Nursery class news

Chinese new year 2016

Children in the EYFS have been learning about, and celebrating, Chinese New Year. We turned our role play area into a Chinese restaurant and enjoyed tasting; noodles, spring rolls, rice and prawn crackers. The children also learned about the story of the Chinese Zodiac and made Chinese dragons and masks to celebrate the new year.

World Book Day 2016

Nursery children really enjoyed celebrating World Book Day 2016. We listened really well to Mr Crosier reading his favourite story. 

After reading the Farmyard Hullabaloo, Nursery children joined Year Two and created our own Hullabaloo making animal masks from the story.

 Thank you to all the parents, Nursery looked fantastic in their World Book Day costumes and Pajamas!  

Growth and planting

Nursery and Reception children have really enjoyed our topic on Growth over the past few weeks. The children looked at different seeds and planted them in the Early Years outdoor area. we are excited to see what has grown when we go back to school after the holidays.

Keep checking the nursery page for more photos and news about what the children have been learning.
