Welcome to Nursery!
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.
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!
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?
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!
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!
