Easter bonnet parade.

The children had a great time today showing off their Easter creations. We paraded around the playground with the two year old Nursery and Reception class made an archway for us to walk through.

What do you think of our hats?

Welcome post

Welcome to Nursery.

This half term we have been learning all about People who help us. We have enjoyed visits from the Police, Fire Brigade and the ambulance service.

We hope you enjoyed watching our Nativity as much as we enjoyed performing it!

Next term we will be learning about the weather. More details to follow.

We would love to hear your comments about our learning. All comments are moderated before going live.

Summer Term

Welcome back to Nursery!

Cannot believe we are in the final few weeks of the year. This term our topic is transport and this week we will be reading the story Naughty Bus and finding out about the adventures of the bus. 

We have arranged for a flight attendant to come and talk to the children all about his job flying on the aeroplanes- check back for more details soon!

The Chickens have spent the half term at Mrs Townsend’s house and have had a great time free ranging around the garden (and eating lots of plants!) in the sunshine. They are looking forward to getting settled in their new coop which is currently being constructed by the site team. We would like to say a huge thank you for all your support in making this happen.

The chickens are 13 weeks old now and are growing fast. They have already started to get their combs and wattles. They can’t wait to see all the children back at Nursery tomorrow.

Cake sale!

Dear Parents/carers,

As you know the children have really enjoyed taking care of the chicks. As they are getting bigger we need to think about a permanent home outside for them.

We have decided to hold a cake sale to raise money towards a hen house for the chicks. The children have been busy baking and we will be selling cakes at the end the session on Thursday and Friday this week and at the Easter bingo next Wednesday.

Thank you for your continued support, we really appreciate it.

The Nursery team and the girls!

Forest School

Our first forest school session got underway today. It was wet and muddy but we didn’t let that stop us having fun!

We made shelters, planted bulbs and had hot chocolate under our shelter.

The Orchards Café!!

This week we are looking at how things grow. We will be planting a variety of vegetables, flowers and even trees in our forest area. We will be talking about what things they need to grow. Today we read the story Oliver’s vegetables  and made our own soup in the water tray. On Friday come to school in red or a comic relief t-shirt and don’t forget your red nose!!

Today we launched the orchards café. Children will have the chance to be waiters or waitresses in our café and get to wear special aprons. The café aims to enhance our children’s communication skills, develop friendships and even form new ones. The café workers had a great time today serving the hungry customers!

We also moved the chicks into another new home today which was kindly borrowed from one of our parents. The chicks are loving the extra space now they are nearly three weeks old and  have grown lots. They spent the weekend at Mrs Atherton’s house and were a bit naughty!

 What do you think of our new home?

The Chick Diaries- Day 11

Today was a sad day because the Little Red Hen came to collect her chicks. We had time for a quick cuddle though!

But wait! She said we have done such a good job looking after them that we can keep some- yay!!

So Daisy, Rainbow, Isabelle and Elsa are staying at Nursery. Here they are in their new home.

The Chick Diaries- Day 9

Day 9

The children are really enjoying caring for the chicks and watching them grow. They are growing feathers on their wings and are becoming more lively and friendly each day.

Some of them even tried to escape! But they soon came back when it was time for food.
