The Critter Keeper

The Grasshoppers had a visit from Dave the Critter Keeper on Monday. The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and most of the children had a go at touching them. We saw a Snake, Tarantula, Cockroach, Hedgehog, Giant Snail, Rabbit, Gecko and a Frog. What an exciting start to the week. We also had fun on the wheeled toys and went to the woodies on Wednesday. We have had such a great time. Hope you all have a good weekend!

Sports day

   Sports day was a huge success on Monday. The children did really well and all took part and had fun! Well done everyone.

Last week our children moving onto primary one had the chance to experience some of the activities on offer with their new teachers. They were all very excited.

We said goodbye to our butterflies in the garden and enjoyed watching them fly off into the sky. We have enjoyed caring for them and have learned a lot in the process. It is getting very close to the holidays now and we still have some exciting activities planned. Watch this space!

Mini beasts

For the last two weeks we have been discussing mini beasts. We have our very own Caterpillars and are very excited to see them turn into butterflies. We have had discussions and watched educational videos of the life cycle of a butterfly. The children are very excited about them as I am sure you have heard.

We have also been making the most of the lovely weather! We have been to the wildlife garden, out on the wheeled toys and also climbed on the gym trail. Please could you remember to apply sun cream and pack a sun hat before your child comes in so we can continue enjoying the good weather.

 Practice sessions have also started for sports day. The children really enjoyed the experience! I am sure they will do great on the day. Have a great weekend.

Treasure basket fun!

The children have enjoyed exploring the treasure basket this week. They have spent time investigating how to use the camera and have even managed to take their own photos. They used their senses smelling old perfume bottles and using their fine motor skills to manipulate small tools. If you have anymore items at home you no longer need we would greatly appreciate them. There is a list on the notice board of items we could use. We have also been making the most of the nice weather and had fun on the wheeled toys and exploring the wildlife garden. Enjoy the weekend everyone!

Last week of term

   We have had a great week taking part in lots of Easter activities. The children had a great time at the woods rolling their eggs that they had decorated especially for the occasion. They even had a go at rolling themselves down the hill! We hope you all have a fantastic break. We all look forward to seeing you all in two weeks, all refreshed and ready for more fun at nursery. Happy Easter everyone.

Music session

This week we were lucky to have a music session with Grace’s parents. The children thoroughly enjoyed singing and dancing to the music on the keyboard, thank you we had a great time! We also continued to do some experiments. We looked at what happened when we mix oil and water with an effervescent tablet! the children loved watching the bubbles form in the bottle. We experimented with the light box and various materials to investigate what happens when they are put onto the light. We made some lovely cards and poems for mothers day too, hope all the mummies had a lovely day yesterday.

Science week

We have had a great week trying out various experiments for science week. The children have been very enthusiastic and have all taken part. We carried out a different experiment each day which ranged from erupting volcanoes to magic milk! This sparked a lot of interesting questions and discussions and the children have thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Nursery Golden Tickets


On Monday we will be introducing our own nursery version of ‘Golden Tickets’. These will be given to children who demonstrate positive behaviour including helping others, listening well, looking after nursery resources and anything else staff feel needs to be flagged up and rewarded. The children will post their tickets into our own gold post boxes and every day a winner will be rewarded with a sticker. We plan to reward the children with the most tickets by having a snack picnic under the Christams tree in the infant hall at the end of term.
