Parent Forecast Autumn 1
Welcome to 'Seedlings Class' everybody! Some children are returning to school after the long holiday and some children are coming to school for the very first time. How exciting is that!
In nursery, there are two teachers and three teaching assistants. Miss Zdrava comes at lunchtime too.
Mrs Hedge and Mrs Allen are the teachers, and Mrs Mitchell, Miss Harrison and MIss Brittain are here to help too.
We have lots of fun-filled activities planned, and we will also take notice of the things that you like to do so that we can do more of them.
Keep your eyes peeled for photos of our learning.
My name is Mrs Hedge and I teach in Nursery on a Monday and Tuesday. I am in school all week because I am also an Assistant Head Teacher and SENCO. That means I look after lots of children right across school.
I have worked at Kirkby Avenue for a very long time and have taught lots of boys and girls who are now grown-ups! That makes me feel very old!
I have two grown up boys of my own too, we love football and really enjoy going to matches.
I love stories too and look forward to sharing lots of your favourites with you.
We think very carefully about learning and how to make it fun for you so you will enjoy coming to school.
See you soon and we will all have fun learning together.
My name is Mrs Allen and I am the teacher in Nursery on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. I have worked at Kirkby Avenue for a very long time - my first ever class here will be starting sixth form or college this year!
At home, I have got a little dog called Ted and an almost 3 year old boy. He’s just a little bit younger than you and loves ‘Paw Patrol’. Who is your favourite pup? Mine is Marshall.
My favourite story is 'Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy'. Come and tell me about your favourite stories.
We would like to welcome all our children back after the Easter holidays. We hope you had a restful and fun break. We are looking forward to having some fun this term, we have lots of exciting things planned for the lead up to summer!
Below is the parent forcast for you to have a look at the things we are going to be learning in school.
Hello everyone! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. It's that time again to go back to home learning. Below is a home learning menu to keep you all busy as we start to roll out the home learning again. I have set some work on 'Purple Mash' for you to complete, and will be in touch soon to talk to you about the home learning. As before we would love it if you could post photos and videos of you completing the work onto 'Evidence Me'. Any questions please email me through 'Purple Mash'.
I can't wait to see all the fun activities you get up to at home.
We have set up a new platform for remote learning called Class Dojo. Below is a letter explaining how we are going to use it. Lots of you have set it up already and using it and it is great to see.

Reading in Seedling Class
You might have seen the email I've sent to you through Purple Mash about reading at home. We are trying to encourage children to share reading at home with their grown-ups and siblings. The early stages of reading with our children will be retelling stories they have heard. Children will often want stories they love to be read to them over and over again, this helps them to be able to retell the story without actually being able to read the words. We want children to enjoy stories because this will support them in enjoying reading independently when they move to that stage of their reading journey. I would love it if you could email me through Purple Mash when your child has listen to a story on Oxford Owls. Below are documents you might find useful when reading stories together with your child. I look forward to hearing some of the stories you have shared together.
Work for isolating children
Please see below a home learning menu to keep your children busy while learning at home. There is also work set on 'Purple Mash'. I have sent you an email on 'Purple Mash' explainig what I would like the children to do. Please email me with any questions or ring school.
Friday 27th November was 'Fun Friday' in school. Here are some of the fun things the children in nursery got up to!
Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree
We are learning the words to the song 'Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree'. Below is the link for you to practise at home. We have also asked you to send us pictures of the nursery children stood next to their Christmas tree at home through 'Evidence Me' or the email system on 'Purple Mash'.
Here We Are!
We’ve been reading a story called “Here We Are”. The children really enjoyed the space part of the story so chose to learn about planets. The children painted paper plate planets choosing which was their favorite planet and talking about the colours they needed. We then decorated rockets and glued our faces on making it look like they were the astronauts flying through space. Finally as a whole class we used paper mache to cover balloons and paint them like all the planets.
In nursery we have been learning about the season autumn. We went on an autumn walk and talked about what has happened to the leaves on the trees. The children noticed the leaves falling off the trees and that the leaves were changing colour. They told me that the leaves were red, orange, yellow and brown. We went back to nursery and the children painted these beautiful trees.
Children In Need celebrations at home
We hope you’re all having fun at home and doing something exciting for Children In Need. We can’t wait to see the photos of what you get up too!
