Nursery

Week beginning 14th September 2020

 

We are so proud of how amazingly well the Nursery children have settled.  They have been fantastic.  We have been learning lots of new things already.  We have been learning how to share all the great toys with one another, sit quietly and listen to a story, line up sensibly ready to go outside into the garden and of course how to wash our hands!

 

Here are a few photographs of us getting busy!

Welcome to Nursery September 2020

 

We are so excited to be meeting our new Nursery children this week and saying a huge welcome back to those we haven't seen since March.  

Here we all are ready to say hello to you all and have a super time in Nursery!

 

From L to R: Mrs Simpson, Mrs Jones, Mr Anderson and Miss Roberts

One potato, two potato, three potato four!

 

Nursery have been busy planting potatoes in the nursery garden.  We are going to water them regularly and watch them grow!

What a lot of of wet and windy weather!

 

We have been exploring in the puddles.  We have been splashing and stamping and watching how they change before and after the rainy times.

Our focus book has been Little Red Riding Hood

We have been drawing paths through the woods to get to Grandma's house.  This has helped us with continuing to learn how to hold our pens with an efficient grip.

We mad cakes together for Grandma.
We have been very busy learning in lots of different areas in Nursery.  Here are some of the things we have been doing.

Happy New Year 2020!

We hope everybody had a wonderfully festive time over the Christmas period.  Thank you very much for your kind and generous gifts, we really appreciated them.

We are currently welcoming our new starters to Nursery and helping them to settle in.  The big boys and girls are being very kind and showing them how to play in all the different areas.

We have begun our new focus book "Kipper and the Snowy Day" and have been making beautiful winter inspired pictures in the transient are area.

We are busy getting ready for Christmas.  We decorated the tree in Nursery and we all made decorations for the big tree in the hall.
We have been learning about the story of the Little Red Hen.  We decided to make our own bread.  We used a recipe to help us and mixed the ingredients in a bowl.  Then we had to knead the dough for a very long time and our hands got very tired!  We left the bread to rise before putting it in the oven.  It smelt and tasted delicious!
We helped to raise money for Children in Need by having a pyjama day. 

We will remember them

"Poppies" programme on cbeebies

In Nursery we helped the children to recognise that today was a very special day. 

We watched the "Poppies" video on cbeebies and discussed how the rabbit might have felt when the darkness came and afterwards when it was over.   We took part in the two minute silence at 11 am and watched the news.  We talked in simple terms with the children about the importance of remembering and saying thank you to those people who have helped keep our country safe in the past, and still do now.  The children printed poppy pictures and understand that the poppy is a symbol of saying thank you.  

Bonfire Night

We made our own bonfire by cutting strips of paper for the flames and the sticks.
We enjoyed celebrating Bonfire Night.  We watched lots of firework displays on Espresso and we talked about how to keep safe.  It was very exciting being able to see them for ourselves at home with our families.  The next day at Nursery we talked about all the colours we could see, we made our own firework pictures on the ipad and we even danced like fireworks!    
It was Halloween over the half term holiday and when we came back to Nursery we told our friends about dressing up and getting lots of sweets!   We decided to make some Halloween soup with spiders and scorpions (luckily only plastic ones). We used large tweezers to catch the spiders and put them into our soup bowls, counting them out to see how many we had managed to pick up in one minute.

We hope you all had a lovely half term break!

Hairy Maclary

Our focus book has been Hairy Maclary for the last couple of weeks.  Here we are learning how to jump from the hill and land on both feet like Scarface Claw.

We went hunting for Autumn leaves in the copse.  Look what we found!

Our playdough had gone all crumbly so we helped Mrs Jones make some new Autumn inspired playdough.  It was hot!

It was a windy day. We took streamers outside and watched them blow in the wind.

We have been very busy mark making out of doors using chalk, crayons, felt tip pens and rollers and water.

This week we have been singing Hickory Dickory Dock. Look at our fantastic transient art cog pictures.

Transient Art

Lots of children have been exploring the transient art area.  This is where we get creative making pictures by placing objects on paper, but we don't use any glue so we can have a go again and again!

Welcome to Nursery 2019

Our new children have settled beautifully into Nursery.  They are busy exploring and enjoying making new friends.
