This week in Nursery we have been learning all about the Diwali story and celebrations. The children have enjoyed hearing the story, looking at special items, making Mehndi hand patterns and also practising their writing skills by making each other Diwali cards. Outdoor learning has included scavenger hunts using numbered pots. The children were challenged to recognise the number on the pot and find that amount of natural items. What a great start to the week!

In Nursery, we have been learning all about poppies and their significance. We took photographs of the children’s hands and then printed a poppy shape using paint and an apple. Linking this to our literacy work, we tried to write the first few sounds in the word ‘poppy’. Some children could hear the initial sound and some could hear the second sounds too. We made a display with the message ‘Peace is in our hands’. In the afternoon, lots of children continued to create poppies and use the enhanced areas such as play dough to continue their learning. Well done Nursery, you have shown great maturity, respect and have work extremely hard.

A great start back to school for our Nursery class today! In class have been talking about Bonfire Night and fireworks.

We had some more new children on their taster days today. They have settled really well and it was lovely to see the existing Nursery children showing them how to use the areas. We saw the start of some friendships developing too. Some boys built a train track and garage together and tidied up before they moved onto another area!
