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....

Sunflowers

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.

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".

This week has been another busy one in Nursery with much excitement as we approach Easter and the holidays!

Take a look at our Easter Bonnets that we proudly paraded in front of our parents!Easter bonnet 1 smallEaster bonnet 2 smallEaster bonnet 3 small

We have also been working hard to make our garden look tidy. We have planted some flowers and even painted our picnic tables!

The results are fantastic though. We are sure that you will agree that our garden looks lovely? We are looking forward to some sunny weather after Easter so that we can get outside more often!

Have a Happy Easter!

Each group of children experienced a Tots Tennis session similar to the ones that the coaches deliver on Sunday mornings at the Tennis Club. The children responded really well and everyone had a great time. ..

Today your child has come home with a certificate from the coaches, as well as a letter that outlines costs/timings etc should anyone be interested in any further sessions.

Next week we will be focussing on our Easter activities and looking forward to the holiday!

This week our "Letter of the Week" has also been "f" so we have been able to do many fishy activities!

We are looking forward to celebrating Easter with our Easter Bonnet Parade on Wednesday 9th April so if you haven't made your bonnets at home yet, you still have time to do so!

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
