The children had an absolutely magical visit from Kirsten from Debutots. They were spell bound by the magical games and music that she introduced them too. Their theme was Chinese New Year and they loved dancing with beautiful silk scarves to traditional Chinese music and moving their bodies in new and creative ways. They were then introduced to the story of the grumpy Jade Emperor and were fascinated with how the 4 dragons saved the people of China from drought by turning themselves into the 4 rivers of China.

What a great start to our weekly Read Together! It was lovely to see so many parents getting involved with their children and enjoying lots of different stories. We will be running Read Together sessions every Thursday at 8.30am and 12.15pm…. come on in and share a book with your little one for 10 minutes before you start your busy day. We look forward to seeing you soon!
As well as practising for their upcoming Christmas production, the children have been exploring the world of music and sound this week. They have been engaged in using a variety of different instruments and learning how to play them in different ways e.g. fast, slow, loud and quiet. They have also been learning how to copy and make up their own rhythms and beats. The children in Nursery have loved using the Listening Station too! They have been listening to a range of music and stories on the headphones and discovering how to adjust the sound and change the track. […]
The Nursery children were very lucky to have been involved in a fabulous Playdough workshop delivered by the Creation Station! The children were encouraged to imagine lots of weird and wonderful animals and use lots of language to share their ideas. They then went on to mix different coloured playdough to create new and exciting colours! They used these new colours to create some spectacular animals, adding googly eyes and feathers to enhance their fantastic beasts. There was lots of fun had by everyone.
Wow!! What fun we had with all of our grown ups in Nursery! We explored lots of activities based around our 5 senses. The children loved sharing their learning with everyone and took great pride in showing their grown ups all of the wonderful things they have been learning this half term. We explored Halloween pumpkins, strawberry and lemon scented playdough, icy blue water, smell pots and our very special light box. We hoped you enjoyed it as much as we did!! Looking forward to seeing you all again soon!
