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!

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.

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.

A Healthy Week in Nursery

This week we have been thinking about how we can stay healthy.

We have visited the Health Caravan where we found out how important it is to eat fruit and vegetables to keep our bodies healthy. We met a new friend Harold the Giraffe.

In nursery we have made Ginger Bear a healthy lunchbox, bandaged our poorly teddies in the Teddy Bear Hospital, bathed the babies in the Baby Clinic and made delicious fruit kebabs!

We held our very own Sports Day and everyone raced with their friends in the sunshine. We celebrated with an ice cold lolly (thanks from the PTA) before going home for a week-end of SUN!

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside!

We have had a wonderful time this week in Nursery going on our holidays to the seaside. We have learned all about the sights and sounds of the good old British seaside. We have enjoyed making ice-creams, packing our suitcases, painting beach huts and having our own Punch and Judy shows. We are amazed that the sun has even shone for us this week too!

Nursery have had such fun this week learning about Camping !!

We have made lists of the things we need to take on a camping adventure, sewn sleeping bags for the teddies to keep them warm and enjoyed our campsite role-play area.

We also made our own sandwiches for our camping picnic. The children were expert sandwich makers, spreading the butter and then the jam or cheese.

We had a lovely picnic with all of our friends and our sandwiches were very yummy.

Transport in the Nursery

Our new topic this week in Nursery has been Transport.

The children have really enjoyed talking about all the different types of transport they know, from cars and trains to submarines and limousines !!  Our role-play area is now a school bus,  we have floated boats in the marina and built complicated train tracks for the trains.

We have really enjoyed the sunshine which has allowed us to be outside exploring different types of transport, looking for aeroplanes and counting and tallying cars in the car-park. ***COOL***

We have also enjoyed looking at and sorting 'old and new transport', the children thought some of the old planes and bikes were very funny ! ***SMILE***
