Welcome to Nursery!
Hello everyone! Welcome to our Nursery. My name is Miss Little and I am delighted to be your nursery teacher for this year. It has been a pleasure getting to know you all and working with you so far, even despite a tricky few months I can see huge progress and you are all doing so well!
Helping us in Nursery this term will be Abby and we are here to help and support you and we can't wait for a year full of fun activities and lots of exciting learning
Pm Nursery had a fantastic Forest School session last week, we found some dragon eggs that had clues left inside! We then had to use our eyes to find our matching pictures hidden in the trees with partners. Teamwork, communication and patience were so important to succeed. For some of our children this was their first ever Forest School session, Miss Little, Mrs Carlyon and Mr Shaw were so proud of how well the children all participated and at the end we planted some lovely flowers for the start of Spring!
We have loved using the parachute for our outdoor learning in Nursery! At the start we found it super tricky and all of us, (including our teachers!) had super tired arms! However, it was too much fun to give up! We played a range of games including, 'where are the children', where the children all hid underneath the parachute, if you were walking past our school, you would have heard so much laughing and fun! We are going to use the parachute more often to improve our gross motor skills and strengthen our arms ready to be super writers! 🙂
The whole school theme for this half term is 'beds'. In Nursery we have decided to focus our study on different animal beds! We have started our learning journey by researching the lifecycle of a butterfly using our story, 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. We have been looking at what a cocoon is and how the caterpillar uses it as a bed to turn into a beautiful butterfly! We were very lucky that we had some Fairtrade chocolate cups delivered to Nursery as it is Fairtrade Fortnight at the moment. We used the cups, some shredded wheat and golden syrup and chocolate eggs to make a caterpillar inside of the cocoon. It was great fun, super delicious and very messy, but all worth it! We can't wait to keep learning about animal beds and habitats!
A Bucket Full of Love! In Spring 1 we have been learning all about Valentines Day! We have learned the importance of love, kindness, friendship and that love is universal and comes in lots of different shapes and sizes. So on our theme day we all dressed up in our fancy clothes and had a day full of love! We exchanged cards and gifts, made heart biscuits, made and decorated love bugs and made pretty bunches of flowers for our display! Head over to our school Facebook page to see a video movie as we spread some love to you all!
Yummy!! In Nursery we are having the best time learning all about Chinese New Year. We found out that on New Years Eve in China they have a celebration meal with delicious Chinese food. So,we decided to have our own taste test! We loved it, we couldn't believe how delicious the spring rolls were and the crunchy prawn crackers! Daniel said with glee, "Miss Little can we have Chinese every day?!". Miss Little and Abby are so proud of the children in Nursery for trying new foods and being so brave, some of us even found that we loved things we weren't sure about trying! Some boys and girls working at home also tried some delicious Chinese food and the uploaded pictures were a delight to see! We had lots of full tummies and big smiles in Nursery last week! Good work everyone!
I challenge you not to look at these pictures and not smile! Look at how much fun we had on our snowy day at Nursery. The children who are attending our Nursery loved going outside and learning all about winter. We talked about the snow, what the temperature is like, which countries get snow the most and all of the activities we can do in the snow. Our favourite thing to do was lying down and making snow angels, thank goodness Miss Little and Abby remembered to put on our waterproofs and wellies!!
We had a fantastic day celebrating Remembrance Day. We made poppy biscuits, poppy wands and took part in many more activities. We had a 2 minute silence to remember our brave soldiers and we now know all about the importance of Remembrance Day
On Friday 13th November we celebrated Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Light. Take a look at some of the lovely activities that we took part in. We had such an exciting day finished with some chocolate milk around candles! Happy Diwali everyone
In Nursery we love learning, playing and exploring outdoors! In the first few weeks at school we have spent so much time in our outdoor area and you can see how much fun we have had in the lovely sun!
Look below to see how much fun we had during the rainy weather! We got all of our waterproofs on and headed outside. We squeezed lemons in the water tray for super strong fingers, we made HUGE bubbles and we splashed and jumps in the puddles. Our huge smiles say it all
