Living, Learning, Laughing

Spring 1

We've had so much fun in Nursery this half-term!

During this half-term the children have continued to explore the different areas of the Nursery. The children have started to make friendships with their peers and have enjoyed carrying out exciting activities in the Nursery. We've been looking at Bears and the children have been busy creating their own bears using different media such as play dough, junk modelling and lots more! The children have also enjoyed listening different bear stories such as, Peace At Last, Whatever Next and We Going on a Bear Hunt. 

Exploring our Nursery garden

The children have been exploring our Nursery garden in all weathers. The children were very excited to find lots of frozen natural objects such as leaves, twigs, sticks and stones in our builder's tray.  


Our school dog

The children invited our school dog, Chrissie to our Nursery. Chrissie loves playing on our school field and the children have enjoyed watching her run and play with her favourite ball. 

Our trip to Beavers Library

We visited our local Beavers Library and the children enjoyed looking at the different books.  The children were very excited to choose books to take home. The librarian read The Very Hungry Caterpillar story to the children and sang some nursery rhymes.
A big thank you to the parents who helped on the trip.

Sharing stories in different languages

Our parents were invited to Nursery to share simple stories in their own language. The children listened and danced to traditional music and ate yummy food bought in by the parents.

Thank you parents for coming to Nursery and sharing stories, the children loved it!



Chinese New Year

For Chinese New Year we made vegetable noodles in Nursery. The children helped to cut the peppers, courgettes, tomatoes and mushrooms and did a brilliant job!



The children have been busy looking after our big bear in our role play area. We've had fun making and eating honey and marmalade sandwiches, yummy porridge and bear biscuits. The children went on a bear hunt adventure to look for the missing bear, and found him hiding in the cave. There was also lots of excitement when the children bought teddy bears from home and had a lovely teddy bear's picnic in Nursery.



Autumn 2 

The children have now settled into Nursery routines well and are separating from their parents with growing confidence. They are happily coming into the Nursery, with big smiles! A big thank you to our parents for their continued support and understanding throughout the settling in process.  

During this half-term the children have been exploring the different areas of the Nursery independently and have started to develop friendships with their peers. The children have been carrying out engaging, fun and interactive activities in the Nursery.  In our canopy, the children have loved playing in the water trays, looked at picture books in the reading area and used buckets and spades in our large sandpit. We have been looking at the story, Owl Babies and the children have been keen to look after the baby owls in our role play area. They have also used different media to create their own owls.

Look at us in Nursery!

For STEM week the children looked at different arctic animals. They enjoyed exploring the iced animals and created bears and penguins in the shaving foam. The children looked for the hidden arctic animals in the oats and drew different animals using chalk, pens, crayons and paint.


Hounslow Adult and Community Education were able to provide a free course, Early Years-Playing with Numbers to our parents. Parents who attended the 5-week course found it useful and interesting. Ezra's mum said, 'Thank you, I learnt a lot and will be playing different number games with my daughter'.   


In order to develop the children's fine motor skills, the Nursery team have planned lots of mark making activities in both the indoor and outdoor area. The children enjoyed mark making in the ice using natural objects and used the patterned wheels to create large colourful prints. The children also carried out different activities at our fine motor station using their 'funky fingers'.   


We have been looking at the Owl Babies story. The children made trees for the owls using different sized sponges, created owls using paper plates and made yummy chocolate nests to eat. 


We love Forest School! We have started our Forest School sessions with the children. The children are learning how to help each other get ready and have used our amazing outdoor area to look for natural objects. During our first Forest School session, the children found sticks, twigs and leaves for the baby owls nests. These natural objects were taken to our role-play area by the children.   


For Children In Need the children decorated fairy cakes and loved their spotty cakes! We helped to raise lots of money by selling cakes. Thank you parents for your kind donations. 


The children looked amazing during our Christmas song performance. They tried really hard with their singing and actions to the Christmas songs. Thank you parents for attending and cheering the children along!

To raise money for Save the Children, the children wore their Christmas jumpers. Thank you parents for donating money to a very special charity. 

Autumn 1 

The Nursery team have been very busy settling the children into their new environment. A lovely family photograph was taken during the home visit, which has helped the children with the settling in process, as children have been able to see members of their family in the photograph displayed in the Nursery.

During this half-term the children have been introduced to the different areas of learning and staff are continuing to model how to use each area. For example, using visuals to support children wearing an apron before painting a picture and taking shoes off before exploring the sandpit in the Nursery and canopy.

We've been busy in Nursery!

Nursery had lots of fun exploring paint this half-term. The children have enjoyed creating colourful prints using different media such as sponges and transport vehicles. 






Dance Umbrella came to Nursery and delivered a free movement session. The children enjoyed dancing to music, moving to different sounds and loved playing with the big parachute. 



In celebration of Diwali, we invited parents to the Nursery to help the children make chapati's. The children wore their party clothes, had fun cooking, ate traditional food and danced to Hindi and Punjabi songs. A big thank you to the parents who came to Nursery.
