The three little pigs
This half term nursery will be looking at fairytales. We have chosen ones we hope the children will already recognise. Last week the children listened to Goldilocks and the 3 bears story. They enjoyed acting out the story and wearing bear costumes.
Day and Night
We carried on our theme of mystery and magic with day and night focusing on night time. This included looking at the moon, stars, shadow work and nocturnal animals. We read stories such as owl babies, night monkey, day monkey and Whatever next. The children were excited by the dark and created light and shadows through the dark den.
Our mystery and magic continued into Christmas activities where we wrote letters to Santa, read stories about him and made Christmas decorations and cards. We had a nursery Christmas party where the children had a visit from the jolly fellow himself!!
On the farm
The children have been learning all about farming. We know the animals that belong on the farm and we know the noises they make.
We have learnt that the food we eat is grown on a farm and tractors have a very important job to do.

We made a big scarecrow and named him George. We looked at different shapes when making our own scarecrow heads. Some had triangle hats and some had square hats.
After listening to the ‘scarecrow’s hat’ story we created our own cornfields.
Our Harvest Festival is on Wednesday 18th October at 9am or 2.30pm. We have been practicing our song “we are little pumpkins” ready for our performance.
Mystery and Magic!
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.

As part of our Arts and Cultural week nursery have been learning about Hawaii. We have been looking at the brightly coloured clothes they wear and making our own. We also tasted some of the exotic fruits that grow in Hawaii like pineapples and mangos. We also listened to Hawaiian music and learnt a dance to one of their favourite songs.
