The pirates have landed in Nursery! We have had lots of fun dressing up, drawing treasure maps, singing sea shanties, walking the plank and using our imaginations in our pirate ship.



We have introduced our Nursery inspectors this week! They have a very special job to check that all the areas of Nursery have been tidied up correctly. Each day we will have new inspectors, chosen because they have done amazing tidying previously.

Reminder: Thursday 13th and Friday 14th February are training days so school will not be open. The following week is half term. We will see you back at Nursery Monday 24th February.

Under the sea

Anna Head (a.head) on: Nursery Blog

We have had lots of fun exploring our under the sea role play this week! The children have been dressing as fish, deep sea divers and mermaids. We have thought about what we might see under the sea and used our imagination to fill our buckets like the character in our book of the week 'Billy's bucket.' We have even played in our own Nursery bucket band!



At the craft table we used the resources to create our own buckets and tested if they were strong enough to hold certain objects.

Chinese New Year

Anna Head (a.head) on: Nursery Blog

We have had lots of fun learning about Chinese New Year this week. We have been cooking and eating in our Chinese restaurant, using chop sticks to pick up pom poms, scooping up red rice, drawing Chinese symbols, creating Chinese dragons and doing dragon dances! 



We learnt about Chinese food and even got to try some noodles, beansprouts and prawn crackers.


Miss Hurdsfield brought in lots of her Chinese resources for us to look at. We really enjoyed looking at the Chinese maps.

Reminder: Class photographs are on Tuesday 28th January.

Welcome back

Anna Head (a.head) on: Nursery Blog

Welcome back! We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and a wonderful new year. We have had lots of fun settling back into Nursery this week, we have even welcomed some new children!

It has been lovely hearing about the children's Christmas time and introducing them to our new topic 'under the sea.' We have decorated fish puppets, used play dough to create objects under the sea and coloured the correct number of sea creatures. Rainbow fish has taught us all about positional language and we worked together to write a list of things that we would find in the sea, thinking about the initial sounds when writing them.

More Christmas Fun!

Anna Head (a.head) on: Nursery Blog

What a lovely end to this term! We had lots of fun at our Christmas party on Wednesday, Santa even popped in to see us! 



On Friday we had a baby shower for Mrs Richardson. We played games, guessed if she would have a boy or a girl and sang her a special Goodbye song that we made up ourselves.

Thank you for a lovely year in Nursery Mrs Richardson, we will miss you! But we are happy to welcome Mrs Ingham back to Nursery on Fridays.
