In our Nursery we have three classes, Class NM, NDM and NR! This term we will be taking time to settle in, make lots of new friends and becoming more independent.
At the moment we are practising our daily routines which include stories, snack, counting, fine motor skills activities, counting and circle times. We are also enjoy outdoor learning and walking to our Forest School once a week!
This week all our classes have been learning about the story 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt'. We have been practising actions, songs and retelling the story through lots of different activities. Below is one of our fantastic displays in NDM's classroom.
We want to remind parents to make sure they have a spare change of clothes and wellies for their children to keep in lockers as we will be sharing lots of activities outside as well as indoors!

Every week each class visits Wilbraham's Forest School to have an opportunity to experience outdoor learning to support both our skills in our prime areas and early writing and maths skills!
In Forest school this term we have been building dens! We decided what equipment we would need together and decided to bring rope, a waterproof mat and different sized sticks. We also collected leaves to put under the mat to make it comfier to sit on!
Our teachers were so impressed with how well we worked as a team to find the sticks and logs and to support each other to carry them.
As our story was 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' this week we also enjoyed re-enacting the story in Forest school and using our den building skills to build dens for little bears!
In our final week of the term Nursery hosted a Diwali 'Stay and Play' for parents. This meant all three classes got to participate in three different craft activities for Diwali and our Mum's and Dad's were able to join in!
We then went into the hall to share a Diwali buffet with food, treats and drinks for the parents, teachers and children! We also listened to some Diwali music, it was lots of fun!
Thank you to all the parents that kindly brought food and drink to share in Nursery and to everyone that attended our Diwali party!

We celebrated Bonfire night in Nursery as we talked about how we can keep safe near a bonfire and fireworks and traditions! We talked about the different colours and shapes fireworks make and the different noises they make.
We even got to make our own fire work pictures using glue, salt and food colouring which was a lot of messy fun! We even enjoyed making our own rockets and decorated them with different materials.
The school even put on our own firework show where we all went outside and watched the fireworks together. It was very loud and very colourful!
