Happy Summer to all our F1 children!! We have had a fantastic year with you and we wish you lots of luck if you are moving on to

Foundation 2. 

We look forward to welcoming some of you back in September! xx

 

 

The children have made a large collage poppy out of smaller poppies to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the First World War. This is to help support Merseyside Police to remember the Police Officers that were soldiers who lost their lives during the war. 

Foundation 1’s poppy is taking pride of place at St Nicholas' Church around the 8th November. 

We would like to say a big ‘Well Done’ and ‘Thank You’ to all the children and parents of Foundation 1 for making our cake sale really successful. We managed to raise over £400. 

  

 

 

The children have been thoroughly enjoying our ‘Under the Sea’ and ‘Holidays’ topic. 

  

 

The children have enjoyed learning an African Dance routine. The children have been listening carefully to the music changing beat to know when to change their dance move.

What great dancers you all are!

   

 

Welcome to our new families for September 2018.  We hope that you enjoyed your induction evening.  Mr Cassidy's presentation is below.

 

Well done to all the children in Foundation 1 who entered our decorate an egg competition.

We think they are all egg-cellent!

   

The children in Foundation 1 have been busy creating ‘Trolls’ out of clay.  

We called one of our trolls, ‘ Debbie the Ballet Dancing Troll.’

The children made the trolls so they could be taken to the local library to enter this summers ‘Wirral Troll Trail.’

Our St George’s Trolls will be on display in Wallasey Village Library.

We had an exciting visit from the author of the sort ‘The Colourful Chameleon,’ Leonie Roberts. 

She read us her story which we thought was really really funny. We enjoyed listening to all the rhyming words. We then had a big art day to explore using a variety of techniques and colours to create a large scale Colourful Chameleon. 

  

  

  

We we had a very special visitor in Nursery today. Mike the Lollipop man came to talk about his important job of keeping everyone safe when they are crossing the road. 

It was also Mikes birthday so we presented him with a box of chocolates, a balloon and a card 

  

We had a special visit from Mrs McCarthy who works in the office at St George’s Primary School. She told us all about her jobs she does and how she helps the children. She also read us a story.

 

We are enjoying learning outside and looking for the early signs of spring.

We have been mark making outside using paint brushes and flour.

What messy fun we had!

We like learning in the mud kitchen!

We had great fun with all our friends celebrating World Book Day. Together we shared our favourite stories and had lots of fun.

Well Done Foundation 1, you all looked amazing!

This half term we will be learning all about people who help us and Easter. We will also be looking at the authors Julia Donaldson and David McKee and focusing on the artist Claude Monet. 

The children have been looking after a hamster called Will.I.Ham. They have been observing him in his cage and have watched him roll around the classroom in his exercise ball on a daily basis. 

 

 

We have had great fun exploring different nursery rhymes.

"Introducing children to a variety of nursery rhymes can help them understand and learn about different sounds. This is animportant part of developing those early literacy skills."

We have been looking at Humpty Dumpty, How much is that doggy in the window and Sing a song of six pence.

Today we have made some strawberry crumble pies to explore the different tastes and textures. We thought our pies were tasty!

             


 

 

Next half term we will be exploring our 'Rhyme Time' topic and taking part in lots of rhyming activities. 

Well done all Foundation 1 children on performing an amazing first nativity play!

We hope you all have a lovely christmas!

We enjoyed walking to the local postbox in Wallasey Village to post our special cards home. We can't wait for them to arrive!!

 

We have been studying the artist 'Jackson Pollock.' He uses splashes and squirts to create his pictures. This helps us to develop our gross motor skills and our shoulder joints to help support our early writing.

We have been writing some shopping lists in our classroom. We then took our shopping lists to The Co-Op to buy our food for the pumkin soup making. We looked at all the different numbers in the shop and spoke to the cashier behind the till to see how much money we had to pay. We had great fun!

We have been ordering numbers and using pegs to help us match the numeral to quantity. This is also helping our fine motor skills to develop.

 

We have been exploring Autumnal vegatables. We have been looking what they smell like, what they feel like and we are going to be making pumpkin soup to see what it tastes like.

We have enjoyed exploring our outdoor area.

We have been making lots of new freiends and we are enjoying having our snack together so we can talk about what we like and what we dont like. We are also having our lunch at school. We like to choose our own lunches each morning.

We have been exploring our faces. We have been making playdough faces and mixing different colours to paint our faces. We are happy coming to our new school!

A very warm welcome to all our F1 Nursery children! 

We are so excited to meet you and can't wait to get to know you and your families over the year!
