Welcome to a new year in nursery!
We have a fun filled and exciting year ahead of us, packed full of activites, visitors and trips.
Keep checking our page for updates and photographs.
We have been exploring the Autumnal changes in our playground and garden.
We are enjoying kicking and brushing up the leaves, throwing leaves into the wind and collecting leaves.
We have even enjoyed some Autunmal stories in our hut in the garden.
As part of our topic of ‘Autumn’ we have been exploring the role of a farmer and thinking about where our food comes from.
We went up to the hall to look at the harvest display and explored some harvest foods with our senses.
We hope to create some art work for our display boards using some harvest vegetables.
To coincide with our topic “Amazing Me” we made some yummy biscuit treats.
We transformed a digestive biscuit into an edible portrait.
We used white chocolate buttons for eyes, a raisin for our nose, red icing for our mouths and and fruit strings for our hair.
In nursery we enjoy cooking.
We melted chocolate in the microwave and added rice crispies.
We mixed everything together and made delicious treats!
Today we celebrated all the different languages in our school by dressing up and having a European themed snack of Croissants and orange juice.
What a delicious treat!
In nursery the children help to make the playdough.
We follow the visual recipe, count out the ingredients and mix in a variety of colours.
In nursery we love to play outside!
We enjoy cycling and scooting around our track, digging in the sand pit, climbing on the climbing frame, playing in the house, building with the blocks and balancing on the stepping stones.
Everyday in nursery we eat a healthy snack.
We have fruit, milk and a selection of breads or yoghurts.
Snack time enables us to make choices and socialise with our peers.
Play is the vehicle on which we learn.
It takes us on an ongoing journey, allowing us to stop off, revisit and move on towards new goals.
Through play we develop physically, socially and academically.
Play enables us to explore, problem solve, predict and test theories.
Play provides us with natural opportunities to explore our world around us, discover our talents, to refine our gross and fine motor skills and to develop our early literacy and numeracy skills.
Through play we learn to negotiate and to work in groups, developing our communication and leadership skills.
We grow in confidence, independence and self esteem, all while developing a thirst for learning!
