Nursery

Welcome to Nursery!

We hope our website page gives you an insight into all the wonderful learning that takes place in our class. Our learning is supported by Miss Neale, Miss Kensik, Mrs Davidson and Mrs Janik and the team is completed with the help of our fantastic children. 

We have welcomed some very special visitors into our EYFS classrooms. Out of the ten eggs that arrived last Monday, hatched seven fluffy chicks. We watched in excitement as they hatched from their eggs and have continued to observe the chicks as they've got bigger and stronger every day! Here are some of our drawings of the chicks to show what they look like now. Our chicks loved exploring the mini chicken run our Nursery children made for golden time.

We've made our own traffic lights using paper and sticks that we found outdoors. We used them when playing on our bikes to tell our friends to stop, get ready and go! What a fantastic day we had making sure we followed the rules of our road signs. 

Look at our fantastic Easter bonnets!

We worked so hard with our parents to make our bonnets ready for our Easter Bonnet Parade in school this half term. After parading for our friends and family we received a prize from Mrs Hanley for all our super efforts. Well done, Nursery!

British Science Week was packed with fun experiments that we had the chance to share and experience with our parents during our EYFS Science Workshop. Our favourite experiment was making oobleck slime by mixing cornflour with water and food colouring. After exploring the slime with our fingers we began to use different tools to see if we could make patterns and prints in the slime. We love learning through messy play in Nursery!

The Three Little Pigs

We have read the story of The Three Little Pigs. We've built houses and acted out the story with our friends using role play masks. We even made a puppet show by creating our own puppets and theatre using different materials! At the end of the day we had a fantastic performance from some of our Nursery children. They were very good at taking turns and sharing the puppets whilst their crowd joined in as the wolf shouted, "Then I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house down!" 

 

Look at the fun we had celebrating Chinese New Year! We've made lanterns, tasted Chinese food and even danced like a traditional Chinese dragon. Can you remember how to say Happy New Year in Chinese?

 

Nursery children have looked at photographs of the moon and discussed what the surface looks like. We then decided to make our own moon rocks to replicate some of the rocks we spotted in one of the images. Here are some of the children making their moon rock flapjacks. The delicious smell of our classroom as the flapjacks baked made everyone want to try some!

Devine Diwali!

 

We celebrated Diwali in Nursery by painting Rangoli patterns and tasting traditional Indian food. We tasted some delicious foods including: onion bhajis, vegetable pakoras, poppadoms and mango chutney- though the poppadoms were the clear favourite! 

To raise money for Cafod, our EYFS classes had a Halloween party. We had so much fun making potions in our cauldron and dressing up in our spooky costumes! 

 

We loved using spoons and whisks to investigate some pumpkins outdoors. We had lots of conversations about who was going to carve the spookiest pumpkin at home with their families, we'd love to see some of your creations!

Bonfire night

We have used straws and paint to create some fantastic firework pictures. We discussed the fireworks we had seen on bonfire night and recreated our favourites. We used our bodies to explore making loud sounds through clapping and stomping, just like we heard on 5th November!
