Easter fun!

Janet Spencer (j.spencer) on: Nursery Blog

This week we have been carrying on with all things Easter! We have been exploring feathers, creating play dough bunnies, making easter bonnets, counting eggs, matching up broken numicon eggs, making the wind up chick jump and completing our Easter cards.



 So much fun was had at our Easter fun day! The Easter bonnets were amazing and we even had a visit from the Easter Bunny!


We hope you all enjoy the half term break and we look forward to seeing you back at Nursery on Monday 19th April.

We're going on an egg hunt!

Janet Spencer (j.spencer) on: Nursery Blog

This week we have been thinking about all things Easter! The children have enjoyed counting eggs, exploring the Easter garden, listening to the Easter story, making Easter cards, decorating eggs, going on egg hunts and even trying some delicious hot cross buns!


We look forward to seeing some fantastic Easter bonnet designs on Wednesday 31st March for our Easter fun day!

Brown bear

Janet Spencer (j.spencer) on: Nursery Blog

This week we have been reading the story 'Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?' The children have enjoyed ordering the story stones, painting the colourful characters, making brown bear masks, making patterns with compare bears and exploring the colours in ice. 


The children all looked amazing on Wednesday for our world book day celebration. We had lots of fun reading stories and doing book scavenger hunts.



Lots of red fun was had on Friday for comic relief! We had red water, we mixed different colours with red, we coloured red noses, we decorated red nose biscuits and talked about where all the money from buying our red noses goes.
We have really enjoyed listening to the jokes from our friends on tapestry too!

I do not eat the colour green

Janet Spencer (j.spencer) on: Nursery Blog

This week we have been reading the story 'I do not eat the colour green.' The children have enjoyed exploring different green vegetables, using vegetables to create pictures, making vegetable soup in the water tray, playing in the green grocers, writing shopping lists and drawing a healthy plate.



We listened to Mr Reid tell us about the whole school art project. We look forward to seeing all the children's repurposed art work, remember our colour is purple.

Reminder: Nursery are having their world book day dress up on Wednesday 17th March. We look forward to seeing everyone's costumes.

On Friday 19th March we will be talking about Red Nose Day. Children are welcome to wear something red and if they know a funny joke that they would like to share with us then please record them and upload it onto tapestry.

Red rockets and rainbow jelly

Janet Spencer (j.spencer) on: Nursery Blog

This week we have been reading the story 'Red Rockets and Rainbow Jelly.' The children have enjoyed designing rockets, colouring aliens, carefully cutting lines and mixing colours. We have also been thinking about the colourful artwork by Kandinsky and have tried to re create our own pictures.


We thought about St David's day on Monday. The children found out about how the people of Wales celebrate the day and we tried to draw some daffodils.

Home Learning

Certainly looks like the Nursery children are having fun learning at home...




A big well done to Lila and Lenny who both received surprise phone-calls from our Deputy Headteacher, Mrs Longley, recently. They have been working so hard at home and are making wonderful progress.

We miss all the children greatly and can't wait to see them all back in school in September in Nursery or in Reception.

You will be receiving your child's report next week. This concentrates on the Characteristics of Effective Learning this year which tells you what sort of learner your child is and how they approached activities in Nursery. 

Nursery Team.
