New outdoor equipment for the Nursery

Nursery New Outdoor Equipment on PhotoPeach

Our nursery have been developing the outdoor area helped by funding from a lottery grant and a generous donation from the parent council. The existing area was extended. This gave us a larger playing area and grass. We then purchased some exciting new equipment. The parents and the children were involved in this process. We are looking forward to the living willow tunnel grow in the spring which will start a whole new adventure!


Autumn Detectives! on PhotoPeach
We went to the ‘forest’ to look for signs of Autumn. We were excellent ‘Autumn Detectives’ finding leaves, pine cones and branches. Also toy squirrels were hidden in the trees and we had to find them.

“There’s a shark in the park!!” on PhotoPeach

“Timothy Pope, Timothy Pope is looking through his telescope. He looks at the sky. He looks at the ground. He looks left and right. He looks all around.” The nursery children this week have been enjoying the story ‘Shark In the Park’ by Nick Sharratt. Is there a shark in the park? The nursery children went outside to the school playground with their telescopes for a look!!

Harvest Time In the Nursery on PhotoPeach

For our Harvest theme the children dug up the vegetables in the nursery garden. The children chopped the potatoes, carrots and onions to make soup for snack. We have also been grinding wheat to make flour, having fun playing with the toy combine harvesters and tractors and we baked bread rolls for snack too.


Nursery – Elmer on PhotoPeach
In the Nursery we have been reading Elmer stories. We made a lovely frieze of the Elmer’s Day Parade and when we read Elmer and the Lost Teddy we brought our favourite teddies.


Bookbug Pirates on PhotoPeach
We had a pirate theme in the Nursery for the launch of the ‘Bookbug Pirate’ pack. The children enjoyed pirate small world, stories and they made a pirate hat. At the end of the week our 3 year olds were given their Bookbug Pirate Pack.
