Have you seen the Gingerbread Man?

Apple Nursery have been learning about ‘The Gingerbread Man’ this week. Yesterday he escaped from the classroom and we looked all over the school to try to find him! The CCTV video showed him running outside Nursery. We tried finding some clues about where he had gone. We thought he might have broken the goalposts and we found crumbs in the infant gazebo where he must have eaten his breakfast!

Then we made some ‘LOST’ posters to let other people know to look for him too.

Porridge Party!

Apple Nursery have been enjoying learning about ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ this week. We made and tasted porridge, dressed up and used the role-play area to re-tell the story. Everyone created a picture from Goldilocks for Baby Bear to say sorry for eating his porridge and breaking his chair.

Key Steps 1 and 2 Gymnastics

Y1,2 3 and 4 pupils had the opportunity to take part in a gymnastics competition. We had been practising at lunchtime and entertaining the pupils in the packed lunch hall. They were extremely excited. It was our first time attending this event and we didn’t know what to expect. We took part in the vault and floor routines. We tried really hard and Y1/2 came 5th and Y3/4 came 8th. Well done children! 

Chinese New Year

Apple Nursery have been learning about how people celebrate Chinese New Year. We enjoyed exploring our Chinese themed tray and dancing to Chinese music as well as watching ‘Let’s Celebrate’ on CBeebies to learn more about Chinese New Year.

Exploring ice

Apple Nursery’s topic this term is ‘Let it Snow’. This week we have been reading the story ‘Elmer in the Snow’ and exploring ice. We enjoyed touching the ice and talking about what we know about ice. We discovered that using salt and leaving ice in a warm place helps it melt and turns ice into water.
