Nursery Fun.

The nursery children have been busy having lots of fun today. As it was such a lovely day they had their P.E lesson outdoors. To develop their hand eye coordination they practised throwing and catching. They also practised balancing bean bags and quoits, and rolling hoops.They’ll be ready when sports day arrives!

Under the sea

This week we have been activating our prior knowledge in preparation for our new topic of ‘under the sea’. We have explored and observed different items that you might find in the sea and we have shared lots of facts and information that we already know. We explored our colourful ‘coral reef’ looking for and sorting ‘under the sea’ creatures and then used books to find out more about them. Some of the children also enjoyed using HWB to research some of the new creatures and vocabulary that we have already come across.
An enthusiastic start to our new topic…we can’t wait to learn more!

Waffles and Weaving!

Our special sound of the week this week is ‘w’, so the nursery children made some delicious waffles. First we toasted the waffles then the children  chose from a selection of tasty toppings. Yummy! Then they went outside to do some weaving. They threaded some brightly coloured ribbon through the fence in the nursery yard. The yard looks nice and colourful now.

Planting seeds.

The nursery and reception children have had a busy morning. They  listened to the story Jasper’s Beanstalk, then they went outside to do their own planting. They participated in a variety of garden themed activities. They painted a picture of a beanstalk, sorted different coloured beans into plant pots, played giant dominos, ordered stones into size, as well as lots of other activities. They all had a lovely morning, even the sun came out, eventually!

Nursery’s Feathered Friends.

We had some interesting visitors in nursery today. Mrs Cusack very kindly brought her chicks over for a visit. The children were very excited and couldn’t wait to hold them.  They were very gentle and very quiet not to frighten them. The children thoroughly enjoyed spending time with the chicks. Diolch Mrs Cusack.

The children designed their own Easter flower baskets. They used their understanding of pattern work from maths to create repeating patterns with the petals. The flowers look fantastic and the children are looking forward to bringing them home with some extra little Easter treats included too…
