WELCOME TO NURSERY!
The Nursery staff want to start by saying a big well done to all the children who have started in our Nursery over the past few weeks! All the children have settled in so well and are quickly learning the rules and routines of our school!
Curiosity is our Nursery cat. Every day we look in Curiosity's basket to see what special item she has for us. The item she brings introduces the topic for the day and gives us lots to talk about!
Say Hello to Curiosity...
This week we have been learning all about our senses! We have had so much fun using our senses to explore different textures, sounds, colours, tastes and scents.
We have also been continuing to practise the rules and routines of the setting and getting used to school life!
In science this week we have learnt all about our senses and lots of key vovabulary to describe different textures, smells, tastes and sounds. Every day Curiosity Cat has brought us something to explore in her basket and each day we have had to use a different sense to do so. On Monday she brought us a feely bag with different textures, on Tuesday some different herbs and spices to smell, on Wednesday we played I spy using our sight, on Thursday we played 'Old Macdonald' listening to animal sounds and on Friday we tasted some fruits!
What a fun week!
Art and DT

Weeks 1 and 2
During the first few weeks we have focussed on teaching the children about all the different areas of learning in our Nursery. The staff have been teaching the children the rules of our nursery such as, wearing an apron to paint and where to put their pictures to dry, tidying up and looking after our toys and how to sit smartly on the carpet during learning time.
We especially enjoyed playing with lots of different sized boxes outside in the sunshine. The children made rockets, trains and we even painted the boxes to decorate them. Here are some of our children having fun exploring our Nursery...
This week the children have been learning all about themselves in our topic 'Marvellous Me'!
We have been using mirrors to look closely at ourselves and describe the way we look and how we are different to our friends. The children have made self portraits using a range of media such as pencils, paints and collage materials.
