World Book Day

World book day takes place on 4th March.  The school’s whole theme is based around the story Alice in Wonderland.  Your child is invited to dress up on that day as a character from the story however, please feel free to send them in any other dressing up clothes.  We really don’t want you to go out especially to buy anything.  In addition, if your child chooses not to dress up that is absolutely fine too. Nursery also has some washed dressing up clothes ready if any child would like to use those instead, so again please don’t go out and buy anything new.

Thanks again

Ladybugs in Basecamp 🍃🍂

This morning, Ladybugs enjoyed going to explore Basecamp. 🌳

We talked about the fire we will be having soon, the dangers of fire and a child said “fire will burn you if you touch it” 🔥🪵

The children then explored the base camp digging and then transporting the dirt using the wheel barrows.

Another child found a big stick and another found a small stick. We discussed the size difference between the 2 sticks describing them as bigger and smaller. We measured the difference between the sticks. 📏🪵

If you are learning at home have you been outside exploring? What did you find? Where did you go? Can you send us some photos or a video on evidence me 🌳

Ladybugs at home 🐞🏡

I just wanted to say a massive thank you and well done to everyone learning and working from home, you’ve all been amazing!

We have really enjoyed setting challenges and receiving the evidence me photos and videos of all the lovely things you are doing at home as well as your challenges 🏡

These are some more photos of the activities some of the ladybugs children have been up to while at home this week…

Happy Half Term, stay safe and healthy, we will see you back in nursery on the 22nd of February.

Becky and the Team 🐞🌳

Pancake Day 🥞

Next week during half term is pancake day…

I have added a picture of the recipe and ingredients should you wish to make your own pancakes next week during your half term break 🥞

Once again I want to take the opportunity to thank everyone for working so hard, whether it’s been in nursery or at home. Thank you for all the lovely evidence photo and videos, they are much appreciated! ☺️

Have a lovely, well deserved half term break.

Take care and stay safe,

Becky 🐞 and the Team

Internet safety day

We have talked about keeping safe on the internet today at nursery.  One of the useful tools we use is “Smarty the penguin” in which a character has to make good choices in a range of real life scenarios when using the internet.  I’d definitely recommend it for you to share again with your child again as this will help establish some safe practises.

Please use the link below and select the appropriate age group.

Chinese New Year celebrations

Yesterday the children in nursery took part in celebrating Chinese New Year. We talked about the story of the zodiac animals and how the Chinese celebrated this special time. We had fun making lanterns and trying to write in the Chinese way, it was very tricky! For snack the children enjoyed trying a range of foods, we had noodles, curry, sweet and sour dip with spring rolls, yummy 😋

Chinese New Year! 🐲🐉

This week in nursery we are looking at the celebration of Chinese New Year. The picture attached shows some exciting ideas you could do at home to celebrate. Making lanterns, dragons and even looking at money.

I have also added some document links to pictures of Chinese New Year and how it’s celebrated. Plus a colour in dragon mask or lantern if you wish to have ago.

I’d love to see any of the activities you do at home, so please continue to send your key workers the lovely photos and videos like you already have been doing.

Again thank you and enjoy 🐲🐉
Becky 🐞 and the Nursery Team ☺️

Art day

What a fantastic response to our art day, we seen lots of magnificent art come through the evidence me app. It’s nice to see bright, beautiful paintings, they certainly did make me smile. I love how everyone has chosen to do something different using different mediums and materials, really caught my eye! Some very proud faces on here displaying their wonderful creations for all to see. Keep them coming. 👨🏼‍🎨🧑🏾‍🎨

As most of you are aware now nursery is only open to a hand full of children. For those that have been contacted to stay at home we don’t want you to miss out, Mrs Curnow will be posting daily activities until the 11th on google classroom at 9:30 and a home story at 2:30 (these are recorded so you can access them all day)

Please do not hesitate to call or message us if you need any help or have any questions or queries.

Thank you again Mrs Giordano and all the team.
