What an egg- citing week the Nursery children have had. Below is a short film about the chicks first week in our nursery.

Thursday 8th March

The nursery children had a lot of fun during World Book Day. They came to nursery dressed as their favourite book character. During group time they had the opportunity to talk about the favourite part of the story.

Wednesday 7th March 2018   The chicks have arrived!! Number 8 egg was the first to hatch.

Wow!! What an amazing science week we have had.

On Monday we watched how hot water reacted with a plate of skittles to make a beautiful rainbow. (photo's below and video to follow shortly)

 Tuesday was pancake day and the children enjoyed watching liquids turn into solids and of course eating the pancakes!

On Wednesday and Thursday the children investigated how to make yummy porridge. They added, ketchup, sugar, golden syrup and salt to their porridge to see if they could make it 'just right'. We have some children with very interesting taste buds. Also on Thursday the children learnt that when you mix some materials together you can create very exciting reactions. Watch how our rocket launched into the sky (scroll down to watch the video of the exciting experiment)

February 2018

This term, we have been having great fun playing in the three bears' cottage. We used key phrases from the story 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' and enjoyed changing our voices to match our character. Unfortunately, the nursery children were not the only ones to have been in the cottage. One Monday, the children came in to nursery to find that the cottage had been  turned upside down. Clues had been left for the children to investigate. All the children had great ideas of who they thought had made the mess. After a discussion, the children made 'wanted' posters and put them around the school so that the naughty person could be found and be made to say sorry.

Well what a busy month we have had learning our Nativity Songs! The teachers' in nursery are very proud of all their little lambs. Everyone tried very hard to remember their special dance. Here are a few photo's of our fantastic children.

 20th - 24th November 2017

This week has been road safety week. The children in our nursery have been using the road signs to role play how to keep safe.  They enjoyed playing the part of the lollipop lady/man, stopping the traffic and helping their friends to cross the road safely.

November 2017

On Friday 10th November we came to nursery wearing the colour red. We wore red to help us to think about Rememberance day and why we learn about it. We coloured in pictures of poppies and watched a special on the Cbeebies website   to help us to understand why we were poppies.

Here are a few comments that the nursery children made throughout the day

"People died in the war" Scout         "It's Remembrance day...we have to wear red"  Ava-Mae           "Poppies grew in the war"  Lara



October 2017

The children have been very keen to talk about how they are going to celebrate Halloween and many of them said that they had a pumpkin at home. In our nursery we decided to explore the insides of a pumpkin. Some of the children pretended to make pumpkin soup and others wanted to cut the pumpkin up into smaller pieces.

October 2017

We have been finding out about different cultures and celebrations. This term we have been learning about Diwali, The festival of Light. We made our own rangoli patterns using shapes. Mrs Patel help us to understand how to put on a saree.


We have been learning about colours and exploring how to make new ones.


Our first week has been very busy.

Our first day 12.09.17

The nursery children have finally started their journey through the foundation stage and what a fantastic day 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!
