Nursery Learning- 20.01.23

 Nursery Learning- 20.01.23

It's been another busy week in nursery! 

Incredibly Icy

The chilly weather just mean there is more to explore. The children were thrilled when they went outside to see that the water in tuff tray had turned to ice! After they had the best time bashing and smashing it into little pieces, we decided we would use the paints to turn them different colours. The children loved watching how the paints move and spread on the water and ice. 

By the afternoon, the ice had all melted so it was time to put on our waterproof on and/or our  welly boots and go splashing about in puddles and explore using the water. 

This is the children using paint brushes and water to create patterns and pictures.  

Brilliant Building 

These super boys spent a long time working together building their amazing building. They said they had built towers for all the goodies! We loved seeing their concentration, imagination and collaboration in full force! 

Delightful Dough  

In nursery, we love our playdough. It helps children’s hands develop the strength, dexterity, and control needed to manipulate everyday items such as scissors, pencils, zippers, and buttons. 

This week the children have begun to make the playdough themselves. Following simple instruction cards they have used flour, salt and oil to create some super dough. This is a great activity to do at home using ingredients you may already have in your cupboard. Ask the children if they can remember what you need!


Late drop off and pick up times: If you arrive after 9am for morning drop off, you will need to go through the school office. If you are late collecting your child, they may be taken to the school office for collection. 

Wellie boots- Please ensure your child has a pair of wellie boots in school. We spend a lot of time outside, whatever the weather.

A change of clothes- Please ensure your child has a spare change of clothes (including socks and underwear) in their bag. If you have any pants/knickers or socks at home that belong to the nursery, please can you return them as we are running low. 

A quick reminder incase you missed last weeks post, here are the new faces in nursery who have taken over for Mrs Rice: 

Mrs Stanley (Monday)   Miss Tynan (Tuesday and Wednesday)  Miss Chappel (Thursday and Friday)
