Nursery and Reception - Safer Internet Day!

Tuesday, February 5th, 2019

We have been learning about how to keep ourselves safe when we are using the internet!

First we talked about what the internet is which is a bit tricky to understand, although some of us knew that it is to do with using phones, tablets and computers. We then watched a video and talked about making safe choices and asking a grown-up if we are unsure when playing games on the internet. Finally, we talked about the different symbols we might see when we are playing games on the internet and what they mean, and sorted them into ‘yes’ and ‘no’ symbols.

Reception and Nursery Work Together!

Tuesday, November 6th, 2018

Today in the garden the children noticed our wooden boat had gone! Unfortunately the boat had become rotten and so had been removed. The children decided to work together to build a new boat, carefully carrying planks across the garden. The planks were very long and heavy, so they had to work in pairs to carry them. Some of the older children instructed the younger ones on how to carry the planks safely. The children designed their boat, and even included steering wheels and a plank for cheeky pirates to walk! What a lovely day they have had playing pirates and going on adventures!

Watcombe NURSERY's Got Talent!

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018

We enjoyed the talent show this morning so much, that we decided to have our own!! Well done to all the performers who took to the stage to showcase their talents – singing (‘Oops’ by Little Mix, ‘Let It Go’ from Frozen, ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’ from Trolls, and ‘Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star’), dancing and gymnastics!

So for many of us it is our last day at Nursery today. Most of us will see each other again in September when we return to Nursery or start in Reception. We have sadly had to say goodbye to some of our friends who are moving on to new schools. We hope they settle in well and make lots of new friends!

Have a wonderful Summer holiday everyone and we will see you all soon!

Nursery - Sports Day!

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

What a busy week! Yesterday we had a picnic on the playground at lunch time…

…and today we had our Sports Day! We have been practising our jumping, balancing and running skills all week and today we were finally able to show our families and friends what we can do. Thank you to Miss Schofield who stepped in at the last minute to be be in charge of the microphone. A special thank you to our helpers from Year 5 and everyone who came to watch and cheer us on!

Nursery - How many segments are there in a satsuma?

Friday, June 15th, 2018

After trying to count how many sultanas and raisins we had in our packets last week at snack time, this week we were wondering how many segments there are in a satsuma? Do all satsumas have the same number of segments or do some have more or less?

We each peeled a satsuma, separated it into segments and then put each segment on a number on our number track to help us keep track of our counting. It it sometimes tricky to match 1 number name to 1 object when we are counting lots of things, but by putting the satsuma segments in a line and touching each one, most of us were able to do this. Some of us also used the numbers we recognised to help us with our counting.

So how many segments are there in a satsuma? Well, some of us had the same number – 9.  Some of us had more than 9 – 10 or 11. But Oscar had the most number of segments – 12! After lots of thinking and concentrating, we finally ate them!
