  • Chicks!

    Published 02/04/19, by Charlotte Jackson

    Wow what an amazing few weeks we have had in nursery! We have been lucky enough to have chicks in our class for the last two weeks. We had ten eggs and we watched as all ten eggs hatched. We have had great fun watching them grow and change and we were very sad to see them leave.

  • Goldilocks in Nursery

    Published 14/10/18, by Charlotte Jackson

    We have had a very exciting week in nursery. On Monday we came into school to find that someone had been into our classroom, eaten all our porridge and broken a chair. Lucky it was only Goldilocks! We have been very busy reading the story of Goldilocks and the three bears, acting out the story and comparing different sized objects around the classroom.

  • End of Year Party

    Published 18/07/18, by Admin

    What a great year nursery have had - they have enjoyed finding out about & learning lots of new things. The year ended with a pool party - the children made their own jam sandwiches and created their own ice cream. Everyone had fun splashing in the paddling pool and the children had a carpet picnic and played party games. The party ended with pass the parcel - the prize was a new bird house from Mrs Beard to go up in the EY garden. Mrs Beard will be sad to say good-bye to Nursery and Roebuck school, but sends best wishes to all the children, families and staff she has worked with.

  • Monet's Waterlily Pond

    Published 06/06/18, by Admin

    For Arts Week (the last week before half term), we looked at Monet's Waterlily Pond picture. The children enjoyed finding out about Claude Monet and his paintings. We read the story about Katie visiting (and jumping into) this picture - a story by James Mayhew. They counted and recorded numbers hidden underneath lilies and made lily tea lights. The children created  sounds of the items in Monet's painting (running water, footsteps on the bridge, a croaking frog) and drew a picture of the pond. They experimented with chalks to blend the blue and green shades of the water, painted a lily pad and attached a raised bridge to their painting.

  • Good-bye to our chicks

    Published 29/04/18, by Admin

    We have thoroughly enjoyed having chicks in our class for the first two weeks of term and seeing them hatch out of their eggs, then grow and develop. The last girl chick to hatch that had a poorly leg (and had to return to the farm a week early), recovered and is well now. Our other 8 chicks joined her back at the farm this Friday.  We will miss the chicks but have learnt so much about them and have very happy memories of our 'living eggs'. We have all made a booklet about this experience to remember the chicks by and Mrs Beard took photos of us holding the chicks for anyone in the school who wanted one.

  • Chicks galore!

    Published 19/04/18, by Admin

    What an exciting week nursery children are having. On Wednesday morning they saw one chick hatch. Then when they came into class on Thursday there were now 8 chicks hatched in total. Lots of cheeping from the chicks and cheery nursery childrens voices could be heard all day in nursery,  as the children watched and learnt about the chicks. One more egg needed help hatching on Thursday and is a bit poorly... Mrs Beard phoned the farmer and we were told to wait and see how it gets on overnight. So only one egg has not hatched at the moment.

    The children have counted the eggs and practised writing numbers 1 - 10; They have counted how many chicks have hatched altogether - how many are boys & how many are girls; they have been choosing a name for the first chick; they have prepared the brooder box and moved the fluffy chicks across to their new home; they have read stories about hens and chicks, sung chick songs and even learnt the chicken dance. It's been a very busy week so far!

  • Hatching Day

    Published 18/04/18, by Admin

    This morning there were still 10 eggs in the incubator when we arrived in Nursery...

    But during the morning the children got to see the first chick hatch out of it's egg! It took a long time to peck it's way out of it's shell, but finally the little yellow (boy) chick flopped out, exhausted after all his hard work. He was very sleepy and wet all over. During the morning he slept, woke up and strutted around cheeping, then slept again. He slowly started to dry off and fluff up. Nursery children now have the job of deciding on a name for this first chick.

    In the afternoon, more chicks began to hatch - second was a brown girl chick and Willow class got to see the third chick hatch (another yellow, boy chick).  Other classes also visited too during the afternoon, hoping to see  more chicks hatch...

    How many chicks will nursery class find in the incubator when they arrive tomorrow morning?
