Welcome back!

Happy New Year! We hope you all had a lovely Christmas break.

We have started this half term thinking about winter. We have been talking about the changes outside and what type of clothing is appropriate for winter. We have created snowmen using the letters in our names, had fun exploring ice cubes in the messy tray and used plates and paints to make robins.

We talked about how animals might struggle to find food in the winter, so we used cheerios, pipe cleaners and string to make bird feeders to hang up outside.


We have had some new children come into Nursery this week for their stay and play sessions, they were all amazing and seemed to have a lovely time. We look forward to welcoming them as members of our Nursery from next week. 

We are happy to tell you that Mrs Parker will be making a return to Nursery over the next few weeks but sadly that means Mrs Senior will be leaving us at half term.

It's Christmas!

Janet Spencer (j.spencer) on: Nursery Blog

We have had a busy two weeks of Christmassy fun at Nursery! Decorating trees, making cards, creating calendars, wrapping gifts, joining paper chains, singing songs and writing letters to Santa!


The children sang their hearts out when we recorded our Christmas songs, we are very proud of them all.


We had a wonderful Christmas party! We even had a visit from Santa!!


We would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, we look forward to seeing you back at Nursery on Tuesday 4th January 2022.

The Little Red Hen

Janet Spencer (j.spencer) on: Nursery Blog

This week we have been reading the story The Little Red Hen. We used the characters to act out the story, created windmills, worked at the Nursery bakery and tasted different types of bread.


We reached our class target last week so we had our prince and princess treat day on Wednesday.


Reminder: Children can come to Nursery wearing something Christmassy on Wednesday 8th December ready to perform our Christmas songs.

The Magic Porridge Pot

Janet Spencer (j.spencer) on: Nursery Blog

This week we have been reading the book 'The Magic Porridge Pot.' We have coloured, cut and roleplayed with the characters. We made marks in porridge, worked at the Nursery café and thought about which bag of porridge oats was the heaviest or lightest. We also talked about the difference between a full and empty bowl, experimented with bicarbonate of soda and vinegar and followed instructions to make our own porridge to taste.



To raise awareness for anti-bullying week we have shared our ideas on how we can be kind to our friends and talked about the differences between all kinds of people. 


We had lots of spotty fun on Friday for Children in Need.

Remembrance Day

Janet Spencer (j.spencer) on: Nursery Blog

On Thursday we thought about all the fallen soldiers, we talked about why we buy poppies and where the money goes. We coloured pictures, created poppies and had a minute silence at 11 o'clock.

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.
