The Christmas Fair
We are getting ready for the Christmas fair in nursery. Thank you so much to those who have brought in their decorated cups or a bottle for the bottle stall.
We have decided to begin a baking activity twice a week. The children will take it in turns to take part but will make enough for all their friends to share. Thank you for all your kind donations to this.
Diwali - November 2018
In the nursery we have had lots of fun learning about the festival of Diwali, often called the festival of lights. The children heard the story of Rama and Sita and then acted the story out using masks. We also took part in a special shiny day which included dressing up and taking part in shiny activities.
We created our own Goose Fair in the nursery garden. Some children took on the role of ticket sellers or collectors. We also broke into a coconut and tried traditional fair food.
Celebrating the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
We celebrated in style by wearing our party clothes, having a banquet, dancing and taking part in lots of different activities.
Summer Term 2017- Amazing Animals
We started the term investigating minibeasts. We looked at real minibeasts, watched tadpoles and learnt about the life cycle of a frog. We had live caterplllars and studied them over the weeks, spinning their cocoons and releasing them as butterflies. We enjoyed the Very Hungry Caterpillar story and made our own fruit salad.
We went on a minibeast hunt in the wildlife garden and ticked off any we found, inclyding photos of them.
We finished our minibeast topic with an Ugly bug Ball. The children dressed up, we sang songs and played games and had amazing bug food.
This last half term we moved onto zoo animals. We learnt lots of interesting facts, played in a jungle area and finished the topic off with a wonderful trip to Twycross Zoo.
We had a wonderful Nursery Sports and Teddy Bear's Picnic. A lovely sunny day too.
Thank you everyone for coming along.
Autumn Term 2015-
Me and My marvellous World. This term we focus on looking at ourselves, making new friends and all the wonderful festivals and celebrations such as Goose Fair, Autumn & Harvest, Bonfire Night, Diwali and of course the magic of Christmas.
We enjoyed our Diwali celebrations.
We learnt about the story of Rama and Sita and how the 10 headed monster captured Sita.
We danced to Indian music and played in the Indian kitchen. We made divas in the playdough, tasted some Indian food and painted some lovely illustrations from the story. What a fun and busy week we had.
Our Bonfire celebrations.
We built a bonfire, made fireworks, painted bright firework pictures and tasted yummy bonfire potatoes
We explored lots about this beautiful season. Lovely Autumn colours. Children brought in conkers, acorns, beech nuts, and leaves.
