Welcome to the Nursery - Autumn Term 2018
This week in the Nursery we have been using our maths skills to count pasta. We painted our pasta pieces to make them sparkly.
During 'Busy Fingers' activities we have been using our fine motor skills to create pictures with cotton buds and beads.
This week we have been thinking about how we can look after animals. We set up a Vets surgery to look after poorly animals in the nursery. During our group activities we thought about how we look after our pets at home.
DEAR - Drop Everything And Read.
This week we have been learning about Autumn. We used our Maths skills to find 3 yellow leaves, 4 red leaves, 2 brown leaves and 1 green leaf. In our groups we created Autumn trees with all our leaves.
Over the last two weeks we have been reading stories about beanstalks. Natalie, from the garden centre, brought us some beans and showed us how to grow them. We put them in plastic bags and have just started to see them sprout. In the nursery garden, we made our own beanstalks and put them in the trees. We also played find the golden egg, taking turns to hide different balls around the garden. We ended the week by sharing our class song, Dingle Dangle Scarecrow, in the Harvest assembly then we planted flowers with our parents.
This week we have been reading Supertato by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet. As a result, we have been busy Superheroes looking for Evil Peas in the Nursery garden, making our own Supertatoes and trapping Evil Peas in poisonous jelly. We also had a visit from some real life superheroes. Our two local PCSO's.
Our book of the week was Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell. After reading the story we decided to write to the Zoo to ask for a pet.
On Thursday they sent us a Bearded Dragon. He eats bugs, so went on a bug hunt. The Bearded Dragon was tricky to look after so we sent him back.
On Friday the Zoo sent us a tortoise. He was getting ready to hibernate so we sent him back. We pretended to be tortoises instead. We really wanted a dog so Mrs Hale brought her dog, Milo in to Nursery for a walk in the woods. We liked him very much.
This week we have been learning to balance.
On Roald Dahl Day we looked at the story, The Giraffe, The Pelly and Me. We decided to have our own cleaning business. We worked together to clean all the toys in the Nursery garden.
Our first few days exploring the Nursery.

Our Learning Journey Last Year
For our End of Year Party we asked the children what them they would like to have. They gave some ideas and then voted for their favourite. They chose a Dinosaur and Fairy/Wizard party!
They were able to come in dressed in their chosen theme. Here are their fabulous costumes...
Hook a Duck!
All the children had 1 minute to hook as many ducks as they could. They all tried really hard and did well.
19/3/18 A Snowy Woodland Wellie Walk
To make the most of the snow while it was here we decided to go on a snowy walk in the school woods. We looked at our footprints in the snow, thought about how different the wood looked with the snow there and the children even took their own photos with their own camera.
Here are some of the pictures the children took with their own camera...
Look at our wonderful costumes!
We're Going on a Gruffalo Hunt!
Today we went on a Gruffalo walk in the woods. We found all the different characters from the book and then made a collage of the Gruffalo out of lots of natural things we had collected and found in the woods.
Thank you to all the parents who joined us for our walk, we hope you enjoyed it!
Woodland Story Time
We went into the school woods to read our Story of the Week; Stick Man. We all sat on the logs in a circle, listening to the story and discussing what was going to happen. We then collected lots of interesting leaves and sticks for the activities we are going to do in Nursery that link to Stick Man.
Planting Our Poppies for Poppy Day (Remembrance Day) 10/11/17
Today we went on a woodland walk through our school woods. We used our listening ears to hear all the different sounds around us and our eyes to see the different natural things. We heard the leaves crunching and rustling on the ground and saw them fall from the trees because it's now Autumn. We hope to use the woods lots more to help our learning in the future.
Look what we found outside at Nursery today!
