Nursery's Weekly Activities
Muddy Monday - Every week we go to Reception's outside area. We will alternate between morning and afternoon sessions to ensure all children have the opportunity to take part. Please make sure wellies are provided for the children on this day.
Story Time - If you are able to, please join us to share a story with your child.
Please arrive at nursery at 11:30am if your child is in the morning sessions and 2:40pm if your child stays all day or for the afternoon.
Show and Tell - Each week the children take it in turns to bring in a favourite item from home. Every child will have a turn to share and discuss this with their friends.
Cooking/Baking/Food Tasting - Each Thursday the children enjoy cooking and sometimes food tasting. A donation of £1 each half term is gratefully received to allow this to take place.
Favourite Book Day - Each week the children take it in turns to bring in their favourite book from home. The child can then share and discuss this with their friends before we read it together.
P.E. - Please dress your child in practical clothes and shoes that are easy to take off and put on. Please do not send your child in dresses, skirts or tights on this day.
Reading Books - We change the children's reading books on a Friday so please bring your reading books to Nursery in your child's book bag on this day.
Over the last couple of weeks we have been learning about Chinese New Year. The children have thoroughly enjoyed this topic and have got very excited over the activities. We have turned our home corner into a Chinese restaurant and decorated it with beautiful red and gold decorations. The children have had a go at writing 'Happy New Year' in Chinese characters, made paper plate pigs, paper chain dragons, joined in with Chinese ribbon dancing and learnt all about Ian and how he celebrates Chinese New Year.

Previously this term, we have been learning about winter. One week, we focused our learning on snowmen. It was mentioned that snowmen melt when the sun comes out so we decided to look at solids and liquids. This involved the children making jelly, which starts as a solid, turns into a liquid and then becomes a solid again. As a very special treat to go with their jelly, the children had ice cream too! This sparked conversation about ice cream becoming a liquid when it melts. We have also blow painted melted snowmen and had a go at drawing one on the interactive whiteboard.
