Further Explorations

This week in Nursery we have been exploring again. Look at how much fun we had when we visited the Tyre Park which we "discovered" next to the Pirate Ship!

Visiting the Library

User Rating:  / 0

This week the children have further explored their new environment and visited the library! Every Friday the children will go to our fabulous school library to browse and choose a book to borrow for the week. We would like to encourage all of our parents to share this story with their children and to write a comment in their Reading Record Cards,

Look at how grown up the children are:

Please remember to send your child's library books and cards into Nursery on Friday each week. We have provided a special plastic book bag for this purpose.

All of our Nursery children are enjoying exploring their wonderful new environment. We are very lucky to be able to use the outdoor areas frequently and this week we took advantage of the glorious Autumn sun and played on the bikes and scooters in Reception's playground...

Let's hope the decent weather continues as we have so much more exploring to do. We haven't been to the Pirate Ship or Tyre Park yet!

Welcome to Nursery!

All of our children have settled extremely well into our Nursery and have had a super first few days exploring and making new friends. We have been very impressed with their enthusiasm and behaviour.

Many thanks to our parents who have supported our Induction process, ensuring that their children arrive happy and smiling. We hope that you can see that as they leave us, they are still happy and smiling...

Each week you will find out more about what your child has been doing at Nursery from this blog and see photos of them having a great time as they learn!

Good bye Nursery

User Rating:  / 1

Yesterday the Nursery performed their show Each Peach Pear Plum to a packed hall of mums, dads, grandparents, friends and goodness knows who else!?

The children, once again, did themselves proud... They were spectacular - everyone said so, and enjoyed the performance.

Our travelling bears are off on their holidays- guess where they are going?

yes, they are off to sunny Spain to visit their families - don't worry Verde has not been lost... he has simply caught an earlier flight!

Perhaps they'll come and tell us about their adventures next year...

The nursery team, Mrs Parkes, Mrs Edmunds and Mrs Hampson would like to thank all of our children for being wonderful and their parents for giving us such tremendous support throughout the year. We will really miss all of you!

Have a fantastic holiday and remember to come back to see us next year so we can see if you have grown!

Butterfly Party

This week we have celebrated our Living Things topic by releasing our butterflies in Abigail's Garden. We have watched them grow for many weeks from tiny caterpillars, to larger caterpillars, to cocoons and finally butterflies.

Wonderful Wonderland!

On Tuesday Nursery was closed while 30 children, along with an adult, accompanied Mrs Edmunds and Mrs Hampson to Wonderland in Telford for their end of year trip. The weather was very kind to them as it was sunny ALL DAY!

See how much fun they had...

Everyone was really well behaved (even the teachers) and everyone said that it was a lovely end to a fantastic year!

Our other very exciting news this week is that we have butterflies!! Our caterpillars all became cocoons last week and today another change has happened...

This week in Nursery we have been learning all about the life cycle of butterflies. We have enjoyed listening to and watching the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We have also been watching our caterpillars very closely and have noticed that they are no longer large caterpillars but are now cocoons! We think we know what is going to happen next... We are really excited!

Next week we may have some more news....

This week in Nursery we have been learning all about plants and what they need to grow. We have planted our own sunflower seeds and amazingly, with our care and attention, they have started to grow already!

We have also made some tasty sunflowers...marshmallows small

On Thursday we looked at a very famous painting by Vincent Van Gogh called Sunflowers. We then printed our own sunflower pictures.

These are on display in Nursery and we think they look great. What do you think?

This week in Nursery we have been learning all about how to stay healthy and why this is so important. The children have all met a new friend called Harold the giraffe in the Life Caravan. We had a look through Harold's wash bag and thought about how to stay clean.

We also had a visit from Sainsbury's who came to see our Nursery fruit and vegetable shop. They brought us a lot of real fruit - some of it we had never seen before! We all did our best to taste new things including: melon, kiwi, papaya, mango and pineapple.

With the exception of Wednesday the weather has been good and so we have been able to get outside to practice for Sport's Day and have been thinking about how exercise affects our bodies.

Helping Mr Horne

This week in Nursery we have continued to think about all of the people who help us at school.

We have taken a walk around our school grounds and all agree that they look lovely. We are very grateful to Mr Horne for all his hard work keeping our school looking so smart.

This week we decided to give him a hand with some jobs...

Our nursery garden has never looked so tidy and smart but where did all that litter come from?

Mr Horne even took us to see the School swimming pool and we thought that it looked very exciting. Mr Horne explained how he keeps it looking so good and showed us how he puts a special cover over the water.

Thank you Mr Horne!

Our School Community

We have had a super first week back to Nursery thinking about all the people who help us in school.

We visited Mrs Kingston in the school kitchen and she made us some toast!toast 1 smalltoast 2 small

We ate our toast in the Oaks hall, sitting on the proper lunch tables.

We have also been visiting other people in school who help us. We went to the school library and saw Mrs Juniper sorting some books. We also went to the school office where Mrs Miller was very busy at her computer.

One of our favourite activities this week has been our role play area in Nursery which is currently a school! It has been exciting to pretend to be teachers and to play "schools".
