Newdale Nursery Telford


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

In ladybugs this week we’ve been doing lots of exploring through play🙂

The theme was to discuss the weather, encouraging the children to ask the question “what’s the weather like today?” The children iced biscuits choosing the colours yellow for the sun or blue for the rain. They also had opportunities to match up correct clothing the correct weather picture.

We’ve done lots of messy play. The children have got creative in the crazy soap and we’re talking all about textures.
The children have done lots of stocking and gluing and practiced their scissor skills “open shut them”
We have enjoyed water play pouring and emptying.
The children have enjoyed all the activities showing a ‘positive can do’ attitude with their learning.

Have a lovely weekend everyone
Love the ladybugs team 🐞

Ladybugs have had such a great pirate themed week ⛴️ 💀
“Ahoy there Matey” “climb the rigging” “scrub the decks”

We have been pretending to sail the salty sea in ladybugs this week we have down the following activities.
* decorated a pirate ship using tissue paper
* Painted the sea on the easel using blue and white paints to make waves
* Dressed up
*Created our own pirate hats
*Read the story 10 little pirates
*Pirate dancing

The children really enjoyed seeing the police car and fire truck today they liked to listen to the siren and watch the flashing lights.
The children have really enjoyed all the sensory opportunities that we have provided e.g. water beads, water play, coloured sand, paints and rollers.
The children are getting good talkers and we’re encouraging them to use their words and repeat simple sentences e.g. Hello Fred or sailing across the sea.
The children have loved using the new bouncy hoppers in the garden it was tricky to gain balance and stay on 🙂
We loved jelly play with Mellisa, Louise and Summer “sticky jelly” said one of the children as they explored the textures.

Thanks for a fab week children 😊
Love the ladybugs team🐞

As we’ve been treated by this lovely weather this week I just wanted to add a quick reminder of how quickly your little ones can get heat exhaustion and heatstroke. The signs and symptoms for quick checks are on the photos attached. Let’s be prepared for the summer days together ☀️

This week in ladybugs we have been busy bees 🐝
The children started off by practising their races ready for sports day.
They did so well to follow instructions and get involved in physical education.
Fathers/granddads day was a huge success!
The children showed them where we play and how we learn in nursery, thank you all for coming 😊
The children have been creating some lovely treasures e.g. cards and pictures to come home so we hope you like these 😌

The children have been trying to stay cool so we’ve had numerous water play activities including the paddling pool where the children tried to catch the fish 🐟 we had a floating and sinking activity which produced new science aspects that allowed them to observe what happens when we add resources to water.
We have discussed feelings with our nursery puppets ‘Fred and Bob’ they were doing work to show the class how to be kind, gentle and share. Using the words “Sharing is caring and we are gentle”

The book of the week was ‘My daddies’ and ‘My grandpa is amazing’ our song was daddy finger the children really enjoyed joining in with the stories and songs this week. 🎵

We have been exploring the outdoor and indoor environment really well and the children have learnt some new impressive words, e.g ‘amazing’ and ‘shocked’

The children enjoyed a visit to basecamp where they found shady parts to relax and take in the natural environment 🌳

The staff in ladybugs would like to say well done to all the children this week for being so good and caring to each other, we’re very proud of you all especially with the hot conditions.

Love the ladybug team 🐞

Thank you to all of those lovely Daddy’s and grandads that were able to attend the Stay and plays sessions. What a turn out! We couldn’t have asked for better, the dads were on their best behaviour’s and got stuck right in with the messy activities. We all hope you had fun because we really enjoyed seeing you and I know the children loved having you in.
Hopefully we will be doing more events like these in the future.
Once again thank you from all of us here at the Mighty Oaks team.


Week beginning Monday 19th will be healthy lifestyle week. During this time your child will take part in a variety of planned lessons and activities helping them to learn and understand the importance of eating a balanced healthy diet and the effects exercise has on their bodies.

We will be taking part in a daily steady run/ paced walk around the school field.
Weather permitting and rest assured this will not be done in the heat.
We are asking if you could kindly put your child in sensible footwear to do so and have a sun hat with them.

As we are being treated with such wonderful weather this week, can I remind you all to send in sun hats, labelled with their names would be great to help us.
You can send in sunscreen especially if your child does full sessions. If you have popped it in their bags let us know and we’ll place it in a safe area in nursery.

