Nursery

Welcome to Nursery -2016 -2017

Check out some of the exciting things we have done this year in Nursery.    Please feel free to leave us a message and let us know what you think!

Our Wheel-A-Thon

CAR WASH

The children have loved playing with bubbles recently and a few children started to wash our bikes and scooters.  We decided to make a great car-wash area and the children have loved using the big sponges and washing the cars.  

We collected the eggs from our chickens and then cooked them and made yummy egg sandwiches.

Baby Boom

Otavio’s baby brother visited our baby clinic in nursery!

 

Suddenly our children have developed an interest with our baby dolls and accessories.  The children have been bathing the babies, changing their nappies, dressing them and showing them lots of love.  

 

Jurassic Park

The nursery children started to build their own ‘Jurassic Park’ and we then continued this interest for the last couple of weeks.

The children worked together and created an amazing park for our dinosaurs.  The children discovered ‘Terry the triceratops’ and an egg and we have been watching it hatch over the week.  The children have been busy painting their predictions, making paper-mache eggs and rescuing frozen dinosaurs.  The children have also loved playing their dinosaur game and we then took this interest outside and had dinosaur races in our costumes.

Terry even had lunch with the rainbow children.

PANCAKE DAY

In nursery we made delicious pancakes.  The children measured the ingredients and whisked the mixture.  Mrs Hamilton-Lee apparently is the ‘best pancake maker in the WORLD!!!!’ The children gave their thumbs up and said they were ‘yummy’.  

We had a pancake race.  It was so much fun!!!!

ART WEEK

paul-klee

The Early Years were given the artist ‘Paul Klee’ to learn about and this painting to inspire our own creativity.    Klee’s style was a blend of surrealism, cubism, and expressionism.  We then looked at some of his other work and we wanted to create our own versions using bricks and shapes.  The role play area was even an art gallery.  The children loved drawing and sticking their work on the walls for their friends to see.  We had a great week!

 

All of a sudden our children had super powers and they were pretending to be different superheroes.  We followed the children’s interest and read the story…..SUPERTATO.  The children loved this story so we decided to have some fun with the Evil Pea.  The next day……our Peppa Pig toys were frozen!!!!!!  Oh no….who did it……..It was Evil Pea!!!!!!!  The children decided they needed to make a cage for him so over the weekend he wouldn’t freeze anymore of our toys.

The model making area was so busy with children creating their traps.  They were choosing the materials and helping each other with the tape and scissors.  They also made their own ‘Super Veg’ and used these to create their own super stories.  Some of the children even performed their show to the class.  

 

 

We also loved ‘The Gingerbread man’, ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’ and the’ Gruffalo’.  The children loved drawing characters from the story and retelling the stories using props.  

The children were drawing their own scary troll.

Lots of children loved the story ‘Going on a bear hunt’so that was our next learning direction.

We retold the story in lots of creative ways and went on our very own bear hunt.

BEDSPREAD DAY

We wanted to know the children’s favourite stories so we asked the nursery to come to school wearing their PJ’s and their book.  We made a cosy environment and spent the morning and afternoon reading their stories and talking about their favourite ones.  

Gold Class

Silver Class

You never guess what happened!  We came back after Christmas and baby bears chair was broken.  The three bears were very confused and trying to work out what had happened.  Luckily the nursery children were on the case and they quickly started looking for clues.  They found a red ribbon, a necklace with the letter ‘G’ on and little footprints.  The children decided it was GOLDILOCKS!  

The children called the police and made wanted posters.  They looked for her around the school and said she needs to say sorry to the three bears.  It was the children who decided that we needed to make real porridge.  “She will come back if she smells the porridge”.  So this is what we did!  And guess what……..it worked!  Goldilocks came back and said she was sorry for breaking the chair.  The children thought it would be nice if the three bears shared their porridge and everyone was happy the mystery was solved.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cassie came to Nursery.  Mrs Hamilton-Lee let her puppy come to school for the day.  She loved all her cuddles!

Our Nursery Vet

What a busy vet we have in nursery!  The children have loved our new role play area.  The children have acted out the different roles of being the vet, the receptionist and being pet owners.  We have loved watching the children play alongside each other.

We read the story of ‘Dear Zoo’ at the beginning of the week and the some of the children were amazing at retelling the story and sequencing the pictures in the correct order.  

