Barnaby and Buttons bear

Hello Nursery,

We have all had a wonderful time going on travels with Barnaby and Buttons bear, they have taken us on lots of journeys around the world and now finally they have come back home!

This Friday 28th, I would like all children in on this day to bring their Special bear to nursery so that we can have a teddy bears picnic with Barnaby and Buttons before they say goodbye to us.

We will be making sandwiches for an afternoon tea and talking about why are bears are special.

Barnaby and Buttons can’t wait to see you and your teddy bears.

Many Thanks,

Miss Thelwell and the Nursery teamx

Hello Nursery,

Can I start by saying a huge thank you to all the parents/carers and most importantly all the nursery children for making the transition back into the Nursery as happy and positive as possible. Settling back into the nursery routine has been effortless, all the children have listened and worked really hard in all the topics this term and we have lots more fun topics to get our teeth into in the next.

If any of the children in on Thursday would like to come to Nursery dressed up in either their world book day costume that we never got to see, or just there favourite princess or super hero then please feel free.

A well deserved treat day to end a lovely spring term.

Happy Easter everyone!

Friday 5th March

Happy Friyay everyone,

You have all made it through another week Well done. And it’s your last Friday for home learning!!! You did it, you all should be super proud of yourselves and I can’t wait to see you all together again on Monday.

Today we going to start our last Friyay with some PE, I would like you to move like a minibeast, using the cards below follow the directions, you could slide like a snail or  flutter like a butterfly. Make sure everyone joins in!


After PE lets settle down in to our morning routine, I would like you to concentrate on some fine motor skills. Work on your pencil grip today while writing your name and also some scissor work really work on holding scissors correctly and making snips and cutting around shapes.


This afternoon we are going to practice our size matching looking at different sized mini beasts using the terminology, big/large- little/small and also looking at the word medium and what that means.


After that it’s time for you to all have a well deserved rest, choose a snuggly activity to do together: a story, jigsaw with a drink and a biscuit and enjoy the weekend together.

Stay safe and see you on Monday,

Thursday 4th March

Hello Nursery,

This morning after our daily morning routine, I would like you to make mini beasts out of playdough,  don’t worry if you don’t have any playdough I have a great non-cook recipe to make some together at home.

You can use pipe cleaners for wings if you are making a bee, or draw eyes on paper to add on, or googly eyes if you have them, make sure you pat, roll and squeeze your dough which is great for improving your fine motor skills.

This afternoon we are making a spider out of a toilet /kitchen roll (please see below), then we are going to sing Incy Wincey spider and make our Incy spider prop move to the song up the drain pipe and down again.

  • How many legs has your spider got??


Wednesday 3rd March

Hello everybody,

It’s Wednesday again the middle of the week. How is your learning going so far, are you enjoying our minibeast theme?? Please get in touch and let me know.

Today we are going to start by reading the story ‘The Cautious Caterpillar’. it’s all about a caterpillar called Cody who is feeling worried about change. it takes us through his journey and all the friends he meets upon the way. The story is all about feeling worried about change, this is particularly important during this time in lockdown. so it’s super important we all talk.

  • Have you ever felt worried about things changing?

After you have listened and talked about the story I would like you to have a go at making a symmetrical butterfly picture, you can use the template provided below or cut out your own butterfly then paint one side only. Once finished fold it over and see the print appear on the other side, making it SYMMETRICAL.


This afternoon is yoga time again so make sure you have some fun with Coco the Butterfly.
