Mrs Horsburgh’s Symmetry Challenge

We love using mirrors in nursery to explore reflections, patterns and symmetry.

Challenge – Can you have fun using a mirror in your house to explore making a mirror image? Could you hold items up against it and see what you see? A fun idea is (if your grown ups let you!) to take a mirror and lie it down on the ground in doors or outside and see what you can see reflected in it.

Daily Challenge – When have you been positive today?

Over the course of this year we have worked hard to embed the school values of curiosity, positivity, success and respect within the nursery. These are values that we look for all of our children to value from age 3 to age 13.

Positive – When were you positive today? Maybe you tried something that you find hard or you did something to make yourself and others feel positive.

Miss Rogerson’s Challenge – Have a look through old photo’s in photo albums or even on a phone. Who is in your family? 
Once you have had a look at photos and had a chat about who is all in your family make a family tree. 


You will need;

Paper, scissors, glue, and photo’s (or you can draw your family) 


Miss Rogerson says “Here is a picture of me when I was little with my sister Rachel. My tree will need lots of branches as I have a big extended family! Is your family a big family or a small one? Families come in all shapes and sizes and everyone’s family tree will look different.”

Fairy Houses

We received these very interesting pictures from one of our children.

Her mummy wrote “We wanted to show you guys that the grass, cress and pea shoots have sprouted. We are amazed at how quickly they have grown!! We will need to give them a little haircut soon.”

They look amazing!
