‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Spring Term B

Week 6

 Easter Stay and Play

We are over the moon to be able to welcome our parents into Nursery this week for our 'Stay and Play' Easter sessions.  The children were so happy to have their parents/carers in and wanted to show them around their Nursery.  They all made some lovely Easter crafts.

Week 5

 Bear Bread

Nursery followed simple instructions to make toasted bear bread.  Our finished designs looked just like a bear!

Week 4

We're Going On A Bear Hunt

This week we have focused on one of the children's favourite stories.  They have joined in with the repeated refrains and made up actions to accompany them indoors and out. Our fabulous students have been helping the children make story maps using collage materials and encouraged the children to retell the story as they worked.


We hope you all like your Mother's Day cards and have a lovely day on Sunday.

Nursery have enjoyed spending lots of time outdoors with plenty of activities to keep us busy.  The children loved pumping up the new balls themselves and developed their throwing and catching skills.  They have used number tracks with the cars and den making on the climbing frame.

Long may the sunny weather continue!

Week 3


Nursery have changed our role-play area to a veterinary surgery.  The children could choose to be a pet owner, vet or nurse. We developed their language and communication skills by talking about their pets and ailments. 

I Can See a Rainbow

Magical fun in the wind with the rainbow parachutes!

Comic Relief

We had an AWESOME day dressed up as superheroes in the sun.  Thank you for all of your kind donations.  The schools has raised a whopping amount of nearly £600!

Week 2

On the Farm

We have began looking at farm animals this week. The children have been choosing which animals they would like in their own farm and making a collage picture to represent it.  On Wednesday, the children made their own little pig biscuits with lots of pink icing.  Yum!

Week 1

 Pancake Day

Nursery have been enjoying the story ‘Mr Wolf’s Pancakes’ this week.  The children all helped to make traditional pancakes on Tuesday to mark the beginning of lent.  They measured, mixed and whisked.  The children really enjoyed eating the pancakes, they were delicious!  We also had great fun flipping the pancakes in a pan.

World Book Day

Today Mrs Hughes opened the Nursery door, not to the children we were expecting but to lots of wonderful book characters!
