We have been taking care of our Nursery garden, removing the weeds and watering our daffodil bulbs. Everybody in Nursery has planted bulb, we are going to give them some love and watch them grow over the next few months.
Nursery’s visit to Cleadon Park Library
Bumble Bees and Grasshoppers, Butterflies and Ladybirds were very excited about their visit to the library.
We put on our coats, hats and gloves and off we went to the Library with our teachers, mums, dads and grandparents.
We listened to a super story and also had time to create a teddy bear, just like the one in the story.
On Tuesday we had some very special visitors in Nursery…Tiny Tweeties, we were all very excited!
During our wake up and shake up sessions and singing time we sing lots of Tiny Tweety songs and move to the music with actions.
We sang lots hello songs, played instruments, puppets, calm down songs to end our session.
Each class, from nursery to Year 6, has been involved in planting trees delivered by the Woodland Trust. We’ve planted them in our yard, in the far field and around the car park. It has been a wonderful opportunity for everyone to work as part of a team and to help the environment. Toffee even joined some of the children. Can you spot him?
We can’t wait to see the trees grow!
In Nursery we have been learning the Nursery rhyme ‘Dingle Dangle Scarecrow’.
During this time we learned about why we use Scarecrows and designed our own out of different shapes! Then the children thought it would be great fun to build their own scarecrows in the garden.
They selected materials that they could use including sticks, different paper and clothes. The children worked as a team to build the scarecrows and they are now doing a wonderful job of protecting our nursery!
It was lovely to see so many children supporting our Non-Uniform Day for Children in Need. The children in Nursery looked amazing!
Thank you for all of your donations!
Today in Nursery we have been busy baking red poppy biscuits for Remembrance Day.
Once we had washed our hands we were ready to bake.
We gathered our ingredients – flour, sugar, butter and red food colouring. Weighed out the amounts and took turns to mix the ingredients in the bowl.
Next we rolled out the biscuit dough, cut the biscuit shape and our teachers put them into the oven, as the oven is very hot.
When they were cooked and cooked we added chocolate buttons to finish our poppy biscuits.
This week in Nursery the children had a great time preparing for Halloween. We designed and carved pumpkin lanterns, made our own potions and even transformed into witches and wizards.
Later in the week we then celebrated Bonfire night! The children made their own edible ‘sparklers’ using bread sticks and chocolate. They were yummy!
And for our big finale… we made our own fireworks by experimenting with a bottle of coke and some soft mints! See what happened when we added them together!
