Summer Term 1 - Week 1 in Nursery!

posted 12 May 2017, 06:10 by Vicki Bowes


We have had a really exciting week in nursery learning and having fun.


Our focus story this week has been ‘There’s a house inside my mummy.’ This has helped to think about the changes that happen to us as we grow. Some of us have also shared pictures of ourselves when we were young. 


This week we have started ‘Yogabugs’ for our PE sessions. Becky comes in to teach us this. She helps us to make our yoga movements through stories.


On Tuesday Ash came to see us. He is a football freestyler. He showed us a lot of tricks and then we tried to do them ourselves!


We love working in the areas and we have challenges in nursery that help us to develop our learning.

This week was the launch of our ‘early words together’ club. Some children came to school to work on their communication and language skills with their parents. We had lots of fun.


On Friday we got some new visitors in school. We have got 5 very tiny but very hungry caterpillars. We can’t wait to see what is going to happen with them.

Week 24 in Nursery!

We have had a really exciting week in nursery learning and having fun.


Our focus story this week has been Little Red Riding Hood. This has made us think about stranger danger and how we must not talk to strangers.


In literacy this week we created a story map for the story of Little Red Riding Hood. We all worked together to draw pictures and retell the story.

On our maths table this week we have had counting fingers. The fingers are helping us to count and recognise numbers.


We found a lot of boxes in nursery this week and we had great fun making them into different things. We made robots, animals, cars and even a train. It was brilliant.


During our cooking session this week we made sandwiches. Spreading butter on the bread is good for fine motor development this will then help us with our writing.


We are enjoying working in different areas for our IT sessions. Some of us stay in the nursery working on the ipads and some of us go down to the computer suite.

Week 22 in Nursery!

It was great to get back to nursery after our half term break. This term we are concentrating on traditional tales.


Our focus story this week has been Goldilocks and the three bears. We have enjoyed listening to and re-enacting this story this week. Most of us were familiar with the story.


In our literacy this week we received an important message off Daddy Bear via the internet. He told us that Baby Bear was very unhappy and needed a picture to cheer him up because Goldilocks had ruined the cottage.


In maths this week we have been ordering according to size. The three bears went on a picnic and we needed to sort out which bowl belonged to Daddy Bear, Mammy Bear and Baby Bear. Mrs Cook kept getting it all mixed up!


In forest schools this week we went outside looking for materials to create our own Goldilocks. We had lots of fun.

This week we celebrated World Book Day. Most of us came in our pyjamas and we met Bedtime Story Bear. Bedtime Story Bear is going to go home with one of us every day for a bedtime story.


On Tuesday it was Shrove Tuesday and we made pancakes. We put syrup, chocolate spread or jam on them. They were delicious!

We have had another exciting week in nursery, we have been thinking about our emotions.


Our focus story this week has been Inside Out. We have explored the different emotions from the story and we now think about how we are feeling when we come to nursery. Most of us are happy like Joy. 


We use the ipads in IT this week. We used an app called ‘Math for kids.’ We can use this app at home.


In maths this week we have been shape detectives. We went exploring around school to identify shapes in the environment. Lewis was such a superstar he demonstrated his skills to Mrs Steele.


In our literacy this week we have talked about and recorded what makes us happy. We had lots of ideas, our friends, family and going swimming are a few examples.

Week 19 in Nursery!

We have had another exciting week in nursery, we have continued to follow the theme of Toy Story.


In Toy Story Andy has a favourite toy, this week we were able to bring our favourite toy to school. Our teachers were very impressed with our ability to work together and share. 


This week in our PE lesson we used hoops to practise our positional language. We went ‘in’ the hoops, ‘under’ the hoops and next to the hoops. Some of us even went through the hoops. We had lots of fun.

The morning children investigated how different objects fall. Some things float like a feather and some things drop like a stone. 


On Friday morning we made banana cakes with Mrs Dean. They were delicious. We love the opportunity to cook and eat different foods.

We have had an exciting week in nursery, we were visited by the characters from Toy Story!


Our focus story this week has been ‘Toy Story.’ We have talked a lot about friendships and what makes a good friend.


We visited the computer suite this week and we designed our own Rex dinosaur. Our mouse control is improving and we are finding it easier.


The afternoon children investigated how different objects fall. Some things float like a feather and some things drop like a stone. The morning children are going to be doing this investigation next week.


In our maths lesson this week we made a pictogram. We wanted to find out which Toy Story character was our favourite. Woody was our favourite.


We made some cookies in nursery this week, they were delicious! We can follow this recipe at home to make some more. Yum, yum. http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1959642/easy-chocolate-chip-cookies

We have had an exciting start to the New Year in nursery and we were all pleased to get back into a routine. It was fabulous to see the children ready in their uniforms ready to learning.


Our focus story this week has been ‘The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.’ We concentrated on the part of the story where Lucy enters the wardrobe for the first time. She comes out of the other side into a new world.


We visited the computer suite this week and we needed to put the animals into the fields at the farm.


The afternoon children investigated ice during their topic session this week. We found it fascinating to touch it and explore what happens to it when it gets warm. The morning children are going to be doing this investigation next week.


In our maths lesson this week we became investigators. We went around the school trying to find things that were longer and shorter than a ruler. We had lots of fun.

Week 12 in Nursery!

It has been another busy week in nursery. It all started on Monday when the afternoon children had the opportunity to watch a performance of Sleeping Beauty. It was very exciting.


Our focus story this week has been ‘This is the Bear.’ A dog pushed a bear into the bin and he ended up at the dump! The boy and the dog went to search for him.


In maths this week we have continued to learn about 2D shapes and their properties. We then continued our learning in the computer suite.


We have had some cold wintry days this week. When we went outside everything was white! Then we found some frozen water. When we stood it the ice broke into lots of pieces. It made our fingers cold.


On Wednesday we went for a walk to Corpus Christi church. We looked at and counted lots of crosses, we saw some statues and we were allowed to go up to the top of the church to look down. We could see everything.


Christmas has arrived in school this week. We have decorations up in the classroom and the school corridors. If you come to school for the Christmas fayre on Thursday you will also be able to visit Narnia. We are looking forward to and exciting end to the year.


We have continued to prepare for the Caldicotes Christmas performance of ‘A Midwife Crisis.’ Our singing is going to impress the audience.

It has been a very busy birthday week in nursery. Our 2 dragons Emerald and Sapphire had their birthday this week. They are now 4 years old.


Our focus story this week has been ‘Kippers birthday.’ Kipper got all confused about what day his birthday was on and he ended up eating his birthday cake without his friends. Luckily his friends arrived to sort everything out.


Wednesday was such an exciting day in nursery. We prepared food and had a birthday party for Emerald and Sapphire. Everyone helped to make it a fantastic celebration.


Some of the children in nursery have been working had to mix primary colours. Kenton worked so hard that Mrs Steele gave him a principle award.


We have continued to enjoy using our outside area this week but please remember that now the weather is getting colder we need to have suitable outdoor clothing. It is also helpful if we bring our own wellies to nursery.


When we worked in the computer suite this week we created our own birthday cakes designs for Emerald and Sapphire. Some of the cakes had very strange ingredients in them!


On Friday it was Children in Need day. We dressed up in spots and raised money for children less fortunate than ourselves.


During our forest schools session on Friday we collected leaves to make a eco-friendly collage of Pudsey bear.
