Meet a Creature visit

The children had a fantastic time meeting Dean the ranger and all of his animals from Meet a Creature. Dean brought a tortoise, snakes, a bearded dragon, a chinchilla, a tarantula, a giant African snail and a gecko to Nursery. Everyone was really excited to stroke and hold the animals some children even had animals on their heads!

Forest School Week 1

We went on a listening walk around school. We heard an ambulance, birds, a helicopter, crunchy leaves, wind chimes in the prayer garden and traffic. We also made loud and quiet sounds by tapping on different objects with sticks.

Christmas in nursery!

We had lots of fun at Christmas. We even had a very special visit from Santa!

Christmas Songs

Nursery performed lots of lovely songs for their Mums and Dads today. They were dressed up and joined in brilliantly.

Forest Schools

What is Forest Schools?

Forest Schools helps children develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or outdoor area.

Some nursery children are currently taking part in Forest School Activities.

Forest Schools Week 1:

We have been on a Listening walk. We heard birds, cars, a drill and even a dog bark!

Forest Schools Week 2:

We explored our outdoor area and collected natural objects such as leaves, stones and sticks. The children were very clever and made fantastic sculptures out of the things they had found.

Forest Schools Week 3:

The children worked together to build a brilliant tent. Afterwards we sat inside the tent and read the story Owl Babies.

Forest Schools Week 4:

This week the children carefully looked around the outdoor area to find mini-beasts. We found a centipede, some worms, some slugs and a few woodlice. A few children were very brave and held the mini-beasts in their hands!
