Spring Term 4

February - March




Week 1    



The children at nursery have been busy planting their seeds. The children could choose to plant a bean or sunflower seed. We are going to care for our seeds and make sure they get lots of natural light and water. I wonder which seed your child chose?

This week there have been some very snowy weather conditions. The children in nursery enjoyed making footprints, building snowmen and exploring the snow. ❄️☃️❄️

World Book Day - Thursday 1st March (Celebrated on Friday 9th March due to the snow).


All the children dressed up for World Book Day. We had lots of different characters in nursery for the day including Elsa, Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks, Spiderman, Bat-girl, Peter Pan, Dorothy, Thor and Captain America. The nursery staff joined in the fun and dressed up as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Happy World Book day everyone 🌍📕🌎

Week 2 and 3



Spring time is all about new life and at nursery we have experienced new life first hand. Farmer Tom delivered an incubator to nursery with 10 eggs inside. We kept the eggs warm and we had 6 healthy chicks hatch. The children and their families have really enjoyed this experience and have produced some lovely work. Have a look at our wonderful display in nursery.

This week we have been busy creating our Easter cards, making Easter head bands and exploring lots of different Easter activities. Our families helped us to make some fantastic Easter hats and we put on an Easter parade for our parents. 


Happy Easter everyone!!
