Collective Worship


The children have been planting sweet peas, sun flowers, lettuce, potatoes and herbs. We compared the seeds noting the size, colour and shape. The potato seeds were the biggest and the basil seeds were the smallest. We have been using the magnifiers to look closely at the shoots as they have grown. 🌱🧐

Giuseppe Arcimboldo

The children have been learning about healthy food. We have used books and the internet to gain an understanding of what foods are healthy. We learnt that fruit and vegetables are especially good for us. We used our senses to explore different fruits, discussing the texture and taste. We then looked at Giuseppe Arcimboldo’s friut pictures and designed our own. We noticed the shape of the bananas and thought that they resembled a mouth. The olives made great eyes and mushrooms noses. 🍄 

Our Art Work

The children made their own dough and used it to make a model of their favourite fruit. The children could say why they liked fruit. “It’s sweet, juicy, sticky and very tasty,” they said. 

World Book Day

Today we celebrated Pancake day. The children sampled some delicious pancakes and then had a pancake race!

The Lion Dance

The children acted out the lion story and dance.

Making a lion

We read about the lion dance and watched the film clip of the lion dancing around Liverpool China Town. We then used different patterns to create lovely designs on our fabric. 

Making Fans

The children looked at the Chinese fans and then we used pens to create the different patterns.

Printing with our leaves.

We have been thinking about Harvest Time and the where our vegetables come from. We discovered that pumpkins grow in the ground and that they start their lives as small seeds.

Happy Pirates! 🤗

Thank you all for your kind donations of party food, we had a jolly time! 🗺🏝🧁🎈
The children have enjoyed talking about their holidays and have enjoyed sharing their holiday photos. Some children went to the seaside and were able to talk about some of the sea creatures that they saw. We have read the text Commotion in the Ocean by Giles Andreae and we found out all about the animals that live in the sea. We then went on a trip to the Blue Planet Aquarium to sea some of the creatures from our story book.

We made a Blue Planet Aquarium 🐠🐡🐟

The children have settled back into Nursery and are getting to know their new friends, they have been creating a lovely classroom display of 'friendship' using their handprints. 

Our Friendship Display

The children are settling into the Nursery routines and are making full use of activities on offer. The children love the free flow play both indoors and outside.
