What a busy week! We have ran everyday in the Rainbow run! On Friday we had a special Rainbow breakfast to end our week, as well as our usual fun in Nursery! Happy Half term everyone !

We have talked about what makes us happy and how we can make others happy.

We read the story about The Gingerbread Man and we made Gingerbread man biscuits for our snack. We also read another of our favourite stories Nosey Norman who could smell lots of things! We went into our sensory garden and had a smell of all our herbs and flowers. we have had another fun filled week!

What a busy few weeks in Butterfly class! We have welcomed new friends into our group, we have celebrated Earth Day. We printed 100 handprints, which was very messy and good fun, in aid of Captain Tom's birthday. We have also planted sunflowers and we are watching them grow!

The last 2 weeks have been very 'egg'citing. We visited our hens and collected their eggs. One day there were 10 eggs!!! We love to visit them. We then made egg and cress sandwiches, we grew the cress ourselves. The bit we loved the most was rolling our eggs down different sized hills. Some hills made the eggs roll fast some were much slower. 

 This we  enjoyed the story Pass the Jam Jim! So we decided to make some jam tarts, which tasted yummy!

We also decorated biscuits for Red Nose day

We welcomed all our friends back to Nursery this week! We enjoyed playing outside this week rolling, jumping,climbing and balancing. We enjoyed mark making with the chalk, painting with water and having lots of fun!

Thank you to everyone who joined us on-line for Story and Rhyme time. Butterfly Class have engaged in mark making, lots of constructing and small world play this week. We look forward to having all our friends back next week!

We have made pancakes, made pizzas and made Jam sandwiches this week and they were all delicious! We practised our fine motor skills by mixing,stirring,pouring,sprinkling and spreading the ingredients. We have enjoyed the sensory den and lots of water play this week. We have been pleased to see our friends at our on-line story and rhyme sessions!

Story and singing time has continued this week at 10am and 2pm for The Butterfly Group! We have had lots of fun in the snow this week, we have celebrated Chinese New Year by tasting Chinese food. We have explored all areas of our Nursery and had lots of fun!

This week we have continued our on-line learning for the Butterfly group. We have story and singing at 10am and 2pm every day. This week we also have been thinking about Childrens Mental Health and how to stay happy.Parents have sent photos in for us to display to show us what their children are doing at home.

This week we have been Bird watching. Robins, sparrows,blackbirds and pigeons came to visit our garden. We went to see the hens and Mrs O'neill went into the hen house and fed the hens porridge. She found 3 eggs too! We made bird feeders and put them on the trees for the birds to peck. We also made bird handprints on our window which was good fun! Have a look at our new sensory den, it is a lovely calm place for the children to sit and explore. We have continued with our online story and singing time this week and have had our lovely Butterflies join us from home. We have shared lots of our favourite stories and rhymes each day.

Welcome back!

 Happy New Year 2021.

Over the last 2 weeks we have welcomed back a few Butterflies into our classroom, who have been joined on- line at  10am every morning by our home learning children, so we can sing together as a group.  Then again at 2pm everyday we meet on- line for story time with Miss Hayden!

As the weather has been snowy, We have made snow pictures in school using white paint, cottonwool and silver glitter.

We practised our cutting skills by making lots of snowflakes.

At singing time we played musical instruments when marching to The Grand Old Duke of York!
