Welcome

We would like to welcome you to the nursery webpage.

The children are settling in brilliantly and even in their first few weeks of being in nursery have been very busy.

We listened to the children’s interests and they love the Baker man song. We decorated cakes and made cookies. We learnt that our cookies were circle shaped.

We have enjoyed counting rhymes including five currant buns.

This week we are having fun with ten fat sausages.

We made play dough sausages and counted them into the pan.

We have acted out the song using pans and sausages and even made our own saucepans and pipe cleaner sausages.

cleaning our teeth!

The nursery had a dental hygienist visit nursery to show us how to look after our teeth. She brought her friend Skye in to show us how to properly clean our teeth we all had a go at cleaning Skye’s teeth with a rather large brush. The children learnt the importance of eating the right foods and that too much sugar can make their teeth go bad.

Parents come in and play.

The nursery children invited their grown ups to come and play with them this week. The children enjoyed having their grown ups come in and experience some of the activities that they had been doing for the fairytale topic. The grown ups were able to see how their children were progressing and could ask the staff for any advice to help their child’s learning. It was a fun week for all!
