Trip to Hatton Country World

What a fantastic day!

On Tuesday a group of nearly seventy of us: children, parents/carers and teachers set off for Hatton Country World in Warwickshire. Despite a lot of traffic we were in high spirits as we arrived...

We were so lucky with the weather as it was a beautiful sunny day making it possible to enjoy all of the facilities at Hatton...

There were animals to feed and mountains to climb... well maybe not mountains, but we had great fun!

Inflateable small

Strange we didn't see our teachers slide down the inflateable. Maybe they weren't brave enough!

Living Things

User Rating:  / 1

This half term we are thinking and learning all about Living Things.

We planted cress seeds and even made a tiny scarecrow so that the birds would stay away. These seeds have now grown into something that we can eat!

We have learned all about what plants need to grow and looked around our school environment for different sorts of plants.

We have had an amazing week working with ICT and having a great time with our learning!

Using the microwave we made jelly - well, our letter of the wek was j! We were amazed that the microwave did what we told it by giving it instructions!

we also had our very own "Nursery's Got Talent" stage where we tried out the Easyspeak microphones and the cameras.

A favourite, particularly with the boys, was when we used the Remote Controlled cars.

People Who Help Us in the Community

User Rating:  / 0

For the past couple of weeks we have had a really busy time thinking about all the people who help us in our communities.

We have had many visits including a nurse who brought a first aid kit with lots of bandages in, a dietician who told us which foods were good for us and which were not so good and a fireman who showed us some special heat resistant clothing. We have learned so much and had some fun too! Look at us trying on the fireman's clothes...

We have learned about the role of a dentist and how to clean our teeth properly.

We would like to thank our visitors for coming in to see us. 

People Who Help Us at School

User Rating:  / 0

We have continued our People Who Help Us topic, but have been thinking particularly about the people who help at school.

We have been very lucky with lots of visits and visitors this week...

We popped down to the kitchen to see what Mrs Kingston our cook was doing and while we were there we enjoyed a snack of toast!

Mr Horne came in to tell us about his work and we were even able to help him by picking up some litter and mending some broken things.

Tools small

Mrs Hawksworth took us into the school garden where she has a shed with lots of gardening tools and we planted some seeds. It's important work to make the school look beautiful!

Mrs H visit small

Mrs Juniper came into to talk about the Walking Bus and other ways of keeping safe around roads and traffic. We had lots of fun dressing up as Lollipop people and crossing people over on our zebra crossing.

This week we began our new topic which is People Who Help Us and in particular who helps us at home? The children have been cooking, cleaning and washing for much of the week!

This week has been both busy and exciting in Nursery with two Dress Up days!

We have many more piarate activities planned for the coming weeks so look out for more photographs next time.

We also celebrated World Book Day on Thursday and dressed as our favourite book characters for the day. We were able to choose a book to take home in our "Book Swap Shop", made book marks and shared our favourite stories with Year 3. What's more, every child was given a voucher to spend at a book shop worth £1!

It was great to see our old friends from Ten Town once again like King One and Tommy Two and we are really impressed with how many of our children that can count, recognise and match numbers and write their numbers correctly too. Well done to Nursery!

We have been amazed to find so many shapes and numbers in and around our environments. I wonder if the children will spot any at home or out and about ? Please come and tell us about your investigations...

Celebrate it's the Year of the Goat

User Rating:  / 1

This week we have been learning about how Chinese New Year is celebrated. We found out how the quarrelling animals decided who the year would be named after - by having a race... 2015 is the year of the goat or sheep!

We held our own Dragon Dance Parade in the playground.

We were able to provide our own "Chinese style" music for our dragon to dance to...

Obviously no celebration is complete without some special food! The children were really keen and enthusiastic to try everything on the menu!

We have done many other exciting things including making dragon puppets, lanterns, a role play Chinese restaurant, sending New Year cards and counting coins into lucky red envelopes. As always our work has been supported by ICT...
