The children who have returned to nursery this term have really enjoyed seeing their friends again and having the opportunity to play together. They have also been excellent role models for our new children which has been lovely to see.
Here are some photos of the older children engaged in learning together over the course of the week. We will include photos of our new starters once we have all the permissions.
This week we are excited to welcome back some children who were with us in nursery last term as well as lots of new starters. We are really looking forward to meeting you all and we are sure you will all make lots of new friends.
This week we will be spending lots of quality time with the children; , settling them in, helping them make new friends and learning our routines.
Look out for some photos of us learning together coming soon!
This week we are basing our learning around the theme of trains and our book of the week is Magic Train Ride.

We are learning to join in with the repetitive phrases within this book by re-reading it lots during the week. See if your child can join in with the words and maybe they could show you the Makaton sign for train.
We love baking day in nursery and today we decided to follow a recipe to make some biscuits. The children have got much more confident with baking now and are really developing their skills with mixing and rolling. Firstly a group of children helped Miss Powell to make the biscuit dough by weighing and mixing all the ingredients. Then everyone carefully rolled out their own dough and cut out their biscuit. We have made vehicle shaped biscuits to link with our theme of the week.
One of our focused activities this week has been making vehicles in the creative area. We have chosen a vehicle and some materials and used our creative skills to make it. The children have learnt how to attach materials in different ways and some children have found out how to make wheels that actually turn using split pins!
Today the children have really enjoyed working together to build different vehicles in the outdoor area. They used crates, tyres, boxes and big bricks to build and then they wrote their own tickets so they could role play travelling to different places.
Look at our fantastic teamwork!
Welcome back to the final term in nursery- this year has flown!!
Our new theme for learning is "Travelling Out and About" and we will be learning about all different kinds of vehicles through this theme.
Our book of the week is "We all go travelling by" which has a lovely repetitive and rhyming structure. We are reading and re-reading the book as well as learning a song version so the children can recite it themselves. We have been learning the Makaton signs for all the different vehicles in the book.
Here is a link to the book as a song if you would like to share it with your child at home:

Have fun singing and see if your child can join in with the repetitive phrases and the rhyming words.
Today we made our own healthy snack- fruit kebabs! We had to carefully thread different fruits onto a skewer which was a great activity for developing our fine motor skills. Once they were ready, we enjoyed eating them for our snack. Some children thought all the fruits were delicious and everyone tried the different types.
Today we were so excited to notice that one of our butterflies had emerged from the chrysalis!! We watched it dry it's wings and begin to fly around in the net. As the session progressed we were lucky enough to see some of the others emerge! By the end of the afternoon, we had five butterflies in our net. We will observe them over the next couple of days and then release them so they can fly away outside.
Today we have been mathematicians! We went around nursery with a clipboard asking our friends and the grown-ups the question "What is your favourite fruit?" We learnt to record a tally mark next to the fruit they chose and then we counted how many children liked each type of fruit and wrote the number. Super Maths, Shooting Stars!
