Summer 2 Term learning -2019

This term Nursery have been looking at mini beasts. We did some still life drawings of snails then we had a go at drawing the snail’s shell and decorating it by finger painting. We also had some caterpillars which we looked after and watched them spin their chrysalis and turn into butterflies. Then we got creative making our own butterflies by painting one side and folding it together. We finished off our summer term with Nursery sports morning and a picnic lunch.

Summer 1 Term learning -2019

This half term Nursery has been learning all about Plants. We learnt about what a plants needs to help it grow, then we planted broad beans and sunflowers. Nursery looked at where fruit and vegetables grow - under the ground or above the ground. We then worked in pairs to create a flower using different vegetables. As the sun has been shining we went on an observational walk to see what plants grow in our school. To finish off our learning we made delicious Oreo mud cups. We crushed the Oreo biscuits, added chocolate custard and a wiggley gummy worm.

Spring 2 Term learning -2019

This term we have learnt the story of “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.” We can tell the story without using the story book. We drew our favourite part of the story on a long piece of paper. It is displayed in our classroom. 

This week we were learning all about Easter. We role played the Last Supper. We ate bread to represent the body of Jesus so we would remember him and we drank fizzy vimto to represent his blood. We learnt about forgiving others when they do something wrong – just as Jesus taught us.

Spring 1 Term learning -2019

This half term in Nursery we have been learning all about winter. We have looked at the different animals in the Arctic and Antarctic. Here are some photos of us saving the animals from the ice.

We have also celebrated Chinese New Year. We tasted some delicious noodles. We had to eat them with chopsticks. It was very difficult!

Autumn 2 Term learning -2018

This half term started with our focus on Remembrance and the 100 year anniversary of the end of the 1st World War. Nursery children drew poppies and took part in a service of Remembrance with their Year 3 buddies.

As the half term continued, the Nursery children became noticeably more settled in the classroom environment. They have enjoyed investigating all areas inside and outside.

Many children can now pedal the bikes, climb on the tyres and wall bars and role play in our outside building area.

They have also taken a great interest in counting, reading and writing numbers throughout the half term.


Autumn 1 Term learning -2018

In Nursery, we spent the first few weeks of the half term getting to know each other, getting to know all the areas in the classroom and outside area and also learning all the rules and expectations.

When we understood all the boundaries and were ready to investigate and explore our surroundings further we looked at the signs of autumn around us. We used pumpkins, leaves and conkers for art work, counting and close observation. We really enjoyed cutting up the pumpkins and counting the leaves.

Two of our favourite things are play dough and our amazing mud kitchen. Everyone wants to help Mrs Clancy make play dough on a Monday morning or cook dinner for Mrs Tucker. Did you know she really loves mud pies!
