    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.
