This week we have been reading the lovely book The Lion Inside and would like to invite Stay and Play to make their own paper plate version of the lion. The session will include a reading of the story, the lion activity, a play and a healthy fruit snack for £2 per child. We look forward to welcoming you at 9.30 until 10.30 on Friday 18th October.
This week we have been reading all about The Colour Monster. The Colour Monster has got all his emotions mixed up and we have helped him to identify them and sort them out. We have written letters and labels, made cakes with different colours in them; they were delicious. We have honed our fine motor skills with tweezers and pom-poms, and learned all about shapes as well. We have had a lovely week and our work has linked in well with World Mental Health Day.
This week we have been celebrating all things autumnal. We have read the book Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert, made our own leaf puppets, cooked playdough to produce conker snails, written lists of the different trees around the school and identified them all by their leaves, counted using conkers and raced them. What a fabulous week we have had.
Due to the adverse weather predicted for tomorrow we have made the decision that Stay and Play will not be in Forest School, however we have made a conker run in class to celebrate our story Leaf Man and would love to show you all how it works. 9.30-10.30 Friday morning. £2 per child.
Did you know that today is National Talk Like A Pirate Day?
To celebrate this occasion we have transformed our outside area in to a pirate themed paradise. In Stay and Play this week (tomorrow) you will be asked to walk the plank, set sail on the ocean blue, sing sea shanties and dig for buried treasure. All this, plus a story and a snack for £2! Friday morning 9.30-10.30 Arrrrr 'me hearties!
We are going dotty in Nursery with our focus book ‘The Dot’ by Peter Reynolds this week!
Parents and tots welcome from 9.30-10.30 for a dotty activity, a story, a play and a snack. £2
This week’s Stay and Play for tots coincides with our school sports day. To celebrate this we will be having some fun races in the morning. On your marks, get set, go!!!
Friday 5th July 9:30-10:30am
This week in Nursery we have continued our work on Superworm and our class wormery.
Our favourite activity this week was making ‘wormery’ cakes! The children wrote shopping lists and organised the instructions. We learned so much about capacity, weighing and measuring using different sized jars to make the cakes in. They were delicious.
We also improved our use of one-handed tools and how we measure time by counting how many pipe cleaner worms we could pick up with tweezers in 2 minutes using a sand timer! Another fun week✨
This week in Nursery we have been exploring the wonderful world of worms thanks to our focus book Superworm. We have observed and asked questions about real life worms and loved watching them move. We then used adjectives to describe Superworm in our writing. Our favourite bit was making a wormery! This enabled us to explore what food to feed and not feed a worm and how it’s diet differs from our own. This instigated a science investigation to see what will happen if we place jelly worms in water. Some of us predicted it will make jelly, some predicted more worms may grow or the worms will simply get wet. We have also wriggled like a worm in yoga, made edible soil in our baking session and learned to preform a worm charming dance. What a wonderful week!
Come and join us for Stay and Play tomorrow morning to listen to our fabulous book ‘Superworm’ and take part in a messy play activity around the book. 9:30-10:30am with a snack.
To celebrate the 10th birthday of Dough Disco we are hosting a special celebration event at Stay and Play for mums and tots tomorrow!
With regular disco dough sessions, we have seen the positive impact this has had on children’s fine motor skills, which in turn has helped to develop children’s writing skills in Nursery.
Come and join us at 9:30am for a Dough Disco demonstration and session to share with your child, where you can continue the benefits at home. We look forward to seeing you!
Pollination is a very important part of the life cycle of plants. Insects, birds, bats and the wind take pollen between flowering plants, which means the plants can make seeds and reproduce. We wanted our Nursery children to understand this important concept in a way they would find meaningful. So, making our own bees and using wotsits, we were able to demonstrate pollination in a way our children could understand. “The pollen has stuck to my fingers!” I think they now understand the important jobs our bees do!

Buzzing about bees this week! We are really enjoying our focus book ‘The Bee Book’ and learning our related song ‘Let It Be’ by The Beatles. We have already learned about bees, their lifecycle, their jobs and what they are so important to our daily life. We have learned how to safely collect honey from beehives and have made this honey into honey cakes!
We have also used bees to count with and planted several wildflower gardens around the school to help the bees collect the important nectar.
We have used shapes to make our own bees and looked at hexagons and why they are great for honey cells.

This week Nursery children have listened and responded to the classic Beatles song ‘Yellow Submarine’. The children were really engaged with the song and used it to perform their own version on the stage using our instruments and writing the lyrics using their phonic knowledge. The children found where The Beatles came from and explored Liverpool, making Liverpool tarts as a tribute! We finished off by making our very own submarines for role-play and for number play. A super week!

