We started the week off by baking biscuits in nursery. Lots of the children enjoyed joining in with mixing, pouring and rolling before baking their outset bear biscuits in the oven.
This week was also very exciting for many of the children as we went on our first nursery trip! We got on the coach and travelled to Harlow Carr in Harrogate. The children thought the coach journey was fantastic and could spot lots of animals out of the windows.
Once we arrived we were met by Louise who led our activity during the morning. We went out into the gardens accompanied by Dylan the Dragon who needed our help. We went into the woods and had to rebuild fairy and elf houses as they had been knocked down by a clumsy dragon. The children loved this activity and took care with their house building.
We ate our lunch in the lodge before heading out to find the treehouse. This was very exciting for the children and they loved climbing and exploring this area before find the slide!
We would like to thank all of the parents who volunteered to help and a huge well done to all of the children this week who have been so grown up and made the nursery team feel very proud. We have had a lovely week and I’m sure that the children are suitably tired but happy!
What a fabulous week we have had in Nursery. The children have come back after the holidays and settled back into the routines brilliantly.
This week in our classroom we had noticed a new Diwali house. Through the course of the week the children enjoyed using this area to cook food and look more closely at special lamps, jugs and silverware.
The children have been making Diwa lamps as well as making colourful patterns with small gems.
To end the week, we enjoyed celebrating with some of our parents and even tried on some Diwali celebration outfits that Mrs Ajith kindly brought in for us to try.
This week in Nursery we have been so interested in writing. We have found a new love for using the whiteboards and pens to mark make.
The children have been asking to write their names as well as other things such as numbers. We have been learning rhymes to help us with our number formation and know where to find them in the classroom.
In the last week of half term we will be focusing on the Little Red Hen story and will be baking some bread!
With only a few children left to start, Nursery is bustling with excitement. The children are beginning to learn our daily routines and are all being so friendly and helpful towards new children. We are so pleased with how well everyone is coming in to Nursery and how much fun everyone is having.
We have been collecting photos of the children as babies for a display in the classroom. Don’t forget to send one in if you haven’t already!
We have still welcoming in new children and getting used to our new routines. All of the children with us so far have settled brilliantly and are being so grown up saying hello to all of our new starters.
We even started doing some drama in Nursery and had the children acting out a story.
The children are coming back to Nursery as excited as can be! We have been very busy looking around our new classroom and settling in the new children.
We are so excited to have all of the new children in and we are all getting to know each other. We have been saying ‘hello’ to each other in lots of different languages and are celebrating the different languages spoken at home.
