Nursery has been super fun and exciting these last few weeks. Pirates has been such a great topic to get our imaginations going. Pirate dress up day was a real success. Thank you for you support the children looked fantastic! We loved looking for clues around our school grounds on our treasure hunt and we found X marks the spot. We have also enjoyed counting treasure into the treasure chest, making pirate boats, digging for treasure, making coins from golden playdough hanging up the pirates pants in our pirate ship role play and many more...
We are collecting yoghurt pots and small boxes please place in the small bin at Nursery's entrance.
Red Nose Day is on Friday 24th of March, please come wearing a hint of RED and contribute £1 to this worthy charity. Thank you

We had a great week finding out about Chinese New Year. We made lots of crafts linked to China and the Year of the Rooster and we have been busy cooking in Tia Ten's Chinese restuarant role play.

A terrific two weeks in Nursery. Goldilocks and the Three Bears has been a real hit, especially making, tasting and eating porridge like the Three Bears. We have also had a visit from Freddie Four this week which was lots of fun. We loved listening to his story, going on a number hunt and packing his bag.
We have also been busy learning new letter sounds, practising our names and we love mark making activities, especially outside with the chalks!
We have also been challenging ourselves learning some Spanish greetings and trying to match rhyming words, However there is always make time for fun - like dress ups!

We have been busy finding out about materials during our theme on Traditional Tales. The Gingerbreadman story and the The Three Little pigs were our favourite stories and have helped us find out about the different properties materials and what happens when they change. We did some floating and sinking with the Gingerbread man, built the Three Little Pigs house, explored what happens to biscuits when they fall in water, we used a cool hairdyer on some sticks, bricks and straw to explore which material is the strongest! That was fun. We loved exploring flour and water in our messy tray but the Thre Little Pigs role play was our favourite.

Sports day fun! Thank you for coming to watch us in our sports races.
We have enjoyed finding out about plants and life cycles in our living things topic. We enjoyed visiting the vegetable gardens. The strawberries were our favourite. We also planted our ownsunflower seeds and we have enjoyed watching them sprout. We can't believe how quickly they grow.
The sunflowers and plants have inspired us to make some beautiful pieces of artwork too.
