Week Ending 24th February

We have had a super fun first week back beginning our topic on dinosaurs!

Our sound of the week table was very popular with a fine array of items commencing with “f”

Next week we are looking at the sound “b” what can you think of?

Focused learning activities have included designing a dinosaur, listening to Harry and the Bucket Full of Dinosaurs with props for the children to join in the story. Learning about the different dinosaurs that walked the earth many years ago, did they live in the sea, could they fly or did they live on the land? In maths the children played a dinosaur game involving shapes and throwing a dice. Dinosaur biscuits were created in cooking with some of the children reading my recipe!

After school

Please at the end of nursery take your children home, in the interests of Health and Safety once you have signed your child out we are no longer responsible for your safety and in the event of an emergency it is assumed you have left the school premises. I understand the temptation to allow the children to play whilst parents chat however I must request that this does not occur. The children are well aware that they are must go straight home. Many thanks for your understanding.


Week Ending February 10th

I can not believe that we have reached Half Term already! As always we have managed to fit in a wide and varied program of activities and learning. I am sure you have all enjoyed seeing the uploads on Tapestry.

Next term our topic will be dinosaurs which I am sure will be very popular!

Our I spy focus will be as follows;

20/2/17        F

27/2/17       B

6/3/17         J

13/3/17      Z

20/317     Show and Tell Week

Forest school was throughly enjoyed by both morning groups this week as the forest floor was extremely muddy!

The children have worked very hard on perfecting their poem ready for the performance.

PE session this week involved the children taking risks and showing great confidence as they clambered, slid and jumped from quite a height!

 Pencil skills and mark making are part of our weekly focus a solid tripod grip needs to be established in nursery to support good letter formation.

The dance and mime open class was well attended, the children proudly performed their routines.

The children did really well performing our poem and we are all very proud of how well they remembered their words. The judges thought it was so good (all of the entries were brilliant) we came out with the winning certificate.

Have a great Half Term.



Week Ending 3rd February

What a wet week it has been however forest School has provided new opportunities to slip and slide, paint faces and create mud monsters!

Focused learning again involved technology with the children using iPads to control Spiro and Ollie. Our new mobile phones were a great success with the children talking to each other and it was amazing to hear the language development that was involved.

Cooking was another success with the juicing machine proving popular and tasting the fresh orange juice helped to explain that it comes from oranges not a carton!

The fruit and vegetable freely box took courage and resilience!

Handa’s Suprise was much enjoyed, the creativity of the children as they painted, collaged and cut was awesome!
