We have had a busy first two weeks back at nursery! As well as lots of familiar faces from last year we have also had lots of new friends starting nursery.
We have been busy getting to know our new children, having fun in PE, exploring our classroom and doing lots of playing! We’ve also had a mini-trip, baked a cake and searched for our missing snail!
When we got back to nursery Gary the Snail was missing! The children searched all around the school and talked to lots of teachers to see if anyone had seen Gary. Luckily he came back this week, he had been on his holidays at Oliver’s house.
Last Friday we went on a mini-trip to Asda. The children were very sensible walking up the hill and crossing the road safely. We looked at the building site as we went then followed our shopping list and collected everything we needed. The children even paid for the shopping.
This week we used our ingredients to bake a cake…
I wonder what we will get up to next week…
Today is our last day at nursery and we say goodbye to all of our older children who are going up to reception. We have had a busy week celebrating with end of term parties and lots of dancing, games, food and fun!
We have even had an ice-cream van at school this afternoon!
Thank you to all the children and parents for your wonderful end of term gifts. We especially enjoyed reading all of your lovely comments. We are all so proud of how everyone has come on this year and can’t wait to see how well they do in reception.

Last Wednesday in nursery we held our very own sports day. It was a beautiful sunny day and we had so much fun with our grown-ups.
First we got into teams and had different kinds of races while our parents cheered us on. Then our grown-ups joined us or more running aces, sack races, egg and spoon races, hurdles, jumping and throwing bean bags. Thank you to everyone that came to join us and a special thank you to the older children who came to help out too.

Thank you to everyone who came! We look forward to having more fun at our sports day next Wednesday!
Throughout the year we have different themed weeks all through school. The last two weeks have been Environment Week and Global Citizenship Week. In nursery we have been thinking about how we can help to look after our environment. Outside we learnt about water and used the guttering to transport water then made puddles and watched it evaporate. We thought about how important water was to us and why we needed it.
Then we thought about recycling. There were lots of things getting thrown away in nursery that we could have used for something else! After lunch we saved and washed out our containers and also looked for things that could be recycled throughout school and sorted materials.
After our muddy puddle walk lots of the children were interested in how they could help others. We decided to donate our old toys to the local charity shop and went on a mini-trip to take them up.

This week was our final week of Forest Schools. We had fun with the clay making creatures and homes and then searched for wiggly worms! We will miss our Forest School sessions but can’t wait to start exploring the secret garden ourselves! Check out our video below to see what we got up to this week…
This week was our second day of Forest School. We explored the outdoors with our senses looking at colours and textures of flowers. Then we made magic potions and fairy postcards!

This week was the first day of our forest school sessions. The children spent time in the secret garden, learning in the outdoors and exploring nature. We had lots of fun listening to stories, digging in the mud, making mud pies, finding flowers and even mud painting!

In Lula and Millie’s words last Wednesday was the ‘BEST DAY EVER!’
We started our day with our Muddy Puddles sponsored walk for Save the Children and searched for Peppa Pig and friends as we walked around school and the secret garden. Then we came back to nursery and had our bake sale with our grown-ups. We had been busy baking buns and biscuits at nursery and lots of parents brought things from home too. After that we all went ice skating! Our MUGA pitch turned into a temporary ice skating rink for the day and we all had lots of fun trying ice skating. Then we did it all again in the afternoon!
