Cohort 2023-2024

Term 1

Week 4


This week we have been learning about colours and this has included sorting colourful bears and listening to stories such as Brown Bear, Brown Bear and The Colour Monster. Using the Colour Monster story, we have thought about different feelings and the colours they relate too as well as getting creative and making Colour Monster group collages! 


We have also learnt about farms this week and what you might find on the farm from animals to crops and vegetables. We learnt that some vegetables grown in the ground and others on plants and then used these vegetables to make a delicious soup to share at snack time! We mustn't forget about the edible farm either, which we had lots of fun playing with!  

Our First Two Weeks!


We have had so much fun starting Nursery. It has been great to meet lots of new children and to explore the Nursery environment. We have really love playing outside especially scooping the mud and pouring the water to make some delicious dishes in the mud kitchen! We have become master builders and used our skills to make lots of different balance paths and obstacle courses. Inside, we have enjoyed craft activities such as finger painting and junk modelling and messy activities like spaghetti and gellibaf!
