Welcome to Nursery!
Hello and welcome to the NURSERY MORNING page. This page will be regularly updated with photographs and information. We hope you enjoy it!
Today we have had a very busy day! We started by telling all of our friends what we want to be when we grow up. We used our wooden spoons as prompts which we had drawn pictures of ourselves on. The children then made up their own stories on the carpet together, using their wooden spoons. The children then came up to the the front in pairs to share their stories with the class. It was so much fun!
We also had an extra special treat today. Because all of our boys and girls got onto GOLD this week, we had a movie and some popcorn during golden time! Well done to all of nursery!
Today for our welly walk we went on the hunt for different clues of different jobs. We had to match the right 'worker' to either their car, workplace or a tool which they may use. We did a super job at matching them all!
The children had lots of fun making egg and cress sandwiches. The children have grown their own cress, we pealed the shell from the eggs, added some mayonnaise and then we all had a turn at using the masher to mash the eggs. The children then spread the egg mayonnaise onto their sandwich and sprinkled on some of their cress. We took them home to eat!
The children learnt all about the process of growing, that we can eat some things which we grow, safety when using equipment and this activity really helped to support our physical motor skills too!
Shared Learning Activity
This week I have sent home a sunflower seed attached to the weekly letter. It would be really good if you could plant the seed with your child and talk about the process of what a flower needs to make it grow. Please send in pictures of updates on how your sunflower is doing!
Today nursery were very excited to see we had two special visitors in nursery! We were in charge of looking after the school guinea pigs for the day, and what an amazing job we did! We said good morning to Suzie and Coco at register time, showed them how super we were at tidying up and staying super quiet so that we didn't scare them. The children told Miss Curbishley that guinea pigs need food, water, sleep, a play and a friend to help to make them grow. The boys and girls did a brilliant job of washing their hands after they had held the guinea pigs, to get rid of any germs.
This week we have had a great first week back from Easter. We have spent lots of time getting to know each other even more, and helping Miss Curbishley learn all of our names! Our challenge this week was to peg the legs back onto the minibeasts, we were very good at this! We also counted the legs on all of the insects, made our own minibeasts using the shapes, searched for minibeasts in our role play area and took part in our first welly walk!
Today at nursery we went on our first welly walk! The children went out of our nursery and into the main infant playground on the hunt for some 'missing' pictures. The children managed to find all of the images and then we had to sort them into objects which began with the letter 's' and objects which didn't. The children did a brilliant job at sorting all of the pictures out!
Thank you to all the mums who came to our
Mother's Day tea party!
It was a great success!

EXCITING NEW OUTDOOR AREA IN NURSERY!!
We are developing a MUD KITCHEN outdoors in the Nursery. We are all very excited and keen to open it. Many thanks to Mr Lambert for building us our outdoor kitchen unit!
We now need your help in stocking it! We would be very grateful for donations of any old utensils, pots, pans etc. which you think we might be able to use. We will also need wellies so that the children will not get their shoes muddy! If you know anyone with older children who might have grown out of their wellies please ask them to donate to us. Thanks to your contributions to our Nursery fund we will be able to provide some waterproof coveralls for the children to share.
