This week in Nursery we have been learning all about Easter. We listened to the Easter story, looked at how and why Christians celebrate this religious holiday and talked about how we celebrate Easter in our homes. We also made an Easter cross during our Religion lesson and we made nests with chocolate and cornflakes to take home!
Enjoy the sunshine and have a very happy Easter.

Look at our fantastic outdoor learning environment. The children really love being outside in the garden area. Children expressed their ideas and we listened to their requests.
This week we planted flowers in our garden.
This half term’s topic is all about Spring and animal families. We are learning about farm animals and plants that grow in Spring. Look at our fantastic work and displays.
This week in Nursery we have celebrated St Patrick’s day. We have made shamrock hats, played with green resources and danced to Irish music.
We looked at the differences between us as babies and us now and we talked about what we want to be in the future.
In Maths we were number detectives. We found lots of numbers around the classroom.
It’s been a really lovely and busy week in Nursery! We have had lots of enthusiastic and lively children bursting with brilliant ideas on how to make our new Post Office area outside. We used the children’s ideas and added new resources to the post office such as post box, wrapping paper, till, money, envelopes, Christmas cards, bags and ribbons. This contributed to the children’s excitement and helped to make this time of the year so sparkly and magical. When playing inside and outside we have worked on our perseverance, resilience and determination skills.
In Nursery this week we have been reading the story ‘Stick Man’ by Julia Donaldson. We collected sticks and leaves from our garden to make our own pictures of Stick Man. Look at our fantastic work.
As part of our Collective Worship we have been creating prayers for our prayer tree. We thanked God for the food we eat, our toys and our families and we asked Him to give us love, decorations and ‘a house’ for Christmas.
