Nursery Trip to Bedford's Park

Nursery had an exciting and busy day at Bedford's Park today. We explored the woods and followed the teddy bears to have a special teddy bears picnic. When we arrived at the right spot the children were sent to find plates, knives, forks and a three course meal for the bears. The bears had a lovely feast!
The children also swept the long grass to discover mini-beasts. They enjoyed swooping the nets and examining the creatures in the jars after. We also checked the trees and shook brances to see which living creatures we could discover.
Everyone was well behaved and had a fun experience, we are sure they will sleep well tonight! A big thank you for all of the parent support we received today it is very much appreciated.

Nursery Pirate Experience

Nursery children enjoyed being pirates for the day last week. We had some fantastic pirate costumes which really helped the children get into role for their story experience. After showing off their outfits, creating treasure maps and building planks to walk the children were then whisked away to help the captain pirate find some buried treasure! On their mission they had to scrub the decks, hoist the sales, listen carefully to the pirate stories and return safely to land.

Perfume Potions!

Reception have been busy this week brewing their own perfumes and potions! The children planted some herbs in our garden area earlier this term and have been looking after them. The herbs are now flourishing, the mint in particular! So we decided to add some to our perfume making tray. The herbs have sparked much discussion over where the come from, what they smell like and what the perfumes and potions will do to you!


"Oooh it smells nice!" Darci 
"We need more mint, put some in here." Chisom 
"This potion makes you really big." Aisha

Pirates AHOY



On Friday, Reception and Nursery had a wonderful Pirate Day! We all put on our sailor outfits and took to the seas, uncovering treasure, decoding treasure hunts, rescuing hostages and walking the plank.


We were all so excited to come to school dressed as pirates and we all looked incredible! 


During maths we went on a treasure hunt, counting all the coins we collected and practising our coin recognition. During the day we had treasure hunts to uncover, mysteries to solve and maps to make, helping us find our hostage teddy bears.




We had an absolutely wonderful day, thank you to all the grown-ups who helped us dress up and get into the pirate spirit for the day! 


Shiver me timbers!


Yo ho ho, it's a pirate's life for us! 


Ahoy me hearties, see you next time! 
Ciao for now!

Nursery: Outdoor area open for business!

Nursery children are having a great morning using our own outdoor area today! We have been blowing bubbles, washing dinosaurs and creating giant art pieces. There is still some work to be completed before we have access to the whole space including a mud kitchen and sand area.

Dear Parents and Carers,

The children listened and behaved beautiful during their author visit with Elieen Brown. They were even lucky enough to hear her newest book, which is not yet published! We have been checking the caterpillars progress daily and the caterpillars have now made their chrysalis. It has been fantastic to see so many children coming down the ramp independently in the mornings, keep it up! If your child is a little unsure, why not walk down with a friend.

This week will be reading a favourite of many, The Gruffalo. We will be making wanted posters for the Gruffalo and creating our own monsters. This Friday is pirate day in early years and we will have a day of pirate themed activities. The children are welcome to dress as a pirate for the day if they wish.

We are very excited about our final trip of the year to Weald Park, where we will become pirates for the day! Please complete the Google form on facebook or the blog. If you are having trouble, please check in with your class teacher. We will also be looking for parent volunteers to help on the trip. Thank you to everyone who has already filled this out and paid via sQuid.

Communication and Language
