Delight in Effort, Acceptance and Achievement

Nursery

Welcome to Nursery!

 

We are delighted to have your child in our Nursery class. 

Our staff are dedicated to providing your child with an exciting introduction to their educational career as they take full advantage of the experiences offered to them through their pre-school education. 

We have a fun filled and exciting year ahead of us.  

Keep checking our page for updates and photographs.

Enchanted Day!

 

To link in with current topic, “Our Favourite Stories”, our period of home learning coming to an end and our return to face to face learning we celebrated with an Enchanted Day!

We came to school dressed up as fairy tale characters, our classroom was decorated with lots of fairy lights, we had a party at snack time and a banquet at lunch time!

What a fun filled day!

Outdoor Fun!

 

We love spending time outdoors!

We are very fortunate to have two outdoor areas, our garden and our playground!

Spring Hats!

 

We decorated our Spring hats with materials from our creative area.

Each hat is unique, just like us!

Rice Crispie Buns

 

We made delicious treats by following a recipe, melting the chocolate and mixing the ingredients.

They tasted delicious!

Making Playdough

 

Every day we make playdough for the Nursery.  

The children are becoming experts at following the recipe and mixing the ingredients.

We like to change the colour of the playdough or add glitter or scents for an extra sensory experience.

Printing with Harvest Vegetables 

 

We explored Harvest vegetables using our senses before mixing paint and printing with them.

What fun!

Settling In

 

We have had a busy few weeks settling into Nursery, meeting new friends and learning new routines. 

Our classroom has been filled with smiling faces and laughter!

Please do not think that we simply 'play'.

 

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!
