Superheroes!

The children have shown a real interest in Superheroes so we decide to explore this further. The Joker stole all of our Superheroes so and we had to work out how we could get them back!

The Journey Home From Grandpa's 

We read the story "The Journey Home From Grandpa's". We loved joining in with the rhythm of the story and were really good at recalling our favourite parts. We sequenced the story, made trains out of tubes and attached them with treasury tags and made a train using crates outside.

The Naughty Bus 

The children have really enjoyed reading The Naughty Bus. We had our own naughty bus in nursery and he was out of control! We made Stop! signs to try and stop the bus from getting in to mischief! We also used shapes to make tall buildings and used small tools to make our own vehicles with moving wheels.

Collaborative Learning 

There have been lots of opportunities for us to work collaboratively. This helps us with our interactions with others, supports our speech an language and allows us to explore different experiences whist feeling safe.

"We're Going On A Bear Hunt"

We had so much fun reading "We're Going On A Bear Hunt" by Michael Rosen. The children enjoyed joining in with the rhythmic pattern of the story and were able to join in with the repeated story language, they even learnt parts of the story off by heart! Have a look at some of our bear hunt activities.

The children have settled back in to Nursery after the half term holiday and have already been very busy! 

They celebrated Bonfire Night by doing a collaborative firework picture using a splatter paint technique and made individual pictures by rolling a marble across a piece of paper. 

We learnt about Remembrance Day and made poppies to remember the Soldiers. We also used loose parts to create poppy art work and painted some fantastic poppies.

Welcome to Nursery!

 

 

The children have got off to a flying start in Nursery and I am really pleased at how well they have settled into their new environment. The children benefit from having access to a range of resources daily in Nursery including water and sand play, outdoors activities, mark making, art and craft, construction, role play and playdoh. They will also have the opportunity to be involved in a range of weekly activities including baking, sport and games, music sessions, circle time, technology and messy play. We will be helping the children to grow friendships in Nursery and will be talking about their health and self care. The children will also learn some letters sounds and will develop their ideas about shape and number.

 

Our topic this half term is 'One in a Million' with the focus being on learning lots about the children, their interests and what makes them special. We have already learnt a lot about the children in Nursery and look forward to learning much more!

 

 

Nursery Induction Dates and other Information

Nursery Class of 2016/2017

 

The children in Nursery have had a fantastic year!

We started the year reading the Owl Babies and got the oppurtunity to meet some real owls.

Over the past twelve months we have explored space and visited the moon, helped Super worm with his challenges and been on a magical mystery tour.

The Nursery has been involved in the SEMH project that promotes and encourages collaborative play. This has helped develop the children speech and language development, their social development and how they manage their own feelings and behaviour.

The older Nursery children are very excited about moving up to Reception.
