This week the childrein in Nursery have been exploring colour as part of their topic on Elmer the Elephant. Yesterday they used powder paints to see what colours they could make. There has been some fantastic learning taking place this week, and some very excited children when they saw their colours changing.

For this year’s Father’s Day party, the children and their daddies had a special challenge: to make a pirate ship that would float on water 🌊
The children had so much fun helping make these with their grown ups and had even more fun sailing them ⛵️
Afterwards, the children enjoyed some tasty biscuits and cakes, and presented their daddies with their presents and cards.
Thank you to those who were able to join us ☺️
Happy Father’s Day
As part of their transport topic, Nursery had a surprise visit from a very special red ‘naughty bus’. The children loved reading the story this morning before seeing the bus pull onto nursery car park!
🇳🇬 Nigeria 🇳🇬
Yesterday, the children had lots of fun exploring Nigerian culture. They enjoyed making African drums and shakers and making music with them. They also made some craft paper necklaces, as well as recreating some Nigerian jewellery using pasta.
At snack time, the children enjoyed tasting some of the fruits from the story ‘Handa’s Surprise’, such as passion fruit, pineapple, avocado and oranges 🍊
This week the children also tried some home made Nigerian masa, which was kindly brought in by Janelle’s mum 😊
Today, the children have been exceptionally busy learning all about Ireland, Northern Ireland 🇮🇪 and Scotland 🏴
We began by learning all about Ireland and the story of the Giant’s Cauaseway. The children also created their own shamrock prints ☘️ using peppers 🫑 and leprechaun hats using lollipop sticks 😊
The children also had a go at making their own Irish soda bread 🍞 😋
This afternoon, the children focused on Scotland 🏴 and enjoyed making some wonderful tartan patterns, as well as enjoying some yummy Scottish shortbread which was very kindly brought in by Logan’s mummy
This week, Nursery are celebrating cultural diversity 👩🏼🤝👨🏿
Today, the children sampled some Chinese foods as well as learning some Mandarin 👏
They’ve also been busy recreating their own willow patterns onto paper plates.
Nursery were also lucky enough to have a visit from Hayes’ mummy, who came to talk to us about Hayes’ Chinese and Mauritian heritage 🥰 🇲🇺 🇨🇳
This afternoon, Nursery enjoyed a short walk over to Forest School to release their butterflies.
The children have loved watching their tiny caterpillars transform over the last few weeks 🐛 🦋
Well done, Nursery 👏
As part of their transport topic, Nursery enjoyed a walk up to Daisy Hill train station to see the trains 🚆
They walked sensibly all the way to the station and behaved beautifully on the platform.
We had lots of discussion about road and railway safety and well as enjoying a biscuit (or two) 🍪 🚊
A massive thank you to our lovely parent helpers who were able to accompany us this morning 👏
A very well deserved Head Teacher’s Award for super use of phonics in writing 👏⭐️
“If I were King or Queen…”
🇬🇧 Nursery Coronation Party 2023 🇬🇧
The children had so much fun at their coronation party this morning. Thank you to those who were able to join us in celebrating 🎉
🐛 Mini beasts 🕷️
This week, the children have been learning all about mini beasts.
They began the week by reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar, before some real caterpillars arrived at nursery.
The children have been focusing on the life cycle of their caterpillars, and they can't wait to watch them change into butterflies in a few weeks 🙏😊
They have been busy learning lots of new vocabulary, such as ‘chrysalis’, as well as exploring the habitats of some common mini beasts 🪱 🐜 🐞
Nursery thoroughly enjoyed their cricket coaching session this morning 👏 🏏
This week, our focus is ‘growing’ 🌱
The children have been busy learning all about what makes a plant grow - in particular, a beanstalk a little like the one in the Jack and the Beanstalk story.
Together the children came up with some ideas: water and soil. We also talked about the importance of the sun in helping living things to grow.
The children are conducting their own science experiment to see which conditions are best for a plant to grow. They planted 4 beans around the classroom..
2 in the window (with and without water)
1 in the dark with water
1 in the freezer.
They already predict that the one with water and sunlight will grow first. We’ll see!
The children have also each planted a cucumber seed and they already can’t wait to eat them when they’re ready for harvest in the summer!
Well done 👏

The children wanted to know how the mouse was able to trick the Gruffalo’s child into thinking he was much bigger than he was, so we conducted our own little test. The children saw what happened when an object blocked the light and made a shadow. They realised they could make the shadow bigger by moving the object.
Well done! 👏
Enjoying some owl ice cream for today’s snack😊 (minus the 🦉)
There’s no such thing as a Gruffalo!
The children had so much fun touching and smelling what was inside the boxes, trying to work out whose favourite foods they were!
The Gruffalo’s, of course!
Here they are investigating some owl ice cream, roasted fox, scrambled snake and mouse sandwich. Yuk!
A very well deserved Head Teacher’s Award for amazing writing about The Gruffalo ✍️⭐️
Well done 👏
Busy bear hunting 🐻
Our nursery children were so excited to go on their hunt to find the black bear! They were even more excited to find, not only the bear, but that he had brought them some delicious treats!
To get out of the rain, the children decided to take the black bear back over to nursery, where they could enjoy some yummy cakes and biscuits together 🍪
Don’t get lost again, Black Bear! 🐻🖤
Last week, the children couldn’t believe their eyes when a real black bear came to visit their bear cave, before disappearing somewhere in the nursery grounds!
The children eagerly wrote their own letters to the bear asking where he had disappeared to ✉️
On Monday, the children were lucky enough to receive a reply from the black bear, who had wandered too far and got lost! Only, he didn’t know where he was!
He sent the children some pictures of himself standing in places the children recognised. “It’s big school!!” “That’s the zebra crossing we cross at!” “He’s at big school!!”
The children loved using maps of the school and surrounding area to look for any trees the bear could be hiding in. They also had a go at making their own maps to take with them on their bear hunt tomorrow morning! 🐻
Well done, Nursery
