This week we have been thinking about cats! The children have enjoyed listening to 'Keith the cat with the silly hat' and then drawing him different hats at the mark making table. We have made paper plate cats on the workshop table, fed the cat the correct number of fish at the maths table and worked on our cutting skills at the finger gym.



The children were amazing at following instructions this week. They worked hard to draw some fantastic cats!


We really enjoyed the snow on Thursday! We even made two snowmen!!


School will be closed Friday 15th January. We will see you back at Nursery Monday 18th, enjoy the snow!

Happy New Year

Janet Spencer (j.spencer) on: Nursery Blog

We have had a lovely week in Nursery with our key worker children, but we are missing everyone else too! We hope you are all staying safe and have managed to access tapestry and parent mail at home for activity ideas. 

In Nursery we have started our topic about pets, this week we have focused on dogs. The children have enjoyed playing Paw Patrol, colouring pictures, painting dogs, cutting and ordering dogs, adding spots with tweezers, printing with bones, completing jigsaws and talking about our own dogs and pets.



We have also been helping sick animals in our vets this week.


Lots of fun was had in the snow on Friday too!

We wish you a Merry Christmas

So much Christmassy fun has been had this week! Making decorations, creating a Nativity scene, cutting spiral trees and ordering Christmas objects. 


We received a reply from Santa this week, after we sent our letters to him! He even sent us a special gift to have in Nursery!


What a cracking Christmas party! We danced, played festive games, made decorations, coloured pictures, watched the video of our schools Christmas songs and even had a social distanced visit from Santa!

Christmas fun

Janet Spencer (j.spencer) on: Nursery Blog

This week we have gone Christmas crazy! We have been writing letters to Santa, designing Christmas jumpers, printing and painting christmas pictures and making special calendars ready for next year.




Reminder: Our Christmas party is on Wednesday 16th December. Children can come in their party clothes and we ask that they bring a treat to eat in a named box or bag.

Weather and seasons

Janet Spencer (j.spencer) on: Nursery Blog

This week we have been thinking about the different seasons. The children have enjoyed singing lots of weather rhymes, exploring ice, feeling the snow and creating rain makers.




Christmas arrived in Nursery on Friday! The children loved decorating the tree and making their own baubles.


Reminder: Nursery are having their Christmas jumper day on Wednesday 9th December.

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.
