‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Autumn Term A

Week 4

This week we have continued with owls and looked and the changes in Autumn.  The children have done some observational colouring for our display of conkers and the autumn leaves.  They have been developing their fine-motor skills on the collage table making a paper owl by tearing the paper to make feathers. 

On the Maths area the children were asked sort the rubber vehicles by colour onto the corresponding plates.

We had great fun at the end of the day using our gross-motor skills dancing with scarves.

Week 3

Owl Babies

Our first full week in Nursery and it's been lots of fun!

Nursery listened to Mrs Hughes read the story "Owl Babies" by Martin Waddell and on the smart board listened to some interesting owl calls.  We have made some lovely owl related crafts.  The children made a cute and fluffy owlet using a fir cone, made observational owl paintings and added feathers to their playdough sculptures. We finished the week with a tasty owl toast snack, yum!

Welcome to West Denton Primary School

We will share snapshots of our learning here across the year.  During induction visits the Nursery children have been learning routines and how to use the classroom equipment.  They explored the indoor and outdoor environments, stayed for lunch and have been making new friends.  All of the children have settled in very well and I am looking forward to a fun filled year!  Have a look at some of the things we have been up to ...
