Nursery spaces 2019
A group of children went back to the garden centre, to buy more seeds for our vegetable garden.

Come and visit our garden soon – you will be amazed to see how tall our beanstalks have grown! […]
In preparation for Book Day we created costumes inspired by characters from our favourite books. We brought our favourite books to school. We loved reading eachother’s books. We enjoyed the celebration. We LOVE books!
After reading Jasper’s Beanstalk, we began planting broad beans. We hope to eventually re-plant them in our ‘edible garden’, alongside our brand new raspberry and strawberry plants.

We also talked about and planned what kinds of cake we would like to make in future. We were fascinated to watch the digital timer counting down how long it […]
We were delighted to play in the snow. We demonstrated such collaboration while building a snowman. When we became too cold, we independently mixed hot chocolate to drink.

This week we have been singing and signing about the New Year. We used paint dispensers and squeegees to create artwork for our 2019 calendars. We were fascinated to see the marks we could make using this technique. We enjoyed singing the Months of the Year song and talking about when our birthdays are. Which […]
Thank you to all the parents and carers who sang, decorated and celebrated with us today!
