Question of the day ????

In nursery we have been learning about different parts of the day. Children’s voice is very important to us at St.Mary’s. We recently asked some of the children if they liked the dark. Here are some of their responses:

No but my sister does. I have a mushroom light on. I’m scared of monsters.

I like the dark. I like riding my bike at night – it has a light.

No Violet doesn’t like the dark!

Yes because its dark at Christmas and Santa comes to say hi!

No! I hear stomping sounds in the night!

I like going out in the dark because I get to use a torch.

Don’t like the dark it makes me scared.

George P
No I like the morning

I like to go out in the dark at night time. You might see a wolf!

George H
I like the dark because its dark!

I go out in the dark to see my Nana.

Our Nursery







Look at all the fantastic areas set up for the children to investigate and explore.   This week we are learning:

  • to say forward and backward number sequences
  • to recognise numerals
  • about nocturnal animals
  • about time and when different events happen in a day eg. morning and evening.

We are also exploring mark making and sensory experiences




Mango and rhubarb tasting

Our question of the week was

Have you tried mango before?

There was a mix of some children who had and some who had not. We decided to buy some mango to let the children have a taste.

We then found some rhubarb in our nursery garden. We stewed the rhubarb and then made a rhubarb crumble to try at snack time.

It was great hearing the childrens voice whether they liked or disliked the fruits. By the look of some of their faces in these photos you could guess what they thought!
