  World Book Day
Our nursery children had a wonderful time celebrating world book day. We shared lots of stories, role played as our characters and used a Venn diagram to sort ‘heroes’ and ‘villains’!
   

 

Autumn Term 2020-2021

Autumn activities

Outdoor Learning

Playing outdoors gives us the ability to learn about the world around us through first hand experiences

 

Nursery children enjoy activities that enable them to develop skills across the curriculum. Here are some photographs of our successful artists, geographers and mathematicians!

 

We observed baby chicks hatching from the egg. First of all they arrived from the farm in an incubator, we watched the ‘pipping’ process as they slowly immersed from the egg. Then we cared for them for 2 weeks! Finally, once they were strong enough, we were able to feel their soft feathers as we held them gently. Alongside this, we read the story Handa’s Hen and explored which other creatures laid eggs. A wonderful experience for our children as they settle into Nursery life. 

Spring Term 2019-2020

Nursery have been working scientifically and noticing seasonal changes. We are focusing our ‘ growing’ topic around the story ‘Jasper’s Beanstalk’ and we have already made links to so many different stories. We are retelling then innovating and changing the ending of the story using our Talk 4 Writing actions 📖

The Nursery Bedtime Story
 
Wow! Thank you to all of the parents and children who attended our spring time Nursery bedtime story event to enjoy lots of book related fun.

Nursery have been making pancakes to mark Shrove Tuesday. They were so sensible, weighing out and mixing the ingredients before squeezing lemons 🍋 for the toppings. They were then able to sample these and even made some for the lovely ladies in the office 🥰 🥞 🍳

Nursery children enjoy welly walks in all weathers!

Autumn Term 2019 -20

Nursery nativity

This week Nursery children have had their very first experience of performing on the school stage. They sang traditional carols to a large audience, they were loud and extremely proud! Well done everyone. 

Reading in Nursery
 
 
Children in Nursery enjoy shared reads as well as Bedtime story events after school with parents.
 
Our Nursery Learning Journey in Autumn 2
 
Our stories this half term taken from the Pi Corbett Reading Spine were Come on, Daisy. Dear Zoo and Stickman!
We have enjoyed a visit from the firefighters in their engine and a visit from the road safety team. We have spoke about safety on bonfire night and made marks to represent what we had seen at displays. 

Nursery children have been working hard to create craft to sell at our Christmas enterprise.

Remembrance Day
Nursery children enjoyed a range of poppy themed activities on Remembrance Day including mixing colours and painting poppies on our outdoor easel, making poppies in our dough and making biscuits. We did a fantastic job managing our behaviour during the 2 minute silence.
 
Safety week and Science
Nursery have enjoyed our whole school Safety Week. We have been talking about staying safe out and about with our adults through the story ‘Come on, Daisy!’. We have also had a visit from the local firefighters in their fire engine as well as our road safety team who helped us learn about crossing safely on foot and on our bikes and scooters. We worked scientifically to  consider why emergency service men, women and vehicles are often seen in bright, reflective colours. We investigated why this is especially important when they are working at night in the dark. We turned out the lights and discussed our observations of the safety uniforms
These are some of their responses were ” They shine so bright ” “I can still see it!” ” WOW!” 
Our areas of the provision this week built on this experience as we dressed up in the uniforms and considered the materials we used to collage our emergency vehicles ( and more!)
 

Nursery children work scientifically by exploring the world around them first hand. We observe and experience the changing seasons and no obstacle gets in our way,  come rain or shine we will play!

We were so pleased that all of our nursery parents were able to attend our Art Exhibition on Wednesday this week. Thank you for your support, it was a great success and a fantastic celebration of the children’s work
