Learning with Friends

To help us to learn effectively we have three puppet friends in Nursery.

Curious Kitty helps us to concentrate on completing challenges and never give up. Omni Owl helps us to think of ideas, solve problems and find new ways to do things. Charlie Chimp helps us to play, explore and have a go.

We have been working with our puppets to improve our Learning Power. I wonder which friend will help us next week?charlie chimp smallcurious kitty smallomni owl small

Yo ho ho, Pirates!

User Rating:  / 1

This week saw the start of a new and exciting topic in Nursery - Pirates!

On Monday we held a Dressing up day and the children (and staff) were allowed to come to nursery dressed as pirates. We had some fabulous costumes and, more importantly, fun! We started off by answering the register in "pirate speak" which, for those who do not know, is "Aye, aye Captain!"

It looks like these brave pirates are walking the plank!

We have also started receiving some new resources that we ordered using the money raised from our sponsored event, which is fabulous because it means that your children will benefit straight away!

Please refer to Nursery Notices to see the pictures of our new resources.

On World Book Day some of us dressed up as characters from our favourite books and we were able to take part in the "Book Swap Shop" which meant that we all chose a book to take home.

Nursery Sponsored Event

We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all our parents and grandparents who have been so generous today in supporting our sponsored event. Not only did everyone turn up to share the fun with their children or grandchildren, we were overwhelmed with the donations of cakes that we later sold. We have even had some sponsorship money already!

As you can see the children really did enjoy themselves!Jamie small

In Nursery we love reading. We are very fortunate to be able to visit the school library every Friday in order for the children to browse the books before choosing one that they'd like to borrow for the week. Thank you to all the parents who write comments in their child's Reading Record card about their shared learning experience. We really value your imput and the children love to collect stickers!

This week we also held our Parents' Evenings and were delighted to welcome you all into Nursery to talk about your child's progress. It was lovely for us to have so much positive feedback too. We shared the children's Individual Learning Journeys and read their parent comment to them.

This week we continued with our topic about "Bears" and, as our letter of the week was "p", guess who visited Nursery?

Paddington small

It was Paddington Bear!

Much of our work has centered on his visit. For example we considered which material would be best for making Paddinton a waterproof coat. We experimented with different materials.

We also made Paddington's favourite treat... Marmalade sandwiches!

We have also continued to have a huge focus on getting the children writing and are very pleased with their progress and enthusiasm to write. The children are now regularly choosing to write as Harry is doing so.

Happy New Year

We would like to welcome everyone back after what we hope has been a very enjoyable break over Christmas and New Year. Also, once again, many thanks to our children and parents for all their warm wishes, presents and cards as we broke up for the holidays.

This half term our topic is all about bears. We have had some "bear visitors" into nursery this week to join in the fun. Our Teddy bears have enjoyed Wake up, shake up, outdoor play, snacktime, a visit to the library and PE. We have really enjoyed having them with us.

Many of our activities and stories have been about bears and our role play area is the Three Bears cottage.
