Thank you and well done to every one of our Nursery families, for all your great work so far, keep it up! I have added some slideshows of the photos sent to me over the last two weeks, for you to enjoy.
This week we will be thinking about "Birds in Winter" Do you know any birds names? Do you know what birds look like? What do they eat? Where do they live? In the winter birds may find it difficult to find their own food and I'm sure they will love eating the bird food you will make and put out for them.
Have a look at what we were up to last week...
Puffy paint, pattern making, threading, baking, pairs game and
I am also delighted to see so many boys and girls having fun in the snow!

Two Little Dicky Birds
Can you do the actions? In Nursery we would change the names of the dicky birds,
why not say the rhyme using your name and Mum/Dad/brother/sister/Granny/Granda/etc
We are learning to count with accuracy and recognise the numerals 1-5. Select game - Numbers up to 5 and practice your accurate counting to 5. If you can do this move on to numbers up to 10 and numbers up to 15.
Robin's Winter Song
Enjoy this beautiful story about robin and his first winter. Robin is learning all about the the changes that happen and he even makes new friends as he explores.
Goodbye for now boys and girls! I hope you enjoy making your bird food and enjoy watching the birds coming to feed. I wonder will a robin come to eat it?
I look forward to seeing a photo of you with your bird food this week.
Keep up the great work!

Edwards Nursery Unit September 2020
Look at us!
Going out on the bikes, trikes, scooters and wheeled vehicles will develop our leg muscles and strengthen our bones. We are improving our stamina, co-ordination and balance. We are having lots of fun while we do this important work!
October/ November 2020
Our topic is Dear Zoo
Can you join in, saying the words?
We have been counting to 5 in Nursery. We enjoy singing counting songs and our new favourite is "Alice the Camel has 5 Humps" You can practise counting at home too.
Have you ever wondered why we do not focus on writing when your child embarks on their Nursery year?
Look at the differences between a typical younger child's hand (left) and an older child's hand (right). Their hands (and brains) are still developing and are not fully formed. So what should they be doing to support this? PLAY -playdough, building towers, cutting, gluing, playing outside, digging in sand, sensory play, threading, puzzles, throwing balls etc... All of these things help develop fine motor skills, co-ordinating the small muscles in our hands and fingers with our eyes.
Have a look at us developing our fine motor skills...
We are so busy! There are so many Christmas activities to enjoy in Nursery.
Nursery is the best place to be at this special time of year!
”Our First Nativity”
We have been learning all about the very first Christmas. We have been reading the story and we have been acting it out.
We performed our nativity for everyone online. We worked really hard to learn our songs and lines. I’m sure you will agree that we all look fabulous dressed up and everyone is very proud of us!
