July in Nursery

Here come the robots!

Over the last few weeks we have been visited by Sidney. We have been having fun playing games with him. These have made us listen carefully as he can only talk using sounds.

"I spy with my robot eye

something that sounds like c-a-t??"

This play with phonics will help us listen to sounds in words ready for reading and writing.


We are getting so good at these games and love Sidney's challenges. We decided we wanted to find out more about robots and robot pets.

Our favourite robot story is....

I wonder why??

We have made glitter playdough (we think robots are made of metal so our dough needed to be shiny) and used it with nuts, bolts, wires and washers  to design our own robots. We have worked with junk modelling materials, foil and metallic crayons and built robots with large and small construction resources.

What a week! 

Welcome Wednesday

We had lots of fun with our parents during our July Welcome Wednesday. Thank you for all who came to play with us.

Welcome Wednesday

June in Nursery

Keeping cool in the sunshine

Beautiful Butterflies

Our VERY hungry caterpillars have grown and grown, built cocoons and emerged ready to take flight.

The reception class joined us for the grand release.

Our Golden Celebration

Thank you to everyone who supported us at our  special show. We are so very proud of our school and your children!

Our new outdoor area

It has been a long week watching the workmen prepare our new grass area. We will now be able to use this area all year round. Today the fencing came down and the fun started....

Goodbye to our tadpoles

Today Mrs Websdell took our remaining tadpoles and froglets to the canal for release. We have all found out so much from this experience from feeding them and giving them fresh water to watching them grow. 

We can all tell you what has happened as they changed.

Guess which 'mini-beast pets' we have chosen to care for next....

Nursery and Reception Outdoor Day

Today we welcomed some of our special grown-ups for our school outdoor day. We had fun sharing some of our favourite activities, discovering some hidden talents along the way from gardening mums to den-building grandads!

A great time was had by all!

Sports Day in Nursery

We had an amazing morning showing off all our incredible skills to our families. We had such a fun time, Mrs. Websdell was very proud of us all. 

Now it's time for a well earned holiday!

The Royal Wedding

We had fun finding out about this special day and who will be there. We made a special card to send to Meghan and Prince Harry at Kensington Palace.

We decorated our own wedding cakes for a street party. Yum, yum! 

Sponsored Bounce

We had an amazing time on the bouncy castle.

Thank you to all our grown-ups for the money we raised!

One of our special nursery friends is German. Today she asked to sing us her favourite song. WOW!

World Book Day with our Year three friends

February in Nursery


We don't get snow very often in Leyland but when we do we know how to have fun!

January in Nursery
We found a map hidden in our nursery. It led up to the sand. It was very exciting to find the hidden treasure. Who could have left it?

We wanted to use the blocks to build our own pirate ship and set sail on an adventure.

We have been balancing to walk the plank.

We had a really good idea to make our own treasure play dough. We told Mrs Websdell what we needed!

We are always watching what and how our children choose to play. We use these observations to plan future opportunities. Using three of our current most popular play themes we voted on our next early years topic. Democracy in action!

Our first week back

Whilst the rest of school took part in Maths week we thought we'd like to join in too. Look at all of our lovely shape work. We are very proud of it!

December in Nursery

We enjoyed our 'Let it Shine' Christmas celebration

Gosh, what a fun day we have had!
