If we live by truth and in love, we shall grow in Christ

Space Travel

The Nursery  class continue to enjoy their learning about Space. This week our story focus was 'Whatever Next' by Jill Murphy - a story about a bear who travels to the moon in a cardboard box. We have been learning about the Planets using non-fiction books and songs. We have enjoyed so many different Space related activities - we made and explored moon rocks, used shaving foam and paint  to create pictures of different planets and made super star constellations.


In RE we heard the words from the Bible which tell us about The Presentation of Jesus at the temple where Jesus met Simeon and Anna who blessed him and proclaimed him as a ‘light for the world’.  Some children enjoyed dressing up as a character from the story. 


A WOW moment is a chance for parents to celebrate their child’s  interests and achievements at home, such as writing their name, using a computer or tablet confidently, getting dressed independently, enjoying a book together, helping you to cook, learning something new at an outside club or activity, enjoying a fun day out or an interesting visit or sharing  an exciting family holiday destination.  Please don’t forget to add your WOW moments to TAPESTRY, especially after a school break.


Have a lovely weekend,


Amanda Corcoran and The Nursery team.
