The children in Nursery are taught by Mrs Pinchi and are supported by Mrs Rice. We hope that you will visit this page often and find it useful in keeping up to date with your child's learning experiences.
This week we visited Calderstones Park. We had so much fun collecting leaves jumping in muddy puddles and acting out the story 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' by Michael Rosen. We even had time to visit the ice-cream parlour!
We're Going on a Bear Hunt
The children have been reading the story 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' by Michael Rosen. The children have used different props to decorate the outdoor area so that they could act out the story. The children enjoyed reading the repeated refrains within the text and are now beginning to retell the story independently.
Follow the link to hear the story 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' told by Nursery.
The link uses Chatta to record the children's learning. Look out for information about 'Chatta' later in the year!
Uh-uh! Grass! Swishy swashy, Swishy swashy!
Uh-uh! A river! Splash splosh! Splash splosh!
Uh-uh! Mud! Squelch squirch, Squelch squirch!
Uh-uh! A snow storm! Hoooo woooo! Hoooo woooo!
We have looked closely at the Bear's features and we noticed it had two googly eyes, big furry ears and sharp claws.

In Religious Education the children have been learning about what it means to be baptised. We looked at story books, shared photos and then used role-play to develop our understanding.
The Queens Knickers
The second half of Autumn Term we have been reading the story of The Queens Knickers by Nicholas Allan and learning about British Values. We discovered that the Queen lives in London and likes corgi dogs. We painted a portrait of the Queen and had a tea party with scones, cream and jam. We have transformed our reading area into Buckingham palace....it looks very posh!

Thank you to all the parents that were able to attend the Maths, Physical Development and Literacy workshops. We hope you found them useful.
Commotion in the Ocean
The first half of the Autumn term the children have been exploring the storybook 'Commotion in the Ocean' by Giles Andreae and David Wojtowycz. This text has supported the discussion of holidays and what the children did over the summer break. Thank you for sending in your holiday photos the children really enjoyed sharing them with the class. We have learnt the names of sea creatures and some of the very unusual features they have. The children were very glad that they did not have to walk sideways like the crab! We have also been very busy changing our reading area and giving it a seaside theme. We have painted some lovely sea creatures and experimented with bubble painting. We are really looking forward to you visiting Nursery for the Curriculum meeting on Wednesday 27th September where you will be able to see the lovely art work displayed around Nursery.
