Our topic this term will be Sizzling Summer! We will be learning how to stay safe in the sun and exploring what can be found at the sea side.   

Reminders and Routines

  • Children should bring a water bottle and snack to nursery each day. 
  • Please ensure all personal items are named. 
  • Library books need to be returned on a Tuesday so that they can be changed. We encourage the book to be shared together at home along with other stories to develop a love for reading
  • Children should be encouraged to develop their independence by doing as much for themselves as possible, this could be carrying their own belongings or putting on their coat.
  • Please could children attend Nursery in their ‘running clothes’ on a Tuesday and Thursday for PE.
  • Children need to attend Nursery with a named sunhat now that the weather is getting warmer. Suncream will also need to be applied before coming to Nursery. Please send in a bottle of suncream that is named and will stay in their bags.

Butterfly Update - 14.05.21

On Tuesday, we were able to let all 5 butterflies go, after waiting for them all to hatch from their cocoon. We have had lots of fun watching them grow and change from caterpillars into cocoons and then butterflies.Some of the butterflies stayed in the Nursery garden all day, we checked on them all afternoon to make sure they were okay. One of the butterflies flew straight over the top of the school.

Pirate Ship - 30.04.21

Ahoy! We have enjoyed playing on the pirate ship this week. We have taken it in turns to instruct people on how to climb over the wall safely to make it to the other side of the ship. Throughout the week, we have taken it in turns to be the captain of the ship and save everyone from the sharks. We have shown fantastic teamwork this week!

We have enjoyed digging and planting flowers in our new Nursery garden, just outside of our door. We worked as a team to help each other dig a big enough hole for our flowers. We are really looking forward to taking it in turns to water the flowers and watch them grow, we really hope we see lots of bumblebees.

Green fingers

We have been busy working as a team to clear and plant new seeds in our flower bed. First, we collected all of the leaves and put them into the brown bin. Next, we used spades and forks to dig and turn all of the soil over. Finally, we planted wild flower seeds. We can't wait to watch them grow and attract the bees.

Ice Experiment

We have been exploring how ice feels and what happens when we touch ice. We experimented using different ingredients and adding them to the ice, we waited and watched what happened. We also created our own pictures using ice that had been mixed with paint.

Yummy Toast

We have been enjoying trying different toppings on our toast. We have also been trying very hard to spread our own butter on the toast. We then sat in a circle and shared out toast with our friends.
