Nursery Snow Day Ideas

Hello to all our nursery children and families,

I hope you are all keeping warm, safe and well during this cold, snowy time.

Here are a few ideas for activities you might want to try while our nursery is closed…

Outside (if it is safe)

Make snow creatures (as a change from snow men!)

Have snow ball throwing challenges (like how far can you throw, make a target to hit, win points)

Make a snow obstacle course

Treasure Hunt – hide a toy for children to find

Write or draw in the snow with sticks


As it is world book day, enjoy some stories together, there are online stories and activities on the website below…

The Big Little Book Corner

You could still dress up as your favourite character and maybe act out your favourite story using funny voices!

Create a snowy scene in a shoebox from recycled materials

Make up your own stories with a snow theme

Create a cosy indoor story den

Have fun and enjoy some time to play together!

Looking forward to hearing all about your snow days,

Miss Watson

Musicians in the Nursery!

Connor and Stuart our school musicians are visiting the nursery twice a week in the morning on Mondays and Wednesdays and in the afternoon  on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We are having fun experimenting with sounds and movement, exploring rhythm and rhyme, singing songs we know and making up some of our own!

This week in nursery

Thank you to everyone who attended parents evenings this week. It was lovely to see you all and have your valuable input into you child’s learning and development.

Could we please request that all paperwork be returned to the nursery by Friday 13th October.

October Holiday – week beginning 16th October including Monday 23nd October (an Inservice day for staff). We look forward to seeing everyone back at nursery on Tuesday 24th October.

Thanks to everyone who supported the Book Fair this week – it was a huge success and we will use some of the commission to extend and enhance our story sack collection!

Here is a little summary of some of our learning this week!

Book Fair next week

We are running a Scholastic Book Fair on Wednesday 4 October until Friday 6 October .

The Book Fair will be open to parents from 9-9.30 each morning and 2.45 -3.45 at the end of the day (12.20 until 1pm on Friday).

The Fair will also open early on Friday morning at 8.30 to allow nursery parents to visit

This year’s Fair coincides with our Parent’s Evenings on Tuesday 3 October and Wednesday 4 October. It would be fantastic if we could have the Book Fair open for parents on both evenings. In order to facilitate this we need your help! If you are able to volunteer your time for part or all of an evening please leave your details with the school office and Mrs Dixon will contact you.

Our previous Book Fairs have generated at least 50% commission of the total monies raised which we have used to provide books for our  library, story sacks in nursery and group readers for literacy so your support really does help!
