7th May Repeated Patterns

This week the Nursery children have been describing, completing, copying and creating repeated patterns. The children created their own patterns using pens, chalk, counters and blocks working both inside Nursery and in the garden.  

29th April The Sports Courts

This week the Nursery children were very excited to see the completed courts in the playground. On Friday we decided to go outside for our P.E session to explore the new courts.  We warmed up by running around the courts and then the children practised throwing balls at a target, into crates and the basket ball hoops.  

Enjoying the sunshine

This week the Nursery children have been enjoying the spring sunshine. Here are some of the children in their spaceships flying off to far away places.

Treasure Maps

This week as part of our topic 'Ships Ahoy' the children have been drawing their own treasure maps.  The children looked at images of treasure maps and sea creatures, worked with an adult to draw a shared map and then created their own designs. 

Shopping Trip

This week the children celebrated the end of our bear topic with a teddy bears' picnic.  The children visited a local shop to buy food for the party.  All the children listened carefully and followed the adults' instructions ensuring that they had a safe and enjoyable trip.  A special thank you to all the parents who accompanied us on the trip.

Special visitors

As part of Enterprise week we welcomed some very special visitors to Nursery.  Some parents came into Nursery to tell us all about their jobs and explain what they do during the day.  We were visited by Mr Gilani who is a teacher and PC Sher.  The children enjoyed talking to our visitors, asking them questions and they even got to try on a police hat and take their fingerprints using black paint.  

Enterprise Week

This week the Nursery children took part in Enterprise week. We decided to make Rainbow cookies that all our friends could eat because they were nut, gluten, milk, egg and soya free.  The children designed their cookies using stickers and paper circles, created a rainbow logo, filmed an advert, made and packaged our cookies. 

7th January

This week we started our new topic 'We’re Going On A Bear Hunt'. Our first core book was 'Goldilocks And The Three Bears'. To help the children understand events in the book we made our own porridge. The children took it in turns to measure out the oats and stir the porridge. They enjoyed using all of their senses to explore  the changes that took place as the porridge was heated but the best part was tasting the results  of all their hard work. 

14th December

The children had a very exciting experience today.  We were visited by Atomic Anthony from Fizz Pop Science and we all took party in an action packed science workshop.  We learnt how bubbles are formed, used special glasses to see the spectrum of light, made bubble snakes, played with catchable bubbles, launched a bubble rocket and created our own chemical reaction using citric acid, baking soda and water. 

30th November

16th November

This week have introduced challenge cards.  Each week the children are set three different challenges to complete.  Each challenge is set in a different area of the Nursery and is designed to encourage the children to try new activities and develop new skills. Each child has a challenge card with a picture of the week's challenges. As the children complete a challenge they show it to a member of the team and collect a stamp for their challenge card.  The chidlren have really embraced the challenges and we are looking forward to seeing their skills and confidence levels increase.  You can see some examples of this week's three challenges below, painting a picture of the moon, creating a play dough alien and building a rocket.  

2nd November 2018

This week as part of their new topic 'Up and Away' the children have been reading the core book 'The Great Balloon Hullaballoo'. The characters in the story visit each of the planets in the solar system to collect an item on their shopping list.  The children enjoyed learning the names of the planets in the solar system and talking about what they each looked like. At the end of the week the children created their own planets.  They each chose an image of a planet, looked carefully at their chosen image then chose the paints they needed.  The children added paint to their paper circle then placed a sheet of plastic over the top and spread the paint around to create new colours and effects.

Climbing Higher!

This week new hand and foot holds were added to our climbing wall to make it easier for all the children to access it.  The new holds mean the children can safely climb higher and further without adult support.

Welcome Back to Nursery!

Our children returning for their second year in Nursery started back this Wednesday.  They have settled in very well and are getting back into the routine of being in Nursery.  This week they have been spending time exploring the new resources and layout inside and checking on our garden.  On Thursday they found some ripe tomatoes that had survived the heat wave and had a lovely time picking, washing and eating the fruits of their labour.
