Update – Our Muddy Puddle Walk raised an amazing £255.47 for Save the Children. Thank you for all your donations!
Last Wednesday was our Muddy Puddle Walk to raise money for Save the Children.
We invited our grown-ups and walked around our school and up to the secret garden and looked for pictures of Peppa Pig and friends on the way. Then we splashed and jumped in muddy puddles! When we got back to nursery we had a bake sale with our grown-ups. We had lots of fun and have already raised an amazing …

Today is National Poetry Day. Each year there is a different theme and this year the theme is change. After spending time in the secret garden this week and looking at the changing leaves and conkers we have been doing a lot of talking about Autumn.
Poem was a brand new word so we thought about what it meant. We decided a poem was a bit like a story and a bit like a song and it could tell us about how things look, feel, sound, taste or smell.
We talked about Autumn and all the changes we had noticed. The children described what they could see and hear and we put our ideas together to turn them into a poem.
Here is the poem from the afternoon and beginning of the week children…
Here is the poem from the morning and end of the week children…
We hope you like our poems. To learn more about National Poetry Day and explore poems at home you can visit the website below…

Well Monday was a very rainy day. It was so rainy in Sheffield that even some of the buses and trams stopped running! But in nursery we like to make the most of the wet weather. Our new outdoor suits and wellies mean we can go out whatever the weather and we did!
We had lots of fun painting outdoors. We tried different paints, chalks and crayons on paper then put them in the rain to see what would happen…
“It’s washing it away”
“It’s getting it clean”
“It’s making purple water down the yard”
“That one int, that one is still there”
We also made some sounds and music with the rain.
In a tuff spot we put different containers and let them fill up with water. We then hit them to listen to the different sounds they made…
Do you go out when it is rainy?
There’s lots of fun to be had in the rain. You can splash in puddles, sprinkle paint in puddles to make pictures, build shelters, put out pans and let them fill up with water and listen to the sounds, catch the rain etc… Just make sure you’ve got coats and wellies on!
This week we have been having lots of fun learning about Autumn and Spiders. Have a look what we have been up to…
We have been building our fine motor skills ready for writing by threading beads on sticks and pinching Autumn items to put on the sticky easel.
We have been doing lots of planting in our yard and learning about plants and how they grow.
We spun spider webs and learnt to follow instructions and work as a team.
We also made up lots of songs about Incy Wincy Spider…
How can you continue learning at home?
Carry on searching for Autumn items – conkers, leaves, acorns etc
Make an Autumn picture with what you have found
Make up your own Incy Wincy Song
Do some planting at home, in your garden or indoors
Today was a little bit rainy but it didn’t matter because we had our new outdoor clothes!
We have waterproof suits and wellies in different sizes so the children can go out whatever the weather.
Look how much fun we had playing in the rain…
Please remember to still send your child in clothes suitable for the changing weather. If you would prefer, you can also send your child to school in their own wellies. Thank you! 🙂
