Spring Term 2017 - 

This half term in Nursery we have been learning about shapes and patterns. We celebrated Chinese New Year by tasting different Chinese food and we have been working hard in Phonics, looking for our initial sounds and practising them.


Autumn Term 2016 - 

In Nursery we have been learning all about circles,squares,triangles and rectangles. We have been finding out how many sides they have and if we can find any in our Nursery.

We have also been learning about Autumn. We had lots of fun on an Autumn walk to look for leaves and acorns. We then put them on our Autumn table back in Nursery. We have also made our own Autumn pictures using our handprints and fingerprints using Autumn colours, red, orange and yellow. 

This half term we are reading lots of traditional tales, so far the children have enjoyed reading Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs. We have been building the houses from the story and seeing which one we would like to live in. In maths this half term we are focusing on number recognition to 10 singing number rhymes and ordering our numbers. This week we have had 5 currant buns as our number rhyme and the children have enjoyed making the currant buns in the play dough area.
