We have had such a lovely start to our Summer Term. All of our new children have settled really well and have been excited about joining in all our activities this week. The theme for this week is The Three Little Pigs and the children have enjoyed listening to stories, dressing up and even collecting their own sticks ready to build their own house of sticks. We will be continuing this theme next week and have lots more exciting activities planned! With the weather warming up, please can you send your child to school with a named sun hat and suncream as many of our activities will be taking place outside. Thank you!
We have had a very busy week in Acorn Class. Thank you to all our grown ups who came for our Stay and Play session on Monday. It was lovely to have such a good turn out and the children were thrilled to have you in Nursery with them. The children have loved looking for the first signs of spring in our Nursery garden this week. They have spotted buds on the trees and have found lots of daffodils and even some daisies starting to grow in the grass. On Wednesday the children helped to plant out potatoes and have enjoyed watering them and looking out for the first signs of growth, we are still waiting! Next week, we shall be enjoying some Spring / Easter crafts. Please bring in any competition entries on Monday morning as the Mayor will be in to Judge. Good Luck!
Well Acorn Class have had lots of fun celebrating Science Week! We have made rockets, made under the sea bottles, started to grow cress, explored bubbles and ice. Photos to follow next week!
Forest School also finished this week for the term and will restart after the Easter holidays.
Next week we are looking forward to learn about the Spring and begin to celebrate Easter!
Please remember our next Stay and Play session is on Monday 19th March 2 till 3pm, this times theme will be Easter. It would be lovely if you could come and join us for the session!
This week, we have been busy looking closely at the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We have had fun building bridges, using small world toys and re-enacting the story. Next week is a very exciting week for us as it is our Science week. We shall be doing lots of investigations and taking on the role of real scientists! If anyone has any plastic bottles, yoghurt pots or similar please could you save them for us over the weekend and bring them in next week as this will help with some of the investigations we have planned. Many thanks.
Wishing you all a happy weekend!!
This week we have had lots of fun reading The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We have acted out the story with masks and small world toys. We also explored bridges in PE. We have been singing the Gruffalo song. We will contine to enjoy this story next week!

We have had a lovely end to our half term. This week, the children have enjoyed celebrating Chinese New Year. We have made lanterns, Chinese flags and even a huge dragon which we used for our Dragon dance. Thank you to all our parents who have been to our Stay and Play and Reading sessions this half term, the children have loved having you in Nursery with them. We shall be continuing these sessions after half term and look forward to seeing you then.
We hope you all have a super half term break!
We have had another very busy week in Acorn class this week. The children have enjoyed making parrots with real feathers, designing their own pirate flag and mixing paint colours together to create new colours. Please do come along to our Reading Sessions on a Wednesday afternoon at 2.45. The children really look forward to showing you our Nursery and sharing their books with you. Remember next Friday 9th February is our Pirate day. Have you got your costumes ready?
On Friday 9th February Beech Class, Acorns and Little Acorns are invited to come to school dressed like a pirate!
Please start to think about a costume, nothing needs to be bought. An old pair of trousers that are too short and can be chopped off at the knee will be great. You could also cut down an old t-shirt, the more ragged the better – pirates only wore their best clothes on land! We’ll be making hats and eye patches to finish off the look ?
