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.

Well... the photos speak for themselves! The children have had such fun this week with their Christmas Parties on Tuesday and performing their Show to a packed audience on Thursday. They have made all the staff very proud and most definitely deserve a good rest over the holiday.

See you in 2014!

A Walk to the Postbox

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 have been on an Autumn walk this week searching for "Autumn Treasure."Autumn walk small

 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.

The Large Family visit Nursery

User Rating:  / 0

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?
