Please browse our page to see some of the wonderful things we have been doing in our Nursery class.
The children have shown a great interest in worms and finding where they live. We decided to explore their habitats to find as many as we could and compared the sizes to find the biggest and the smallest. (Apologies for any future dug up gardens...)
As part of our 'To grow or not to grow' topic we have been doing a lot of planting. The children have looked at how to plant a seed, what it needs to develop and the different things we could grow. So far we have planted sunflowers and aubergines. We are having a competition to see whose sunflower grows the tallest. Take a look at the planting process.
In Nursery we have looked at healthy eating and different foods that are good for us. We read Oliver's Vegetables and came across rhubarb. We decide to look at the different ways we could enjoy rhubarb and decided to make our very own apple and rhubarb crumble. It was delicious, especially with a splash of custard!
The children have had so much fun the past few weeks making different modes of transport. We've made rockets, helicopters and even hot air balloons. The children have also worked together amazingly in a team to make their own choice of vehicle. Have a browse at their masterpieces.

We celebrated the Chinese New Year in style. We looked at the Zodiac story, took part in a memorable race and even had a try of some Chinese cuisine. We found the chop sticks especially tricky. Take a look at some of us (most) struggling with them.
In Nursery we have read the Gruffalo. We wanted to make our very own Gruffalo so we went on an Autumn walk to collect materials. We also managed to have our very own Gruffalo picnic.
To celebrate Harvest we looked at the story of the Little Red Hen. We looked at the process at making bread and even had a go at it ourselves. It was very scrumptious!
We have been very busy learning about the different colours in our 'Paint Me a Rainbow' topic. We have had lots of fun experimenting with different colours. Take a look at our ice mixing activities!
Our Wellie Wednesdays have been fantastic so far. We have especially loved being creative in the mud kitchen.
We have been getting rhythmical in Nursery thanks to help from Boogie Beat. The children have been singing dancing and laughing as much as they possibly can and have shown they have some serious dancing moves.
