Plants and Bugs

User Rating:  / 1

Hi all,

We have had a great few weeks finding out about living things!. We really enjoyed learning about the parts of plant and which parts we can eat. All of them! We were very gentle planting our own seeds and seedlings and are helping the teachers look after them as they start to grow. We went minibeast hunting despite the weather and found lots of of millipedes and worms! We made our own minibeast model from clay and pipe cleaners. We also als madet the life cycle of a butterfly and enjoyed some 'Very Hungry Caterpillar' yoga!

A very big welcome back to Miss Barrell who will be working morning sessions with us again.

A Bear Hunt in Nursery!

User Rating:  / 1

Sorry we have not updated the blog for some time wer have had a few technical problems.

The children absolutely loved our week on 'Going on a Bear Hunt' they enjoyed so many different activities. We loved going on a real hunt around the school saying the story as we went. It was very fun and little scary when we found the bear and had to run all the way back to Nursery! We used our sense of touch all week to explore and describe different textures. Our favourite activity was the 'bare foot' walk. The mud felt so squishy between our toes!

Pirate Fun Day!

Our Dress Up Pirate day was so much fun. We enjoyed a treasure hunt before the rain came, made some priate cakes, enjoyed pirate games in the hall and we loved finding the mini treasures in the blue spagetti!


Pirates 'aaarrgh'

User Rating:  / 0


We have loved our Pirate theme this term. we have explored pirate ships, labelled the parts of the ship and had a go at making one.Threading the sails was quite tricky. The gunports were made from cheiros which made us giggle!. We have counted treasures into all kinds of treasure boxes and made our own treasure from playdough, rocksalt, clay and plenty of glitter of course. We had lots of fun exploring maps in atlases, on a computer program and then making our very own. It was funny using tea water to make them look old. Our special people were very good following an old map around our classroom to find the hidden treasure box! We put in our Pirate ship role play to count and share fairly with our ship mates. Don't forget... PIRATE DRESS UP DAY... this Thursday. We might find some real buried treasure!

Hi All,

We have had some fabuous events in Nursery over the last week. Yesterday some of our Mums and Dads came to play with us in Nursery for our Stay and Play session. It was very busy but lots of fun. We look forward to seeing more Mums and Dads at Friday Forest schools!. We have had two sessions on our balance bikes and we are getting better at our long bike rides. We loved dressing up for book week and enjoyed a great story from 'The Cat in the Hat'.



Under Sea fun...

User Rating:  / 1

Hi All,

We have all been very busy last week trying to decororate our role play and display boards for our new theme... 'Commotion in in the Ocean'. We have made a phonics whale. We worked as a team to stamp on the letters from the alphabet. We tried to find letters we recognised too.  We made some beautiful shells and starfish using some left over bubble wrap. Our wibbly wobbly jelly fish dangle abouve our heads in the roleplay. We explored 2D shapes to create our own sparkly sea creatures, Our undersea divers on our display look very familiar and finally we had time look at all our fabulous homework posters and read some of the books too.

We enjoyed finding out about Chinese New Year Cebrations in Nursery last week. We tried lots of new activities. Many of us were very brave and tasted some Chinese food. The prawn crackers were our favourites and we decided to have some for our snack time too. We enjoyed dressing up and visitingthe Chinese restaurant role play, some of us even practised holding chopsticks. We were busy in our blue tray cooking with Tia Ten. We also enjoyed dancing and making lots of beautiful crafts. Our finger print blossom trees looked so beautiful.

Happy New Year Everyone,

We thought we would pop on a few photos from our Christmas Party at the end of the Term for you to enjoy today.

We loved it when Father Christmas suprised us first thing and brought us all a lovely gift. We were all very brave and went to collect our present from him. He made lots of jokes and made us laugh.
