Nursery have enjoyed listening to the story 'The Gingerbread Man' this week. We made some delicious gingerbread man biscuits and a ginger cake. We found out where ginger comes from and planted our own ginger plant. In the creative area we made collage pictures of a gingerbread man and even made them smell like a gingerbread man by sprinkling on some cinnamon. We have done some interesting investigations to test what happens to a gingerbread man biscuit if it goes in water and made boats to help the gingerbread man cross safely across the river. We also tested the gingerbread man biscuits in different liquids to see what happened. In Little Movers we ran as fast as we could like gingerbread men and practised our balancing skills to balance a beanbag on our head like a fox!
Nursery children had lots of fun learning all about Chinese New Year. We have been very busy in our creative area practising our cutting skills to make Chinese lanterns and dragon masks. We even made a big dragon's head out of junk materials to use in our dragon dance. We took what we had made into the hall and learnt a traditional dragon dance. We made and tasted some Chinese food including noodles, egg fried rice, chicken curry and spring rolls. What an exciting week we had celebrating!
What a fantastic Christmas party we had today! The children had lots of fun playing party games and showing off their dance moves. We even had an extra special visitor who came to give the nursery children an early Christmas present!
We are all very proud of our Nursery children this week. They were so brave to stand on the stage and sing in their first Nativity. They have done a fantastic job of learning all the songs and put on a wonderful performance. We hope everyone who came to watch enjoyed it as much as we did.
Thank you to everyone who came to decorate Christmas decorations with their child in nursery today. The decorations look lovely and the children seemed to have lots of fun.
This week we held a non-uniform day in nursery to support Children in Need and we all wore something spotty. We baked and decorated cakes with spots and made a donation for a worthwhile cause.
Thank you for everyone who came to our 'Wish Upon a Star' in nursery this week. The children enjoyed the opportunity to spend time with their family in nursery and we got some excellent feedback from parents who came. The stars look fantastic displayed in nursery and everyone went home covered in glitter and sparkles!!
Nursery children had lots of fun finding out about Italy during our International week last week. We read the stories 'Peppa Pig goes on holiday' and 'Topsy and Tim go on an aeroplane' and talked about holidays that we have been on. We enjoyed exploring the sensory trays filled with pasta and spaghetti and used different materials to make a collage of the Italy flag. During the week we made and tasted some delicious Italian food... we tried spaghetti bolognese, pepperoni pizza and risotto. We also used construction kits and junk materials to build some famous Italian landmarks such as the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Colosseum.
Nursery children have had a fantastic start to the year. We are very proud of our new children and how well they have settled into their new routines. Take a look at some of the photos of what we've been up to.
Nursery have enjoyed their first 'Little Movers' PE sessions this week. They joined in with songs with actions, practised different movements and took part in some team races. They did a fantastic job and everyone said how well they did at listening and joining in. 'Little Movers' will be coming to nursery every Monday afternoon and Thursday morning. Children can come to their nursery session already dressed in PE/sports clothes.
What a fantastic start to the new year we have had in nursery. Our nursery staff are so proud of how we have settled in.
We have been painting our self portraits and printing handprints. Today we made some funny faces using different types of fruit and then enjoyed eating them too! We have been singing lots of songs and listening to some stories. Our favourites so far have been ‘No-Bot the Rot’ and ‘There’s a Monster in your Book.’
We will keep you updated with lots photos of what we have been doing at nursery so keep your eye out for future blogs!!
