It's party time!

Published on Friday 13 December 2019 by Mrs Fox.

We had lots of fun at our Christmas party and everybody looked fantastic in their smart party clothes! We played musical bumps, pass the parcel, corners and did lots of dancing. The best part was coming back to nursery for some delicious party food.

It’s party time!It’s party time!

This week we have been practising very hard for our Christmas Singalong Show and Mr Hall filmed us for our DVD. We are very proud of all of the children for working so hard to learn the songs and actions. We hope you will enjoy the performance next week!

It’s party time!

Our little rays of sunshine this week are Caiden Newton for joining in with all of our party games and dancing with his friends. It was lovely to see Caiden with a big smile on his face and laughing with his friends. Well done Caiden! Grace Piper for her enthusiasm when the “cheeky elf” visited nursery. She was so excited to find the “mystery elf” and caught him in the act eating our party food. You decided he should have a time out in the office for being so naughty! Brooklyn Wade has been chosen as one of our little rays of sunshine this week for consistently joining in every song and action during our practice for our Christmas singalong. He showed great confidence on the stage. Super singing Brooklyn! Luke Rennie as he has been trying hard to join in with the words and actions of every song during our Christmas Singalong practices. Well done Luke! And finally Oscar Fullarton for his enthusiasm when singing our Christmas songs. He has joined in with every rehearsal and has been a credit to have in the cast. Well done Oscar!

It’s party time!

It's beginning to feel very festive in nursery and we have been getting in the Christmas spirit by making decorations for the Christmas tree! We have also had a cheeky visitor in nursery all the way from the North Pole. The children have loved searching for Elf every day to see what mischief he has been up to.

Our little rays of sunshine this week are Mason Walton for doing an amazing job telling his friends all about his adventures with Bella bear. It was lovely to hear Mason putting together simple sentences! Amelia Westwood for her amazing work in PE. She is so confident on the gym benches now and jumps down landing on two feet. She completed the obstacle course independently and had a huge smile on her face all the way around it. Well done Amelia! Jak Beasley for doing a brilliant job being my leader of our line to walk over for singing practice. He was such a sensible boy walking over making sure he walked slowly enough so his friends could keep up with him. What a great help Jak! Lennon Dent as he has thoroughly enjoyed dressing up this week and singing our Christmas songs. He even made up his own little dance to go with the songs. Super singing Lennon! And finally Neve Dunn for her amazing cutting when making her Christmas tree decoration. She was also great at helping to make a paper chain to decorate the tree. Fantastic scissors skills Neve!

Library Visit!

Published on Thursday 28 November 2019 by Mrs Fox.

We have such a love for stories in nursery and we enjoyed our visit to the local library. We took our books back and got to choose lots of lovely new stories to read back at nursery!

Our little rays of sunshine this week are Alfie Hird for understanding that not only objects but anything can be counted. He was able to confidently count the number of taps that I did on my drum. Awesome work Alfie! Kelsey-Mae Stewart for using actions and sounds to tell me that she would like an elephant book from the library. She walked sensibly to the library and understood the rules during our trip. Well done Kelsey! Mason Johnson for settling back into nursery life so confidently. He comes into group with a huge smile on his face and he is a great role model to his friends. I'm very proud of you Mason! Ruben-John Stewart for having a brilliant week in nursery. He has shown a huge interest in accessing the writing table and he is often found there writing his name and representing numbers in different ways. Well done Ruben! And finally Freddie Sproat for his amazing counting and matching. He was very good at recognising how many stars there were without having to count them. Freddie has also been a superstar when singing our Christmas songs. What a great week Freddie!

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Published on Thursday 21 November 2019 by Mrs Fox.

This week we received a special parcel and a letter from Goldilocks. She needed our help to make her a soft comfy bed. We explored a variety of materials and described their texture to see if we should use them. We then did some sorting and had to decide if the items were hard or soft. When exploring the objects the children used some brilliant words to describe their texture such as “prickly, bumpy, smooth, squishy”

We have also been sorting objects from the story according to their size. We had to give all of the big items to daddy bear, the medium sized items to mammy bear and the small items to baby bear. Everyone did a fantastic job!

Our little rays of sunshine this week are Ellie Chalder for her amazing work in maths. She was able to tell me the capacity of the three bears bowls telling me they were “full, half full or empty” During free flow play Ellie then chose to complete an activity all by herself and correctly put the pictures in order according to their size. Amazing work Ellie! Olivia Ryan for sorting a variety of objects according to their texture. She told me they were hard or soft but used lots of other descriptive words too! Great work Olivia! Sophie Pearson for settling into our group so well and for being a fantastic role model to her peers. She has an amazing imagination and has made all kinds of things this week for Goldilocks including an umbrella and a toilet roll hanger. Well done Sophie! Liberty Heslop for sorting the objects into size order. She also described them as either “big, small or medium” Great job Liberty! And finally Leona Watret for sorting a variety of objects according to their size, with no help at all. Super sorting Leona!

Children in Need

Published on Friday 15 November 2019 by Mrs Fox.

This week we have enjoyed another familiar story “We're Going on a Bear Hunt” The children have been fantastic at joining in with the repeated phrases and re-telling the story with props. We have also been doing some amazing number work by counting and sharing the bears between two caves and recognising that the total still remains the same.

Children in NeedChildren in Need

At our teddy bears picnic we played some games, did some dancing and enjoyed our delicious party food. We would just like to thank everybody that donated food for our picnic, it was all delicious! We would also like to thank everybody who donated money to children in need. We raised an amazing £44.
