Welcome to Nursery 2017 - 2018

Thursday 29th March 2018

Today we went for a walk around the school looking for signs of Spring. We found lots of trees with buds starting to grow. We found daffodils, primroses and daisies starting to flower. We listened for the birds and spotted a bird’s nest in the tree.

Can you spot any signs of Spring when you are out and about this Easter?

Today EYFS visited Smithills Farm.  We all had a wonderful time. First, we all had a ride on a donkey. It was a bumpy ride but the donkeys were very friendly.

Then we fed the sheep, pigs, ponies and alpacas.

After that, we went on a very bumpy tractor ride up to the horse field. At the top of the field we stopped the tractor and fed the horses. The biggest horse, Jack, was a greedy horse and ate all of our bread!

It was then time for lunch. We had our picnic and had a quick trip to the park. Then it was time to watch the cows being milked.

Our final activity of the day was Pet’s Corner. We had plenty of time to stroke, cuddle and feed the baby animals. It was a fantastic experience. We feel very lucky to have been a part of it. 

Our topic this term is ‘Do cows drink milk?’ We will be learning about life on a farm. This week we read the story ‘Say Hello to the Animals’ and we have been making fingerprint Sheep. We also read the story of The Lost Sheep and have been counting sheep in the field.

Today we visited the chicks in Reception

 SNOW DAY ❄️

We have had a great time playing in the snow this week!

Forest School

Today we celebrated numbers on Number Day and raised money for the NSPCC.

Watoto Children’s Choir

Today we had the privilege of watching the Watoto choir perform in our school. Our children had a wonderful time and were dancing in the aisles throughout the performance. The members of the choir are such an inspirational group of people. 

Valentine’s Day

During our Pyjama Day we tweeted David Walliams to thank him for reading us our Bedtime Story, and he liked our tweet! 

We think that now makes him our friend ...

We have the X Factor!  

Remembrance Day

We have been talking about poppies and why people wear them.  We made a giant poppy and added lots of coloured objects into the correct places.  We made poppies in the play dough and we made special Remembrance Rocks to take home.  On Friday we had our own 2 minute silence and watched the Poppy Animation on Cbeebies.  We enjoyed watching the story of the little rabbit and his family.

This term our topic is Why do leaves go crispy?  We have been learning all about autumn and woodland animals.  We have loved reading the story of The Stick Man.  We went for a walk to hunt for the Stick Man.  We looked for signs of autumn and collected lots of sticks. We used the sticks for painting, counting, building dens, lighting fires and mark making with charcoal.  We have made hedgehog bread, a Gruffalo Den, pumpkin soup, bonfire pictures and autumn trees.

Nursery are taking part in The Daily Mile. 

Every day at 1.00pm we do a little warm up and then we run around our Nursery garden.  Sometimes we have ribbons, sometimes we play music, sometimes we play Follow my Leader and sometimes we just run for fun!

The Daily Mile

We have had a busy week making new friends and exploring the Nursery.

We have been making friendship handprints.  we painted our hand then shook hands with a friend and the two colours made a new colour.
