Autumn leaf printing

Hello everybody!

If you come into the Nursery you will see some beautiful prints made by the Nursery children. Would you like to know how we made them?

Firstly we looked around the Nursery garden to find some fallen leaves. We found all kinds of different shapes and sizes. The next day when the leaves were dry, we painted them in different autumn colours and used them to make a pattern. Come and have a look!

Welcome to the Nursery!

Hello everyone!

 

And a very big welcome to our new children and their families. We have been so busy during the last few weeks. We are getting to know each other and learning new songs and games. We are learning each other’s names and becoming good friends.

Come into the Nursery and you can see our painted names, hand prints, colourful shapes that we have made, and you will also see all we have to learn in each of our learning areas.

We are learning about ourselves in our topic, and learning about God’s Wonderful World throughout everything we do. The season is changing outside and we are learning lots about the changes that happen during Autumn.

What a wonderful day!

What a fantastic day we’ve had today! After a lovely end of year mass we all ate our dinner on the big field and had a teddy bear’s picnic. Then this afternoon we had an amazing treat of an ice cream or ice lolly from the ice cream van! Thank you for this lovely treat Mrs Ward and Mrs Gordon, a you can see we had a great time!!

Can you see what animal it is?

In the Nursery this week we have been sponge painting around an animal shape, and making silhouettes. We have really loved making them, look at the fantastic colours around each animal.

Can you guess what animals they are, looking at the shapes?

Do you remember the Doctor’s Surgery from the Nursery? Well now it has changed into a Vet’s surgery! Our topic in the Nursery is now ‘Animals’ so we are looking how a Vet and a Veterinary Nurse can look after your sick pets.

Come and see!

A very Spanish Joy Day!

The Nursery had so much fun at Joy Day this week! Christina taught us how to dance the Flamenco, she showed us how her special shoes make the loud tapping sound, and we all had a go. We played with her castanets and fans too.

Afterwards we celebrated more by hitting the Pinata! Everyone had a great time and each got some lovely sweets.

It was also Munashe’s birthday, what a great day to celebrate your birthday Munashe!

Making track patterns

Hi everyone,

We have been looking at different vehicles in the Nursery, especially those belonging to those people who help us. We’ve looked at:

  • Fire engines
  • Police cars
  • Taxis
  • Dumper trucks
  • Cement mixers
  • Tow trucks
  • Ambulances

… can you think of any more?

Just look at the patterns we’ve made with some of these vehicle’s tyres…

Froglets!!

Hi everybody!

We have some good news in the Nursery, the Frog spawn that grew into Tadpoles are now growing into Froglets! If you look closely you can see some back legs, and they are becoming more green in colour and are looking more speckled!
