Snowy Day 


Wow snow where did that come from?

Who enjoyed all the snow we had today, the children had a fun time building snowmen and sledging down the hill. The weather has defiantly changed to Winter so her is a little reminder that all children come to Nursery suitable dressed for all weather conditions with a change of clothes in their bag in case they get wet outside.

Book of the Week:- NO-BOT, the Robot with no bottom by Sue Hendra




Wow, what a change in the learning from the children this week, we have moved away from the jungle and will be learning about robots and transformers for the next couple of weeks.

We will be creating our own junk model robots so if you have any old cereal boxes, tubes, cartons and yogurt tubs please bring them in and let us recycle them by turning them into our own robot creations.

Please have a look at our planning overview to see what we will be getting up to.

Our story and song of the week will be updated once the children choose what it will be.
