Welcome to Nursery

We are part of the Foundation Stage. Our teachers are Mrs Kennedy and Mrs Horsman and our Nursery Nurses are Mrs Cassidy, Miss Thompson and Miss Matthews. In our Nursery we love learning new things! We love to get busy in the different areas of learning. We are happy in our Nursery and we are all good friends! We like to impress our teachers by trying our best and by being independent learners. We have lots of nice things planned this year so please keep checking our website and newsletters to find out more. Thank you for visiting our page.

Feeding the Birds
Celebrating the 40th Birthday of the nursery

 

Rhyme and number time.

Creating ‘5 little ducks went swimming one day’ for our rhyme and number of the week focus.  The children were looking at colours, feeling different textures and singing the rhyme as they worked together.

Fire Engine Visit.

The fire fighters from Thornaby fire station came into school to talk to the children in Foundation Stage about how important is is to stay safe around fire.

The children had the opportunity to listen to a fire safety talk, sit inside the fire engine and have a go at the water hose.

The children showed their understanding by talking about fire safety rules on Bonfire night.

Thank you to all of the fire fighters who visited our school.  It was a memorable visit for all of the children.

Magical Moments in the Snow!

We took the opportunity to play outside in the snow.  We were just writing our letters to Santa, when we looked out of the window and it was snowing!!

The Chocolate Muffin Tree By Nursery!

We were inspired by the Art work of Jackson Pollock and loved his ‘Chocolate Muffin Tree’ painting.  So, we decided to make our own version and we think it looks amazing!

Dinosaur adventures
The children are loving our topic all about dinosaurs!
They have been making paper plate stegosaurus, with spikes on their back. The children had to decide whether to give their dinosaurs’ long legs or short legs, long neck or short neck or long tail or short tail.

The children tasted broccoli! We found out that some dinosaurs only ate plants and they love trees!

The children are enjoying bringing in their dinosaurs books and toys from home to share with their friends and teachers

Chinese New Year
Foundation Stage have celebrated ‘Chinese new year’.  Children in nursery and reception celebrated the year of the monkey by making monkey masks, tasting Chinese noodles, setting of fireworks on the iPad and making a dragon dance! All of the children and adults had a great time and we learned lots about a different culture.

MAKING SPACE ROCKETS IN NURSERY!

The children have been enjoying learning all about space.  We have shared the story of Whatever Next and had lots of fun pretending to fly to the moon in our movement and gymnastics sessions.  The children have been making rockets from recycled materials and are very proud of their models!
