We’ve had an amazing art day in ladybugs last week.
We have had some BIG scale painting, we used a long sheet of bright paper with lots of paint, rollers, brushes, and we even used our feet and hands. The children were dressed in our forest school all in one suits and was allowed to get as messy as they liked. They absolutely loved every moment! As you can probably see from the photo in the comments 😂
Art day in Mighty Oaks
Who knew we had so many mini artist in nursery! Today has been a fun filled creative day. The children have used all different types of medias and materials. Some of the work is going towards our next theme returning back in September and other masterpieces are coming home to you soon.
Ice play
When the weather was hot last week ! ladybugs staff prepared some fun ice play resources. The children had to find different ways to get the animals out of the ice, they used their hands, tools, warm water, brushes and eventually managed to set all of the animals free 💦
Thank you to all those that kindly brought in cakes yesterday for our stall. We raised a whooping £106.50
It was a great turn out and nice to see so many people having a good time.
A special thank you to Ollie Leighton’s mum who must have been working tirelessly though the night, very much appreciated.
Thank you all
From Mrs Giordano and the team
Please remember to bring in your cake or cakes ready to sell on our stall tomorrow. Any money raised will be going towards supplies for nursery.
Thank you kindly

Outdoors they have took part in the 1k a day on the playground and practice ready for sports day, inside we have taken part in cosmic yoga and just dance games.

A round-up of Ladybugs week of events…🐞
And what a week it was, we managed to pack lots of exciting things into just four days this week 👍

We celebrated Earth day, by exploring Basecamp for the first time which as you can see the children loved (so did the adults 😂) as well as junk modelling using lots of objects kindly brought in by parents/carers. We took part in early Diwali celebrations and more Halloween fun 🌳🎊🎃

We also had our grandparents tea party, where some of our grandparents joined us in some activities then tea and cake. Yum! 🍰 This was a amazing experience so thank you to all involved.

Once again thank you all for a great first half term, have a lovely half term break and we will see you back on the 31st of October ready to celebrate in Halloween style 🎃🦇👻

With our children in nursery today we’ve talked about recycling and how important it is to help our planet!
These are the minds that we need to teach how important it really is to help the world they live in today.
For todays activities children have been using their recycling from home to model make their ideas. From rockets to cars to birds and an octopus their little fingers got stuck into creating, literally!
With the reminder of ' I love my world ' old paper plates were used for sponge painting ​on to represent Earth.

In the words of Sir David " The future of humanity and indeed all life on Earth depends on us "

The Harvest GATEway Project

The Harvest GATEway Project This year for Harvest, we are collecting as usual, but in the spirit of supporting our immediate community, we have decided that we want this to be even closer to home and support our own school community in these times of ever-increasing cost of living for everyone.


Next week the Mighty oaks children are focussing on the story “Little red riding hood”. In the story the little girl visits her grandmother. Linked to this, we are going to be talking about grandparents and would love to see your child’s grandparents. Please could you send in a photograph, either a paper one or on evidence me, of the grandparents in your child’s life. We will use these photo’s as a prompt for your child to share stories and memories about their nan’s and grandad’s.

In addition, please share “Little red riding hood” at home with your child to help familiarise them with the story. You may have the story at home, be able to get it from the library or watch on youtube. Please talk about the characters, settings and the order of the story to support your child’s vocabulary.

Thanks for your support

A big Hello to all our new Ladybugs!
In ladybugs we have been a little quiet on here so far as we have been getting to know and supporting the children settling in. From the photos below you will see they have settled in really well and have been busy doing lots of lovely activities.

Starting this week we will be beginning to introduce more of our set routine with the children. This will include cooking on a Wednesday PM, Forest school on a Thursday Am and time in the school hall doing P.E on a Friday AM. You will only need to bring in something for forest school, such as suitable coat and wellies, we have all in one suits to go over there warm clothes to keep the children clean.

Once we are all settled in to the routine we will post our set daily routine on here for parents to see.

Please can we also remind you that the weather is a little unsettled now and everyday we play outside so can all children ensure they bring in at least a coat suitable for outside play.

Thank you,

The Ladybugs Team 🐞

Good evening all
I’ve been having a look through the evidence me app and can see that some of you have been successful in sending observations on the parent submissions, this is fantastic thank you 🙏🏼
However I can also see that a few are blank photos and no notes attached, if your having problems or unsure can you let me know and I’ll be happy to help.
I’ve managed to catch a few of you today to help set up but if it’s still not working please say. We need to get you all up and running so you can see the wonderful work your children have been doing.
Thank you for your patience on this, we will get there.

Mighty oaks children are really starting to settle now and find their way around the nursery, of course some are feeling a little more confident than others but it’s still early days for them and this is natural.
We’re already seeing their little characters starting to shine though and we love it !

Here’s just a snap shot of the weeks so far. Our over aching theme/ topic is ' The land of make believe' throughout this theme we will be looking at fairy tales to superhero’s and deep diving into nursery rhymes and books. I for one love this topic as it allows the children to explore their creative side and already we’ve had some tall tales and fantastic ideas.

I’m so pleased to see that most of you have accepted the evidence me app. Within this app you can see your child’s profile and any next steps set by their teachers to help towards their learning journey once they’ve parent shared an observation to you.
You too can send photos in the app along side a note to say what your child was doing and said. This we then can use to add any objectives to.
If anyone is unsure about this please ask us.
Thank you again from Mrs Giordano and the team

We’re so proud we were your teachers, how we watched you learn and grow. We worked hard and had such fun but how fast did that year go!
We’ve shared special time together but now it’s time to part.
Just know you will always have a special place in our hearts.

So it’s time we say farewell to our leavers today who are moving on to another chapter in their life’s. It’s been our pleasure to teach your young ones and watch their little personalities and minds grow.
Good luck to all from Mrs Giordano and the team.

Mighty Oaks have been keeping cool in the sun by staying safe in the shade. We have been exploring the forest school area and playing with the water trays. We’ve spoken about ways to keep safe and we’re pleased to hear them suggest the slip, slap, slop method. ​
please remember your child’s water bottle and sun hat.


On Wednesday 20th July, we would like to invite parents/carers into nursery for a drink and biscuits to mark the end of term and give you opportunity for you to play with your child in nursery and share their favourite activities with you.

Timings: 10.30am -11.15am for the morning session and 2.15pm -3.00pm for the afternoon session. If your child attends all day you are welcome to attend either of the visit times. Children who don’t normally attend on a Wednesday are welcome to join us with their parents/carers.

Please use the normal nursery entrances and not the reception entrance. Sorry, no mobile phones will be allowed in the nursery.

Thank you
