Our days are action-packed in Nursery and Pre-Prep. Here’s a taster of some of the things we get up to in the Early Years classrooms.

Ugly Bug Ball Day for Nursery

Nursery children enjoyed an Ugly Bug Ball themed day. They came dressed up in some wonderful bug costumes and had a great day baking and decorating bug cakes; swimming; sponge printing bugs and a great session of dance with Ms Coates. They learned a dance themed to ‘The very hungry caterpillar’, moving their bodies in different ways to music to act the story out. We had a lot of fun with the class and as you can see, the children enjoyed themselves.

 

Reception class are loving writing

In Reception, we are practising our writing using flashcards and marker pens to write out what we can see and say. The children are making fantastic progress and their writing confidence is growing. Even when the activity was over they wanted to carry on.

 

Year 2 practise division using different techniques

Children in Year 2 have been working on their division skills, using lots of different objects to see how many ways then can divide the number 30 into equal groups. Not only did they practise their maths but they had to employ teamwork and diplomacy skills!
