Welcome to Nursery!
In Nursery we aim to provide a welcoming, secure and happy environment where children can explore and become independent learners.
The Nursery team for the 2016-2017 academic year are Mrs Keegan (class teacher), Mrs Wynn and Miss Beddows.
Our new children have settled into Nursery so well. It is lovely to see them coming in each morning with a big smile.
As we learnt about Diwali, we watched a special film showing children preparing and celebrating the Hindu 'Festival of Lights'. The children made Diwali lanterns and enjoyed making Rangoli patterns in trays of glitter.
We told the children the story of Guy Fawkes and learnt that Bonfire night is celebrated on the 5th November. The children have enjoyed making firework pictures with chalk, glitter and stars. We have been learning how to stay safe around bonfires and fireworks and watched a spectacular firework display on the big screen.
Nursery have been making lots of gross motor movements to music and using these moves in our mark making.
Celebrating Christmas with a party and 'Christmas Jumper Day'.
Nursery have been learning all about Winter. We have been investigating ice in our environment and seeing how it changed when it was in our warm classroom.
Nursery have enjoyed learning all about Chinese New Year. We made 'Dancing Dragons' and tried some delicious stir fry.
We have been learning all about animals in Winter. The children have been making bird feeders to help the birds find food during the cold Winter months.
Nursery have been learning all about Lent and Shrove Tuesday. We made and tasted some lovely pancakes.
