ICE CREAMS AT DESIRE - Nursery enjoyed tasty ice creams at Desire. An end of year treat from Mr Platt.



Our Ducklings

Nursery have really enjoyed learning about life cycles and have been so lucky to watch five little ducklings hatch.  The eggs kept warm in an incubator and then the ducklings stayed in a large cage.  Every day we cleaned their cage and gave them fresh food and water.  We all held them and even watched them play in water and run around the classroom.  They are now going back to the farm to be with their Mummy and Daddy. 

Today we enjoyed a music session with 'Druhm'.  We each had a space hopper and holder with a set of drumsticks.  We were taught rhythm and how to follow a sequence.  We needed really good listening skills too.  It was so much fun and look how much we were concentrating.

This week we have been enjoying lots of activities for Easter.  We have learnt about Easter symbols, particularly how a cross represents Jesus dying to save us.  However we also learnt that Easter Sunday was a happy day because Jesus came alive again.  We made crosses on our Easter cards using 'scrunched' up tissue paper.  We baked Easter cakes, made Easter bonnets and we were very lucky because the Easter Bunny came to see us.


This week we celebrated Pancake Day.  We made pancake batter and each 'tossed/flipped' a pancake.  We thought this was very funny.  We then chose what topping we would like on the pancake before we ate it.  They were delicious.  We completed a pictogram graph to see which was the favourite topping.  We also read the books 'The Big Pancake' which is similar to The Gingerbread Man and Mr Wolf's Pancakes which had a few familiar characters in.

During R.E. we learnt about how Mary and Joseph travelled on a donkey to Bethlehem.  Baby Jesus was born there in a stable.  Shepherds and 3 Kings came to visit him.  Christmas Day is Jesus' birthday.  We performed a very special Christmas Nativity for our families, telling the story and singing lots of Christmas songs.  We all dressed up in special angel costumes.

We have had a wonderful time in Nursery leading up to Christmas with lots and lots of fun activities.  Here are just a few of them.  We made Snowman Christmas cards, we went to the post office to post letters to Father Christmas, he then came to visit us with a present, we made a Christmas bauble, had Christmas dinner, enjoyed a Christmas party, sang a special carol concert, decorated a Christmas tree with our own baubles, took turns to take the Posada box home, made a funny calendar to sell at the PTA fair, baked a Christmas tree biscuit, went to see 'Wish' at the cinema, watched the pantomime 'Gnome Alone' and had a relaxing slumber afternoon with hot chocolate.   Phew!!!!! We are so tired now.


After an interesting visit to school, from Mrs Solanki, the nursery children learnt all about the Hindu Festival, Diwali, the festival of light.  The pupils enjoyed hearing about the customs of the festival and enjoyed trying on traditional clothing. After the visit, children tried their hand at creating their own Rangoli patterns using chalk, jigsaws and large foam shapes.  In addition to this, pupils chose mendhi patterns for their hands. They made and decorated their own diva lamps using clay, paint and glitter. 


As our theme this half term is colour, pupils read about the festival of colour known as Holi. They enjoyed a colourful celebration in which they threw powder paint and yelled 'Holi Hai!' The playground was an array of colour and great fun was had by all.
