We have had a wonderful year in Nursery and we have enjoyed lots of adventures together. It has been a pleasure to share the experiences with the children and watch them on their learning journey.The children have worked really hard and made lots of progress as a result. We wish all of our older children who are moving into Reception good luck and we look forward to seeing our younger children and new starters in September. The Nursery team would like to say a big thank you for our gifts and we wish you a safe and pleasant Summer.

End of Term
At the beginning of our last week, before we break for holidays we are focusing on co-operation and working together. The children will be encouraged to share, take turns, work collaboratively with their peers. This is a skill we promote all the time in nursery and it was SUPER to see it happening all over the nursery today. Well done
Phew! What a busy week!
The children having been talking about special times at home and within Nursery. This week we talked about having a party to celebrate special times. We had a party to celebrate the end of our year in Nursery. We had party games, dancing and party food. We enjoyed eating sandwiches with home made jam, crisps, cakes and popcorn....... delicious!
Continuing with our interest in butterflies we have been talking about symmetry and symmetrical patterns. We have been painting symmetrical butterflies and we also hunted for ladybirds in the outdoor area which had symmetrical patterns on their hard wings.
We also linked our shape, space and measure activity to the world cup as lots of people were interested in this. We ordered Russian dolls, England flags and footballs and we all agree that England tried very hard and should be proud of themselves.
Following the interests of the children we have gone cow mad this week! We have found out where milk comes from and how we milk a cow. Can you remember how many stomachs a cow has?
We have made butter from cream, milked Daisy The Cow, made cow paper plates, counted cow spots, counted cows in fields and we even a ate cow biscuits!

Thank you to all the grown ups who came along to help us enjoy Sports Day. It was great fun and the sun shone!
It is National Sports Week this week (25-29 June 2018) - National School Sport Week encourages pupils to be more active.
In preparation for our Sports Day on Thursday we have been using the 'Supermovers' website on the BBC. It has lots of good ideas for making the whole family ACTIVE. Why not have a look and join in?www.bbc.co.uk/sport/supermovers

Our Ladybird Challenge
Following the interests of the children we have been continuing to look at insects this week. We read What The Ladybird Heard by Julia Donaldson and then the children were set a challenge to create a ladybird. They made some super ladybirds. We have also painted pebble ladybirds and found out super ladybird facts. Can you remember a ladybird fact?
Our Make A Caterpillar Challenge
Well done everyone who made a caterpillar independently.
Making Trees For The Campsite
