We will use this page to share information about out topics and activities. It is a great way to start conversations with your child about what they are learning and who they like to play with.

There was lots of excitement throughout school when mysterious footprints appeared on the last day of term. Several Nursery children were convinced a dinosaur had been to visit, as the footprints were far too big for a rabbit! The discovery of chocolate eggs in our Easter baskets convinced most of the children that the Easter Bunny had called... but there are still a few who will be telling everyone about the day a dinosaur came to school!
There were some fabulous Easter Bonnets brought in for the competition at the Spring Fayre.
This week we have been reading, "Monkey Puzzle" by Julia Donaldson. We wondered what we would say if our mums were lost and Butterfly was helping us to find them.
Do you recognise any of these mums?
We acted out one of our favourite stories.
This half-term, we will be reading and retelling stories by one of our favourite authors, Julia Donaldson.
Each week, we have tried different resources as 'snow' in a habitat tray for the arctic animals. This week we have shaving foam!
The children have been very interested in the different animals that live in the Arctic. We have been experimenting with different types of 'snow' in our Arctic small world and making icebergs out of papier-maché. Here are a few snapshots of our Arctic-inspired play.
The children made little snowmen from real snow and from playdough. As they played, they chatted about which ones would melt. This led to the great Nursery snowman experiment!
We enjoyed the frosty weather earlier in the week and were able to link it to our interest in animals that live in snowy places.
Happy new year!
We have had a very busy week getting ready for Christmas. Please ask your child to tell you the story of how Baby Jesus came to be born in a stable in Bethlehem!
Our Christmas Post Office has prompted lots of mark-making and writing this week. We also have lots of very keen postal workers!
Can you spot these triangles in our outdoor area? Nursery children can!
Huge thanks to Mrs Firth, who baked lots of buns for us in Nursery! The children loved setting up their own cake shop. They enjoyed being shop assistants and customers and, once they had sold all the real buns, they continued for the rest of the afternoon using play food from the home corner.
Following the children's interest in playing hairdressers, we have set up a salon in the role-play area! The children have loved being stylists and clients and have been more excited than ever to have visitors who can spare five minutes to be 'pampered'!
This week we have been consolidating our work on numbers 1 and 2. Next week, it will be "All about the number 3!"
We have begun to explore some of the changes happening in the outdoor area. After half-term, we will be asking, "What changes in Autumn and Winter?"
Our latest Supertato story features Gloria, the robot watermelon! We decided to find out what is really inside a watermelon:
Everyone is loving the Supertato stories! Nursery was invaded by evil peas and the children worked tirelessly to capture them...
We have really enjoyed welcoming our new starters to Nursery. We have created a 'Kindness Garden' to celebrate examples of kind hands and friendly faces.
It has been lovely to welcome back our returning Nursery children this week. Everyone has enjoyed exploring the new Outdoor Area and we are looking forward to welcoming our new starters.
