Frogs and Keeping Healthy

Janet Spencer (j.spencer) on: Nursery Blog

We looked closely at the life cycle of a frog and even had our own tadpoles in Nursery. We counted frogs, made them jump, explored the swamps and used different materials to create them.


We talked about how our bodies change and how we need to have a healthy and balanced lifestyle. We talked about how exercise is important, sorted healthy and unhealthy foods and explored different fruits/vegetables. 


We are so proud of all the children for listening, joining in and trying their best on our Sports Day. Thank you for coming to support us too.

Welcome back! We have started our new topic ‘Changes’ by looking at the life cycle of a butterfly. We read the book The Very Hungry Caterpillar and welcomed some of our own caterpillars into Nursery!

We used different materials to decorate butterflies, completed jigsaws, explored symmetry, continued patterns and crafted a lifecycle.


We thought about the changes in our lives and how we all grow during week 2. We drew pictures, worked in an office, bathed babies, made medals, talked lots about our Daddies and made them something special for Father’s Day.

Under the sea and Jungles

Janet Spencer (j.spencer) on: Nursery Blog

We enjoyed exploring under the sea with some dressing up, fishing, water play, counting and decorating our own fish.


We then went to the jungle by climbing, crawling and jumping our way through the trees and vines. We talked about the different animals that live in the jungle, made parrots, glued shape snakes, hung leaves on a tree and used play dough to create jungle animals. 


We had a ROYALLY good day celebrating the Queen’s jubilee on Wednesday. We talked about the queen, made crowns, decorated plates, created a Union Jack flag, played in the castle, made afternoon tea for our friends and tried some yummy cucumber sandwiches and scones.


Reminder: It is half term holidays next week, we look forward to seeing you back at Nursery on Monday 6th June.

Polar regions and Woodland area

Janet Spencer (j.spencer) on: Nursery Blog

We have spent another two weeks in different places. We visited the polar regions by exploring the “igloo” and ice skating on the frozen lake! We created snowy pictures, stacked ice cubes, learnt all about the animals that live in the arctic and explored the foamy snow.  

We went to the woods by acting out stories in the woodland cottage, used sticks to create stickman and his family, talked about the things we might see or hear in the woods and made marks using sticks and leaves.

Where is my favourite place?

Janet Spencer (j.spencer) on: Nursery Blog

Welcome back! Our first week was all about Spring. We explored the "frog spawn", bought gardening equipment from the garden center, decorated butterflies and went on a walk around school to look for the signs of spring!


We talked about St. George's day and why we celebrate it in our country.


We have started our new topic 'Where is my favourite place?'

We began by exploring space! The children have enjoyed working at the space station, painting planets, exploring the alien slime, making moon buggies, weighing space rocks and cutting out astronauts.

Home Learning

Anna Head (a.head) on: Nursery Blog - 2019-20

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.
