Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No! It is Nursery learning all about superheroes!  

We are learning all about superheroes this week. To kick off our learning we have been discussing what it means to be a superhero. We have come up with some adjectives to describe what a good superhero would be like. The children came up with words such as ‘kind’ and ‘strong’. We talked about how we can be like this everyday. The children then built a superhero obstacle course to test their super-strength and super-speed. We used tyres, parachutes and tunnels to create this large obstacle course.  


We are now going to recap all the sounds we have already learnt in our phonics, S,A,T,P,I and N. Alongside this, we are going to be looking closely at blending and segmenting words. This is where we sound words out and put the sounds together to make a word. This will all be done orally.  
For example, sounding out ‘c-a-t' and identifying the word as ‘cat’. Any support with this at home would be great! 


We hope you have a lovely week, 
Miss Kelly and Mrs Plimmer 
 

W.C 13th June 2022 
Welcome to a new half-term in Nursery! As always, we investigate a new enquiry question each half-term. This time, we will be investigating the question ‘What makes me shine?’, where we will be following the children’s interests and using their ideas as a vehicle for our learning. As a result, we are learning about unicorns this week, due to high demand! We have received a letter from Sparkles the Unicorn who has very kindly left us a real unicorn horn! We will together write a letter back, and we will ask lots of questions about what a unicorn can do. 


In our phonics learning, we will be learning the sound ‘n’. The children have really enjoyed learning new sounds so far and we are really impressed with their enthusiasm! 


A quick thank you! 

Thank you so much to everyone who came to our EYFS Jubilee Party. We all had a wonderful time and we know the children did too! A big thank you to our parent helpers who helped set up and tidy away – we are very grateful! 


We hope you have a lovely week, 
Miss Kelly and Mrs Plimmer 

W.C 23rd May 2022 
Hello! Welcome to a new week in Nursery. This week is a very busy one indeed. We are reading the story ‘The Enormous Watermelon’, from which we will take on the roles of different characters to recreate the story.  


It is our EYFS sports day on Tuesday 24th May in the afternoon. We are so looking forward to this and we are excited to welcome you to come and watch. 


On Friday, to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, EYFS will be having a royal garden party to celebrate. This year, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service. We are hosting a royal garden party to celebrate Her Majesty and her 70 years on the throne. There will be cake and treats for us all to share, as well as music and decorations to celebrate. 


We hope you have a lovely half-term break and we look forward to welcoming the children back after the break.  


Kind Regards, 
Miss Kelly and Mrs Plimmer

Buzz! We are learning all about bees this week! The children will be looking closely at real honeycomb pieces, exploring what it looks and feels like. We will be tasting honey on Friday when we will have toast and honey! We are also going to be investigating how bees make honey by conducting an experiment.

The children will be learning lots of new vocabulary and facts about the brilliant bee. As a class we will discuss the importance of looking after bees due to the amazing work they do. The class have already planted wildflower seeds and we will talk about why flowers are important for bees to live. 


In our phonics learning we will be learning the sound ‘p’!


We hope you have a lovely week!

Teach Rex

Last week we were lucky enough to have the wonderful Teach Rex team come into school for our EYFS and Year 1 children. We had an amazing time learning all about these incredible creatures from the past. The children were extremely brave when Jam the Tyrannousaurus Rex walked into our hall, especially because he was very big and had sharp teeth! We were also very lucky to meet two baby dinosaurs, Cosmia and Baby Jam. What a wonderful day we had!

W.C 9th May 2022 
Fee, Fi, Fo, Fum! We are reading the story ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ this week, and we will be using this as a basis for all of our learning in Nursery. We will be using instruments to tell the story, playing loudly when the giant stomps and playing fast when Jack runs away! The children will have lots of fun retelling the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and I am sure lots of children will pretend to be the big giant!   


The children will be growing broad beans in plastic water bottles, to watch the roots and shoots grow. Please send your child in with a plastic water bottle on Wednesday for us to do this. Following on from this, the children will be labelling the different parts of a plant.  

Dens!

The children were really interested in den building, so we decided to make one! We took paper, pens and stories into our den and had lots of fun!

Recently in phonics, we have started introducing sounds to the children. So far, we have learnt s and a. This week we will learn t. We appreciate any support with this at home, by looking for these sounds in your houses or looking for objects that begin with these sounds. We will be consolidating our learning of initial sounds and rhyming words continually over the next few weeks too.  


