Autumn 1

We would like to welcome all our children old and new to our Nursery. We are very excited about all the new children that have joined our school and we know that all the children are looking forward to making lots of new friends.


This half term we are going to be settling in and finding out what it is like in Nursery and the routines we have each day. Throughout this half term we will be exploring all of the lovely resources we have that help us to learn.

Week 2 - Can't You Sleep Little Bear?

This week the children have been listening to the story Can't You Sleep Little Bear? They had lots of fun working together with their friends to build their very own bear dens using our large construction poles and lots of material. The children then explored their dark den using a range of torches. 

The children thought about how they could help little bear. They decided to put lanterns in all different places to see if that helped little bear to go to sleep! To do this they had to listen to the position of where the lantern needed to be and then followed the instruction.

The children then made their own lanterns so that they didn't feel scared of the dark either. They did this by practising their scissor skills to cut out a lantern and choose their own coloured light to put inside it! 

Roald Dahl Day. The children had lots of fun dressing up as different characters from Roald Dahl books and finding out all about the famous author.

Week 3 - Who's been sitting in my chair?

This week the children were horrified to find that the home corner had been trashed! A chair had been broken and the house was very messy. The children found clues that led them to believe that the house belonged to the Three Bears. They found a big, medium and small chair, bowl, spoon and cup in the cottage. They also found some shoes, a blue hair ribbon and a blue dress near the crime scene. This made them think that Goldilocks might have been responsible...

The crime scene!

The children received a book from the police. It was the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. They had lots of fun joining in with the repetitive story words in different voices for each of the bears.


They also enjoyed listening to the song 'When Goldilocks went to the house of the bears' using some simple actions as they sang. Follow the link below to sing along!
