Forest school - Winter Hunt.
On Monday we started off our week with an outdoor winter hunt, we walked down to the junior yard and looked all around for signs of winter. We spotted some trees that had no leaves on and some that were green. We looked for up to 4 objects that we would like to bring back to Nursery with us, we found leaves, twigs, bark, stones and pine cones.
We walked back to the classroom and started to stick our finds onto our sheets. We counted and wrote down the number of objects that we had stuck on to it. Mrs Pritchard displayed all of our lovely work onto the board in the corridor.

Welcome back, we would like to wish you all a very Happy New year. We hope you have all had a very Merry Christmas and a lovely holiday. May we take this opportunity to thank you all for your kind wishes, cards and lovely gifts, we very much appreciate it.
In Nursery this week we have been writing thank you letters to Santa to go into our 'Busy Books', we have been looking at toys and discussing what materials they are made of and sorting out all of our jigsaws.
On Monday we are going to go outside for our Forest schools session, so wrap up warm!

After a long and snowy weekend, we returned to school on Tuesday. Both Nursery classes went into the school hall and we spent the morning with the Reception classes practising our Nativity play. Mrs Hughes, Mrs Lloyd and Mrs Pritchard were very proud of everybody. All the children listened well, sang beautifully and did all the actions. Well done! We are looking forward to the performance in Church next Monday.
We started to make our Christmas cards with Mrs Pritchard this week, so far we have done a handprint, a thumb print and we have been for a walk in our Christmas jumpers to collect some sticks - What will be on the front of your card?
We really enjoyed wearing our Christmas jumpers, we hope you all have a lovely weekend and we look forward to seeing you in Church on Monday morning.
With kind regards, Nursery staff.

Our week started with a busy Forest school and P.E session, we had a chat about houses and then set off for a walk to look at different houses that we could see from our school playground. We noticed all sorts of exciting things - windows, doors, bricks, aerials, satellite dishes, two birds sitting on a chimney and even a window in the roof!
We continued onto the junior playground and said a quick hello to the chickens and then spent some tiime investigating the play equipment. We all took turns, climbing, balancing and swinging. We didn't really want to return to the Nursery classroom for snack time.
Each day this week we have been practising our Nativity songs and actions. We are listening well and learning all the words.
We hope you have a lovely weekend.
Week Beginning - 6/11/17
Welcome back! We hope that you all had a lovely half term holiday and are ready for the busy half term ahead.
We have been learning all about Remembrance Sunday in Nursery this week, we all listened to and watched a powerpoint about 'Remembering' and why we wear a poppy. The children all listened carefully and asked interesting questions.
With Mrs. Pritchard this week, we worked at the Writing table and made a poppy and discussed our work. In the number area with Mrs. Hughes we did lots of counting - we counted fireworks and looked for the relevant numbers.
Week Beginning 16/10/17.
We started our week with our Forest school session. In small groups we went out for a walk with Mrs. Lloyd and collected natural materials in a basket, next we came into the classroom and made an Autumn crown with Mrs. Pritchard and Mrs. Hughes. After we had finished our crowns we wore them for the rest of the session. We had lots of Queens, Kings, princes and princesses (and a spiderman or two)
In the classroom this week we have been thinking about fruit and vegetables for harvest and outdoors we have been busy preparing the garden ready for planting and creating our dinosaur world.

We had a very exciting week in Nursery - Tom and Jerry, our school guinea pigs returned to Nursery. They will be living with us for the rest of the year, everyone has been very kind and we will all be taking it in turns to help to look after them.
With Mrs Hughes, we have been playing in the role play area, making cups of tea and preparing dinner. Mrs. Pritchard has been working in the quiet room with her groups, looking at and reading story books. And finally Mrs. Lefley has been outside all week working with the children in the construction area, playing on the bikes and doing a number hunt. What a busy week!
Have a lovely weekend, from all in Nursery.

On Monday we had our first Forest school session, we started off by going for a walk down to the junior yard, looking for signs of Autumn on our way.
We collected leaves and twigs in our basket on our way down. We stopped for a chat with the chickens, they were very pleased to meet us!
We have used the twigs and leaves to make pictures with Mrs. Lloyd, we have lovely displays in our class and the infant corridor. We have made a mud creature, spiderman and a Minion amongst other creations.

This week in Nursery we have been learning all about Wales, we have looked at a map and found Wales on it, we have looked at and talked about things that are important in Wales. On Wednesday we read the story of St. David and today we have all dressed up in Welsh theamed clothing. We all looked wonderful and had a lovely day.
