A Walk to the Postbox

User Rating:  / 2

We have been very busy this week thinking about the letter "s" and lots of words beginning with this letter: socks, sing, snake, snow even Santa!!!

We decided that it was about time we started thinking about Santa and Christmas, so we wrote letters to let Santa know what we would like for Christmas. We all wrapped up warmly and walked down to the post box to post the letters. I wonder if he will reply?

The afternoon children were joined by an unexpected visitor at the post box...

The Gingerbread Man in Nursery

User Rating:  / 0

Continuing our theme of traditional Tales, this week we have been reading The Gingerbread Man in Nursery.gingerbread man books small

Many of our activities have focused on the Gingerbread Man character. We have created a textured Gingerbread Man and made a decoration for our Christmas Trees using salt dough. Mrs Parkes has baked these in the oven so that they are really hard, and next week we are going to paint them to make them beautiful!

Our "Letter of the Week" table has been bursting at the seams again this week. The children are so enthusiastic about bringing things in that begin with our special, focus letter. Check the Nursery newsletter to see what's coming up!

Hint: next week it's "s".

Nursery Rhymes in Nursery!

For the past few weeks we have been encouraging the children to write, write, WRITE! We have seen a huge improvement in the children's awareness of writing around them, and in their confidence to have a go!

Well done children - keep it up!

This week we have been focusing on Nursery Rhymes and have had a lot of fun... We have been on a Spider Hunt looking for Incy Wincy, made Humpty Dumpty puppets,  traced Incy Wincy's web and much, much more...

We now also have a Puppet Theatre in Nursery, so we have been able to put on shows. Pop in and see one sometime!

 We found leaves, acorns and conkers!

We read a book by Helen Cooper called Pumpkin Soup.

This gave us the fabulous idea of making our own pumpkin soup! We used pumpkin, carrots, parsnips, potatoes, swede and onions to make a tasty soup that we shared.

Maybe our activities in nursery will inspire some future masterchefs!

We talked about what we liked to do with our friends and recorded this on our own Rainbow Fish scales.

We are hoping that mums and dads may like to make some more biscuits at home!


The Large Family visit Nursery

This week in nusery the children have been thinking about families and in particular "The Large Family." In the story "A Piece of Cake" by Jill Murphy, Mrs Large was trying to keep healthy.The children then thought about exercise and healthy eating and even made some healthy sandwiches. Yummy!

Later in the week the children made Mrs Large an apron and decorated it with "soft" and "fluffy" decorations.

I wonder whether the children can find any more Large Family stories at home or in the library?

This week in Nursery we haven't let the rain spoil our fun... When we haven't been able to go outside, we have been able to use our "spare" room for some exciting songs and parachute games.

We have been thinking about our changing seasons and have started collecting interesting things for our Autumn Nature Table!

All the Nursery Staff are really pleased with how the children have continued to settle down. Everyone is trying really hard to be independent. Well done!

Welcome to Nursery!

We have had  a wonderful start to the year in Nursery. All of our children are coming into Nursery and leaving with smiles on their faces!

We have managed to play outside every day (nearly) and the children are really enjoying our new Role Play shed situated in the Nursery garden.

Inside, Nursery looks wonderful with lots of colourful pictures and paintings on the wall already.

Keep checking the blog to see our exciting activities.

What a fantastic week!

User Rating:  / 0

We have been very busy this week performing our show. On Tuesday we performed to Reception and Key Stages 1 and 2. They were a brilliant audience and we think they enjoyed the show.

On Thursday we performed for the final time to our mums, dads, grandmas, grandads, aunties, uncles and loads more people who we had invited. It was brilliant (although rather hot) and everyone laughed and applauded and even cheered. It was a real celebration of our fantastic time in nursery. Mrs Parkes, Mrs Hollis and Mrs Ruffle are very proud.

Now we are getting ready to have our long summer holiday - we have already said goodbye to Mrs Parkes who won't see us again until after the holiday.

Our teachers want to say a big thank you for all the presents, cards and thanks that they have received over the past couple of days.
