Where I Live
As part of our learning about where we live we enjoyed the walk to the post office to post the letters which we had written. It was a long way but we looked at the houses along the way and some of us could talk about directions to our homes.
Wear your Easter Bonnet!
The children wore their Easter bonnets with pride to Nursery today, and everyone who made one received a chocolate egg to enjoy. The winners received a big chocolate egg! Well done!
Stay And Read
It was good to see parents, grandparents and chidminders at our "stay and read" session.
We have enjoyed lots of role play about the emergency services. We had a visit from the police, and from Christine from St John's Ambulance. We have enjoyed learning about the important jobs that the police, fire service and ambulance service do.
Our Friends in Year 3
We had a visit from our friends in Year 3 this week. They came to tell us stories and they used puppets and props to make it really interesting.
Outdoor Learning Week Winter 2016
It was a chilly week for our Outdoor Learning week,but that didn't stop us Going on a Bear Hunt!
First we went through the grass....
We chose sticks and grasses and leaves to make paintbrushes. Then we painted the grass.
After that we went through the river....splash splosh!
We looked in the pond for creatures and plants.
Then we squelched through the mud...
...finding interesting patterns in our bark rubbings.
And we made it through the snowstorm before creating our own obstacle course which we had to go over, under and through.
Finally,of course, came the cave, which we built ourselves.
Let's Go Fly A Kite!
Welcome to our Nursery, on this windy day! And what are windy days good for? Flying kites of course! So...we made our kites and went out on the field to fly them.
Arctic Animal Yoga
We have been enjoying our Arctic Animal Yoga sessions in the hall.
We start with the Polar Bear...
Then the Walrus....
We're Going on a.....Polar Bear Hunt!
Today we went out Polar Bear spotting. And we found some! Thanks to our binoculars we were able to spot the Polar Bears all over the school grounds!
Outdoor Learning Week
We had great fun learning outside for the whole week. Can you spot us making hedgehogs? Or Autumn crowns? We made roly poly conker paintings too!
Planting at the Park
Graham and the Friends of Stand Road Park invited us to go and help plant daffodil bulbs. Of course we said yes!
Today the Nursery wasn't full of children, but was full of....Superheroes!
An huge egg appeared on the roof of our school, right outside Mr Martin's office! The police came to investigate, and then we went to investigate too! We took photographs and drew pictures. How did it get there? What sort of creature laid an egg like that?
The egg disappears.....
Then the egg disappeared. Where had it gone? Some children thought it had hatched. Logan said he thought that a dragon had laid it's egg at our school "to show us what a dragon's egg looks like". We thought it even could have gone to the moon! Seth offered for his dad to bring a long ladder to go up and have a look.
We have made posters about the missing egg, then stuck them on the corridor so that everyone can read them.
It's good to be back!
As always we are having a fun time in our newly decorated Nursery. We are enjoying getting to know and looking after our new friends as we explore the Nursery together.
On our first Muddy Monday of the year we read "Stick Man" by Julia Donaldson, then went hunting for sticks. We used them to paint with.
