W.B. 19.02.24 Goldilocks and the Three Bears


This week in Nursery we have read the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have been working hard to build chairs and beds using the wooden blocks, painting bears using forks to create their fur and retelling the story in the home corner using masks. The children have really enjoyed pretending to be the different characters and repeating the lines from the story in different voices! We had fun exploring the porridge oats using different tools and containers. In group time, we have also looked at different materials and sorted them out into hard and soft. 


W.B. 29.01.24 Little Red Riding Hood


This week in Nursery we have continued with our topic 'Once upon a Time' by looking at the story of Little Red Riding Hood. We have been busy building traps using the Lego to try and capture the wolf, writing 'Get Well Soon' cards for Granny and practising our scissor skills by carefully cutting out the items to put into the basket. We also played a track game where we had to roll the dice and then move the counter along the path to Granny's house. The children did so well at subitising and saying how many spots they could see, without having to count them. We had a carpet session about 'Safer Strangers' and discussed whether we thought Little Red Riding Hood should've talked to the Wolf.

This week we have been learning about the story of 'Stickman.' We have enjoyed using natural materials to create our own pictures, mark making with sticks and using sticks to make flags for our sandcastles! We have also continued our work on repeating patterns by making some using leaves, conkers, sticks etc. 


Following our visit to Glebefield's library last week, the children have also been enjoying exploring the books that they selected to bring back to school with us.

W.B 27.11.23 Healthy Eating


What another fantastic week we've had in Nursery! We have been reading the story of 'Supertato' and thinking about the importance of eating a healthy, balanced diet. During focus time, we have enjoyed role playing in our fruit and vegetable shop, designing our own super vegetables and making them using the potato heads! We have also taken part in a science activity around melting and have thought about how we could save the fruits and vegetables frozen in the ice by putting some warm water on them or holding them in our hands. In Maths this week, we have been learning all about patterns and have practised making some using the different coloured cubes.

W.B 20.11.23 Our Bodies


This week Nursery have enjoyed looking at a non-fiction book all about our body. We have learnt the names of lots of different body parts and discussed how we can take care of our bodies by keeping clean and leading a healthy lifestyle. We had lots of fun learning the song 'Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes' and joining in with the actions. In focus time, we have been creating skeleton pictures using straws, working together to wash the babies and role playing in our doctors. For homework this week, we have also sent home tooth brushing charts for you to complete at home with your child.

W.B 13.11.23 Diwali


We've had another exciting week in Nursery learning about the celebration of Diwali. We read the story 'Peppa's Diwali' and found out about how Peppa Pig celebrated the festival of light by enjoying some yummy food and having fireworks with her family. During focus time, we have been creating our own diya lamps, mehndi and rangoli patterns using different media and materials including loose parts, chalk and felt tip pens. In PE, we used the ribbon sticks to make firework movements by creating large circles in the air, swirling around or jumping up and down!

W.B 6.11.23 - Autumn


This week in Nursery we have been learning all about the season of Autumn. We read the story called 'Squirrels Busy Day' about a squirrel who was busy collecting lots of acorns! We enjoyed going on a walk around the school grounds to look out for signs of Autumn and collected lots of crunchy leaves to explore. We had to wrap up warm as the weather is starting to get a lot colder now! When we got back into the classroom, we had a delicious hot chocolate to warm back up. In focus time, we had lots of fun drawing pictures of the things we noticed on our walk, creating using the playdough and practising using scissors to cut up the leaves that we found.


W.B 2.10.23 Matching in Maths

W.B 25.09.23 What Friends Do Best


We have been learning about being good friends and working together as a team this week in Nursery. We enjoyed reading a story about a dog called Winston who was trying to build a rocket, all by himself! In Focus Time, we have enjoyed working together to build our own rockets using the Duplo, creating marks in the glitter trays and creating our own space themed pictures on black paper. We have continued to learn about colours in Maths and have practised sorting the different coloured bears into their rockets.

W.B 18.09.23 The Colour Monster


This week in Nursery, we have enjoyed learning about the story 'The Colour Monster.' We have been talking about our feelings and using the mirrors to help us show different emotions on our faces. We created our own monsters using different coloured stickers and made faces using the playdough. In Maths, we have been learning to recognise different colours and have been sorting objects by colour. We had lots of fun playing with coloured rice and different containers and tools. This week, we have also introduced the children's self registration pictures and they will now be asked to put their photo into the pot to show whether they are feeling happy or sad when they arrive at Nursery each day.
