Class blog

 

We now have a class blog so that Miss Arnold can share challenges with you and see what you are learning at home. I am missing you all! You can access it through https://login.bgfl365.uk. 

 

You will need your bgfl log in. Most children received these last week. Please check your book bags for these. If you do not have your log in please email: enquiry@olstrose.bham.sch.uk to ask for yours. 

 

Please see the document below for instructions on how to post on the blog. 

 

It would be really lovely to see a post from every child at some point. New challenges are posted on the blog each week and it would be great to see how you are all doing!

Create an Easter Garden

 

During this time of Lent, we are getting ready for Jesus’ death and resurrection on the cross. Normally, at this time of year, I would challenge you to make your own Easter Garden. I have put some photographs of examples below however you can create your Easter Garden in any way you like. They nearly always feature a tomb and a cross but the rest is up to you! I can’t wait to see how creative you can be.

 

Please post photos of your wonderful creations on the blog!

Nursery Trip to Ash End Farm

 

We had the most wonderful day out at Ash End Farm today. The children were incredibly well behaved and stayed cheerful and enthusiastic throughout what was a long and busy day. Once we arrived the children had the opportunity to see the farm allotment, birds of prey and the a range of reptiles. We were amazed when we were allowed to stroke a giant tortoise!

 

After this, we went to have lunch in our very own barn to build up our energy for the fun we still had to come. Next, the children had the chance to see lots of different breads of sheep and even stroke a lamb. The children impressed our farm guide with their knowledge about what can be made with sheep's wool and the name of a baby sheep. 

 

We went to visit the hatchery next and stroke the tiny chicks and have some older chicks on our laps. The chicks and chickens all looked very different and they felt very soft. 

 

We then moved on to help Farmer Debbie collect the eggs from the lying eggs. We all got to collect one and tomorrow the children can take these home to make their favourite egg dish. We would love to see photos of your delicious dishes! 

 

As our day drew to a close we got to see lots of shire horses and visit and feed the goats. The horses were a lot bigger than us - even the foal! 

 

A massive thank you to those parents who came to help on the day and those who offered their help also. We couldn't make these trips happen without your support.

Lenten Retreat

 

The children had a wonderful opportunity last week to take part in a Lenten retreat run by Dan and Emily from One Life Music. They spent the day singing, playing games, praying and reflecting on scripture to help prepare their hearts for Easter during this special time. We had a special focus on, "A God who speaks" as it is the Year of The Word. Nursery reflected particularly on the bible verse, "Love is kind" 1 Corinthians 13:4.

Growing and changing

 

The children have loved learning all about how things grow and change this term. We have learnt about how humans grow and develop, how plants grow from seeds and all about the life cycle of a caterpillar. We have been learning all about the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and have made our own caterpillars, butterflies and have acted out the story.

 

E-safety day 

 

As E-safety day is this week, we will be learning about how to keep safe online in Nursery.

 

This is a great link with age appropriate e-safety resources that you may like to share with your children. https://www.childnet.com/resources/smartie-the-penguin

Homework

 

Please be aware that a new homework sheet has been stuck into the children's homework books. The challenges are designed to be worked through at your own speed throughout the term. Thank you to those of you who completed lots of the homework challenges last term. Please can we ask that children are not allowed to just scribble on the front of or in the homework books. 

 

We have also set the children a challenge to teach a family member or friend to do some star jumps and jump on one foot after we learnt to do this in PE.

 

Thank you!

Thank you so much for your incredible generosity to our library book appeal. Nursery donated lots of beautiful books and they will make our library a far more exciting place for the children.
