A big thank you to all our parents/carers who spent time with their child in nursery today for ‘Sharing Success Day’. It was lovely seeing so many of you sharing your children’s Learning Journeys with them. This event is a marvellous way to strengthen our parent/nursery partnerships and celebrate the successes of your children.

This week our Ladybird (two year olds) class have been very busy making a winter display. We have been talking about winter with the children. We asked about the weather during winter time and the type of clothes we would wear, some of the words they used are written on the snowflakes.The adults wanted to create some wintery pictures but the children decided that they wanted to paint snowmen. The children painted their representations of a snowman using black paper and white paint to make the snowman stand out more. The children had a choice of different media to choose from so they could add different features and clothes to their snowman. The children remained focused and paid attention to detail and investigated new ways to do things for example, how different media such as material, paint and tissue paper can be used to create a picture. Using their own ideas they developed how they wanted their snowman to look.

Thank you to all the parents and their children who attended our “Messy Play” workshop this week. Together they made stretchy slime, cloud fluff corn flour, mouldable sand and explored the multiple uses of rice and spaghetti. Everyone had lots of fun whilst learning about the importance of messy play at nursery. An added bonus was that they got a pot of slime to take home!

Thank you to all the parents who attended our “Coffee Morning/Afternoon.” It was lovely to see you making new friendships, sharing ideas and thoughts on parenting whilst enjoying a hot drink and some tasty biscuits. We hold these sessions regularly throughout the year so look out for the posters for our next one and come along.

This week children and parents from our Ladybird (two year old) class went on an exciting autumn walk through Grange Park. We observed the changes to the trees in autumn, listened to the nature sounds and collected lots of leaves, sticks, acorns and conkers which we brought back to nursery to explore further next week.

The children really enjoyed creating a collaborative fireworks painting. Learning this new paint flicking technique was lots of fun and they were able to recreate their experiences of Guy Fawkes Night. The children also learnt new words to describe the noises the fireworks made such as crackle, fizz, bang, whoosh!

As part of our Diwali celebrations the children have been learning the story of “Rama and Sita” which is a traditional story told by families to their children during Diwali. Our children have been watching the story on YouTube and have learnt all about the main characters and storyline. Today they had a very special treat as one of our staff dressed up as the character Sita and retold the now familiar story to the children who were captivated to see it come to life before their eyes!!

This week the children have been learning all about the Hindu festival of light called Diwali. They have been learning about Rangoli patterns, which are traditional patterns made from coloured rice, created to welcome visitors to a home during Diwali. The children have been making their own Rangoli patterns at the nursery. They created them at the entrance to welcome parents and children to our nursery using powder paint and glitter.

This week the children have been using the natural resources they collected during our autumn walk to Grangewood Park to make a large scale collage. They included various leaves, twigs, feathers, conkers and acorns. Children have also been making their own smaller collages using the same materials
