Starting off a very busy 4 day week celebrating at The Ugly Bug Ball! Thank you for all your effort and support, the children's costumes were UN-BEE-LIEVABLE!

 

 

We had a fantastic time searching for Albert the Tortoise's friends

with Queen Bee and Spider serving tasty snacks of snail shells, crunchy spiders, wiggly worms, chewy butterflies, beetle juice and ants on sticks!

 

   

 

We've been exploring Bee's this week, making honeycomb, collecting pollen and nectar to take back to the hive and strengthening our fine motor skills in the inside and outside provision.

 

   

 

We went out and embraced  the sunshine on an immersive mini-beast hunt with Now > Press > Play!

 

   

 

The Flight of the Bumblebee inspired our PE this week. We moved around the area like bees listening to the piece by Rimsky Korsakov then followed instructions of which colour flower we needed to collect the pollen from. 

 

The Flight of the Bumblebee

 

Continuing our exploration of Bees. We’ve been looking at the nectar collection sequence and some honeycomb then casting our votes after tasting some delicious (but very sticky!) honey!

 

  

Honey Tasting and Voting!

 

Giving Miss Davies instructions to follow to make a delicious Honey Cake using our text of the week, ‘Omar, The Bees, and Me!’  

 

  

Making Honey Cake with Omar, the Bees and Me!

 

Week beginning 29th April 2024

 

Joining the Big Seed Sow to kick start our week in Nursery. 

We've given and followed instructions to plant Mongolian Sunflower Seeds! (apparently they can grow up to 14ft!) We know what we need to do to help them grow and hopefully Mr Sun will come out and help us too!

 

   

 

We found a magical fairy door in our small world, Miss Davies' told us that it leads to a secret garden. We've been using natural and loose parts to create what we think the garden looks like!

 

   

 

We've been exploring the work of different illustrators and artists this term. Last week saw us explore the magical world of Eric Carle and this week we've been creating our own pieces inspired by Georgia O'Keefe's 'Sunflowers'.

 

    

 

We've been learning all about Pollinators this week, starting with the Butterfly. Our literacy this week's been based around The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We talked about how food helps living things grow and how they change over time. We were inspired to write our own story using our Tales Toolkit storyboards before putting our final ideas together. 

 

 

Click the link below to read the story written and illustrated by Nursery

Exploring symmetry through Butterflies and Ladybirds in our Maths. We've been using our colour recognition, counting skills and dice to help us. 

 

  

 

  

 

  

 

"We may be small but we are strong. Wild is the world where we belong. Under the stars this Earth we share- we are the children everywhere! Everything changes, now we know, the smallest of seeds will start to grow. Just as a seed becomes a tree... we are the change that needs to be."

 

 

 

An enchanting Forest School session to end the week as we listened to the story, Through the Fairy Door and heard the important message that "No one is ever too small to make a difference"

 

  

 

  

 

We made our own fairy doors and placed them around our outdoor environment and ate our symmetrical ladybird biscuits together. 

 

 

Week beginning 22nd April 2024

 

Beginning the week continuing our exploration of the Holy Spirit and Pentecost through Branch 5, To the Ends of the Earth. 

 

We made fruit and veg from clay, painted and tied them with red ribbon. We gathered together and presented them as gift at the altar in the Prayer Garden and gave thanks to God.

 

  

We Give Thanks to God!

 

 

We celebrated Earth Day on Monday and made a pledge together on how we could help to look after Earth. 

 

   

 

Showing amounts in our Maths this week, both inside and outside of the classroom as we embrace natural resources in our counting.

 

  

 

  

 

Our new sound. of the week was 'm', we explored the Monster Phonics Town Map looking for all the 'm''s until be become magnificent sound spotters.

 

  

 

 

We've been exploring the wonderful illustrations of American Author, Eric Carle this week in Nursery. We got creative and painted some mini-beasts of our own inspired by his work.

 

  

 

Team work makes the dream work and we've been working in pairs to improve our hand-eye coordination & throwing and catching skills in PE.

 

  

 

If there was an ever a perfect week for Miss Davies to celebrate, it would be this one, Wales Outdoor Learning WeekWe went on a bug hunt, We were gonna find some big ones! We weren't scared!

 

We used our bug magnifying glasses to spot mini-beasts in our Forest School area and collected natural resources in readiness to build our Bug Motel as we start to explore Mini-beast Habitats!

 

 

Wales Outdoor Learning Week 2024  

 

REMINDER: YOUR LITTER BUG HOMEWORK TASK IS DUE IN ON MONDAY 29TH APRIL 2024

(This task can be found on the Home Learning page)

Week beginning 15th April 2024

 

A week full of delicious produce! We've been applying our skills for cutting, slicing, peeling, stirring boiling and steaming ready for tasting all the fruit and vegetables from our class books, Oliver's Vegetables and Oliver's Fruit Salad. 

 

"Carrots!" Said Grandpa, "Just the thing for Monday lunch!"

 

 

 

Oliver took a long time making up his mind on Tuesday. "Those crinkly leaves are pretty, are there potatoes here?" "Spinach!" said Grandpa.

