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.
Have a look at our video below!
A few weeks ago we had a lovely time celebrating Father’s Day with our grown-ups. We invited everyone to come and play games together, on the park, ball games and on the Muga.
Check out our video below….
Thank you to everyone who came! We look forward to having more fun at our sports day next Wednesday!
One day Asaad asked if he could make a video. We set up a video diary and the children learnt how to record themselves as they sang songs and told stories.
Everyone loved the idea and decided we should make a ‘real movie’ together. The children had lots of different ideas for their movie.
In the end we decided on the story of The Three Little Pigs. Everybody had their own job. We made masks and costumes for the different characters, build sets inside and outside, told the story using storyboards to help us, acted out the story, used puppets to tell the story, made sound effects, directed our friends and recorded our movie. What a busy week!
Then we thought about who might like to see our movie. We decided our grown-ups would so we made tickets, posters and invitations.
Then Paige said we should make jam tarts and Oliver, Lula, Toochi and Roman thought popcorn and hot chocolate!
We baked our jam tarts and got everything ready for our movie mornings and lots of our grown-ups stayed!
We had a lovely time and the children were all very proud of their movie. Thank you to everyone who stayed.
The children have already been talking about a Christmas movie for the sequel so watch this space!
Today was our story telling workshop. We have been learning the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We learnt the words and actions to help us to remember them. Then we performed the story for our grown-ups.
After that we went back to our classroom and waited for our grown ups…
When our grown-ups arrived they helped us to order the pictures from the story. We thought about the days of the week and counted the fruit to match the day. We used our scissors carefully and stuck our pictures on in order…
Thank you to all the grown-ups who came. Don’t worry if you missed it, here are the words and story map, why not see if you can have a go at telling the story at home…
Every half term we learn a story with Makaton actions to help us remember the story. We learn to tell it from memory using the words and actions. We then perform the story for our grown-ups and make things to take home so we can keep telling the story at home. Last half term’s story was ‘We All Go Travelling By’.
Our grown ups came back to our classroom to help us create our story telling necklaces.
We had lots of fun and we still tell the story to our friends in nursery!
We look forward to seeing you at our next workshop 🙂
