Celebrating Bonfire Night – Autumn 2, Week 1

This week in Nursery, we have been looking at how Bonfire Night is celebrated. We watched videos of fireworks, listening carefully to the sounds that the fireworks make and the beautiful colours that we can see. Then we made some colourful fireworks pictures using glue and sand. Keep a look out on the weekend for beautiful fireworks, but if you don’t see any come into Nursery and look at our lovely pictures!

Our Class Charter – Autumn 1, Week 5

This week we created our class charter. We know that everyone has right to learn, be safe and be respected, so we thought about the things that we can do to make that happen. We decided that the following things are important in our class:
-In Nursery we are good friends.
-We play nicely and share our toys.
-We make sure that everyone is safe by picking up our toys and keeping our classroom tidy.
-We make sure that we listen to the teachers and our friends.
-Nursery children always try their best!

Here is our class charter.

Colourful Creations – Autumn 1, Week 4

This week in Nursery we have been busy building lovely displays for our classroom. Our main task was to paint self portraits. We looked in the mirror and carefully thought about the colours that we should use.

Look at these wonderful pictures! Do you recognise who they could be?

You will be able to see our lovely displays in class from next week.
