Phonics drumming outdoors

Tuesday 3rd October


In nursery we are learning to listen to sounds in the environment and to make new sounds. Today we have been listening to the sounds we can make with the drum sticks on different surfaces. We found that drumming on metal sounded different to drumming on wood. We also listened to the different sounds the different drum sticks made. Please feel free to practise listening to sounds around the home and identifying them. We used a plastic bag and some noisy toys, the children had to listen and identify the toy from the sound it made. We have been giving them lots of praise and rewarding them with stickers for following the rules and routines in nursery. We are very proud of our nursery class.

Float or Sink?


float or sink


Nursery have been investigating floating or sinking. Keep it up at home; play in the bath or in the paddling pool this weekend, in the sun.


Adventurous Eaters




Delicious red and orange peppars formed the snacks for today! Most children were brave enough to try some and these five found that they really liked them and had seconds (thirds for one of them).


Have a great weekend in the sun!

Friday 11th May

We have had a lovely morning in Nursery. We have been learning about minibeasts, habitats and life cycles. We have been on a mini beast hunt, in the rain and found a woodlouse, some ants, a worm, a few snails and a slug.

Farm Trip

Nursery had a lovely time at the farm this morning.  We collected freshly laid eggs and fed the chickens and sheep.  Then we watched the farmer feed Pinky and Perky the pigs.  We ended our trip by visiting the cowshed, where we saw some calves drinking milk from the milk bar.

Ten in a Bed

We've been practising counting backwards from ten this week, by singing "Ten in a Bed." Mrs Owen brought a blanket in to make it more realistic and all of the children in today snuggled under and played rolling over and counting back. Get the teddies out at home, play and sing with your little ones!