If you do not give your permission for us to apply the sunscreen to your child please let us know and we can arrange a time for you to come in and do so yourselves.
Thank you for understanding, let’s have a great day ☀️

This week in ladybugs we’ve had so much fun in the sun ☀️ and have been busy doing lots of exciting activities.
The children started off the week by practising their running races and learnt how to take turns with their friends.
The children have been learning lots of mathematical skills, the number rhyme of the week was ‘5 speckled frogs’ 🐸 where they learnt how to take one away. A variety of shapes have been available for the children to learn how many sides each one has, and the differences between each one.
We have been busy exploring lots of different coloured paints and media and ways we can paint pictures and develop our hand eye coordination. 🎨
The children have practised their spreading using plastic knifes at snack time choosing what topping they would like to spread.
During our physical education time the children have been to mighty oaks garden to use their large space full of interesting new resources and a huge climbing frame.
In basecamp the children really enjoyed getting on the pretend bus singing the song ‘wheels on the bus’ they liked to go on the rope swing and climb the massive steps.
They were really worn out and needed a rest when we got back from basecamp so we did our yoga🧘‍♀️ to relax!
We celebrated our friends birthday and she kindly gave cupcakes out. Thank you 😊

Thanks for all the lovely images sent in when asked to send in selfies of your child with their dad. If you haven’t sent one in already please send latest Monday so we can prepare a special surprise for Father’s Day! 🚗

Can we just remind you all to send suncream and hats in for your child please, with the increasing hot weather 🥵
That way we can keep your child protected and safe during the hotter days!

Ladybugs this week...🐞

Tuesday we did cooking, we made our own flapjacks. The children enjoyed measuring the ingredients, pouring them, mixing them and talking about the safety of the oven because it’s hot.

We have carried on with our story from last week Rainbow Fish, we’ve made our own sun catcher rainbow fish. We’ve had them hanging upon ladybugs and loved watching the different colours shine in the sun ☀️🐠

Talking about the story rainbow fish we begun exploring other sea creatures, we enjoyed making our own octopus’ to play with and used the whiteboard as a ocean background 🐙🐟

With the weather being so nice we made ice numbers to explore. They had the right amount of Pom poms inside the ice, the children were asked how we can get them out of the ice, they suggested throwing the ice, using the playdough tools, and then they noticed they could melt them using their hands. After lots of trying and determination we got all of the Pom poms out ❄️

Today we had a little party to celebrate Becky’s last day before she leaves to have her baby, Good Luck and see you soon with baby 👶🥰

Have a lovely half term,
The Ladybugs Team 🐞


Lost property is accumulating again. With the ever growing numbers in Mighty Oaks we’re finding it hard to identify belongings without any names on them. We do ask the children if they can remember to put them in their bags or on their pegs, but they’re only young so sometimes forget what their missing items look like. Please see that I have placed them on the fence by the gate.

We have a missing Spider-Man bucket hat and a black Minecraft jumper. If you could have a look at home incase anyone has accidentally taken them, we’d really appreciate it.

Please may we also ask that your children keep their special toys at home. It’s very upsetting to them when they go missing.
Thank you


Goodbye for now

Becky Fenn, who is mostly stationed in ladybugs, as some of you may have guessed, is expecting a baby. Her last day in nursery will be Friday 26th May. I’m sure you’ll all join me in wishing her well and we can’t wait to meet her new bundle of joy. If your child is in her key group you will be informed of their new keyworker.

Exciting times!

This week in ladybugs...🐞

Our story of the week was Rainbow fish, we focused on being kind and how sharing is caring, the children really took to this saying and we loved seeing them being kind to their friends throuhgout the week 🥰

We kept checking in on our chicks to see how much they have grown 🐥

We went on a mini-beast hunt around our garden using the magnifying glasses, which the children loved. We found flies, worms, spiders and bees 🐝

In cooking this week we made our very own raisin sourdough bread, the children are getting so good at listening to instructions and helping us to follow the recipes. It was so delicious we couldn’t wait to bring it home this week so the children ate it for snack, yum yum! 🤤

Thank you all for the amazing support this week,
We hope you all have a great weekend and we can’t wait to have another busy week next week.

Ladybugs this week have...🐞

Had so much fun Tuesday in cooking making our own ham and cheese puffs. We all had a go at choosing our ingredients to go inside and thought they smelt yummy when they were cooking 👩‍🍳👨‍🍳

We have been eagerly awaiting for our new friends to hatch from their eggs. We were even lucky enough to watch one hatch from the egg whilst we were visiting. The children have been visiting every day to see their development and have been looking at what they eat, drink and how we look after them being gentle 🐥🐣

Our story of the week was monkey puzzle and our song was ‘Five Cheeky Monkeys’. We have done many different activities around the story including making our own monkey faces, colouring in pictures of the animals, and recalling the story using props 🐒

Finally this morning we had loads of fun exploring the outdoors in base camp. We climbed, explored the plants and flowers and had fun using the wheelbarrows to transport natural materials 🌱

Have a lovely weekend,
The Ladybugs Team 🐞

Might Oaks went to visit the eggs/chicks today in school. Some have hatched already so the children were taught how to hold them correctly and how to look after them. They were very inquisitive and asked lots of questions which was a pleasure to hear and answer. Don’t worry if your child missed out on this little visit because they are coming back into school on Monday, by then I should imagine that all the eggs would have hatched.

What a great way to start off the bank holiday weekend with celebrations for our King Charles.
