Nursery's Blog

It’s a very exciting day for the Foundation Stage children today!  Mark is here today building our living willow structure dome which we are going to turn into a fairy gardern.  It is fascinating to watch the dome take shape and the children have really enjoyed watching Mark at work.  We can’t wait to see what it looks like when the leaves have grown.

Also, we need to say a big ‘Well Done’ to Daniel who was awarded the Nursery ‘Pupil of the Week’ award on Friday and got to take Billy Bear home at the weekend.

Every Friday afternoon we get together as a Foundation Stage and give out certificates to the children who have impressed us most during the week.  The nursery child who is awarded a certificate also gets to take ‘Billy Bear’ home for the weekend.  We plan to celebrate the children’s achievements each week by posting the name of the child who gets the certificate here on the blog.

This week’s star pupil in Nursery is Lewis who has really impressed week by taking part in a range of activities and behaving brilliantly all week. Well Done Lewis!

Thank you so much to those of you who have sent in your sponsorship money from the Welly Walk.  The Grand Total raised is £852, which is amazing and far more than we ever expected.  We will be spending all of the money on improving our outdoor areas for the children.  We have booked a gardener/artist who will be coming into school on the 28th March to plant a living willow dome which we are going to turn into a ‘Fairy Garden’  for the children.  If you would like to know more see their website at and click on ‘structure kits’.  We will also have some money left over to buy lots of other lovely things for outdoors too.

As promised there will be a prize for the child and their family who raised the most money in each class. In Nursery the prize will go to Joshua Smith who raised a fantastic total of £75, and in Reception the prize will go to Bailey Kirby who raised a whopping £100! A huge thank you goes out to them and their family and friends for being so generous.  If you have not yet sent in your sponsorship money you can still do so and it will be gratefully accepted.

Thank you for your continued support.

Thank you so much to everyone who came with us on the welly walk.  We were amazed at the huge turnout with more than 50 parents and relatives joining us. The children really enjoyed it and we were so lucky with the weather!  Please can you now collect any outstanding sponsorship money and send it to school by next Thursday at the latest.  We will then be able to work out who has raised the most money and award the prize on Friday.

We are currently working hard on improving the outdoor curriculum for our Nursery and Reception children.  We have big plans for developing the outdoor areas and also want to make sure that the children can spend time learning outdoors whatever the weather.  We have recently purchased 30 splash suits that the children can wear on rainy days to keep them dry and prevent their clothes getting wet and muddy.  The children wore them for the first time this week and they loved them! 

The only problem now is that we do not have enough wellies for every child to borrow a pair.  For this reason we are asking all parents to send a pair of wellies to school (labelled with the child’s name please) for the children to keep on their peg and wear on wet days.  Children absolutely love splashing in puddles and playing in the mud and its a shame that we have to prevent them from doing so because we are worried about their shoes getting muddy and their socks getting wet.

Thank you for your continuing support.
