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

Inside

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

Nursery closed pm today

Apologies to everyone for the late notice and inconvenience but we have had to make the decision to close the nursery this afternoon due to flooding from plumbing.
We hope to be open again tomorrow. Please watch here for further information or phone the school in the morning.
Thank you.

Christmas Jumper Day Friday 15th December


On Friday 15 December we’re inviting all pupils to take part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.

The whole school and nursery will be taking part, with everyone getting the chance to show the world their silly side by wearing their favourite festive knits for the day.

We’re asking pupils to make a £1 donation, or whatever they can give, to help save children’s lives around the world.

The money they raise will help Save the Children give the world’s forgotten children a brighter future. It could help bring essentials like healthcare, education, protection and food to the millions of children around the world who are missing out on the most basic support.

And you won’t need to splash out on snazzy new sweaters to join in the fun – simply decorate an old woolly to create your own crafty masterpiece, or wear something festive.

We’d really appreciate your help to make Christmas Jumper Day a huge success.

With your support we’re looking forward to a woolly great day!

Nursery Activities

Our next groups of children will be starting Nature Nurture next week with Nikki and Mrs Dixon .Thanks to parents who volunteered to join us we will see you on Monday !

On Tuesday 31 October we will be doing  lots of Halloween activities and children can come dressed up if they wish .Please could everyone bring an apple for dooking.

At Parent’s Evening the teachers gave out parental consent and photograph permission forms to all parents  whose children were with us last session  . It would be appreciated if these could be returned as soon as possible . Extra copies will be available at the door if you need them .
