Dear Parents,                                                                         

Welcome to the March edition of Rainbow News.    

 

Last month, we had our FAIRY TALES theme.

The children really enjoyed hearing about The Billy Goat’s Gruff, The Gingerbread man, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the beanstalk and our favourite Goldilocks and the three bears. They acted out the stories and dressed up in their favourite outfits.

 

As part of our Healthy Eating week, Mrs Canavan the Dental Hygienist came to talk about how to look after our baby teeth.

She also told us what happens on a visit to the dentist. She gave us all a new toothbrush and toothpaste to practice at home.

 

 

We had a special event to mark ‘WORLD BOOK DAY’ on Thursday 5th March.

The children came dressed in their favourite dressing up costumes. We read and dramatising our favourite Fairy Stories.

 

 

During the month of March, we will be starting a new topic on ‘Growing’.

Wednesday 10th March-visit from RSPB. ‘The Garden Mat’.

Catherine O'Boyle from the RSPB came to visit and tell us how to encourage wildlife into the garden.

She brought her garden mat and showed us all her 'animal 'friends'.

 

 

 

We are making great progress with our ‘Wildlife Acton Award Scheme’ and we will be submitting our entry next month.

Thank you to all who keep bringing in egg boxes and kitchen waste for the compost bin that we visit outdoors weekly.

 

The rhyme of the month is ‘Mary had a little lamb’.

 

 

 

Story of the month is ‘The Enormous Turnip’

Shape of the month is Oval.

We are encouraging the children to eat healthy snacks as part of the daily snack time routine. They are encouraged to try different textures and flavours as part of a healthy lifestyle. These habits form part of our ongoing Dental Health Programme’ –3,2,1 Dental Health award scheme-SAFE SNACKS FOR TEETH.*Please take time to read the leaflet sent home.*

February Rainbow News

 

 


   February 2015

 

Dear Parents,    

Welcome to the February edition of Rainbow News. We had a busy month in January with our ‘ice’ theme. We made ice balloons and ice cubes!

The weather was so cold, we put water outside overnight and ‘Jack Frost’ turned the water into ice! We watched everything shrink, melt and disappear.

 

The ice balloon is solid and freezing to touch.

 

Keeping our hands warm with a hot water bottle.

The North wind has brought the snow.

  

 

A snowgirl at Nursery!

 

Filling up the bucket with snow.


Scraping the snow with a spade.

My bucket is filled with snow.

  The birdcake seeds stick to our fingers.

We made bird cake for the birds and completed the RSPB BIG SCHOOL BIRD WATCH. We found out some birds names and habits.

If you would like more information go to www.rspb.org.

    

During the month of February, we begin our ‘Fairy Tales theme.

 

 

The story of the month is    

Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

 

 

 

 

Rhyme of the month is ‘Hey Diddle Diddle’

        

 

At circle time this month, we are focusing on the theme of ‘Kindness’ as part of our Emotional Intelligence Programme.

We have been talking about kind and unkind hands as part of our rules. We are also finding out about kind and unkind words we say to each other.

Talk to your child about how it feels when someone is kind (or unkind) to you and what makes a kind friend.

 

Parents are encouraged to check on their child’s head regularly for head lice and treat if necessary.

Pancake day---(17th February),

Mummy made pancakes on Tuesday,  

She tossed them in the air,

One fell on the table, One fell on the chair.

One fell on the cooker, one fell on the grate;

But lucky for me, I had three-

Because they fell on my plate.

 

Rice and Tuna, Rice and Tuna,

(to the tune of FrereJacques)

Beans on toast, beans on toast.

Pizza and spaghetti, pizza and spaghetti,                        

Pancake roll, pancake roll.

 

 

If you should meet a giant,

Don’t say ‘You’re very tall’!

Or he might take you in his hand…………….

And say ‘You’re very SMALL!’.

 

 

 Once I saw a little bird go hop, hop, hop’

And I said little bird won’t you stop, stop, stop.

I went over to the window to say ‘how do you do

But he shook his little tail and way he flew!

 

 

Hey Diddle Diddle

Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle,      

The cow jumped over the moon.

The little dog laughed to see such fun,

And the dish ran away with the spoon.

Songs and Rhymes for January.

The north wind doth blow,and we shall have snow;

And what will the robin do then poor thing?

He’ll sit in a barn, to keep himself warm,

And tuck his head under his wing, poor thing.

 

Five fat Polar bears (to the tune of ten green bottles)

Five fat Polar bears sliding in the snow;

There’d be four fat Polar bears sliding in the snow.  

Four fat Polar bears.........etc

Five little penguins went fishing in the sea.

They slid on the ice and they went wheeee.....!

One little penguin bumped his head,

His mummy then sent him straight to bed.

Four little penguins...etc

 

Baa Baa white sheep,

have you any wool?

No Sir, no Sir, no bags full. None to mend the jumpers,

none to mend the frocks.

And none to mend the little boys with holes in their socks!

 

 

One day we built a snowman,(this fits the tune of ‘My old man’s a dustman’)

We built him out of snow.

You should have seen how fine he was, all white from top to toe.

We poured some water over him, to freeze his legs and ears;

And when we went indoors to bed, we thought he’d last for years.

But in the night a warmer kind of wind began to blow;

And Jack frost cried and ran away, and with him went the snow.

When we went out next morning to bid our friend ‘Good day’,

There wasn’t any snowman there.......He’d melted right away.

 

 

We are getting ready for the ‘Big School’s Big Garden Bird Watch’ at the end of the month.

                                 Whoo, whoo, whoo; whoo, whoo, whoo.

Wee Willie Winkie.                         

Wee Willie Winkie, runs through the town.

Upstairs and downstairs in his nightgown.

Are all the children in their bed?

                                 It’s past eight o’clock.

 

Twinkle, Twinkle little star

Twinkle, twinkle, little star, how I wonder what you are.

Up above the world so high, like a diamond in the sky.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star, how I wonder what you are.

When the blazing sun is gone, when he nothing shines upon;

When you show your little light, twinkle, twinkle through the night.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star, how I wonder what you are.

 

I see the moon                                                

I see the moon, the moon sees me,

God bless the moon and God bless me.

There were ten in the bed and the little one said,

’Roll over’, roll over;

So they all rolled over and one fell out....there were nine in the bed .................etc  

 

 

Hush, little baby (a song to sing you to sleep)

Hush little baby, don’t say a word. Mama’s gonna buy you a mockin’ bird. ( or Papa)

If that mockin’ bird don’t sing, Mamma’s gonna buy you a diamond ring.

If that diamond ring turns brass, Mamma’s gonna buy you a looking glass.

If that looking glass gets broke, Mamma’s gonna buy you a billy goat.

And if that billy goat won’t pull, Mama’s gonna buy you a cart and bull.

And if that cart and bull fall down, you’ll be the sweetest little baby in town.

He knocked on the door with a rat-a-tat-tat!    

He looked at the dolly and he shook his head;

And he said ‘Miss Polly put her straight to bed.

He wrote on a paper for a pill, pill, pill.

‘I’ll be back in the morning-yes I will, will, will.
