Welcome Back!

Thursday, September 17, 2020

Welcome back to Nursery and welcome to the new children who have joined us! This term we are learning about colour with the book ‘Wow said the Owl’. We have begun our display – watch it grow this half-term!

Have a lovely holiday!

Thursday, July 16, 2020

We have had lots of fun learning and playing this half-term and it has been lovely to spend time with the children who returned after the lockdown. The children have adapted very well to the new set up, with extra handwashing and fewer toys. We have spent lots of time outside as well. This week we went on a nature treasure hunt and the children made collages with the things they found. They have had lots of stories inside and in the outside classroom as well. We finished our topic of Splish, Splash, Splosh by talking about swimming and diving. We looked at what divers might need to help them swim underwater and we have had fun pretending to swim and be the creatures we might see in the water during our yoga and stretching sessions. We wish our older children well as they move up into the reception class in September. We look forward to welcoming back our Nursery returners and meeting the new children who will be joining us. Nursery re-opens on 14th September 2020. Have a wonderful summer holiday!

By the Sea!

Thursday, July 9, 2020

As we continue to learn about water, this week we have been looking at the sea. We each made an octopus and counted out its eight legs. We made salt dough starfish and sang ‘Baby Shark’ and our pirate song ‘When I was one I had some fun the day I went to sea…’. We listened out for the ‘n’ sound and looked at lots of books, both fiction and non-fiction. We had lots of fun playing inside and out.

Rivers and Ducks

Thursday, July 2, 2020

Continuing with our topic of Splish, Splash, Splosh, this week we have been learning about rivers and ducks. We have also been focusing on the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff and learning about bridges. Our sound of the week has been ‘i’ and we have been mixing red, yellow and blue to make brown to print our mother ducks. We have been singing ‘Five little ducks went swimming one day’ and lots of other songs.

We worked together on some large scale artwork when we painted a river and we worked together to construct a bridge that would allow cars to go over it and boats underneath. We even became bridges ourselves during our yoga and stretching session! We also found lots of ladybirds outside this week and made a home for them. Some had lots of spots and some none at all. We have had lots of fun!
