Rhymes of the week:
Nursery parents, children and teachers enjoyed getting together to learn about and taste different types of bread from all over the world. Everyone tasted the bread and voted for their favourite.
Just like the Little Red Hen Mrs Sahni asked 'Who will help me?'.
A big thank you to all the parents who said 'I will help!'.
Generously they supplied all the bread and accompaniments.
Thank you from Mrs Sahni, Mrs Chana and Mrs Baker

Royal Wedding Celebrations
In afternoon Nursery children dressed in red, white and blue and enjoyed learning about the Royal wedding. We saw photographs of the Royal couple and explored real wedding objects to learn new words. We made flags, bunting, red, white and blue chains to decorate the nursery. On the dough table and in the mud kitchen they made wedding food fit for royalty. In the flower shop we arranged and sold wedding bouquets. We also made confetti and wedding cards and danced to wedding music and sang a wedding rhyme.
In the week beginning 7th May 2018, Reception and Nursery came together to launch the reading for pleasure programme called FRED – Fathers Reading Every Day. The children enjoyed the opportunity to have a healthy breakfast with their fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers and cousins and mothers. For four weeks, fathers and father figures will spend 15 minutes a day for two weeks, reading with their children – then 30 minutes a day for a second two weeks. Each father will record the amount of time spent reading to their children and the number of books read. Thank you to Mrs Sahni, Jeszemma Garratt (Head of FRED training) and Mrs Harrison for their excellent speeches about the importance of FRED at Goldthorn!
The morning nursery children visited Spring Vale library on Thursday 15th March. They learned about how the library works and had the opportunity to make masks related to stories.
Elizabeth (the community librarian) shared some of her favourite books with us.
The children then chose books to read alone, or to share with their family and friends. They enjoyed looking at a range of fiction and non-fiction books, and all left with their own library card and first set of book loans!
