A busy week at Nursery……….

This week at Nursery we wanted to find out all about Halloween so in the water tray we had green slime to make our potions, we played a board game called ‘ Incy, Wincy, Spider, Isla said to make black playdoh, James wanted to read the story ‘ Room on the Broom’ and ‘ Winnie the Witch’, Lewis thought we could dress up in scary costumes and everyone wanted to decorate the playhouse outside and turn it into ‘ The Spooky House’. During the week we had some ‘Cool Creatures’ visit the Nursery and today we joined up with P1 class to play some games in the hall, finishing up with a Halloween themed snack. What great fun we’ve had this week!

Nursery’s Autumn Walk

At Nursery we have been learning what happens in the Autumn season and to finish off our topic Sam, the County Ranger came on an Autumn Walk with us. Sam took us down to the park in the village and played games with us and showed us lots of different things that are changing at this time of year. We had a lovely time and enjoyed ourselves very much. Thank you to Sam and to all the parent helpers:)
