Mark-Making Stay and Play
February 2024

Nursery parents and carers joined us for a short presentation focusing on the importance of developing ‘gross motor’ and ‘fine motor’ skills. 

 

We suggested activities to try at home to support this and looked at the progression of writing structure.

 

Our families joined in with ‘Dough Disco’, ‘Squiggle Whilst You Wiggle’ and a range of pre-writing activities in the Nursery.

Chinese New Year
February 2024

We celebrated Chinese New Year!

 

The children learnt to say hello in Chinese by saying “nihao”.

 

2024 is the year of the dragon.

 

We shared the story of The Great Race. In PE we moved like the different animals, then had our own animal races.

 

The children explored lots of Chinese artifacts and played with coloured rice. They created some red and gold lanterns and put a given number of golden coins in the lucky red money envelopes. Food tasting was enjoyed by all!

Exploring Winter in the Outdoors
January 2024

January has been very cold! The children have been practising doing their fastenings on their coats and wrapping up warmly. They enjoyed a winter walk around the school grounds to look for signs on winter. It was a cold and frosty day and the children noticed that the canal was frozen over! We created some ice blocks with artic animals to explore inside, the children enjoyed using hammers and tools to free the animals.

Christmas Adventures in Nursery
December 2023

Nursery parents and carers were welcomed to school to watch our Christmas show ‘Nursery Rhyme Nativity,’ after the show families came into class to take part in lots of Christmas craft activities such as making magic keys for Santa and Christmas decorations! It was great to see so many parents and carers attending! On Christmas party day we were very energetic playing party games and dancing, soft play was very popular!

Autumn Term Outcome
November 2023

Nursery parents and carers came into school to explore and experience a range of activities inside and outside linked to our favourite story - The Gingerbread Man. Our families enjoyed watching a photo montage of the children’s learning journey throughout the autumn term.
