Nursery Fun Day

What a fun day we've had today. We've played games in Nursery and 'Down the Wild'. We decorated cakes ,had our faces painted and even had a tatoo. We had a disco, played musical statues and enjoyed eating lots of yummy party food. A fun day was had by everyone!

Nursery Art Gallery

The children worked very hard creating different pieces of artwork. They all experimented with different techniques and then chose their favourite technique to create their under the sea background. We then recycled lots of different materials to decorate our paintings. We also made sea creature models.We set up our art gallery and sold our art work for £1. What a bargain!

Under the Sea

  We have been busy learning all about sea creatures so we can make our 'Under the Sea' art gallery. Here's some of our super learning.

A Rainbow Trout

We had a real fish in Nursery today. We looked carefully at it and painted what we could see.

Summer Term

Our topic for this term is 'Under the Sea'. For our 'Rich Task' we received a letter from Mrs John asking us to create our own art gallery in our school foyer. We set straight to work and talked about all the things that we needed to do. We've put all of our ideas on the wall so we can remember what we need to do. Here are our some of our ideas.....

Learn about sea creatures, Make a sign for the art gallery, make sculptures and models for the art gallery, paint under the sea paintings, paint sea creatures, make name labels and frames for our paintings.


We are busy planning our ' Eggstravaganza'. We have been brainstorming our ideas and we are very excited. We have decided to invite our families, make Easter food, decorations and Egg/ Easter bonnets.

We had a fantastic day celebrating our learning. In the morning we sang Easter songs, went on egg hunts and played parachute and egg games. That wasn't all though! In the afternoon we had our Easter food and then our families came to see us. We paraded with our Egg/ Easter bonnets, sang our songs and then shared our learning with our families.
Looking after the chicks helped us with lots of our learning.  We painted chicks, created shape chicks, made playdough chicks and lots more.

Chick Watch

Look at what arrived in Nursery today! Chick watch has begun. We will keep you posted with any updates so keep watching!

Nursery did a great job looking after our 10 little chicks. We gave them names, fed them and thought of all the things we needed to do to look after them. Other classes came to visit the chicks and ' Chick Watch' told them everything we had learned.

Dinosaur Museum

The children have been very busy learning all about dinosaurs and they have had a wonderful idea to create their own museum to show all their findings. Today we have been learning about dinosaur skeletons and created our own skeletons using pipes.

The finished museum

The children have worked very hard and are proudly displaying all of their dinosaur work in their brilliant museum.

 The children have been busy finding out facts about dinosaurs.
We have even made our own dinosaurs and dinosaur nests and also explored with printing to create scaly dinosaur skin.


Our new topic is Eggsasaurus and we are starting with dinosaurs.

Dinosaurs Galore

We have had a busy start to the term and the children are showing lots of interest and enthusiasm  while finding out about the dinosaurs.

It was so exciting.He gave us chocolates and he loved our singing too!


Christmas Party

Thank you for all the party food too. We had a feast and it was all delicious! 

Christmas has Started!

This week we have been learning about a very special story. The children have been dressing up and retelling the Christmas Story. They have also been helping Mary and Joseph by making a stable and a manger for Baby Jesus.

We have also been busy doing lots of other Christmas activities. We have been counting buttons on the snowman, using the tweezers to pick up decorations to decorate the tree and even made our own Christmas cards,wrapping paper and gifts tags for our special gifts for our Mummies and Daddies.

Wow! Magic snow! It has been so exciting in nursery today. We made our own snow! Look at our snowmen.

Shape Families


We have been busy learning about our families. They are all very different but still very special. We even made shape families and talked about the names of the different shapes.

Sense of Taste

This week we are learning about our sense of taste. We have been tasting different kinds of fruit and following recipe cards to make our own fruit salad.  Delicious!!

Thank you for all the fruit you have sent in to help us with our activities.
More exploring with fruit today. We used magnifying glasses and tweezers to find the seeds and we've been printing with fruit too.

The Elves



It's been an exciting day in Nursery today. We have had some very special visitors!


Children in Need

We made Pudsey Bear hats in Nursery for Children in Need and we came to school looking very spotty! Thank you for all the donations.

Wizzy Wizard - Sense of Smell
We had a letter from Wizzy Wizard and he needed our help. He had lost his sense of smell and needed help to make smelly potions. We used our sense of smell to help us to make very smelly potions! We even did super mark making to write our potion recipes too.
We also used money to buy potions from the potion shop and sang our new song '5 Smelly Potions in a Potion shop'.

It is Dragons' Den week! 

In Nursery we are designing and making bread to help the baker to re open his bakery. 

We are learning a new song '5 Currant buns in a Bakers shop',exploring with dough, tasting different bread and designing our own bread rolls.

We will be following our designs and making our bread tomorrow so keep your eyes peeled for our yummy bread rolls soon!
We have been following our designs and making our bread rolls. We hope the baker likes them! We think they look delicious! 

Well, we have been to the Dragon's Den and the verdict is in .............

The dragon loves all our designs and the baker wants them all for his bakery! Luckily we are allowed to eat the ones we have made this week! 

Light Box

We have a new dark tent in Nursery and this week we have been using our light box to explore with shapes. We even made some patterns with the shapes.


Sense of Touch 
This week we have been enjoying the sunshine in our willow area. We have been using our sense of touch and helping the bear from our story of the week 'We're going on a Bear Hunt'. We have explored different textures to make him a new home, painted him new friends using mud and got a bit messy making him some mud pies!
We have also been helping Mr Bear to learn about in, on and under. We had lots of fun following instructions and we even used the words too!

Our Sense of Hearing - I can hear!

We have been reading the story 'Peace at Last' and poor Mr. Bear could not get to sleep because there were too many noises. We have been using our listening ears to help Mr. Bear to find out about different sounds by sorting toys that make sounds and toys that don't make a sound. We have been singing lots of songs and exploring with making different sounds. We used pots and pans and even made our own instruments. Mr Bear liked it when we played quiet music ( and so did the grown ups too! 

We also went on a listening walk and heard the birds tweeting, the children talking, the leaves rustling and lots more! 

Our own instruments

Still image for this video
We made our own instruments. It was great fun playing them!
The children also wanted to help Mr Bear by making him some ear defenders. We filled them with different materials to try and make the sounds quieter. The cotton wool worked really well. 

Our Sense of Sight - I Can See!

We have been learning all about our sense of sight. Our story for the week has been ' Anna and her Amazing Multicoloured Glasses'. Anna was very sad because she had lost her magic glasses, so we have been busy making her some new coloured glasses. We have also been doing lots of looking with our 'I Spy Finders' and found lots of different things in our Nursery.

Here are some of the things that we have found.

We have been exploring with our coloured glasses and magnifying glasses. We enjoyed seeing everything change colour and get bigger!
Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

We have started our topic by learning about the different parts of our bodies. We have loved singing our special song 'Heads Shoulders Knees and Toes' for the week and we can even sing it very fast now! We have made shape people, created our faces using different materials and even drawn our faces using the I pads.


Here is some of the super work we have been doing!

We used the mirrors to look at our faces. We changed some of our facial features and it made us laugh!
Marvellous Me!

Our topic for this term is 'Marvellous Me!' 

Can you guess what we are going to be learning about?

We have a very busy term planned with lots of learning all about our bodies, our senses,our families and much much more!

We'll keep you posted so keep checking to find out more soon!
