We have lots of things going on in Nursery this Christmas. We all made some beautiful crafts for the Christmas fair, we have had a special elf visit nursery, we have made calendars using the shapes we have been learning about, we all performed to our parents in the Christmas show and we even visited Santa at Souter Lighthouse.

You can see all the photos from our visit to Souter Lighthouse here.


Since starting Nursery the children have been learning lots of Nursery Rhymes to complete a Rhyme Challenge and this week we had great fun celebrating ‘World Nursery Rhyme Week’ as a culmination to our efforts. On Monday we learnt the rhyme Bobby Shafto Went to Sea using body percussion to accompany our singing. We brought in boats we made at home over the weekend. Some of us made boats at Nursery and then we all sailed them outside in the water tray. On Tuesday we learnt Lavenders Blue Dilly Dilly and used shakers to accompany our singing. We then looked at real lavender plants and made lavender bags to take home. On Wednesday we sang Hickory Dickory Dock, which we already knew and we made mouse masks to use in our play. Thursday was Wind a Bobbin, which again we already knew, but we practised winding our own bobbins using wool. On Friday we sang Old King Cole and had a ‘Celebration Event’ which we invited friends and relatives to watch. We performed on our outdoor stage in the Nursery garden and were FANTASTIC! We all got a certificate and a book for our efforts.

This week in Nursery we talked about Remembrance Sunday and how it was to remember soldiers who had been hurt or killed trying to keep us safe. We all helped to colour a huge poppy using crayons then paint to fill the gaps. We practised staying silent for a whole minute as we watched the sand timer.

On Halloween we all came to nursery dressed up.

We had lots of fun with Halloween activities in nursery.
