Dear All,

We enjoyed our first week of our Travel and Transport Theme last week and it was made extra special thanks to our two parent volunteers who popped into to Nursery to share their knowledge with us. Harriet's mum brought Hatty's Grandad's special book that shows photographs and information of a lifetimes work of Fuller and Sons freight and haulage buisness. Carter's Dad also popped by to talk to us about his job as a train conductor. We found out lots of information about trains and the rails and the tasks of a conductor. We also learnt alot about keeping safe on trains and on train platforms when travalling by rail around Birmingham.

THANK YOU so much for giving up your time.

Dinosaur Stomp

User Rating:  / 1

Hi All,

Happy New Year! Nursery have had a brillant start to the new year. We loved talking about our Christmas news with our friends and teachers. We have been learning the letter sound 'd' last week and so had lots of dinosaur fun. We were particularily good at copying rhythms and patterns on the percussion instrument to match the rhythm in the book 'Dinosaurumpus'. We loved making ankle musical instruments to stomp our feet to the beat of the music.

In Forest activities we enjoyed learning about British woodland animals. We played a game were we had to find the matching animal from clues. We also loved playing the animal movement game where we explored how foxes, deer, squirrels, sparrows and hedgehogs might move around the woodlands and why.

A Windy Day

User Rating:  / 1

Hi All,

Please enjoy the following past weeks photos. We found out about the Three Pigs learning to describe the characters in the story in our Puppet Theatre and then writing about the Big Bad Wolf. We thought of lots of fantastic describing words. We became investigators in Nursery on Wednesday and explored the strength of sticks, straw and brick after we built our own pig house and then tested our structures with 'The Big Bad Wolf' hair dryer. It was very exciting and encouraged lots of talk about textures and materials. Friday was extra windy so for Forest activities we decided to make a simple kite and have a Windy Walk around our school grounds. Mrs Duckers enjoyed her first days wiith Nursery and loved teaching 's' and making a snowman picture with them.

We loved making Tia Ten's sparkly clean hands and practising our number formation. Her Chinese Restaurant was a popular role play - Dumpling soup anyone? And we loved making numbers in Tia Ten's lucky red glitter. The children loved finding out where China and the other countries of the world were on our giant floor map.

Hi All,

We have got off to a great start with out Ten town activities. What a surprise on monday morning when we discovered the roleplay had changed to Ten town land and King One's castle. There was even a zero pond. We went to visit our own school pond in the Oaks plaground and found out it is the same shape.We made our own zero pond in the water tray and cleared out all the rubish and plastic. Our King One crowns were a big hit and gave us lots of practise 'top to go there you go'. Thank you for the fabulous number posters. We are sharing a few each day.

We have really enjoyed exploring the season of winter. We worked hard to recognise all the letters in our name in these Autumn name hunt pictures. We loved our Forest Fridayl activities too. We went on a signs of Autumn hunt and we were very interested in the mushrooms we discovered and then we were so excited when we discovered a bright red Toadstool too. We used the Autumn leaves around us to thread necklaces and make our own collages. We looked forward to our hot chocolate after a busy session.

Hi all,

We have had a great few weeks finding out about living things!. We really enjoyed learning about the parts of plant and which parts we can eat. All of them! We were very gentle planting our own seeds and seedlings and are helping the teachers look after them as they start to grow. We went minibeast hunting despite the weather and found lots of of millipedes and worms! We made our own minibeast model from clay and pipe cleaners. We also als madet the life cycle of a butterfly and enjoyed some 'Very Hungry Caterpillar' yoga!

A very big welcome back to Miss Barrell who will be working morning sessions with us again.

A Bear Hunt in Nursery!

User Rating:  / 1

Sorry we have not updated the blog for some time wer have had a few technical problems.

The children absolutely loved our week on 'Going on a Bear Hunt' they enjoyed so many different activities. We loved going on a real hunt around the school saying the story as we went. It was very fun and little scary when we found the bear and had to run all the way back to Nursery! We used our sense of touch all week to explore and describe different textures. Our favourite activity was the 'bare foot' walk. The mud felt so squishy between our toes!
