                                                                       Wellie Wednesday 

Wellie Wednesday has been so much fun!

We have been on a Gruffalo hunt, a nature walk, insect hunt and created natural material crowns. 

We even bought back natural materials to add to our mud kitchen and create a mini garden for outdoor small world fun. 

 

                           Risk and Challenge- Sewing cloth dolls 

This week nursery have been helping Miss Hughes to create cloth dolls. The element of risk and challenge to this activity allows children to feel grown up, assess risk and feel that they can be trusted to use tools (needles and thread) with support. 

 

                                                            Our local area and community

This term Nursery have been learning about the local area and community. We have been talking about local amenities, areas including Rugeley and Brereton and all of the fun places that we can enjoy safely.

Brereton and Ravenhall park has recently added some wonderful outdoor items and facilities including bird boxes, a mud kitchen and a seating area with tiny knitted fairy items. 

PE Days
