  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Both the morning and afternoon children have settled really well and are loving exploring our Nursery setting, inside and out. 

    During our first half term we have harvested apples and pears from our trees but a sneaky squirrel visitor stole all our plums in the holidays! We dug up potatoes then chopped them into a pan. We all tried them boiled with butter on at snack time. They were delicious!

    We chopped all the vegetables

  • Why begin Teaching Reading through Games?

    It is vital that early reading experiences are happy and positive. The aim should be not just for children to learn to read, but to enjoy reading. Whilst games may appear to be an indirect approach, they do protect a child from a feeling of failure. By 'playing together' both parent and child are relaxed. Where a child could feel pressured in a formal teaching situation he/she will usually enjoy reading activities in a 'play' situation. This leaflet aims to give you simple ideas to try.
