Summer break

Janet Spencer (j.spencer) on: Nursery Blog

What a fun last week in Nursery! We have been treasure hunting, designing bunting, rescuing mermaids, squishing water beads and creating jellyfish!

On Wednesday we had an end of year celebration. The children enjoyed playing games, making crispy buns, hooking ducks and dancing! 


We went to check the allotment this week.....Wow everything has grown so well! 


Despite the difficulties of the past year we have really loved helping the children learn and grow. We will definitely miss them when they go up to reception and we look forward to welcoming some of them back in September.
Enjoy the summer break and stay safe,

The Nursery Team

This week we have been thinking about how our bodies change when we exercise. We have been experimenting with different ways of moving, following the yoga instructions, having races with the animals and making healthy heart characters.


The children all worked hard on Wednesday for our sports day!


Reminder: We are having an end of year celebration on Wednesday 21st July. Children can come to school in any outfit of their choice :-)

Our World

Janet Spencer (j.spencer) on: Nursery Blog

This week we have been thinking about the changes to our world. We have read the book 'Dreamer, Saving our Wild World' and thought of ways that we can help to save the world. The children have enjoyed creating the Earth in different ways, sorting out objects to recycle and making 'Save the World' hero masks!


We had a great day on Wednesday making England flags, creating posters and singing football songs! We definitely think that all our singing helped us win on Wednesday night!


We had lots of fun at the school fun day on Thursday! We want to say a BIG thank you to the school PTA for organising everything. To quote one of the children "This is the best day ever!"



Reminder: We are having a Nursery sports day on Wednesday 14th July. Please send your child to school in trainers or something suitable for running in.

We have really enjoyed watching the caterpillars grow each week. The children talked about the changes from caterpillar, to cocoon, to butterfly.

This week we have been thinking about the changes in the season. The children have enjoyed colouring pictures, writing postcards, going on train journeys and decorating sand castles. 


We were amazed at how well our cress grew! The children looked at the differences from last week and some of them tasted the cress at snack time. We also went to the allotment to water our vegetables and talked about the changes in our caterpillars!


To celebrate OBON day on Friday we made scones, coloured flags, played games, created Holi inspired hand prints, performed 'London Bridge is falling down' for the rest of school and enjoyed listening to the other classes perform their songs.

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.
