Nursery - A new year, new friends.

Posted: 18 October 2019

This half term in nursery, lots of new children have joined us. The children are settling in well and have been learning new routines and making new friends.

The children have enjoyed this half term’s ‘Fabulous 5’ books; Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See?, How Do I Put It On?, Peace at Last, If You See a Kitten, and Owl Babies. We have read a them a lot and had activities focused around them, so the children are now able to join in with key phrases, talk about and describe events or characters from them, and some can re-tell them almost word for word. I wonder what our next ‘Fabulous 5’ stories will be?

We had a visit from the Devon Birds of Prey Centre with 3 owls which the children really enjoyed, and followed on nicely from The Owl Babies story.

Have a lovely October Half Term, and we look forward to seeing you all back on the week commencing 28th October 2019.




Nursery and Reception - Safer Internet Day!

Posted: 5 February 2019

We have been learning about how to keep ourselves safe when we are using the internet!

First we talked about what the internet is which is a bit tricky to understand, although some of us knew that it is to do with using phones, tablets and computers. We then watched a video and talked about making safe choices and asking a grown-up if we are unsure when playing games on the internet. Finally, we talked about the different symbols we might see when we are playing games on the internet and what they mean, and sorted them into ‘yes’ and ‘no’ symbols.

Reception and Nursery Work Together!

Posted: 6 November 2018

Today in the garden the children noticed our wooden boat had gone! Unfortunately the boat had become rotten and so had been removed. The children decided to work together to build a new boat, carefully carrying planks across the garden. The planks were very long and heavy, so they had to work in pairs to carry them. Some of the older children instructed the younger ones on how to carry the planks safely. The children designed their boat, and even included steering wheels and a plank for cheeky pirates to walk! What a lovely day they have had playing pirates and going on adventures!
