Welcome to our Nursery page.
Please visit regularly to find up-to-date information from our year group. There are two classes in Nursery;
Butterflies (ages 2-3) and
Dragonflies (ages 3-4).
It has been a very busy Autumn term in Butterflies class. The children have taken part in caring for our pet rabbits, exploring shapes and making special presents for people they love. The children have also spent some quality time in the Butterflies outdoor book area looking at books and as the festive season approaches, some children have helped with decorating the Christmas tree.
This half term children have been listening to and joining in with the story ‘The Rainbow Fish’. Children have learnt lots of new vocabulary and are beginning to show confidence in using these words when retelling the story independently. For example “The wise octopus emerged from the darkness.”
Linked to The Rainbow Fish and our topic ‘Can we be friends’ we’ve also enjoyed lots of group activities, especially ‘Teddy Talking Time’ where we have taken turns to talk about family and friends.
More recently children have shown an interest in playing with musical instruments. We developed this interest by transforming the climbing frame into a bandstand. Children helped to create 3D instruments and enjoyed pretending to be a marching band outdoors.
Other learning this term has involved making marks which represent number, using, sorting, making and naming 2D shapes and lots of creative activities which involve using a range of different tools and materials.
