Nursery Children’s Fabulous Rockets

Last week in the nursery we had a fabulous time learning all about space and rockets. We created some fabulous box rockets and experimented with bottles to see what happened to our rockets when we pushed air through the top. The children designed some lovely looking aliens using gummed paper. They used shapes to print rockets, naming the shapes as they did so, well done everyone! We used a spinner to see how many marshmallows to feed the aliens. We then got to spin again to eat some ourselves, this was very popular. Well done on all of you hard work children.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in to school to watch our Nativity


The children in Reception have loved our space topic this week. We have learnt lots about the planets in our solar system and watched a video of an astronaut in space brushing his teeth to demonstrate the lack of gravity in space. We have also loved watching the Solar System song which is attached below. Can you remember any facts about the planets?

Reception Owl Babies

This week in Reception, we have been reading the story ‘Owl Babies’ by Martin Waddell. We have been very busy creating some fantastic pieces of work including split pin owls, fluffy owls on a branch and owls with 3D eyes! We’ve also used owls on a branch to find one less and written speech bubbles to show what the owl babies said in the story. What a lovely week!


The children in Reception have loved telling each other about the fireworks they saw over the weekend. We have been busy making sparklers, drawing and painting fireworks, making bonfires, rockets and Catherine wheels! We are so glad everybody remembered how to keep safe on bonfire night too. Well done everybody!

Safe Fireworks in the Nursery

We have had an extremely busy time in the Nursery learning about firework safety. The children have created some very explosive pictures using a variety of different media. We hope you all have a lovely, very safe weekend.
