Can you believe it is Summer term already???
For this half term Nursery will be learning all about different types and fruit and veg. This will include growing our very own vegetables, tasting and cooking with lots of different fruit and veg and talking about what we need to eat to stay healthy.
We are learning all about BEARS!!!!!!
This term in Nursery we are going to be looking at the stories Goldilocks and the three bears and We're going on a bear hunt.
Have a look at the planning below to see what we will be getting up to and don't forget to keep an eye out in your child's home school contact book for lots of ideas on how to extend learning at home.
During the last half term Nursery had lots of fun exploring their new classroom and playing with their new friends.
Have a little look at what we have been doing...
Welcome to Nursery
This term our topic is ‘My heroes’. We like to plan around children’s ideas and interests so if your child has any suggestions please bring them to our attention.
It was lovely to see you all come to our Stay and Play Day. The children really enjoyed the day and we enjoyed showing the parents and carers around the Nursery.
Welcome back to school after your Easter break. This term we are learning all about Minibeasts. Do you know any Minibeasts ? If you do then it would be brilliant if you shared it with Nursery.
This term, we have planned a Stay and Play Day for Parents and Carers on Tuesday the 26th and Wednesday the 27th of April. If you plan on joining us, then you only need to attend one of the days above. Please tell Nursery which day you wish to attend.
We have had a brilliant Autumn term at The Drive Primary School Nursery. Our topic for Spring term is 'Fairy Tales'. We will be looking at different Fairy Tales weekly so keep an eye on the Weekly Newsletter for more information.
We had a lovely time at our Christmas Party. Thank you for all the party food donations from the Parents and Carers. We even had a special visitor to our party! Have a look at the children in their fab outfits.
We had an excellent time learning The Nativity Story. Thank you to all Parents and Carers for coming to see us perform in our Nativity. I think you will agree that it was fantastic and it was a perfect way to celebrate a special time of the year.
Miss McIvor and Mrs Spour would like to say thank you for supporting our colours of the week theme and bringing in lots of different objects. We have had great fun looking at what you have brought in and sharing it with the class. Keeping looking at the weekly newsletter to find out any information.
We have been really busy in Nursery. So far, this term we have made bread, explored our new outdoor area and learnt all about our colours. We have had an excellent time! Have a look at the photographs to see if you can see yourself!
Autumn Term Planning
We would like to thank all of you who attended our Stay and Play day at Nursery. All of the staff at The Drive Nursery had an excellent time and it was lovely to see all of the parents and carers supporting us. Thank you!!!
We had a Road Safety Visit at Nursery. We talked about how important it is to be careful when crossing roads and making sure we are holding our adults hand. It was great fun learning about how to stay safe. We learnt a new song too! It is the same tune as 10 green bottles and it goes like this:
'Stop, Look and Listen,
Before you cross the road.
Stop, Look and Listen,
Before you cross the road.
Use your eyes,
Use your ears,
Before you use your feet,
Stop, Look and Listen,
Before you cross the street'.
We hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year. Our topic for spring term is all about Pets and Animals. We are going to have lots of fun! If you have pets at home we would love to hear from you, you could bring in pictures of your animal for us to look at.
Last week, Nursery made cakes for Children in Need. We melted the chocolate, and with help from Miss McIvor we stirred in puffed cereal. The cakes were sold in the cake sale and we hope you enjoyed them!
We have recently changed our water area in Nursery to a baby bath. We have dolls, flannels and sponges in this area. We really enjoy learning how to keep ourselves clean and pretending to look after babies. We really need more Baby Product bottles (Shampoo, Bubble Bath etc) that are empty to put in this area. If you have any going spare at home then it would be brilliant if you could bring them in for us!
Welcome to Nursery!
Miss McIvor,Mrs Spour and Mrs Grant are very excited to have you back for the new school year. This term, our topic is all about ourselves and celebrations.
If you are a new starter to the nursery we welcome you to our school. On your start date, can you please make sure that you return all the forms back that we gave you on home visits to the nursery. This webpage will be updated frequently with all the information you need to know.
