Today we went on our Christmas post office walk. We all got wrapped up in our hats, scarves and wellingtons. We went to buy a stamp for our Father Christmas Letters. The lady at the post office was very kind and helped us to weigh our envelope and count out our money. Once the stamp was stuck on the envelope, we posted it the post box. 

When we returned to Nursery, we had a little surprise. A little Christmas elf brought us all some hot chocolate and a slice of toast for our snack. We were all very excited and had lots of conversations about our trip. 

A big thank you to all the parents that helped walk the children to the post office. It was much appreciated!

November 2018

This month we having learning about Diwali, the festival of light. We have been reading and listening to the story of Rama and Sita and we have been creating rangoli patterns with rice and coloured sand. We also looked at henna patterns on photographs and then drew round our hands and created our own henna patterns. We had lots of discussion time about how our friends and families celebrate special times within the year. 

October 2018

This week, we have been exploring space as part of our whole school science week. We have had lots of fun counting moon rocks, creating our own aliens in the galaxy playdough, using 3D shapes to make our own rockets and we used our imagination when playing with our new space rocket. We particularly enjoyed listening to stories about space and singing one of our favourite songs 'Five Little Men in a Flying Saucer'. We were fascinated to watch a real space shuttle take off and find out how astronauts move around on the international space station.

Our Term in Nursery

The nursery children have finally started their journey through the foundation stage and what a fantastic couple of weeks they have all had. All the children have settled in very well and have been very busy. We have been choosing within the new classroom and exploring the outside area.  Well done everyone!
