Term 5 Week 2


This week in Nursery celebrated Diversity Day, as part of the celebrations we read Faces; My Body, Your Body looking at how we are the same and different and dressed up to represent our cultural heritage. Linked to our enquiry What is Healthy? We were Authors reading Handa's Surprise and enjoyed retelling the story with props and tasting fruits from the story. We have also developed our artistic skills by string painting and marble painting to create animals from the story.

We have had a busy start to our Enquiry What Grows? with the arrival of caterpillars and planting and caring for sunflower seeds

Term 3


Happy New Year! We hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday and welcome back to Nursery. Our enquiry for this term is "I wonder what I feel?" and we will be taking part in a variety of activities such as exploring different textures and talking about our emotions and how we feel. We will be using Class Dojo to share and celebrate our play in Nursery. If you have any problems accessing this please come and see us. 


We are starting our enquiry by reading the story "We're Going on a Bear Hunt"  by Michael Rosen and are enjoying listening and retelling the story in different ways such as with story props. 


We like to go out in all weathers and are especially enjoying this cold spell, please make sure your child comes to Nursery every day in warm clothes: coat, hat, gloves all labelled. You are welcome to send in wellie boots but we do have a supply here that children can borrow. 

Here is our Home Learning for Term 3.

Our enquiry this term is, I wonder what print is! So far we have focused on the stories, The Stickman, Dear Zoo and Dear Santa.
