Last week, pupils and parents alike were treated to an excellent re-telling of The Christmas Story through our Nativity Play. Children from our Nursery and Reception classes led a superb performance which included many wonderful songs, clear confident speaking and (of course!) lots of ‘wriggling’. See if you can watch the highlights below without wriggling yourself!
On Tuesday morning, pupils and parents alike were treated to an excellent re-telling of the Nativity story. Children from our Nursery and Reception classes led a superb performance which included many wonderful songs, brave acting and lots of drumming! The children all spoke beautifully and extremely clearly. All the teachers, parents and siblings were very proud.
Recently, our Nursery visited Smithills Open Farm in Bolton. The children had a great day learning about the different animals, how they are fed and who looks after them. We all had a fabulous time! A big thank you to all the parents that came; without your help, this school trip wouldn’t have been possible.
Last half-term the Nursery class learnt about the artist Jackson Pollock. After studying his work and exploring some brush techniques, they decided to have a go at the methods he used. The children had great fun splashing, flicking and squirting the paint, even if it did get a bit messy at times!
This week, the children from Nursery led a special Easter assembly. As well as showcasing their amazing Easter bonnets, they told us how they had been preparing for Easter and learning about Spring. It was a fabulous colourful celebration which brought a smile to everyone’s face. The children definitely all had a spring in their toes!
The Nursery enjoyed learning about Chinese New Year so much that they decided to make their own dragon. After painting two large boxes red, they decorated them with lots of shiny and colourful materials. The real fun was in the dancing though. The children really enjoyed trying to beat the drums in time to the music. Take a look at them dancing in the video which also shows a selection of the things they enjoyed during the Chinese New Year celebrations.
The Nursery have been learning about Autumn and the changes that take place during this season. They have been very busy painting leaves, making bird feeders and creating a giant hedgehog on the playground. Take a look at how much fun they have been having!
