WEEK 3 (14th-18th September 2020)

This week we began our key person "chatty times" where we shared our "all about me" bags, it was lovely hearing all about the children's favourite things. 

Some children had a go at making a picture of their face, looking carefully at eye and hair colour. 

Outside we set up a car garage and the children enjoyed pretending to fix the cars using real tools, as well as trying to create our own obstacle courses.

On our welly walk this week, we used the children's interest in creating potions and went to the woods to collect some exciting ingredients to make our magic potions, we added some herbs and spices and lemons and limes and talked about what our potions would do- we had everything from turning people into frogs, to making people happy. 

We now have access to tapestry and will be beginning to upload observations over the next week so keep checking the Tapestry app. 

WEEK 2 (7th-11th September 2020)

We have had a fantastic week in Nursery and the children are settling well and enjoying exploring the classroom. 

This week we have explored colour mixing with handprint painting, made our own playdough, written some stories together, played in our HUGE play tunnel and spotted minibeasts on our (very wet) welly walk!
Next week we will be spending our key person time talking about our "All about me" bags and getting to know the class and their interests a little better.

We are looking forward to a fun packed year as part of Wigton Infant School.

The Nursery classroom is ready and we are excited to be welcoming children back this week.

Here is a sneak peak of the new layout...

Our new starters will have received our "Welcome to Nursery" booklet. This includes information on what to bring to Nursery, Nursery hours, what learning might look like in Nursery and lots of other important information.
