Happy New Year!
This half term, the children will be exploring different traditional stories. We have begun with ‘The Gingerbread Man’. The children have been acting out the story, designing their own gingerbread man and pretending to make gingerbread men in the home corner. They have thoroughly enjoyed the activities as you can see from the photos.

We would also like to welcome some new children into our nursery and are looking forward to watching them develop friendships with our current nursery children.

The children in nursery have enjoyed creating their winter plates for our classroom display. They have also been busy little elves helping Santa in his work shop.

We would like to thank George’s parents for donating a real life Santa for our grotto.

We have been looking a different shapes - circles, squares, triangles and rectangles. The children have used them to create their own pictures and sort the shapes in different ways. Please, pick out different shapes you see in the environment with your child. Shapes are all around us!

This week, in Nursery, we have been celebrating our birthdays. We discussed the ways we celebrate birthdays at home with our families. The children have made cards, wrapped presents, made paper chain decorations, laid a party table and celebrated Jaffa's birthday with chocolate cake!

We have also begun our mark making journey. We are exploring different ways to do this as you can see below.
Some of the children are already using a tripod grip (using two fingers and a thumb) to hold their pencil.

The children in nursery have enjoyed learning about and celebrating bonfire night. They have performed a firework dance, made Catherine wheels with straws and created pictures through ICT and using chalk and paint.

The children in nursery have really enjoyed performing their angel dance in the Christmas production. The dance looked beautiful and we are very proud of how well the children performed. This was their first experience of performing to an audience and they rose to the challenge. We would like to thank all the parents for their support and providing the costumes, all the children looked amazing.