 

 

 

On Wednesday Oliver got up early! "Potatoes are very important! They must have big leaves" he said "That's rhubarb!" said Grandpa. They had rhubarb pie that evening. 

 

   

 

It rained on Thursday. Oliver said "I've found slugs and snails, are they eating my potatoes?' Grandpa shook his head. "That's cabbage!"

 

 

On Friday, Oliver was sure that he had found the potatoes. When he pulled at the leaves, up came some beetroot.

 

   

 

On Saturday, Oliver played football. The ball landed in a tangle of sticks and leaves, "Peas!" He said, Oliver had 3 helpings that evening.

 

   

 

Oliver rushed into the garden on Sunday, "HERE THEY ARE!"

"Can we have chips now?" Oliver asked.

 

  

 

 

We've been busy counting the vegetables in Grandpa's Garden,

 

 

 

Exploring our new sound of the week, 'n',

 

 

 

and finding out if vegetables grow above or underground, making healthy choices for our lunch and sorting healthy and unhealthy foods.

 

   

 

To end the week, we took our homemade chips and fruit salad down to Forest School and had a picnic at the log circle. We listened to the story, Albert and the Wind and set out to help Albert find and thank the mini-beasts in our Forest School.

 

                    

    Picnic at Forest School      Albert and the Wind

Week beginning 8th April 2024

 

What a lovely first week officially full-time all together in Nursery!

 

Starting the week exploring our new theme, Let's Explore Summer: Roots Shoot and Welly Boots, this half term. We've been sharing ideas about fruit and vegetables, how they grow, where they grow and what we use them for. We had letter from Mr McGregor (he warned us about Peter the Pesky Rabbit) and read the story about his grandson Oliver who likes visiting his vegetable patch!

 

  

 

Ordering the days of the week, making patterns and exploring more and less after collecting data to put in a bar chart for our numeracy this week. Want to carry on practicing the Days of the Week at home? We've been learning with the help of Early Years Emily!

 

  

 

Our sound of the week this week is: 

 

 

Izzy, Wizzy, Let's get busy! We've been making spells with Tricky Witch in our Monster Phonics sessions explore the 'i' sound and collecting insects in our continuous provision.

 

  

 

  

 

   We’ve spent lots of time practising and strengthening our pre-writing and fine motor skills this week, please could you spend some time drawing, scribbling, mark making at home and practice using some scissors so that children become more confident in the independent provision areas.

 

    

 

As we explore the next Branch (5) of Jesus' life, to the Ends of the Earth, we walked with Jesus on the Road to Emmaus and listened to the story of his Ascension back to His Father, although we can not see Him, we still feel Him around us in the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is always around us!

 

   

 

 

Exploring the artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo and his pieces made of fruit and vegetables as part of our new theme. We chose, coloured and cut our own vegetables to make our own vegetables heads.

 

  

 

We loved being able to get outside for a full Forest School session now that the sun is finally starting to put his hat on and come out to play. We listened to the story of Farmer Duck and explored the area looking for signs of Spring. Please can you make sure your child has welly boots in school every day as we always try to seize the moment and go outside as much as we can but the grounds are still quite wet and muddy.

 

 

 

   

Week beginning 18th March 2024

 

To start our Holy Week celebrations, we enjoyed joining Reception to perform our a collective worship for our parents at the start of the week. We retold the story of Palm Sunday and asked our congregation to "Take time to remember Jesus, and His Journey at this time of year". Thank you so much for taking the time to join us!

 

 

We continued our Journey through Holy Week, by exploring the Eucharist in Nursery. We heard the story of The Last Supper and how Jesus shared the bread and wine amongst his disciples.

‘Do this in Remembrance of Me’ - Luke 22: 19-20

 

Click for The Last Supper

 

We became the hands of Jesus to portray His journey through Holy Week from Palm Sunday to the Resurrection. 

 

Click for Holy Week in Jesus' Hands.

 

A week of recapping the skills we've learned this term from counting, making and ordering Numberblocks to using our MonsterPhonics in the continuous provision. We’ve spent lots of time pre-writing, forming, spotting and reading letters and sounds this week and especially loved helping Miss OhNo sort Puppy Pip's toy basket!

 

      

 

   

 

Ending the week with some Easter fun. We were busy in the Nursery Bake Off Kitchen making delicious chocolate Easter treats.

 

 

 

We loved parading our bonnets to all our parents! Thank you are for coming to see us! A big Thank You to Mr Rossiter for judging our bonnet competition and choosing this year's Easter Bonnet winner.

Continuing to explore the story of Jack and the Beanstalk this week, we've illustrated answers to the question, 'What will be at the top of your Beanstalk?'

 

    

 

 

We've been popping the pods to find the beans that have fallen from the Beanstalk to strengthen our fine motor skills.

 

     

  

Exploring Time for British Science Week. We've been busy printing with apples in the provision and tasting then voting for our favourite. We are observing the cores patiently to see how they change throughout the week and can't wait to see how they change after half term.

