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!

End of Hub groups for the year

Monday, July 16th, 2018

The Hub groups have finished and we have had a great time talking about ourselves! We have focused on self-esteem this year; thinking about the things people like about us and what we like about ourselves. We’ve made biscuits, decorated sun-catchers to hang in the Hub, created some shaving foam art and made our initials from clay. It has been a challenge sometimes, to talk about the positive things about us, as so much of the time we can focus on the negative. We hope that the work we have been¬†doing together will help us all have a more positive outlook as we move on to our new classes.

B2 - Play In A Day!

Friday, June 29th, 2018

We were really excited to take part in a drama workshop with Konflux Theatre Group this week.

We spent the day rehearsing and learning about Ancient Greek History – particularly Alexander the Great, Pandora’s Box and the Olympics.

We had no scripts – it was all about remembering what to say and do!

At the end of the day, we performed our play – “Greece Is The Word” – to the rest of the school and our parents.¬† We had such a lot of fun and were proud of all the new skills and knowledge we had acquired.