The Queen’s Birthday Party

Spring Sponsor Bounce

P1060274

The children had so much fun bouncing!  

They all completed their sponsor bounce and were very tired.  A big thank you to all the money that you have collected.  Hopefully we have enough money to pay for the coaches to go to the farm.  

Well done everyone.  

Easter Crown Making

Lots of the children made fantastic crowns to celebrate the Queens 90th Birthday.  The children had a little parade around the early years wearing their special crowns.

 

Before Easter all the children planted a bean.  We had a competition to see who could grow the tallest beanstalk over Easter.  WOW we have green fingers in nursery……..

Look at some of our Beanstalks!  

P1060406

We will let you know the winners next week!!

A few children made special diaries of their Easter holiday.

 

TRADITIONAL STORIES

This term we have reading our favourite traditional stories.  We started off the term with ‘The Gingerbread Man’ , where we got to make some yummy gingerbread biscuits.  We made sure our biscuits didn’t run away!  The children loved acting out the story and and dressing up as the lady in the story.

The children then wanted to change the role play area into the the bears house.  We read the story and retold it in many ways.

We then moved on to ‘The Three Little Pigs And The Big Bad Wolf’.  This was their favouirte one!  The children loved retelling the story using puppets, playing in the role play area and lots of different activities.

The children loved our role play area!

P1060058

We have been so busy.  Our learning environment had so many opportunities for the children to retell the story.

 Our next story was ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’.  The children enjoyed travelling over the bench and the big troll shouting….

‘Who’s that crossing over my bridge?’

We then got to retell the story outside on out big bridge!  The children drew their own troll masks and then used them in their play.

 Jack and the Beanstalk

To Follow………

ART WEEK

P1050237

The children loved tearing the paper to create their pictures.

We loved their beautiful pictures!

Can you guess what they are?

We also had lots of fun making pictures with lots of different materials.  Maria made a funny face, Lacey and Alana worked together to make a person, Martyna and Adam made a car.

Some of the children worked together to make a house.  

The EYFS Alien Party!!!!

Our final story we read was called ‘Marshmellow for Martians’.  To finish our space theme we asked the children to dress up as aliens.  The costumes were amazing and the children had lots of fun.  We even made rocket sandwiches.  They were yummy.  The children also made musical instruments and we went on an alien parade just like the story.  

We then get very interested with the musical instruments in our school.  The children loved learning about their different sounds and making a band.  The children learnt to make quiet and loud sounds.  The children had ago at being the conductor, they showed the lion for a loud sound and cat for the quiet sound.

Wow What a busy week!

We had a great Christmas Party on Thursday.  We played lots of games and won prizes.

Guess what!  Father Christmas cam to see us!  He listened to us sing some songs and wished us a Merry Christmas!

We then spent the afternoon at the disco and danced lots.

The children performed their amazing ‘Nativity’ and we are so proud of each and everyone!  Thank you too all the parents who came and watched and have left us with kind messages.

Here are some of the photos after the performance.

   

   

     

The Christmas Celebrations begin in Nursery!  

 

This week we are busy writing our letters to Father Christmas.  We cant wait to walk to the post box to post them!  The nursery are also very busy practicing our Christmas songs and learning all our actions to the songs. 

 

    All children love a box!

 The children were on their train apparently to ‘Toys R Us’.  The children looked at the catalogues to see what they can buy!

Check out our new bikes and cars!  The children are really enjoying our balance bikes.

We love our dressing up in Silver Class!

And Mrs Pickett!!

Anti-Bullying Week in Nursery

We read lots of stories about ‘Elmer’.  The children talked about looking different and how important it is to a kind friend.  The children all made a special Elmer mask and we went on an elephant parade around the school.  

FIREWORK WEEK

The children in nursery painted fireworks, made collage firework pictures and made models.  We used different materials such as chalks, pastels and paints.  The children had the choice to use paint brushes, cotton buds, rollers and lots more.  We got very messy and had lots of fun!

Linked to Science Week – We had fun with SOUND!  We listened to loud firework noises and then used our ears to listen to different sounds in the environment.  

We loved playing with our tube phones.  The children found it very fun talking to their friends!

The children have been very busy exploring the nursery environment and making new friends!  Gold and Silver class are so happy at nursery and have settled in well!
