(15 images)

Nursery took the theme of bedtime stories for our World Book Day celebrations this year. We all came to nursery in our pyjamas with our favourite teddy and bedtime story. We shared our books with our friends and in our groups. There was even time for some hot chocolate before our final story.

Winter Waether - Saplings - March 2019

(13 images)

The children enjoyed finding out first-hand about winter weather. The classroom was transformed into a winter wonderland, with a little help from some Year 6 snowflake makers. The children spent time in the snow den, explored cold colours, made ice sculptures and even caught snowflakes in the outdoor area.

The Lost Colours - Saplings - March 19

(10 images)

Nursery were visited by a little unicorn. She was sad because she had lost all of her colours from her mane and tail. Naturally the fabulous children in nursery wanted to help. So they began to explore nursery for all of the different colours, staring with the primary colours. At the end of the topic the children were skilled in finding different colours and were even exploring mixing colours with paint and light to make the colours they couldn’t find.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star - Saplings - October 2018

(11 images)

We saw stars this week in nursery. It all started with Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on Monday. We’ve read some beautiful stories about stars and can’t decide whether Star in the jar or How to catch a star is our favourite. We’ve had fum learning a counting rhyme all about dancing stars to help us with our understanding of the number sequence. We’ve enjoyed making stars in the playdough, glitter, sticks, water and ice too. We’ve also looked at how the artist Vincent Van Gogh created stars in his picture Starry Night.

We found out about the change of season. We began by exploring the sensory garden. We collected some leaves and fruit to take back to nursery to help us find out even more using our senses of sight, hearing, smell, touch and taste.
