We have been thinking about Autumn this week. We have created leaf people, decorated trees, explored vegetables, searched the outdoor area for Autumn objects, counted conkers and pine cones and learnt some Autumn songs.



We had a great day on Wednesday enjoying our treat for reaching our class target! We decorated Elmer the elephant, used buttons to create rainbows, decorated biscuits, learnt the rainbow song and played games.



Reminder: Children can come to Nursery dressed up on Wednesday 20th October for our Halloween party.

All about me!

This week we have been thinking about our favourite things. We have bought food from the shop, made models to sell in the shop, used the play dough to create our favourite food and explored different textures in the messy tray. 


We have been thinking about our feelings this week. We talked about the things that make us feel happy and sad during group time. Each day we put our photo on the emotion that we are feeling and we can move them throughout the day if our feelings change.


Reminder: We have got 10 monkeys on the bed to reach our class target!! On Wednesday 13th October children can come to school dressed in bright colours for a fun rainbow party day!

We have been thinking about when we were babies this week! We had fun guessing which baby picture was our friends and we even tried some baby food and snacks! We decorated blankets at the craft table, learnt how to put nappies on the dollies and used the play dough to create baby bottles and rattles.


We only have 2 monkeys left to get on the bed to complete our class target! We hope we can do some amazing sitting and listening next week so we can have our treat day!

This week in Nursery we have been thinking about ourselves. We have been painting our portraits, searching for body parts, looking after babies in the clinic and dressing the body at the finger gym.

We have also enjoyed playing loud and quiet sounds, identifying different noises and completing tasks to do with the number 1.



We have set our class target this week, we had a vote to choose our treat. When we get 10 monkeys on the bed we will be having a rainbow day!

Welcome back!

We have had a lovely couple of weeks in Nursery so far. We have had a week with the returning children from last year and then welcomed some new children too. The children have all listened well to our rules and routines and have worked hard at sitting on the carpet and tidying up at the right times.


We went to check on our plot at the allotment, made our hand prints for our class promise, created faces and people at the craft table and enjoyed some singing and dancing on the carpet.

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.
