Getting Ready for Nursery

Our Favourite Five Books This Term are ...


Chinese New Year 

This week in nursery we have been looking at how the Chinese new year is celebrated, We have created dragons, drums and even wrote "happy New Year" in Chinese. We recreated a dragon dance and looked at various different homes such as palaces.



As part of our mental health week we are starting our day playing with dough to music, other activities to encourage mindfulness include meaningful stories, lots of chatting and team games, bubbles and bath bombs, colouring and yoga with lots of outside time too.



New Outside Toys 

Being Scientists 

Looking at what happens to gingerbread persons as we immerse them in milk, soapy water, vinegar and vegetable oil. Lots of opportunity for language, questions and discussion.
