As of next week, we will beginning to think about Christmas – we will hear the Christmas story, incorporate our number and literacy work into our Christmassy theme, and do many lovely Christmas crafts.

If your child has a favourite Christmas story book they would like to show us, they are very welcome to bring it in to school (preferably named) and we will do our best to read it to the class. It will be kept safe and returned once we have read it together.

Thank you!


Shoe Shop

We had a lot of fun in Nursery last week in our new shoe shop! We were choosing, trying on (measuring our feet first, of course!), buying, selling, checking prices, colouring shoe pictures, answering phone calls, and so on.

Here are a few pictures to give you an idea of what we got up to!

Helpers in the Community

This week we have been talking about helpers in the community. So far we have talked about the role of a doctor, a postman/lady and a firefighter.

This morning we talked about fire fighters and we discussed the importance and use of the fire engine, sirens, flashing lights, hoses, ladders, etc. The children had some really great contributions! This afternoon we went outside and tried to put out a pretend fire (foam and red paint) with our hoses (pipettes filled with water). We had a lot of fun, as you can see from the pictures!

Big Draw

We had a really fun day in Nursery today – most of our activities were centered around drawing, as it was Big Draw day.

We used paints, chalks, candles, pencils, felt tips, cornflour (using our fingers or sticks to draw with!), sand, glitter, glue and more!!

Here are some photos to give you an idea of the sorts of things we got up to.
