Nursery Blog – Autumn 1 – 2023-2024

Our Library Visit

Today our nursery children visited the Library. We loved exploring lots of different texts and sharing stories together. We then returned to school and picked a book from our school library to borrow and take home. We cannot wait to go again in a few weeks.

Our First Few Weeks

We have had a fantastic first few weeks in nursery. The children have explored our core text “Peter Puffin” – we loved learning all about puffins and creating our own Puffins. We then looked at the text “Super Duper You”- We loved learning about ourselves, we created self portraits in different media. The children then looked at Frida Kahlo and created our own flower crowns like Frida’s self portrait. We took a tour of our school and have enjoyed making the building and our homes in the construction area. The children have enjoyed lots of mark making, developing scissor skills and taking on various roles in the home corner – making our own playdough.

Forest Schools 


Nursery had a fantastic time during our forest school session. We took part in a helicopter communication game during our “circle time in nature”, we then collected natural materials and created our own natural self portraits. We used some images to help and talked about the facial features and some children told us the faces were happy/sad based on their smile. We then listened to the story “Leaf Man” and spoke about how the leaves looked like lots of different animals. The children cannot wait to go again in a few weeks!
