This week in Nursery- 8/1/21 

Well what a strange week it has been, but it hasn't stopped us being really busy. The children of key workers in Reception and Nursery have formed a lockdown 'bubble' and the nursery children have been very busy indeed. In our penguin tuff tray we have been exploring different textures and having great fun popping bubble wrap. We have also made and counted penguins.We have used pipettes to drop colour onto snowflakes and explore mixing colours. We have decorated some winter hats and practised recognising and matching numbers up to 5. It was also great fun to complete our winter sheets which helped with pencil control. Happy New Year to you all. Stay safe!

During really bust last week of term we decorated our own festive jumpers, made Christingles . Created some eco-friendly reindeer food using a pestle and mortar to crush cereal. We then added snowflake punches to make shapes in leaves and paper. We enjoyed some messy play with candy canes, mark making in paint. Finally we enjoyed singing and practising actions to Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and enjoyed a delicious Christmas lunch!

This week in Nursery-11/12/20 

It's getting very festive in Nursery. This week we have been finding patterns and matching sets in the tuff tray. We have also explored textures and used small tools in the tuff tray with our 'Sensory Snowman'. We have made Rudolph hats, handprint Christmas trees, amazing buildings and designed gingerbread houses. We have been practising tracing using Christmas worksheets. We were asked the question- "What is Christmas? and How do you celebrate Christmas?". This week we used teamwork to build a bridge across the tuff trays so that the Snowman could get to his house. Finally, we had a fantastic Christmas party and we played pass the parcel which helped us to take turns. We look forward to the last busy week of the term next week!

This week in Nursery 4/12/2020 

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Nursery this week. Children have helped to make a Snowy Christmas train track in the tuff tray by sieving icing sugar for snow! There has been lots of Christmas crafting going on  including: making cards, creating snowmen and following instructions to decorate them e.g. 'Give him 2 eyes and 3 buttons!" We have also decorated our Christmas tree which was kindly donated by Mole Valley Farmers. We have also had lots of fun finding our Elf 'Sparky'.
Remembering the real meaning of Christmas, we have been exploring our Nativity scene.
In the role play area we have been playing in our Christmas post office. We have also practised some Comic Yoga and copied our names in chalk! Phew what a busy week.

This week in Nursery- 27/11/20 

It has been another busy week in Nursery. We have been reading a brilliant book- Elmer the elephant - a firm favourite! This has helped us with learning to recognise colours and discuss some of our differences  including; eye colour, skin colour and hair colour. In the Elmer tuff tray we have been using tweezers to help with our fine motor skills and we have even made our very own Elmers! 
We have also been learning to recognise letters which make up our names and talking about our homes and families.
In the woodland area we have been hanging bird feeders and making shapes and letters with sticks.
Some of the week has seen good weather so we have been getting lots of exercise and also rolling dice to help us to recognise numbers. `in the water play are we have been finding out about sea creatures.
Finally, we were all very excited when Sant, complete with mask, paid us a visit and delivered a Christmas tree! We had fun smelling and feeling its branches before we decorate it next week!

This week in Nursery- 20/11/20 

We have had another busy, fun-packed week of learning in Nursery! We learnt all about road safety- looking in our traffic curiosity box, making lollipop signs and practising safely crossing the 'road' (in the school hall). We have also been talking about Kindness and what this means. We have sorted cards into friendly and unfriendly acts and listed to a brilliant book called 'Teeth are not for biting!"
Our Autumn theme continues with our Hedgehog tuff tray where we matched quantities and numerals up to 5 and we have also made bird feeders for the outside area. Also, this week we have been learning lots of Nursery rhymes and singing and using lots of percussion instruments. What a lot of learning!

This week in Nursery- 13/11/20 

We have been so very busy in Nursery this week!. To celebrate Remembrance Day we have made a lovely poppy field collage, poppy sun catchers and poppy paintings. The Hindu festival of light, Diwali is upon us and we have been busy with Rangoli pattern threading, Rangoli magic painting, making a Diwali curiosity box and some salt dough Diyas lamps. Unfortunately, Mrs Symons left one in the microwave a little too long and set off the whole school fire alarm! Luckily, this resulted in just a melted plate and a nasty smell!
Friday was Children in Need day and we made some great Pudsey masks and had lots of fun with tweezers picking out the Pudseys and the Pom Poms. If that wasn't enough we have also been sorting Autumn leaves- Phew! Check the website next week to see what we have been learning.
