Autumn 2, Week 6 – It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Stars of the Week: Tehya and Annabella

Well done to Tehya and Annabella for listening carefully to the initial sounds in words when writing their Christmas lists!

This week in Nursery we have continued learning and thinking about Christmas! In English we used our phonic knowledge to listen out for the initial sounds in words when writing our Christmas lists!

In RE we learnt about the different symbols of Christmas, including the star, the wreath and the tree. We chose our favourite symbol and spoke about why we liked it:

“We have a star at home in the Christmas tree” – Jonah
“There are presents under the tree and a star on the top” – Grace
“The presents go under the tree. I help my mum” – Charles

We also made some angels using wooden pegs, paper plates, paint and glitter. They have made a beautiful Christmas window display!

Stars of the week – Spring 2 Week 1

Lenni and Leonardo

Well done to Lenni and Leo, who both showed great enthusiasm making the pancakes yesterday! They were both able to talk about the ingredients we used, and how the pancakes were made. Both children enjoyed eating their pancakes, and chose raisins as their favourite topping!

Well done to both children!


Learning for next week:

We are very excited to celebrate Book Week next week, and will be taking part in lots of different book week activities. Our sound in Phonics will be ‘c’, and we will be problem solving in Maths.

Shrove Tuesday in Nursery!

Yesterday in Nursery we learnt all about Shrove Tuesday and why this is an important time for Christians. We learnt new words including ‘Lent’ and ‘Ash Wednesday’.

We had an exciting morning, making our own pancakes and eating them at snack time! We all helped to pour in the ingredients and mix it all together. Some of us had raisin pancakes, and some of us had lemon and sugar. They were delicious!

Autumn 2, Week 7 – Christmas in Nursery!

Stars of the Week: All of Nursery!
Well done to all of Nursery for your wonderful Nativity performance! You sang with lots of enthusiasm and lots of Christmas cheer! Miss Bailey, Miss Godsell and Debbie are very proud of you all!

We hope that you all enjoyed watching the children perform in The Nativity on Wednesday! We are extremely proud of the way in which they sang and performed the actions with such confidence!

Thank you for joining us at our Christmas Stay & Play. It was wonderful to see so many parents in attendance, and the children really enjoyed having you all here to take part in our Christmas craft activities!

Please take a look at some photos from Stay & Play!

Next Week: We will be reflecting on all of the learning that we have done so far this year! We will also be wearing our Christmas Jumpers on Wednesday for the whole school Christmas Jumper day (£2 donation per child). On Thursday we will have an exciting afternoon as its our class party! What a busy week ahead!

Autumn 2 – Week 2

Pop! Bang! Whizz! Firework fun!

This week in Nursery, we have been learning about Bonfire Night. We talked about how fireworks look in the sky, and the colours they make! We also thought carefully about the noises made by fireworks, such as bang!, boom! and fizz!

We made our own firework pictures, by drizzling glue over black card, and sprinkling neon sand over the top! Take a look at our fabulous firework pictures below!

A leaf man’s got to go where the wind blows!

We continued to think about the changes that happen in Autumn this week. After reading Leaf Man, we talked about the different places he could blow to, and what he might see. We made our own leaf men with the leaves we collected from the playground!

Stars of the Week – Paraskevi and Adeel!

Well done to Paraskevi and Adeel, who worked hard to make their leaf men. They talked about where he might blow to and what he might see. Great effort, Paraskevi and Adeel!


Next week in Nursery…

In Phonics we will be learning the sound ‘p’. We will also be listening for the initial sounds in words starting with s, a and t. In Maths we will be ordering numbers up to 10. In addition we will be learning about Remembrance Day and thinking about how we celebrate Birthdays. Also in another busy week we will also be joining the rest of the school to celebrate Spanish Day on Thursday (Parents will have received a separate email with details).




Autumn 1 – Week 7

Old MacDonald Had A Farm – DT Week in Nursery!

In Nursery we used our Phase 1 Phonics learning about Environmental Sounds and the nursery rhyme ‘Old MacDonald Had A Farm’ to inspire us to make farm animals.

We used paper plates that we painted, as well as card to add the head and legs to our animals. We put the head on a split pin to make sure that our animals had movement!


Stars of the Week – Menata and Leonardo

Well done to Menata and Leo, who both did a great job painting their animals, talking about the colours they would need to use. They were also able to talk about how their animals were made, and what they liked best about them. Well done Menata and Leo!

After the half term break we will be learning:About the ‘a’ sound, and we will be thinking about Autumn and the changes in the seasons

Super strong fingers!

Developing the children’s fine motor skills is an important and essential part of the Early Years curriculum. The children take part in fine motor skills daily, within the Nursery classroom.

This week we have been using tweezers to sort pom-poms into colour groups, as well as threading beads!


Summer 2 Week 7 Happy Holidays!

Stars of the Week All of Nursery 

Thank you for being such a super class Nursery. It has been a privilege and pleasure teaching you and wonderful to see how excited and ready you are for Reception.

Your bright, cheerful characters will be greatly missed.

A huge thank you, also, to our parents for all your support, kind wishes and gifts.

Enjoy the Summer Holiday!


Summer 2 Week 6

Stars of the week Heidi and Samuel

Thank you Nursery Class for doing such a good job of looking after the class flower bed.

Although the bulbs, that the children planted, earlier in the year, are finally fading, there are lots of flowers, grasses and new seedlings growing strongly.

There is never a shortage a volunteers, to clear and water the plants, each day, and the children are always mindful to work around the plants carefully.

Well done Heidi for recognising what plants need, to keep them healthy. Whilst Samuel decided to use the bed to plant a seed, that he had found in the playground. What an interesting idea.
