Its week 1 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in nursery…………………….

We have had a busy first week back in nursery! We have been learning about bonfire night and have been making our own lanterns for the lantern parade. We have also been using a variety of materials to make fantastic firework pictures in the creative area. In literacy we have been reading the story ‘Owl Babies’ and taking part in lots of owl themed activities in provision. We have been making owl masks, retelling the story using owl props, making owls using the playdough and drawing our favourite pictures from the story. We ended the week with a visit from Wise Owl Falconry, the children got to watch a real life flying session and even got to hold an owl for a photograph!

Owl Visit for Nursery & Reception Children - Friday 5th November

Dear Parent / Carer, 

As part of our topic on ‘Autumn’, we have been looking at nocturnal and woodland animals.   

On Friday 5th November we have invited the Wise Owl Falconry to visit us with a range of birds including owls to support our understanding of their way of life. To help us fund this visit we are asking for a contribution of £3.00 to be payable via the arbor app which will include a photo of your child with a bird.  

The company and the school have put a detailed risk assessment to ensure all safety measures are in place and in line with government guidelines. 

 In the meantime, why not visit their website with your child at https://www.wise-owl.co.uk/  and discuss different birds of prey 

 

Thank you in advance for your support. 

 

Yours sincerely, 

Owl Visit for Nursery & Reception Children - Friday 5th November

 


 


Its the end of Autumn 1 term 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in nursery…………………….

What a fantastic start to Autumn term nursery have had we our existing and new children. We have been busy learning all about our new classroom and exploring all the areas. We are getting very good at remembering where all the toys are resources go so, we can put everything away at tidy up time!

We have had so much fun learning lots of new songs with our friends - some songs we use our tap sticks to tap to the beat! It’s so exciting to listen to music and learn new actions.

We have also been using a variety of mark making tools including felt tips, paint and even leaves to collage! We have created representations of our friends, family and even some animals from the ‘Three Bears Story’.

Now we are settled back into nursery we have been enjoying trying new foods and skills at snack time. Some of us are learning the names of new foods and talking about what we like, some of us are using our snack mats to make sentences about what we like and some of us are even telling our friends what food we like to eat!

In our outdoor area we have been looking at changes in the playground to look for signs of autumn. We went to pick apples from our fabulous apple trees and made apple strudel after carefully chopping them into small pieces. We have also been collecting leaves and talking about what beautiful colours we can see.

We have also been doing some counting while we collect the leaves- some of us were able to find ‘more’ brown leaves! We are so excited to see what learning we are going to do next! Remember to ask us all about our learning at home - we are so excited to tell you all about it!

Its week 7 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in nursery…………………….

This week in nursery we have been reading the story ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’. In the maths area we have been counting bears and matching them to the correct numeral. In the literacy area we have been ordering the story and drawing our favourite scene. We made bear headbands on the creative table and pretended to go on a bear hunt in our outdoor area, swishing through the long grass and finding a bear in the cave! We can’t wait for next week where we will continue our learning with the story and joining in with more bear themed learning!
