We have had lots of fun talking about fireworks and bonfire night this week. We have painted pictures, made shape rockets, explored the materials to create colourful fireworks and talked about being safe on bonfire night.



We followed instructions well and enjoyed some yummy chocolate sparklers on Tuesday!


We have talked about Diwali this week. We listened to a story, watched a clip of a family celebrating, made our own Mehndi hand patterns and created a Rangoli floor pattern. 


Reminder: We are needing your kind donations for our surprise tombola stall for the Christmas fayre, we would really appreciate any new unwanted gifts at home you could spare.

We have had a fun last week in Nursery before our half term break.  The children have enjoyed dressing up, making a ghost train, mixing a witch's brew, playing a pumpkin dice game and making skeletons and paper chains.



We had so much fun at our Halloween party on Wednesday! We danced, played games, decorated biscuits and carved a pumpkin! The costumes were all brilliant, thank you for your support.



We hope you have a fantastic half term break and we will see you back at nursery on Monday 4th November.

This week we have been looking at babies and how they grow. We have had lots of fun washing them in the water tray, writing new baby cards at the mark making table, designing bibs at the craft table, making rattles at the finger gym, mixing 'baby food' in the messy tray and sorting objects that a baby does or doesn't need at the puzzle table.


Mrs Richardson brought her guitar in to school on Friday. We had lots of fun singing nursery rhymes and practising our LOUD and quiet voices.

This week we have been thinking about size. We have been matching up different sized straws, comparing who has made the tallest and shortest towers, ordering the dinosaurs in the mud and we have also been sorting the large and small objects into the correct hoop.


We even lined ourselves up in size order!

We do a music session every Tuesday and Thursday. This week we have been playing loud and quiet sounds. The children enjoyed singing along with Mrs Parker's keyboard too.


As it is 'keep safe week' we have been talking a lot about how to keep safe in and out of school. The children had fun discussing and sorting pictures into Safe or Unsafe categories.
