Welcome to the Nursery Class!


Welcome to Nursery!

Hello and welcome to the Nursery class page. Mrs Dolby teaches the Nursery children with Mrs Jones, Mrs Page and Mrs Bell. 

We are really excited for this year as we have lots of fun things planned! 


Spring Term 1 2021


Another exciting week looking at the traditional tale of The Elves and The Shoemaker. We have designed shoes, measured feet, paired different shoes and even counted how many pairs of shoes it would take to fill a Dinosaur footprint! The children have enjoyed practising their cutting skills in making split pin elves in addition to using different materials to make new clothes for the elves. 

Traditional Tales: Goldilocks and The Three Bear


This week the children have enjoyed the story of Goldilocks and The Three Bears and have done some lovely activities associated with the story. Sizing objects from small, medium large. Sorting objects in to 'hard' and 'soft'. Re-telling the story in their own words, using props they have found in the home. Filling different size containers with porridge oats. Getting creative with painted paper plate bears and delicious bear toast!

The children have been learning all about 'The North Pole'. They have looked and discussed animals that live in the Arctic and what clothing you would need to wear to keep warm.  They have explored and investigated ice using different materials and methods to see the effects of ice melting. They have made some amazing Arctic animals and drawings, as well as practising their cutting skills to make snowflakes.


In October, the children looked and investigated pumpkins. We looked inside and described what it felt like. We scooped the seeds out and let them dry out indoors in the nursery. In December, the children each potted a pumpkin seed and took it home over the Christmas period. They had to ensure that it had sunlight, warmth, and water.  

Take a look at our success.

Merry Christmas everyone 

We wish you a Merry Christmas !

In Nursery we have been learning about the story of ‘Christmas’. They have investigated our curiosity cube which contains the Nativity scene. Drawn their own Nativity pictures and have dressed and acted out their own Nativity with the songs we have learnt for ‘Our Very Own Nativity’.

Celebrating St Andrews Day

Anti-bullying week

We have taken time to talk about and discuss what a good friend means. We have introduced new vocabulary: Kind, caring, gentle, truthful, honest, interested, thoughtful, understanding to describe ‘ a good friend’.


We have been celebrating ‘Diwali’. The Hindu festival of light. The children have decorated Rangoli patterns using coloured rice. Modelled and painted clay to make their own Divas. We looked at and painted Mehndi patterns on our hands. They have tasted traditional Indian cuisine and have prepared their own recipes using traditional Hindu ingredients in our role play kitchen. 

Remembrance Day 


The children have been learning about ‘Remembrance Day’ which is also called ‘Poppy Day’. We use Poppy Day to remember the soldiers, sailors and airmen who have died. The children have painted poppies onto stones which we displayed outside, created poppies from play dough and painted their own poppies. On Wednesday we also took part in the 2 minute silence. 

Welcome back to nursery Autumn term 2

Our new additions to the outdoor area

Autumn 2020

Following our Autumn theme, we have looked at and investigated pumpkins and squashes this week. The children have used their observational skills to draw and paint pumpkins and different squash. We have been really impressed with their art work. We have used descriptive words ‘bumpy, smooth, circular, round to describe what we see. Slimy, gooey, wet, slippery, stringy to describe what we felt when we placed our hands inside the pumpkin.   We are drying out the oval seeds found inside the pumpkin and plan to plant them next term as part of our science investigation to see what happens!
