Nursery Bulletin w/c 11th February

Posted on Updated on

Nursery

Week Commencing 11th February

Topic

After talking about some of the people who help us last week such as our nannies, drivers, cleaners and vets, this week we will be moving on to look at how different children live around the world. Are their homes the same as ours? What is the same and what is different? Do we have more or less things than they have? Perhaps most importantly, we will be talking about what we are grateful for in our lives and what we can do to look after others as well.

We are also looking at the different continents in the world and where Bahrain is located. If you would like to have some fun at home, this seven continents song has lots of great information in it and we love singing along!

 

literacy

We are continuing our work on rhyming pairs in stories and as well as trying to make our own rhyming pairs and strings. If you want to play along at home, try and out the game in the video… and maybe you can put together a bag of rhyming objects to match 🙂

 

maths

We are continuing to sequence numerals, putting them in the right order. It isn’t easy when you’re 3 and 4 so we need lots of practice! You can have a go at home with this caterpillar sequencing game

arabic1

In Arabic we will be learning about:

  • Topic: Jungle Animals (Elephant).
  • Read and colour the letter Fa’a (ف).
  • Pronounce at least 3 words that contain the letter.
  • Colour: Pink

Story: قصة (الفيل).

21st and 22nd February – Half term

25th February – 1st March: Book Week

Book Week will start on Sunday 25th of February and run throughout the week. We will have lots of fun activities planned including asking the children to bring in their favourite story to read aloud to their friends. In addition, a year 6 class will join us one day to read some books together. We will also be asking for parent volunteers to come and read with their child’s class during the week.

On Thursday 1st of March the whole school will have Book Character Day. Your child should come to school dressed up as their favourite book character and bring the book too for sharing if possible. The best costumes are always the homemade ones that the children have made with you. They have that special personal touch 🙂

11th March – 22nd March: We will be holding our Parent Teacher Meetings at the end of each day during these 2 weeks. A little nearer to the time we will open up the booking system so that you can select your preferred available slots.

On Thursday 22nd March it is Arabic Mothers Day and we will be inviting all our mums into our classes at the end of the day. We are giving you lots of notice as we would love it if all mums can come. We will be inviting you to join us from 11:30 and you will be doing a little activity with your child to celebrate your special day 🙂

Reception

Week Commencing 4th February

literacy

This week we will be learning the ee sound as in seed and heel.  Our friend Geraldine the Giraffe is helping out as usual:

along with Mr Thorne:

If the children would like to each bring a small ee object (labelled with their name if they want it back) the teachers would love to see them.

The teachers would love everyone to bring in fruit which contains seeds for healthy snack on Sunday 4th (e.g. grapes, apples, tomatoes …) as each class is going to plant their seeds and watch them germinate and grow.

Blending practice is available at the Dinosaur Egg Game at http://www.ictgames.com/dinosaurEggs_phonics/ on level 7 which focuses on the ee sound.

The tricky word we will be learning is do.

In Maths we will be learning about sequencing and ordering.  Practical activities will help the children to order objects by size, and weight and order numbers too.

Sunday 11th February R1, R2, R3, R4 & R5

Monday 12th February R6, R7, R8 & R9.

The children will need to wear their PE kit (and a coat depending on the weather). We will be having a picnic lunch so this should be packed in disposable containers in a plastic or paper bag, clearly marked with the child’s name and class. This is also one of the few occasions when we would like the children to bring a single use drinks containers.

Mini-beast Parade

The children will need to dress up as a mini-beast for our mini-beast day on February 15th.  The day will include a parade for the parents with some mini-beast action songs at 8.30am and then a carousel of fun activities for the children, to round off their learning linked to mini-beasts.

Book Bags  The children have been reminded that their book bags should only have books, work & letters in them as the books need to be looked after. Hats, spare clothes, water bottles, lunch boxes etc should never be put in the Book Bags.

Year 2 Bulletin

For week commencing Sunday, 4th February

Reminders

Recycling project – after half term the children will carry out a recycling project. They will need some recycled materials from home. We would love it if you could start collecting some milk bottle tops, kitchen roll inners, cereal boxes, other smaller tubs and lids, to bring in after the half term break.


literacy

The children will watch a short wordless video at the beginning of the week. The remainder of the week’s lessons will be spent exploring the little girl character in the story and the adventure she takes. Visual literacy is a very effective way of helping children to write stories. They begin to comprehend the story by using only the animation and create the rest of the story ideas on their own.


maths
Our shape unit continues. The children will experiment with shape patterns and discover lines of symmetry in 2d shapes. By the end of the week, the children will have learned the names of many common 3d shapes as well as their characteristics: vertices, edges and faces.

Practise the vocabulary at home: sides, edges, faces, vertices. How many 3d shapes can you name? Can you find any in your house? Carry out a shape hunt!


topic

The next part of our Topic unit teaches us about living and non-living things. The children will establish how we can tell if something is living e.g. Moving, breathing, growing etc. The children will move on to where the living things live. We will introduce the term ‘habitat’ and discuss the different habitats they already know. To begin with, our learning will focus on the type of habitat we live in i.e. the desert.

We will also talk about where we live and how to look after the world that we live in.

We are continuing to work on rhyming pairs. A lovely book to read together is Goodnight Moon. You can then talk about the rhyming pairs in the story and see if you can think of anymore together 🙂

DSC_4787Nursery Messy Day

“Play is the highest form of research.”

Albert Einstein

Today was ‘Messy Day’ in Nursery and the day definitely lived up to its name! The curious children thoroughly enjoyed digging their little hands into a variety of goopy, slimy, gritty, squishy and bumpy textures. Sensory play is an important part of learning for young children as it helps to develop a multitude of skills, and it is loads of fun too!

Here are some pictures from our fun filled morning.

Year 2 – Trip to Peninsula Farms

This week, as part of their topic on ‘Plants’,  children in Year 2 went on their educational visit to a farm, but not an ordinary farm.  They visited the Peninsula Farms to see the very latest technology in hydroponic farming. The children explored the climate-controlled tunnels and saw lettuces, tomatoes and herbs at various stages of growth – from seed to seedling to fully grown.

During their visit, children were amazed to learn that it is possible to grow vegetables without soil.

Parent Passes

I was delighted to be able to greet so many parents and children at the school gates in the morning and at the end of the school day last Thursday. Many thanks to all the parents and carers who displayed their school-passes naturally, as part of their daily routine, when entering the school.  Although we are very familiar with most of our parents’ and carers’ faces, we strongly feel that the rule has to be consistent and applied throughout the entire BSB community. It is, after all, to ensure the safety and security of all our students at the school.

Please, remember to bring your parent pass and have it on display at all times; keeping your children safe while at school is our top priority.

Many thanks for your cooperation!

Congratulations to all our ‘Super Stars’ this week!
