Term 2 - Light and Dark and Celebrations
This term is one of our favourites but it's such a busy one for us! We are looking at the topic of 'Light & Dark' and we are also talking about different types of celebrations at this time of year, obviously including Christmas! During this term so far we have had our Halloween party, talked about fireworks and created some lovely works of art and now we are thinking about Christmas - practicing our Christmas songs ready for our Singalong with parents and carers.
Welcome back to Term 4! We hope you all had a fantastic half term. Hopefully the weather this term will start to warm up and we can begin to get out and about the school grounds a bit more.
This term we will be learning about growing, lifecycles and Easter. We will be looking at what plants need to grow, growing various plants in our outdoor area, planting sunflower seeds, learning about the lifecycles of different plants and animals and talking about Easter.
We will be setting up a flower and veg shop in our role play area as well as carrying on with our ongoing activities - painting, arts & crafts, imaginative play, singing and dancing, yoga and cooking.
It was lovely to see our Little Hedgehogs dressed up for World Book day and to see so many of our parents able to join us for the family read.
We were also very lucky to have the lovely Andrea from Bundle of Books in Herne Bay visit us to read us a story.
Term 3 - January 2019
Welcome back to a very chilly start to the year!
Firstly we would like to wish a very warm welcome to our new children and parents who have just started. we are very excited to have you as part of the Hampton family!
This term we are talking about 'People who help us' and learning about different roles and jobs. We will also be celebrating Chinese New Year by trying some different foods, doing some craft activities and making up dragon dances!
Our ongoing activities include, mark making and name writing, number and shape games and also practicing our cooking skills.
As a school we are very focused on healthy lifestyles and we like to do whatever we can to ensure healthy bodies and healthy minds. We currently do a 'wake up and shake up' every morning, a 4 minute run and finish our day with a relaxation and meditation session.
We love to get outdoors as much as possible so please ensure that your child is wrapped up warm when they come to nursery, with clothing named.
