All the colours of the rainbow!

This half-term, the children in Nursery have enjoyed learning all about colours: red, blue, yellow, green, orange, pink, purple, black, brown, and white. To help remember them all, we have been reading one of our favourite stories – Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What
Do You See? We have also talked about all of the things we notice around the nursery which are the same colour, like oranges and carrots!

Science week in Nursery

This week is science week. In the nursery we have been having lots of fun. We have explored the ‘sticky’ properties of magnets, looked closely at objects through the magnifying glass and explored colour and light through mixing activities and with our new light panel. We have also explored what happens to ice as it melts. Here are some of the activities we enjoyed.

Chinese New Year

This week the Nursery children have started learning all about Chinese New Year, which takes place on Friday 16th February. We watched a video of the story of Chinese New Year, and have been looking at some special Chinese artefacts and talking about why they are important to people who celebrate Chinese New Year!

Nursery Christmas Party!

As it is the last week of Nursery before the Christmas holidays, the children have had a big party! This week we painted our party hats and made Christmas decorations to take home. We also brought in lots of tasty treats to eat with our friends during our party. We even had some singing and dancing to our favourite songs. Now we are ready for a nice rest over the holidays!

Christmas is coming!

This week the Nursery children are beginning to learn about Christmas. We have talked about what some people do at Christmas, like sharing food and giving presents. We have also been decorating our big Christmas tree with baubles and tinsel!
