Making kites!

Miss Foord had asked all the children in school to create kites to decorate our school. The children in Nursery had the most exciting time decorating their kite with their friend. There were so many different things to choose from! Now the kites are finished they look fantastic and the children are very proud of their creations.

Baa Baa Black Sheep have you any wool?

In our Literacy sessions we have been singing lots of different Nursery Rhymes. Today we have been singing ‘Baa Baa Black Sheep’ and thinking about the order of the Rhyme and what happens next. We used masks and picture cues in the outdoor area to help us to sing the rhyme and answer questions about what happened next.


We love to mark make!

At Nursery we have been having lots of fun outside mark making with the chunky chalks. We are getting better at talking about the marks that we have made and thinking about how we can make our marks better.

We love to read!

Date: 14th Mar 2018 @ 3:53pm

At Nursery we love to read. This week we have started going to the library. It is very exciting and we have to tiptoe through school to get there! When we are in the library we make sure we use our quiet voices. Shhh!!  We can choose from lots of different books to read in the library and make sure we put them back carefully. We are learning how to handle the books carefully, hold it the correct way up and turn the pages. We are beginning to look at the pictures to help us to tell the story.
