Children in need 2019

Nursery had fun dressing up for children in need. They made yummy rice crispy buns and took part in lots of Pudsey bear fun!

Friendship bracelets!

Nursery made their own Friendship bracelets. We talked about how we can be a good friend and show kindness to everyone around us. The children were very grown up and each chose a bracelet out of the basket. We read whose name they had on their bracelet.

Odd Socks Day!

On Tuesday 12th November we wore Odd socks to school as part of our Anti-bullying week work. We have been learning all about friendship and kindness.

Remembrance Day!

We will remember them!

Nursery enjoyed watching an animated video clip named 'Poppies' explaining the significance of Remembrance Day in a child friendly way. The children have made poppies and took part in our whole school Remembrance assembly. The Nursery children made us very proud...they sat so still and were silent for the full 2 minutes! Well done Nursery!!

Bonfire night theme

Last week we used the Glow pads to mark make shapes and letters to go with our marble rolling prints that we did. We also used colourful pom poms for our Maths learning.  We sorted the colours and touch counted them. We made them look like fireworks on black paper!

We also encouraged mark making/ writing/ drawing by covering the table in paper...we had lots of pictures, name writing and interests marks like zig zags, circles, dots and lines.

Fireworks pictures W/C 4.11.19

Nursery used marbles, mixed them into paints and rolled them around their paper in a tray to create Firework pictures. Then they added some glitter!
