Morning Nursery

Spring 2 Week beginning 29th March

Happy Easter!

 

This week we have had lots of fun creating Easter crafts.  We have made cards for someone special and Easter hats.  We have also been on an Easter Egg Hunt!

Welcome to Nursery!

 

Miss Neal, Mrs Chawner and Miss Farley look forward to welcoming you!

 

In Nursery, we love to learn through exploring our environment and sharing what we know. We have lots of exciting learning spaces which are developed from our children’s interests and needs. If you visited our Nursery you would see children who are purposeful, calm, confident and independent. You would see adults moving to where the children are engaged and interacting with them as they play.

 

Your school journey starts here, working together as partners. We will guide you through an amazing year, preparing you to make the enormous step into full time education. Your Nursery year will include an amazing curriculum bursting with rich learning opportunities, educational visits, winter productions and ‘Learn Together’ sessions, where you can come into school with your child to share their learning experiences.

 

Week beginning 22nd March

This week we have been looking for signs of Spring.  We enjoyed going on a walk and found some interesting things growing.  We have made some super Spring time pictures.

 

       

 

                            

 

 

Week Beginning 8th March

This week we have been celebrating Mother's Day by making a card and presents for our Mum's.  We threaded some beads to make a bracelet and planted a flower. 

We also explored the plants by looking at them carefully.  We noticed they had roots, leaves and flowers.  We found out that they needed compost, water and sunshine to help them grow.

Nursery Noticeboard

 

 

Home Learning Tasks will sent home on a Thursday.  Please return Home Learning books on a Monday so that new work can be given.

 

Library Books - Each week your child will have two books to take home.   A picture book and a story book.  Both books are to help your child develop an interest in books, and increase their understanding and vocabulary.  Children will keep these books at home for a week and return them on a Friday when they can choose new books.

 

Water Bottles -  Children are required to bring a water bottle each day.  Your child will have access to their bottle during the session in order to keep hydrated.  Please label the bottle clearly with your child's name.

 

IMPORTANT - PLEASE ENSURE YOUR CHILD'S CLOTHING IS CLEARLY LABELLED TO AVOID LOSS OR CONFUSION.

September 2020

A warm welcome back to our previous afternoon children who will now be attending Nursery during the morning session.  We have missed you all!  We also welcome our new children starting Nursery and look forward to an exciting time together.

Capturing the Learning in Nursery

Week beginning 19th October 2020

 

This week we have been celebrating harvest.  We have been singing and dancing to harvest songs.  We have also been exploring fruit and vegetables.  We have drawn some super pictures of the fruit and vegetables that we looked at.

                                  

 

                                                    

 

We had lots of fun making a scarecrow.  We made a nurse scarecrow!  Thank you nurses for helping us!

One School, One Book The Tin Forest

Throughout school we have been exploring The Tin Forest story.  In Nursery we have been exploring forests and their habitat.  Using our creative skills we have created a forest picture.

 

                     

 

 

Week beginning 14th September

This week we introduced our Reading Spine book Where's Spot?  We have really enjoyed this story.  We have had lots of fun pretending to be the animals and making animal pictures.

                         

                                     

Week beginning 21st September

This week we have been enjoying our Reading Spine story Where's Spot.  We have been looking at the different animals in the story and thought about where they would like to live.  We have been choosing our favourite animal in the story.

 

 

 

Week beginning 28th September

This week we have had fun getting to know our new friends.  We have played lots of games together.  We gave also been telling each other about the things we like to do.

Week beginning 5th October

This week we have been thinking about what we look like.  We looked into a mirror and thought about what we could see.  We have painted a portrait of our ourselves.smiley

 

                              

 

                              

 

                             

 

      

 

Week beginning 12th October 

This week we have enjoyed the story Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?  by Bill Martin Jr / Eric Carle.

 

                                                              

 

We have been thinking about our useful ears and explored different sounds.  We went on a listening walk outdoors and heard lots of different things.  We heard the birds singing, the wind blowing the trees, children playing, and cars.  We created our own sounds in the outdoor area and found we could make lots of different sounds.
