the Nursery at Green Top is being redeveloped to accommodate more children. We would like to mark this occasion by requesting that copies of photographs that you have of the Green Top Nursery since its opening in the 1980s, are brought into school to create a memory wall. These might be pictures of you, your children learning and playing or staff at the time or the building itself.
We will be re-opening the Nursery with a garden party, inviting past teachers, children and parents to join us.
Thanks in advance, photographs can be handed into the school office.
