Good afternoon everyone,
We hope that you are all ok and enjoyed the lovely weather that we had over half-term. It was good to return to nursery today and welcome back the children who have been attending throughout lockdown and the friends who joined them today. We are all waiting for the Prime Minister’s announcement later this evening to hear the plan for moving the country out of lockdown. We are very much hoping that schools will be fully open soon and all our children will return.
This half term we are focusing on our planet and how we need to take care of it. It is never too early to teach children the importance of looking after the environment, caring for living things, conserving energy, recycling and picking up litter.
We started the day with a story “Hello, Mr World” by Michael Foreman. In this beautifully illustrated book Mr World doesn’t feel well. The book explores the themes of climate change and pollution. It shows children how wonderful the world is and how they can help to take care of it. You can listen to Shazna reading the book below.
After the story children learnt about all the beautiful places on earth, mountains, lakes, rivers, forests, deserts and all the animals and plants that can be found there. They talked about the small things they can start doing now to help save our planet.
In red class they planted seeds to grow their own herbs, whilst first floor class talked about sustainable travel and how the children travel to nursery. Ground floor class drew beautiful pictures of our planet.
At home you can listen to the story and try some of the activities on the home learning sheet below.
There is also a poem that parents may enjoy by Nicolette Sowder and Alison sings Old MacDonald had a farm. We also have pictures friends busy at home.
Have a lovely evening.