We hope you have a lovely week, 
Miss Kelly and Mrs Plimmer 

W.C 2nd May 2022 

This week, the children in Nursery will be learning all about spiders! We will be watching how a spider spins its web, and investigating questions such as ‘how many legs do spiders have?’ and ‘what do spiders eat?’. We will be singing one of our favourite nursery rhymes, ‘Incy Wincy spider’!

 
A reminder that we are a polling station on Thursday, meaning school will not be open. We apologise for the inconvenience caused. 


Have a good week, 
Miss Kelly and Mrs Plimmer 

W.C 25th April 2022 
Hello and welcome back to a new term in Nursery! We hope you all had a lovely break and we look forward to getting straight back into our exciting learning.

The enquiry question we will be investigating this half-term is ‘Who lives in our garden?’. To kick off this investigation we will be reading ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ by Eric Carle. The children will be looking after caterpillars of our very own and we will watch them over the coming weeks as they transform into butterflies. We will learn all about the lifecycle of a caterpillar and we are very excited to be able to observe this in real life!  

We are extremely excited to be having our ‘Outdoor Learning Day’ on Thursday 28th April. This is when we will be taking all of our learning outside – including our phonics and maths! The children will be outside for most of the day so please dress the children in clothes that you do not mind getting dirty – there may or may not be a slip and slide activity towards the end of the day. Please send your children in wearing a waterproof coat and appropriate shoes. The children will most likely come home a little bit dirty but the learning that will have taken place will be wonderful! We will have lots of activities, from large scale mark-making and threading to toasting marshmallows and exploring clay. We will share all the photographs on our school twitter page.  

Nursery fund: 
As we enter a new full term, we are once again asking for donations to our Nursery fund. This can be found on ParentPay. We use the money donated to buy resources that allow us to have exciting learning opportunities, just like the outdoor learning day mentioned above. This will be a donation that will cover this half-term and next, leading us to Summer. It will be £18. We thank you in advance for your generosity.  


We hope you have a great week, 
Miss Kelly and Mrs Plimmer 

W.C 4th April 2022

Wow! Mrs Plimmer and I cannot believe we are at the end of another full term. We have been having so much fun and the learning we have seen has been amazing. We look forward to next term and wish you all a restful break. 

This week, we are learning all about Easter. We will be making transient art pictures using spring time resources such as petals and leaves. We will also be making chocolate nests together as a class, using melted chocolate and cornflakes! Yum!

We have also heard rumours that the very special 'Easter Bunny' may be passing through our Nursery garden - keep a look out to see if you can spot him!

We hope you have a lovely week,

W.C 28th March 2022

This week, we will be reading the wonderful story 'Handa's Surprise!' by Eileen Browne.

This story will lead us into our learning all about the African Savannah and the animals that live there. We will read information books and use new vocabulary to describe animals such as zebras, elephants and giraffes.

The children will also be thinking about fruit and healthy foods. We are very excited as we will be making a fruit salad together, and will the children will be helping with the preparation by carefully cutting up bananas, pears and tangerines. We will be having lots of conversations about how important it is to eat healthily. 

We are excited to learn about the continent of Africa, in particular, the country Kenya, as this is where our story is set! 

In our mathematics learning, we will begin to introduce the concept of subtraction, by using physical resources to demonstrate what happens when we take away or 'subtract'. We are very passionate about introducing important vocabulary to the children and we love hearing that they are taking this vocabulary home and applying it there.

We hope you have a lovely week!

Miss Kelly and Mrs Plimmer

W.C 21st March 2022

Stomp, chomp, big roars, here come the dinosaurs! We are all becoming palaeontologists in Nursery this week! We have had a fascinating time, looking at real fossilised dinosaur poo!

The children have also found a dinosaur egg left in our classroom by a T-Rex. We were shown an amazing video of the dinosaur walking around our classroom. The children firstly found dinosaur footprints and followed them to the egg.

The children will also be conducting an experiment to make volcanoes using bicarbinate of soda and vinegar. 

We will be reading lots of books to help us learn all about these wonderful, extinct creatures. 

Please keep checking our twitter page as we will be sharing lots of exciting pictures there! 

Have a great week,

Miss Kelly and Mrs Plimmer

This week, we are learning all about the zoo! We will be learning all about all kinds of animals, using descriptive language. The children will be going on a zoo walk within our EYFS garden, finding hidden animals and discussing their characteristics.

