Nursery Summer Fun

On Wednesday 20th July, we would like to invite parents/carers into nursery for a drink and biscuits to mark the end of term and give you opportunity for you to play with your child in nursery and share their favourite activities with you.

Timings:  10.30am -11.15am for the morning session and 2.15pm -3.00pm for the afternoon session.  If your child attends all day you are welcome to attend either of the visit times. Children who don’t normally attend on a Wednesday are welcome to join us with their parents/carers.

Please use the normal nursery entrances and not the reception entrance.  Sorry,  no mobile phones will be allowed in the nursery.

Thank you


Mud Kitchen – Ladybugs 🐞

This week the ladybugs team, have been busy getting our new mud kitchen tuff tray ready. Lots of you will have been able to see it on our top garden as you are coming into nursery already 🪴🌿

The children have loved exploring the herbs, plants, soil and bark. They have been mixing, scooping, emptying and filling lots of different containers. The children made potions, mud cakes and used our new sensory herb patch to get more lovely things to use in their ‘cooking’ 🍳

Ladybugs Art Day 🎨🐞

We’ve had an amazing day making the most of art day today!

This morning we did some BIG painting, we had a big long sheet of bright paper with lots of paint, rollers, brushes, and we even used our feet and hands. They children were in our forest school all in one suits and was allowed to get as messy as they liked. They absolutely loved every moment! As you can probably see from the photos and small video below 😂🐞

Ice play ❄️🐞

As it was so warm today in ladybugs the staff prepared so fun ice play resources. The children had to find different ways to get the animals out of the ice, they used their hands, tools, warm water, brushes and eventually managed to set all of the animals free 💦

Funnybones 💀

The book of the week in Ladybugs has been…

Funnybones 💀🐞

We have read the story a few times this week and had lots activities surrounding funnybones and our bodies.

We have done yoga, stretches, and sung heads, shoulders, knees and toes. We’ve had skeletons, bones and organs in the tuff tray for the children to explore and ask questions about.

Also we had funnybones songs to sing from YouTube, made funnybones play dough to make parts of the skeleton and used cotton buds to make skeleton pictures.

Next week is a little different as we are having Nursery rhymes as our ‘book of the week’.
