Welcome to Nursery!



Spring 1 has flown by and I can't believe how much the children have accomplished; we have taken part in the fluoride varnish programme, celebrated Chinese New Year, had stories read to us by the librarian and from Richard Drake.  On top of all that we have been learning all about different transport and have created some fantastic models.  The children are really trying hard with their social skills and are becoming confident in knowing and understanding the golden rules.  It has been a pleasure to watch the children plan activities for their own play and this has led to lots more mark making!  We hope you have a fun filled half term and we are looking forward to our next topic all about eggs!

Spring term has started well and the children have returned ready and raring to go!  This half term we will be finding out all about various forms of transport and we will be hopefully going on a trip.  Please have a read at our planning so you know what your child be doing each week.

I'm sure we will see snow at some point so the planning may change to focus on the weather but I will keep you informed via Marvellous Me.

We will be celebrating  Chinese New Year this half term and hopefully tasting lots of tasty Chinese food.

Autumn Two Reflection.

Well, what can I say but THANK YOU for all your support this half term and all of the beautiful and tasty treats that have been lovingly made and brought in to share.  It has been a very busy half term but the children have coped so well and have made lots of progress. 

We have celebrated lots of things such as Diwali, Bonfire Night, Birthdays, Christmas and a whole load more, we have tasted food from around the world and read stories about food; our favourite being Handa's Surprise!

The children worked so hard in learning songs for our Christmas production and I'm sure you were as proud as we were.

I hope you all have a fantastic Christmas and I look forward to what 2019 brings!

Welcome to the Autumn 2 term, take a look at all the exciting things we have planned for the coming weeks as we lead up to Christmas.  Our focus is food and celebrations and will be around books such as Handa's Surprise, The Tiger Who Came To Tea and many other food based stories.  The celebrations we will be learning about are Bonfire Night, Diwali, Remembrance Day and Christmas.  Of course, there will be an opportunity for you to join us for a parent stay session and more details will follow.

Autumn one has been very busy and very exciting for us as we have settled into nursery and made new friends.  During session times we have been finding out all about Autumn.  This has included playing with leaves and small world toys, counting cookers, leaf printing and reading lots of Autumn books.

we have also been thinking about the words full and empty and have been very busy creating potions and fairy perfumes.

We have had visits from the Fire Brigade, Dental Health Team, Richard Drake and a storyteller from the library. We also took park in Harvest festival and saying thank you to God for food and crops.
