Autumn 2

WOW …. Just look how busy we have been in Nursery!



This term has been filled with fun, laughter, new experiences and lots of learning.


We started the term celebrating Bonfire Night with the children sharing their own experiences of what they saw and heard.  The children created their own Bonfire café and created firework pictures.


The children enjoyed learning about Remembrance Day and enjoyed making Poppy biscuits and making their own Poppies, exploring different ways to join materials together.  The children worked hard to create their own representations of Poppies to remember all those special people who work hard to keep ourselves and our families safe.


We had so much fun learning about Diwali, a special Festival of Light.  The children made their own Rangoli patterns to welcome in good luck and explored mark making patterns to create Mendhi patterns.  The children were fascinated by the story of Rama and Sita and enjoyed using the puppet theatre to act out the story.  The children also enjoyed dressing up and joining in with traditional dancing.


November also saw the start of Forest School.  32 children put on their coats, welly boots and all set off to Forest School!  The children love exploring the environment and listen so well to all the instructions to make sure we all stay safe.  We have lots of fun at Forest School.


We also enjoyed hosting our very first Thrive event, inviting our ‘grown-ups’ into school.  The hall was filled with laughter and smiles as faces were painted and nails were polished!


Our half termly book ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ proved to be a firm favourite with all the children.  The children became story tellers and made their own story maps.  The children also became bear detectives learning all about different kinds of bears.  We produced a non-fiction book all about bears and developed our cutting skills creating bear posters.


We finished the term celebrating Christmas in style.  The children worked hard learning lots of new songs to tell the Christmas Story and our families were treated to an amazing, fabulous, all singing and dancing performance!  We think everyone went away feeling very proud and it was a great way to start the run up to Christmas.  We were treated to a wonderful Christmas Pantomime – Oh yes, we were! The children were a wonderful audience joining in with all the fun.  We also had a very special visit from the ‘big man in his red suit’ and filled our tummies with a scrumptious Christmas Dinner!  What a way to finish a very busy term.


All that’s left to say is … We hope you have a very Merry Christmas and wish you a Happy New Year!