 

   

 

Click to see our investigation: British Science Week 2024

 

 

Continuing our British Science Week work by looking at the big question, ‘What does a farmer look like?’ with NFU Education. We joined the live session with Farmer Fiona and quickly realised girls can be farmers too!

Fe Fi Fo Fum, Look out Nursery, HERE I COME!!

 

With all the excitement of the Eisteddfod last week, our class dragon, Dilwyn, wanted to leave us a gift to say Da Iawn, but he got himself into a bit of a mess and now there's a giant beanstalk in the middle of our classroom! Can you guess which story we've been exploring?

Still image for this video

We retold the story of Jack and the Beanstalk dressed as our favourite Traditional Tales characters to celebrate World Book Day. Da Iawn to one of our three little pigs who was our PTFA Golden Ticket winner!

 

 

Still image for this video

We followed instructions to plant our own magic beans that Dilwyn had left us and discussed what we thought would be at the top of our beanstalks when they grow!

 

  

 

Snip, Snip! We are growing in confidence using scissors whilst exercising & strengthening our fine motor skills. We recycled the flowers used earlier in the term for our still life painting to get them ready for composting to help our new plants and beans to grow. 

 

 

 

 

As we continue our journey through Lent, We have been getting creative with charcoal. We know the church uses ashes as a symbol of being sorry. We reflected on gathering for Ash Wednesday and that receiving ashes is a sign of beginning again or trying hard. 

 

  

 

Check out our finished pieces: Charcoal Cross Art

 

Oh mercy, mercy me! We've been exploring the issues of our future  using Claire Donald's book, Mother Earth is weeping. We’ve been collecting litter ready to recycle and thinking of things we can do to help make Mother Earth happy again for a better and brighter future.

 

Week beginning 26th February 2024

Dressed in red and traditional Welsh clothing, we've been learning about and listening to the story of St David and thinking about how we can following his message and 'do the little things!' to help people just like St David did.

 

  

 

Thank you again, if you were able (we know how busy you are) to come along to our Coffee Morning and listen to us perform, You raised £273.80 for our school! Llongyfarchiadau Mawr!

 

 

 

 

 

  

Firstly, Diolch for all your support and for helping the children send in some fabulously Welsh DT tasks, every piece received was absolutely fantastic, so as you can imagine picking a 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th was very difficult. Da Iawn to the children who have worked very hard to learn a song and poem yn Gymraeg, in Welsh and perform in front of the whole school. 

 

  

 

Eisteddfod competitions winners and House winner will be announced next week.

(please see Nursery Information Page)

 

    

 

Week beginning 5th February 2024

 

 

We received a very important email on Monday morning from PC Jon Snow at South Wales Police. Our St Michael's neighbours were very worried when they heard roars and saw smoke and a large creature in our classroom over the weekend! Question is, can we help catch it?

Still image for this video

We listened to 'How to catch a Dragon.' by Adam Wallace and Andy Elkerton to inspire our own ideas on how we would catch the Dragon in our classroom. We came up with lots of ideas like using a giant net, beautiful fireworks and making our own Dragon dance.

Still image for this video

We made 'BEWARE' posters to warn the children and teachers that there was a mystery creature on the loose, we made sure to include key features in our mark-making so that everyone knew what to look out for if they saw something suspicious around the school!

 

   

 

We thanked Jesus for sharing his life with us during our Collective Worship this week as we listened to the story of Jesus visiting Simeon and Anna at The Temple. 

 

 

 

 

We've been fully immersed in story for National Story Telling Week with Jack and the Beanstalk using Now > Press > Play. We loved playing the part of Jack, the Giant and the Golden Egg! It was very scary crawling into the oven and hiding from Mr and Mrs Giant!

 

   

 

 

All things number to end the week as we took part in NSPCC's Number Day 2024. We dressed as our favourite Numberblocks, made Numberblock hats and explored the different shapes of Numberblock 5 using our favourite maths resource ... BROWNIES

After attending Mass (for the first time!) to celebrate the start of Advent, We listened to 'The Christmas Promise' and reflected on God's promise to send us 'a New King, a Rescuing King, a Forever King' and  made our own promises for Advent.

 

 

 

We've spent lots of time practising writing our names this week and working on strengthening our fine motor skills. Swiftie cheered us on and joined us to make our Christmas cards.

In the name of Science! We've been very busy this week exploring materials as part of our chemistry science week! We took ourselves around the school grounds looking for different materials and then sorted some materials back in the classroom. 

 

  

 

We started to talk about the properties of the materials and began to describe how they felt and what they looked like. We brought our favourite toys to school to help us!

 

   

 

We came to the end of our RE topic, 'Welcome' and talked about how thankful we are to have been made to feel so special being welcomed into the St Michaels Family when we started school back in September.

September 2023

We've had a lovely couple of weeks getting to know each other and settling into Nursery life at St Michaels. We've talked about the 'Golden Rules' and 'St Michaels Way' and made sure we know the importance of using our listening ears as we explored the classrooms, outdoors, and met our very sensible Year 6 buddies who we know will look after us and be great models! 

 

We've jumped straight into  our first topic, 'Marvellous Me!' by making marks to represent pictures of ourselves and our names.