Nursery have spent the day celebrating Shrove Tuesday. In phonics, children focused on ‘e for egg’, cracking the phonic eggs and flipping pancakes to read letters and words. The children enjoyed carefully mixing batter to make pancakes, before sitting together to eat pancakes at snack time. We even enjoyed a number pancake race! What an egg-citing day! 🍳🥚

Today the Nursery spent the day at Chester Zoo, and although the weather was wet, it did not dampen our spirits!
We had a fabulous day visiting the penguins we had sponsored and loved seeing our name on the sponsorship plaque. The penguins seemed very excited to see us and spent ages diving and swimming in front of us.
We then sat under cover to enjoy the penguin cookies we baked on Tasty Tuesday for the occasion, we even used a penguin cutter to make them even more special.
After that we explored more of the zoo and spotted lots of animals inside and outside before stopping for lunch and finally returning home with a souvenir pencil and map.
Thank you Chester Zoo

This week Nursery children are enjoying the book ‘Lost & Found’ by Oliver Jeffers. The story is about a little boy who one day finds a penguin on his doorstep. The boy decides the penguin must be lost and tries to return him and they set out in his row boat on a journey to the South Pole. Our role-play area includes all the things we need for our journey!
Today, we wrote postcards home from our boat in our role play area.

As the Nursery children have enjoyed learning about penguins so much, they have decided to adopt!
All the Nursery parents have kindly contributed to this worthwhile cause and the children are so excited.
They will have a trip to Chester Zoo later this month to see their name on the adoption plaque. Chester Zoo have also sent a lovely large soft toy penguin, a fact file about the Humboldt penguins, stickers and a copy of the zoo magazine.🐧🐧❄️

This week we have been reading the book ‘Blue Penguin’ by Petr Horacek.
The children were so interested in penguins, so we have used this theme to continue our learning. This morning, during phonics, we went outside to draw ‘i’ for igloo in the snow like Inuits. We talked about where Penguins live and how this is different to Lower Heath. We sang the continents song and then located and labelled Antarctica on a map of the world. In our Maths session, the children rescued, and then counted the penguins that were frozen in the water table. This opened up a wonderful insightful discussion about water and how it changes to ice. This afternoon we created Penguin pictures, exploring different textures and we played in the snow in Forest School before warming up with a cup of cocoa. What a wonderful learning day enjoyed by all! ❄️🌟❄️

24/01/2019

Stay and Play tomorrow 9:30-10:45 for ‘mums and tots’ in the nursery. Come and join us for a penguin story, activity, snack and play!

The snow was such an exciting part of the children’s learning today! We used the snowy ground, as part of our literacy session, painting letters and words into the snow. Even Bob, our school Robin, came to join in!
In Forest school, we found a mysterious egg and discussed ideas as to how we could protect it and keep it warm. The children worked together to make a nest to protect it from the cold. We then warmed ourselves up with a cup of warm cocoa. ❄️☃️

21/01/2019

Yesterday was National Penguin Awareness Day. To celebrate this in the Nursery, we are spending the week learning all about penguins.
Today, we have taken part in a yoga session with Pedro the penguin, sung the continents song to find Antarctica, learned about the life-cycle of a penguin penguin and looked after penguin eggs by balancing them on our feet (all survived)!

This week in Nursery we welcomed everyone back with a learning focus on Stick Man! We listened to the book being read to us and then learnt the structure of the story and it’s characters through role-play, using lots of story language and exploring rhyming words. We went into forest school to find our very own stickmen and reenacted his trip down a river using our guttering and watering cans. This helped us learn lots about measure and science. We then used our own sticks in our phonics to focus on formation of the S sound. In the afternoon we followed instructions to bake and then decorate shortbread stick biscuits. In music, we used our sticks to make music and danced along to the Hey Duggee stick song and definitely earned our stick badge today. Tomorrow we are going to help Stick Man, and his family find a lovely new home in our Forest School area and continue our learning through the use of ‘family trees’.

This week the Nursery children have been reading the book ‘Funnybones’. Today, in their maths session, they baked their very own skeleton gingerbread. Measuring, sharing and counting out amounts followed by decorating them into skeletons. There’s not many of the children’s batch left, but Mrs Gallimore-Jonhson added numbers to her batch to use in an ‘ordering numbers’ game tomorrow...don’t they look great!

We had a very special visitor in Robin Class today.
Truffles the Pygmy hedgehog came to visit the children, so they could learn more about nocturnal animals and hibernation! They asked lots of questions and made lots of observations about how he lives and how he is cared for. This was a wonderful experience for the children and we didn’t want him to leave! 🦔🦔🍂🍁thank you Mrs Jenkins for bringing him in!
