Children in need!

By Acorns, in Nursery - Friday, 15 November 2019

Today we have been raising money for children in need. We made a donation of £1 and have been wearing bright and spotty clothing to school. We have also been making our own pudsey masks, what do you think? We love them!

Perfect Pizzas

By Acorns, in Nursery - Friday, 18 October 2019

This week in nursery, we have been making pizzas. First we had to wash our hands, incase they were dirty. After, we prepared the mushrooms, tomatoes, pepper, pineapple and grated the cheese. We started by spreading the passata onto our flatbread. Next, we chose the toppings that we liked the best. We sprinkled the cheese on top to finish. Once our pizzas had been made we put them into the oven for 15 minutes. When we took the pizzas out, we noticed that the cheese had melted! We were very excited to try them. They tasted delicious!

Autumn

By Nursery, in Nursery - Friday, 11 October 2019

In Nursery we noticed that the leaves had fallen from the trees. We have been learning about Autumn and the changes to our environment. We decided to work as a team to put all of the leaves into a big pile! We waited for the wind to blow because it made the leaves fly even higher. When the leaves blew everywhere, it made us feel very excited!

Animal club

By Nursery, in Nursery - Friday, 5 July 2019

This week we went to reception. We visited the animals and learnt how to look after them. We had to clean their cages and remove the waste. We put ice-cold water bottles in the cages, to cool the animals down when they get hot. We brought our home grown broccoli and fed it to the guinea pigs and the rabbits. We also learnt that we must wash our hands when handling the animals. We look forward to seeing them every day when we move to reception in September!

Visiting the Animals

By Nursery, in Nursery - Friday, 24 May 2019

We have been growing some radishes. We decided we would like to feed the radishes to the animals, in Reception. We fed rabbits, chickens and guinea pigs. When we were in the chicken coop, we also found an egg. We enjoyed visiting the animals and can not wait to look after them when we are in Reception.

Numbers

By Nursery, in Nursery - Friday, 17 May 2019

Mr Croc, the crocodile, was trying to learn about numbers. He had some pictures with numbers along the bottom. Unfortunately, he has very sharp teeth and when he was looking closely at the pictures, his teeth shredded them and the numbers got muddled up! We decided to help him and put the numbers back in order. If we got stuck we used numberlines to help us. Mr Croc was very pleased that we could help him.

The Pond

By Nursery, in Nursery - Friday, 3 May 2019

After watching our class assembly, Mr Staples said we deserved a treat. He suggested that we went to the pond. We walked to the upper building and found the new pond. It was quite deep so we made sure we did not get too close. We saw lots of pond creatures there. We would like to go back again another day to see if we can spot anything else.

Secret Reader

By Nursery , in Nursery - Friday, 26 April 2019

Every Thursday we have a ‘Secret Reader’ in Nursery. We are not told who will read to us at story time, the surprise visitor simply enters our classroom. This week Mrs Pilgrim came to read to us with her baby! We were very excited to see them and really enjoyed the story.

 

We would love to have more secret readers from mums, dads, uncles, aunties, grandparents. etc. to come and read to us.

If you would like to be a secret reader all you need to do is let your child’s class teacher know, bring your own favourite children’s book and keep it a secret!!!

Bikes and Trikes

By Nursery, in Nursery - Friday, 22 March 2019

This week we have been travelling in different ways. We have been using the bikes, scooters and trikes. It was a bit tricky to push the pedals with our feet but we didn’t give up. To make sure we were safe we drew a track with chalk that we could follow. We thought that using the bikes, scooters and trikes was really fun and exciting.

Red Nose Day

By Nursery, in Nursery - Friday, 15 March 2019

Today is Red Nose Day. We have been raising awareness and money for the charity Comic Relief. We wore red noses and red clothes. We also brought in £1 to donate to Comic Relief, the money we have donated will go to help other children and families in our country and in different countries. Thank you for your donations.
