Ducklings enjoying their running on the track.

Just one cornetto! Ice cream, sprinkles and sauce in Ducklings ice cream parlour. Super conversations, great serving and scooping and of course a very British queue!

Ducklings and Woodpeckers got together this morning to share their love of reading.

Ducklings have had such a fun day working with Ringmaster Angus. We watched Angus perform and then it was Ducklings turn to balance, juggle, learn how to make the ribbons move and use flower sticks. We then performed our  very own circus show to our families.

This week Duckling class  have been learning all about 2-d shapes. We went on a shape hunt outside and this is what we found…

I think Mrs Palmer will be so impressed with Ducklings class this week. We went to the hall to do yoga, we listened  and followed  the instructions on how to do different yoga moves.

We made cakes and then decorated them to celebrate children in need. We had a Pudsey bear party.

Our Very Busy Winter Term

This term in Nursery, we have been very busy reading stories about Supertato and the evil pea.

We have also been learning all about different types of vegetables. The children decided to make soup for their parents at stay and play. We prepared and cut the vegetables into small pieces. We served soup to our mums and dads at stay and play.

Towards the end of term, we were all very excited as it was snowing! The children in nursery were so excited to play in the snow, we made snow angels and snow men.

 Costa Coffee Visit

Ducklings class have been playing in  the Costa roleplay area in Robins class. The children really enjoyed making pretend hot chocolates for all their friends. We decided that we would really like to visit Costa to buy a real hot chocolate.

On Tuesday 16th  and  Wednesday 17th January Duckling class visited Costa, the children had to order and pay for their own drink and they even had to tidy up their cups when they had finished as well.

Nursery Christmas Stay & Play Session – Friday 8th December

On Friday 8th December, Nursery held it’s Christmas Stay & Play session where parents were invited into the nursery to work and play with their children. We had lots of fun making sparkly Christmas tree decorations, glittery cards and we even got to make a sticky sweet snowman biscuit.
