Welcome to Nursery.





Summer Term


This term we started of with a topic all about space. We were lucky to have a visit from the space dome and Leicester Space Center. We got to sit inside and learn about each of the planets in our Solar System. We have had a space role play in our classroom and even had an Alien crash landed in our Wildlife Area!


One of our favourite space stories was 'Aliens Love Underpants'. We ordered the story using pictures and retold the story in our own words.


We also used pants to solve addition problems by counting all of the pants to find the total or by counting on in our head.


We have also been thinking about the names and properties of 2D shapes and have used them to make space pictures!



Spring Term


During the first half of the Spring Term we didn't go to Forest School due to the colder weather. Instead we did lots of cooking! Some of the things we made were cheese puffs, toast and wraps! 


We have learnt lots about different Traditional Tales too. We looked at stories such as The Three Little Pigs, The Gingerbread Man and The Runaway Pancake. 


We made houses out of sticks, straws and bricks for The Three Little Pigs, and challenged ourselves to make them stand up!


We also celebrated Pancake Day in Nursery. We made the batter and ate the delicious pancakes after they were cooked!


Towards the end of the term we celebrated Easter. We had an Easter Egg hunt, an egg rolling competition and took part in the whole school Easter Bonnet Parade.


Autumn Term 2018

Welcome to Nursery.


Both Morning and Afternoon Nursery children have Forest School every Monday. They need a pair of wellies to be kept at school and are able to come into Nursery in their own clothes. These must be long sleeves and trousers and something you aren't worried about getting muddy! We are currently learning Forest School rules that will keep us safe but will soon be going to Bills Woods.


Nursery Children take part in Zumbini sessions every Wednesday. They need a named PE kit (t-shirt, shorts and pumps) in school. Zumbini will continue until we break up for Easter in 2019.


Family reading sessions will be held every Friday from Friday 1st October. We welcome any adults into Nursery from 11:15am for morning Nursery and 3:00pm for afternoon Nursery.
