Below you will find some activities that you may find useful and enjoyable for your child.
Spring 2 2019/2020
The topic in Nursery this half term has been growing - the children came up with some brilliant ideas of what grows such as tomatoes, hair, nails, flowers and grass! We looked closely at cress seeds and made some amazing cress heads. The children looked after their cress heads by spraying them with water and placing next to a window for sunlight. We also looked at ourselves and how we change and grow. Our favourite activity was when we celebrated Shrove Tuesday, we made pancakes and chose from yummy toppings - jam, chocolate sauce and sugar! To practise our counting we made a Spring paper chain, every day we cut one of the loops and counted how many were left - it showed us how long we had to wait for Spring to arrive. The children loved this activity so much we made another paper chain for the countdown to Easter Sunday. Another busy half term in Nursery!
Spring 1 2019/2020
Our topic for this half term has been pets and animals around the world! We have had so much fun playing in our Vets role play and painting pictures of pets we would like to have. We enjoyed reading Hairy Maclary and meeting all his friends - these books really helped us with our rhyming! Nursery had a visit from Animal Antics and met lots of different animals such as a hedgehog, a chicken, a tortoise and even a snake!
Autumn Term 2 2019/2020
Our topic for this half term is 'Who is Winnie? We have been really busy learning about Winnie the Witch and enjoying playing in her house and making wands and broomsticks in a variety of ways. We continue to have lots of practise at recognising and writing our names. To keep active in Nursery we continue to enjoy our outdoor area and have been doing Go Noodle every morning - our favourite song/dance this half term is 'Dinosaur Stomp' and we have continued our PE lessons on a Wednesday. The children have been getting ready for our Christmas sing along and look forward to a school trip at 'Seven Stories'.
Autumn Term 1 2019/2020
We have had a great start to the academic year! We are so proud of how all the children have settled in. Our topic for this half term is 'What Makes Me, Me? We have been really busy learning about ourselves, who is in our family and our 5 senses. We have had lots of practise at recognising our names and will continue to do this next term. To keep active in Nursery we have been doing Go Noodle every morning - our favourite song/dance is 'Milkshake' and we have even started our PE lessons on a Wednesday. Well done to all the Nursery children - I can't wait for next half term and all the fun learning we will have!
Summer Term 2017/18
What another busy term we have had! Our two topics this term have been 'What Goes And Flows?' and 'What Can We Explore?' The children greatly enjoyed exploring the use of guttering with water, balls and toy cars during our first topic. During the second half of the summer term the children have been keen jungle explorers! They have explored different animal prints and used these to produce some fabulous camouflage themed art work.
The children who are moving into our Reception class have been enjoying their transition sessions and Reception staff report that they are settling into the environment very well!
With just a couple of weeks left we are looking forward to sports day and our Early Years fun day.
Mrs Rumney, Mrs Kay and I (Mrs Getlevog) would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents and carers of our children, for all of their support and cooperation over the year. We would also like to thank the children for all of their hard work this year and for making Nursery a fun, enjoyable and happy place to be. We wish you all well in your move to Reception. Those of you who are returning after the holidays, we look forward to welcoming you into Nursery again in September!
Spring Term 2017/2018
What a busy term we have had! The children have enjoyed two different topics this term 'Who Helps Me?' and 'What Can We Learn From Sticks And Stones?'
In our first topic the children enjoyed thinking about the different people who help us. They also enjoyed comparing these people to the different Paw Patrol characters and inventing a new member of Paw Patrol! The topic was finished with a 'hands on' session led by a nurse. It was great fun!
During our second topic we based a lot of our work on different stories - 'Stone Soup' and 'The Three Little Pigs'. The children also enjoyed collecting, drawing with, getting creative with and building with sticks! Making nests was a particular favourite!
We ended our busy term with an Easter themed 'Stay and Play' session and a very enjoyable trip to the farm!
Autumn 1 2017/2018
Our new Nursery children are settling into Nursery and the routines involved really well! They are taking the time to get to know each other and the Nursery staff. We have enjoyed finding out about each other, our families and our likes and dislikes. More recently we have been 'shape detectives' finding common 2D shapes in our indoor and outdoor environment.
