 People who help us! 


After thinking about Renoir and the job he did, we thought about whether Mrs Astle would be a good artist! It turns out we didn't really think so! This week we have been chatting about what we would like to be when we grow up.
Everybody came up with lots of ideas ranging from a clown, a nurse, a princess, a fireman, the queen to a cowboy!
Everyone thought that a doctor was a very important job and we made a doctors surgery in the role play area. We pretended we were lots of different characters and made up different storylines to use when we played with our friends.


We were also very lucky to have firefighters come to visit to tell us all about how they help people. Andy and Elliot showed us the clothes they wear and the tools they use. Then, we got to look at the fire engine, sit in the cab and also use the hose to spray lots of water!!!!!!!! 
What an exciting day!


After a lot of legal wrangling, work has begun on our Climbing Frame to finally complete the safety surface surrounding it. Once the wetpour has been done and the whole area has been inspected for safety purposes then it will be ready to use!!


Behaviour and Discipline in Nursery


This week through PSED (personal, social and emotional development) we are going to be thinking about our Nursery Rules and how our behaviour affects our learning. If there is something you think we should include in our rules, let us know!
You can post in Mrs Astle's blog or you can email us at


Rain rain go away! 
Hopefully we can start to see signs of Spring now at Nursery as the weather gets better. Over the next couple of weeks we will be thinking about 'umbrellas' through April showers and we will be looking closely at the famous picture by Renoir 'The umbrellas'. 



We will be having a brolly day on Thursday 18th April where each child can bring a brolly to school, it can be any shape or size!!!
Watch this space for the amazing artwork we will create!