We will discuss the importance of zoos like Chester, by teaching the children about endangered species and how vital it is to look after these special animals.  


In mathematics, we will make comparisons between objects relating to size, length, weight and capacity, using key vocabulary such as heavier, lighter, full and empty. We will begin to look at alliteration this week, where the children will be introduced to tongue twisters and consider the initial sounds in their names.  

Book Swap and Share!

Under our shelter, you may have seen our book share and swap suitcase. Please feel free to take a book home to read for yourself. We would love donations of books too, to ensure there are plenty of books for you to read. We ask for you to please return the book once you have finished. We are striving to show the children that reading is important and fun – for their adults too! We hope you enjoy this.  
Kind Regards, 
Miss Kelly and Mrs Plimmer 

W.C 7th March 2022 

There’s a rumble in the jungle! The children are learning all about the Rainforest this week! We will be using new vocabulary to describe what rainforests look, smell, feel and sound like. For example, we have described the rainforest as ‘humid’. The children will listen to the sounds of the rainforest and move like different animals.

The children will be listening to the following books, including a poetry book called ‘Rumble in the Jungle!’. 

The children have made posters to celebrate the rainforest, and many children have discussed how it is so important to save the trees.  
We look forward to seeing where this learning takes us next!

W.C 28th February 2022 


Hello everyone! This week we are celebrating World Book Day! We are so excited to celebrate this, as we believe that instilling a love of reading within each child can take the children on all kinds of adventures. We look forward to welcoming you to our ‘BookStart’ meeting on Friday morning, which will last around 45 minutes.

 
Reading is so important. We know that developing a love of reading in children from an early age will prove so useful in their later life; in fact, enjoying books and reading stories from a very early age is crucial in the development of a child. Not only does it help with their ability to understand words, but it encourages them to begin to and develop their imagination – to see things and imagine things all by themselves – and to develop their speech, it improves concentration and introduces children to new concepts and the world around them. 


To celebrate World Book Day, we will be reading the whole-school text ‘The Tin Forest’. The theme within this book surrounds the important topic of sustainability. The children in Nursery will be completing an art project using recycled materials, which we will share on Twitter and our class page. Thank you for your donations to this. The children will also be completing transient art using recycled materials, and will consider what we need to do to look after our planet.  

Pancake Day – we will also be enjoying pancakes on Tuesday to celebrate pancake day. The children will complete a tally chart, identifying who would like honey, and who would like nut-free chocolate spread on their pancake.  


I look forward to talking to you during parent’s evening slots this week to share all the wonderful things your children are doing.  
Miss Kelly 

W.C 21st February 2022 

Hello and welcome to a brand-new half-term! We hope that everyone had a lovely week. As always, we begin investigating a new enquiry question each half-term, which we use as a basis for our learning. The enquiry question we will be investigating this half-term is ‘Who lives in our world?’. 


To begin, we will be exploring the world of pirates – the children have expressed lots of interest in this topic! We will be following directions to find hidden treasure, and we will also be exploring this theme within our small world area. The children will be encouraged to build pirate ships with planks, and we are very excited to see where this goes and how their play develops.  We will also be drawing treasure maps!

W.C 20th September 2021

Welcome to a new week in Nursery. Last week, the children were superstars and we were so impressed with how well they settled into the routines of their new environment. We all had so much fun together! This week we will be learning about our families! We will share with each other who is in our family and talk about those we love. We will show that no family is the same, and this is what makes each family incredibly special! 

In our phonics learning, the children will be listening to different instruments and playing them loudly and quietly. They will also have to listen carefully to different instruments to find them in the classroom.

The mathematical nursery rhyme we will share is ‘5 cheeky monkeys’.

The children have already had a busy start to the week, with lots of learning taking place, especially outdoors.

We hope you have a lovely week!

Miss Kelly and Mrs Plimmer

Story books:

Dear Parents/Carers,

We love reading stories together in Nursery! We will now be sending home story books for you to share with your child. Each Friday we will give your child a new story book to take home to enjoy with you for the week. Please return the story book and wallet every Friday session, in order for us to change the books over in the day. Please enjoy the book at home and only bring the book back to be changed on Fridays. We will give the wallet back the same day at the end of your child’s session. Here are ways to help encourage reading:

Reading really can take you on all kinds of adventures, and we aim to foster a love of reading from the moment your child walks into our classroom. We are excited to see what adventures we go on together!

Kind regards,

Miss Kelly and Mrs Plimmer
