  • Happy Birthday!

    This week we have been learning all about birthdays. We talked about when our birthday is and how we celebrate it. 
    We learnt how to make cupcakes. We added the ingredients to a bowl, mixed it and baked the cupcakes. We finally decorated them with buttercream and decorated sprinkles.
     
  • Remember, Remember…

    Over the last 2 weeks we have been learning about different important events. 
    We learnt about bonfire night and we created amazing firework paintings with toilet rolls. We also learnt about remembrance day and the poppy. The children used potatoes to print and create poppies as well joining in with the 2 minute silence.
     
  • Happy Diwali!

    This week Nursery have been learning all about Diwali. Mrs Cooper drew out a rangoli pattern and added coloured rice. The children also were able to add rice to the rangoli designs. We also made diva lamps using salt dough and painted them. Finally we made Diwali cards for the families who celebrate Diwali.
     
  • Is there a doctor in the house?

    This week Nursery have been learning about different occupations. We have been learning about doctors, paramedics and people who work in hospitals. Our role play has changed into a hospital and we have enjoyed dressing up.

    We also took part in an activity where we put plasters on a person where they hurt themselves.

  • Friends and Family

    This week in Nursery we have been learning about family. The children created pictures of their family selecting all the people that live in their home. We have also been making lots of friends and learning our friends names.
     
  • Harvest Week

    This week in Nursery we have been learning about Harvest in the UK. We watched videos of vegetables being harvested. We have also really enjoyed playing with puzzles, painting and playing in the construction area.

  • First time in Nursery

    Ducklings have a had a great first full week in Nursery. The children have enjoyed exploring the sand pit in the garden and the climbing equipment. They have really enjoyed their morning busy fingers activities using tweezers to pick up pom poms, using cutters on the play dough and building enormous structures with construction bricks.
