This week in Nursery . . .

June 16th, 2017

Tiny Toes have been learning about the number six.  We can show six on our fingers using all the fingers on one hand and the thumb of our other hand.  We have watched some videos about the number six and tried to draw the number six in the air.


We have had some new friends come to play with us and they have been settling in over the last two weeks, finding out about our routines and learning where all our resources are kept.  We have all been much better at tidying things away and clearing up any mess that we have made outside.

There were lots of tomatoes left from our snack time so several of us helped to slice them up then Mrs Roome cooked them and made soup.  It was the tastiest tomato soup we have had!  We also had some sweet peppers to try at snack time.  There were red ones, yellow ones and orange ones.  We all held them and smelt them and some of us tasted them too.  There are some left over so we might make them into soup next week with some carrots we have been growing in our garden.

Tiny Toes are getting excited about our trip to Rosemoor Gardens next month.  Thank you to all the parents/carers who have returned their forms and contributions already. It really does help with the organisation.

This week in Nursery . . .

June 9th, 2017

We have enjoyed making some new play dough in Twinkle Toes.  We took turns to scoop out the ingredients and mix them together.  Afterwards we cut the dough up and shared it out between all our friends.  We liked feeling the warm dough with our hands and choosing different tools.

Tiny Toes loved going out for a windy walk on the field.  Our ribbons swirled and whirled in the breeze.  




We also helped to make some new play dough for our room.  We took turns to add the ingredients to the bowl and then once it had cooled down a little we kneaded the dough to make sure that all the ingredients were mixed together. Devlin asked for mint flavour so we added that then coloured the dough with green paint too.

We spotted that lots of the sand had washed away with the rain so we decided to fill it up.  We worked together to bring the bags of sand down in the wheel barrows.  It was hard work and we had to really work as a team.  the bags were so heavy!  Once we had transported them down to the sand pit we emptied them out then Mrs Roome put the bags in the bin as it isn’t safe for us to have plastic bags lying around.

In Nursery . . .

May 26th, 2017

We have had a really busy fortnight.  Last week in Twinkle Toes we worked really well as a group to build a HUGE wall.  We carefully added bricks, taking notice of what our friends were doing next to us.  We kept building until the wall was nearly as big as us!

This week we have enjoyed playing with some new toys.  They were very popular but we are learning how to take turns.  We looked carefully at the shape pictures and matched the colours and shapes to the ones in the pictures.

In Tiny Toes we were learning how we could find out information from the internet.  We saw lots of rain clouds on the BBC website so we knew that we wouldn’t be spending too much time in the garden.  We also found out about different pets which we could have.  One of the pets we looked at was a parrot.  Liam told us there was a fish called a parrot fish.  We didn’t know anything about them so we looked them up on the internet.  They are amazing creatures.  Ask us what we discovered!

This week we were learning about how to make up our own stories.  We chose a character, thought about where they might be and decided what problem they could have.  It was fun making them up together.  

All our mums who were expecting little brothers or sisters for us have had their babies.  It was really exciting to have them all come into nursery this week!

We also decided that the cabbage had grown enough to be eaten.  We helped cut the leaves off the stem then Mrs Roome chopped it up so that we could put it in bags to sell to the parents.  We hope those of you who bought some enjoyed it.  We’ll be having more vegetables for sale soon!

Chicks visit Reception

May 16th, 2017

This morning the children enjoyed a visit from 11 chicks. They arrived in a special box to keep them warm. After the chicks had become used to their new setting every child had a chance to hold one. Some chicks were very lively! The children felt their soft down and noticed how their wings were developing. The chicks were very hungry so were happy to feed from the children’s hands.

DSC01070 Thank you to MIss Angell for organising the visit and to Jo and Ayrton for bringing the chicks in.PTDC0006DSC01073 DSC01079 DSC01075 PTDC0005 PTDC0012 PTDC0010 DSC01065 DSC01074 DSC01083 PTDC0009 PTDC0007 DSC01071 DSC01069

This week in Nursery . . .

May 12th, 2017

We have been looking after our sunflower plants in Twinkle Toes.  We were excited to see they had grown! Some of us talked about them getting ‘bigger’ and ‘taller’.  We have enjoyed watering them each day and are eager to have our turn.


We all joined in mark-making on the big paper.  We like having lots of space to make big marks.  Some of us can talk about what our marks mean.  “I made Mummy.”


In Tiny Toes we have been exploring some of the battery-powered toys.  We learnt that there is energy in the batteries and it can make things move, give light, make heat and make sound.  We love playing the guitars and keyboard and making up our own tunes.

We have been trying to remember the names of different shapes.  Some of us played a computer game where you had to match the jigsaw pieces to the correct shape.  It was tricky as sometimes there were two shapes the same and it wasn’t easy to tell which shape should go where.
