Look what’s arrived….Baby Chicks and Mr Sunshine!

On Monday we have some very special chick eggs delivered to our class! We have been given 10 eggs to look after. On day 2 our eggs started to hatch one by one and by day 4 we had a full house of baby chicks.  We have been learning how to look after our chicks in the classroom by feeding them, cleaning them daily. We have been hard workers!

Once all the chicks were hatched we had a hold of them – we even give them a name! Our chicks are called……….
Jessie, Fluffy, Sophie, Marshall, Effie and Ryan – we are still waiting to name the last 4! You can spot them on the webcam with the coloured dot on there heads.





We enjoyed the first bit of sunshine today  – we were so exited we went out onto the big field and played some games with Miss Clark and Mrs Fryatt.





Fee Fi Fo Fum!

This week in Nursery we have been learning Jack and the Beanstalk. We have been very busy making our own story book, Painting our favourite characters and even dressing up! When the children dressed up, they took their role very seriously which led us to making our own story book. Feel free to come and read it!


Friday this week we received a letter from Jack. He told us that we needed to find the little old man in our school who had a green magical box for us! And guess who was the little old man……………..our year 6 teacher Mr Hunter!


Also, a big thank you to our parent and carers this week who came into our nursery to look through your child’s learning journal! We look forward to next Wednesday planting our magical beans.


World Book Day – Thursday 15th March

Mr Wolf Pancakes……..is now Penshaw Nursery Pancakes!

This week in Nursery we have been reading the story Mr Wolf’s Pancakes. The children have a took a big interest in Mr Wolfs Pancakes so  we decided that as a class we would make our very own Pancakes. First of all, we needed to keep our hands clean to keep the germs away.


We then helped Miss Clark and Mrs Fryatt mix the ingredients together. 

Once the pancake mix was all ready – we got to taste them with our favourite topping. The children made a tally chart of what topping they would like in their key groups.

The Children loved this part of the day…tasting their Pancakes….Yum Yum!!IMG_6920[1]


Nursery Express….Wheels on the Bus!

This week in Nursery we have been learning about Wheels on the Bus! We have been very busy making our very own ‘Nursery Express No 1′ bus’. The children have designed and created it as they wanted. Throughout the week the children will be making bus tickets, making their own buses using play dough and many more exciting things!

Our new friends in Nursery have really enjoyed exploring all areas of the setting and getting to know their new friends.

We have received some amazing homework projects….keep them coming!
