Name jumble 

Today Rhian’s name was in a big jumble, watch as she tries to put them back into the right order, you can try using your full name to help then when you are ready try and sort them with no help! Have fun and upload them onto EvidenceMe. 

Prepositions

In nursery we have been very busy learning our prepositions, we have used lots of toys and objects to show we understand and can use prepositions! Maybe you could have a go at home with your toys!

Christmas Photos

The children in Chestnuts have had a very busy few weeks doing lots of Christmas learning, we have explored how to wrap presents, writing letters to Father Christmas and lots of festive play! The creativity in the classroom has been bubbling over with snow playdough, making sleighs in the garden and decorating the trees.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

Christmas Videos

In the last few weeks Chestnuts have been working really hard to learn all of the words and actions to some Christmas songs for their parents and carers to see. We are very proud of all of them and we’re sure you will be too.

We hope you enjoy the show!

Welly Walk

Our Chestnuts have done brilliantly with their Welly Walk challenge, raising lots of funds for Evesham Nursery School. The walks took place over a week at the start of November on the big field next to the Nursery. As well as taking lots of steps, there were plenty of interesting autumnal sights to spot along the way! Well done Chestnuts!

Bonfire Activities

To celebrate Bonfire night, our Chestnuts took part in lots of fun activities, including painting pictures of fireworks, watching sparklers and even sitting around our own mini bonfire! Afterwards, all the children tucked into jacket potatoes, popcorn and marshmallows!

Frozen Dinosaurs!

Hello Chestnut children, Today Kirsty has been experimenting with ice. she has frozen some toy dinosaurs within ice cubes. It was so fun and easy to do. She then explored different ways to free the dinosaurs. Why don’t you have a go at freeing then rescuing some of your small world figures at home? 

Don’t forget to upload your pictures and ideas on how to melt the ice quicker onto EvidenceMe so we can see your icy fun.

Enjoy
