(We are the Very Hungry Caterpillars!)

We explore and learn through play all through the day! Alongside our experiences at home and with our families, nursery is the beginning of a life long learning journey, and what an exciting place to start! 

Please look at our nursery blogs to find out more.

This is me!

The nursery children have been using their observational skills to paint self-portraits. They used a mirror to observe their lovely faces first, before they painted.

The results were amazing.  They were really proud of their super work! Well done everyone!

Welcome back!

The Nursery children started the new term full of energy, smiles and stories about their summer holiday. Mrs Terrell and Miss Campbell welcomed some children back and introduced new children to our nursery setting.

It has been a busy first week back.

Sunny Sundown!

The Nursery children enjoyed a glorious, hot, sunny visit to Sundown Adventureland this week.  There was so much to do and see, including Story Book Village, Lollipoppet Castle, the tractor ride, Christmas sleigh ride, Monkey Mayhem driving school and the flying piggy ride. It was such a hot day that the nursery children agreed that being squirted by water in the Jolly Pirate Barrel ride was their favourite thing about Sundown!

A jolly good time was had by all!

OUR WORLD CUP GARDEN

Nursery and Reception children have been very busy creating a colourful garden in the EYFS outdoor area. They have worked alongside Mrs Flannery to plant a variety of different coloured flowers, representing lots of countrie’s flags! The children have also enjoyed making flags and being part of the World Cup Watering Team, taking turns to water and care for the plants. Thank you very much to Mrs Flannery for planning and co-ordinating the garden activities along with Miss Campbell! 

Well done to all of the Nursery and Reception children who have created our beautiful garden together!

Finding the way

The Nursery children have been finding out about maps.

We listened to a story about two dinosaurs finding their way to their friend’s house by using a map. ( During our discussion someone said, ” My dad uses a Satnav!”)

We looked at different maps and made our own large map using marks and symbols to show roads, castles, forests, railway tracks and dinosaurs!

Happy Father’s day

It is a special day for dads this Sunday, so the Nursery children have been thinking about their dads. At carpet time the children came out to the front to hold ‘Listening Bear’ and tell everyone about why they love their daddies.  Devon said, ” I love my daddy because he gives me cuddles in the night because I don’t like sleeping on my own. We like jumping in muddy puddles.” Pippa said, ” I love my daddy because he watches Toy Story 3 and Rapunzel with me.” Tommy said, ” I love my daddy because he makes me pasta bolognese.” Elijah said, ” I love my daddy because he gives me big bear hugs at night time.”  Matilda said, “I love my daddy because he watches me on the trampoline and he’s very good at making pancakes!”

Marcus said, ” I love my daddy because he plays games with me, like cars and hide and seek. Daddy counts to 5.” Sofia said, “I love my daddy because he colours with me and goes for a walk with me.” Scarlett said, ” I love my daddy because he throws me in the air and takes me to the park to ride my bike and pushes me on the swing.”

We have been listening to stories about fathers, drawing pictures of our dads and we have been making special cards in the creative area.

Happy Father’s Day to dads and Grandads everywhere!
