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!

Diwali Designs

This week the children in Nursery have been learning all about Diwali – the Hindu festival of lights. We talked about how Hindus celebrate their special time of year, about the food they eat and the lamps they make. We then used paint and glitter to make some sparkly Diwali cards!

Creating Our Own Snacks!

This week, despite their jam-packed schedule, the children in Nursery have managed to sandwich in some time for a snack. However, they didn’t have their usual apples, pears or bananas – they made their own jam sandwiches! After reading The Little Red Hen, the children were inspired to help each other with each step of the process. First, they had to spread some margarine on their slice of bread. Then, they had the option of adding some delicious strawberry jam, before folding it over, carefully cutting it in half with a knife, and finally eating it. Yummy!
