Snowflakes C

WELCOME TO SNOWFLAKES C NURSERY

This is the class page for Snowflakes C Nursery.   Mrs. Claridge is the Class Teacher and she is supported by

Mrs. Wilkinson, Mrs. Cooper, Miss. Wilkin, Mrs. Wasniowska and Mrs. Unegbu, who are all Teaching Assistants. 

Here, on our class page, you can read all about the activities which we have been busy doing. 

Tuesday, 11th August 2020

 

Hello Everyone,

 

I just wanted to send you all a quick message on both the Class Page and on the Home Learning Page to say hello and I do hope that you are all enjoying the summer holidays and keeping safe and well with your families.   It is certainly very hot at the moment so I hope that you are all managing to stay cool, maybe by doing some fun water activities outside. 

We have a couple of birthdays happening during the holidays; Micah celebrated his 4th birthday on 22nd July and Joselyn will celebrate her birthday on 24th August.  On behalf of everyone, I would like to wish you both “Happy Birthday”.  I do hope that Micah had a nice birthday and that Joselyn has a lovely day for her birthday later this month. 

For those Snowflakes who were in school before the end of term, how are your sunflowers doing?  Are they still growing?  With all of this lovely hot sunshine, they should be growing well now. I am sending you a photo of my sunflower which still hasn’t got any flowers yet!  I am also sending you all some photos of some very large sunflowers which I have seen when going on walks and runs around Barnet and Potters Bar.  I thought you would like to see them.   Some of them with the faces made me smile!

Anyway, I do hope that you all enjoy the rest of your summer holidays.  Keep safe and well and I look forward to seeing you all again in September. 

My best wishes to you all.

 

Mrs. Claridge

Amelia and Anika have emailed in some lovely photographs - they are both in Poland and want to say hello to their friends in Snowflakes C.

A wonderful photograph of Maciej celebrating his 4th birthday in Poland with his family.

10th July - Birthday wishes from everyone to Reuben and Petar who both celebrate their 4th birthdays this weekend.  Reuben is one day older than Petar as he celebrates his birthday tomorrow, Saturday, while Petar will turn 4 on Sunday. Enjoy your birthdays and have lots of fun!

9th July 2020 - Today we made paper plate shells. We used crayons to make shading on a paper plate and then used wool to make a shell pattern. It was quite tricky to thread the wool through the holes but with a bit of guidance we managed.

7th July 2020 - Here are some photographs of what we have been doing this week. We took dinosaurs for a walk in the paint and we have been taking turns to do a Puppet Show, retelling The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch with paper puppets.

Friday, 3rd July - Hello everyone, here are some photographs of what we have been doing in school this week. There are some photographs of us making our Lighthouses. If you did make a lighthouse this week at home, please do take a photograph of it and send it in to school. This morning, we went to Forest School and found things to collect in our 'feely' bags. This afternoon, we took turns to sort, by colour, the different things which we had found. It was a good opportunity to talk about the different things which we see when we visit Forest School.

We have two more birthdays over the next few days.  Jasmine has her birthday, tomorrow, Saturday and Maciej has his birthday on Monday.  Many Happy Returns to you both from all of us in Snowflakes C.  We hope that you have lots of fun with your families.  

Friday 26th June 2020 - Today, we spent some time in Forest School. We found different leaves and collected them in our own bags. We also saw a cat while we were in Forest School - he was a black cat so we have named him Midnight. Perhaps we will see him next week when we visit Forest School. When we got back to our classroom, we took turns to show our friends what we had collected. We sorted the leaves into those which were big and those which were small. We talked about different colours and shapes. Here are some photographs from today's learning.

Here are some photographs which Charis has sent in to share. Thank you.

Tuesday, 23rd June - On behalf of everyone in Snowflakes C, I would like to wish Jude a very

Happy 4th Birthday for today.  We hope that you are having a great day in the warm sunshine. 

Friday 19th June - We put on our wellies and raincoats this morning and took a walk up to Forest School. We played some ring games together in the field and then walked into the woods. Today, we each collected a stick which we turned into a fairy wand for making wishes. After our visit to Forest School, we did our Daily Mile around the playground. It was then time to go back to our classroom for lunch. Here are some photographs of us all waving our fairy wands and making some wishes.

17th June 2020 - Today, we made our very colourful Aquariums which we shall add to our class display. If you have made one at home, please do email in a photo and we can add it here.

15th June 2020 - When we were outside this morning, we watched the crows teaching their young how to fly. If you look closely, you will be able to see the adult crow sitting on the roof of The Edwards Suite and the young crow is sitting on the fence.

13th June 2020 - A very Happy Birthday to Angel who is celebrating her 4th Birthday today.  Happy Birthday wishes to you Angel from everyone in Snowflakes C.  Have a super day celebrating with your family.

Birthday Wishes - Today (6th June), we have two birthdays in Snowflakes C.  Yehan and Zane are both celebrating their 4th Birthdays, so on behalf of us all I would like to wish them both a very Happy Birthday.  

4th June 2020 - During our RE learning today, we brought items from our Prayer Table to the centre of our circle and we said a prayer for our families and friends.

3rd June 2020 - These are the Noodle Boats which we made in school today. We chose our favourite number to write on to the sails of our boats.

2nd June 2020 - Who Sank The Boat? - Here are some photographs of our activity today after listening to the story 'Who Sank The Boat?' We all tried to guess which animal was going to sink the boat. None of us thought it would be the mouse because he was the smallest animal.

Here are some photographs which Charis has emailed to me which she would like to share with the class - 1st June 2020.

Our topic this half-term has been 'Where Does Snow Go?' so there were lots of fun activities going on; painting polar bears, making 'play dough' penguins, cutting and assembling 'split pin' polar bears, small world play in the tuff tuff tray with icebergs, penguins, polar bears and seals. 

For R.E., we have been learning about how Jesus helped people when they were ill, so there was 'doctor' dressing up in the Home Corner for role play.
