30th June

Good morning  lovely children and parents!


In the Nursery, we start each day with the lighting of the candle to remind us that Jesus is with us.  Maybe you could do that at home, sometimes, before you pray and then your child could be chosen to blow the candle out.  Every class at school does this every morning.


In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit: 

Our Father, Who art in heaven,

Hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come,

Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread,

and forgive us our trespasses

as we forgive those who trespass again us;

and lead us not into temptation, 

but deliver us from evil


Today is Tuesday 29th of June. It is cloudy with the  possibility of some rain.  Let's sing together the days of the week song.

Days of the Week Song | The Singing Walrus


Many pirates liked to wear gold and silver jewellery because they believed it gave them good eyesight, very important, especially at night time. They took on different names to describe themselves for example:

pegleg, one-eyed, black beard. Famous pirates' names are Captain Blackbeard,  Captain William Kidd, Redbeard or Black Bart. These names are called nicknames. Do you have a nickname at home? A special name your parents call you? If you don't have a nickname what would you like to be called?

Most pirated believed it was unlucky to have women onboard but that did not stop some women. They were as dangerous as the men. One of these women was Anne Bonney.

Pirates had special words for lots of different things, for example:

Ahoy - hello

Matey - friend

Booty - treasure

Aye - yes

Land ahoy - I can see land ahead

yo ho ho -something you say when you are happy

Tomorrow I am going to to teach you speak like a pirate.

Let's listen to a pirate story together:

The Treasure of Pirate Frank

Try to answer these questions:

What happened in the story?

How does the boy feel like?

Describe the boy

What is he looking for?

How does Sally Frank feel?

What would you do if you were in the story?

Would you run away in the end?

Would you make friends with Sally Frank?

  • Write numbers 1-10, making sure you form them correctly.
  • Cut the numbers and use them in your play.
  • Mix them all up and put them in order
  • "Guess the number" game, let you parent hide one of the numbers and you can tell them what number is missing. If it easy for you, 2 or 3 numbers could be missing.
  • Use the numbers to count up to 10 and then count down from 10-1.
