We had a fantastic 'Teddy Bears' Party' with Super Steve's disco and our Mums, Dads and Grandparents, not forgetting our teddies!
We said goodbye to Mrs. Valance who was retiring, but we are sure that she will come back to visit us in September!
Nursery Memories Of Jay, A Remarkable Little Boy.
We remember Jay starting Nursery as a child who was unable to stand for more than a minute or so,
holding furniture. From a boy who navigated his way around Nursery, indoors and outdoors, scooting on his bottom to a child who could stand independently to paint at the easel, play with the dough and look
at the pictures of Buzz LightYear, Woody and his family on “Jays’ favourite things” pinned to the
Once Jay started using the walking frame, there was no stopping him! He was delighted with his newly discovered independence. Jay was such a happy little boy; he enjoyed sitting with his friends at the
snack table, laughing and shouting, “Cracker Thacker! Cracker Thacker!” to Mrs Thacker in the kitchen. Recently, his speech had taken off; Jay tried out new words every day. He had a mischievous sense of humour. He repeated Mrs Armstrong’s words, “Mrs Lockhart’s cheeky!” and from then on “Cheeky Lockhart” stuck!
We remember Jay laughing with Molly in the water play while she hid the Nemo and Dory toys under
shells, “Keep swimming!” Jay would often say. We remember him playing with Buzz and Woody
alongside Ross and Jay sitting on the bike with his friend Luke, being taken around the outdoors.
We recall Jay’s determination to climb the ladder in the playhouse, with Mrs Caulfield’s support, and
his delight to be with his friends high up and being photographed. Mrs Valance walked Jay outdoors
helping him to kick a ball to friends. Mrs Armstrong set up a gift box for “Pixie Jay” so he could stand up like his friends in the Christmas Nativity on the stage. Jay was fascinated by the newly hatched
chick he gently held in his hands, laughing with Mrs Wright.
We laugh when we recall Jay shouting “Yee cow! “ to Mrs Lockhart, a shortened version of “Yee ha cowboy!” Jay was delighted when Mrs Lockhart tied Buzz and Woody to his walking frame so he could
have them to hand outdoors!
We will never forget Jay’s daily laughter and joy when he saw his family coming to pick him up from
Jay was a truly special little boy with a contagious smile and a fighting spirit. What a privilege it has
been to know such a brave little man.
We have had a busy week in Nursery; digging up our potatoes for snack, building constructions, exploring Maths activities, playing football, playing school and making mud potions!
We found slugs, snails, ants and woodlice when we harvested out potatoes. We even found a heart shaped potato, see if you can spot it on the photographs.
The highlight of the week was releasing the butterflies we have been caring for since they were tiny caterpillars. Some children were lucky enough to have the butterflies land on them!
We loved the Year 1 assembly with the Rio carnival dancers. We made our own carnival head dresses out of feathers, card, coloured pens, collage, glue, staples and sellotape.
Don't we look great!
We had fun together playing number skittles, Hook a Duck, sorting and cutting out giant coins (Jim and the Beanstalk story) , building with large foam 3D shapes, painting boxes and drawing around blocks on the floor. We enjoyed drawing and writing in our floor book while we glued in photos from the shape hunt. We parked cars in numbered parking lots and played French bingo too.
