Our New Classrooms

Our New Classrooms

It’s that time of year again and lots of the children in nursery are getting ready for going into reception!

We are very excited about moving into reception so we have been having lots of visits! We have been going everyday to spend time in our new classrooms and thinking about what will be the same and what will be different.


This year we are doing things a little bit differently and not splitting into two classes. Instead we will spend time in both classrooms and mix with lots of children we have not spent time with before. This is because most children either do beginning or end of the week sessions so they have not met lots of their new friends or any of the children coming from other nurseries. The children will have chance to get to know both reception teachers – Miss Parker and Miss Deighton. After a few weeks of settling in in September the children will then be put into two classes. Don’t forget to come to Parents Meeting on Monday to find out more information.

Why not look at it together at home? The children are all really excited to be moving into reception. If you have any questions or worries please come and talk to us!


Are you taller than a…?


In nursery we have been looking at how tall we are. We have been using the height chart to see what animal we are as tall as.


We can see the animals that we are taller than.


We can see the animals that we are shorter than.


We can measure our friends and see who is the tallest.


We talked about what might help us grow.

Gummy Bear Experiments


We put gummy bears in different liquids to see what happened!

Some gummy bears went in water.DSCF7023DSCF7027

Some went in soda.DSCF7025

Some went in vinegar.


We looked at how they changed, felt them, then tasted them. Some children even wanted to taste the vinegar gummy bears (yuck)!


Can you see what happened to the gummy bears?
