A warm welcome to the St Clare's Nursery Webpage. Here you can explore all the wonderful and exciting learning we are doing in nursery and browse our photo galleries to experience some of the activities we have been involved with.

 

Our new topic, "All Creatures Great and Small," has certainly got us excited in Nursery!  It seems like some of the greatest creatures of all time have come to visit!  Look at these fabulous photos of our dinosaur small world:

 

Not only that, but we couldn't believe it when we found dinosaur footprints and dinosaur eggs in our Early years playground!

Palm Sunday

We have been learning all about Palm Sunday.  We know this is a time when Jesus arrived in Jerusalem on a donkey. We know the people greeted him by waving palm leaves and shouting, "Hosanna, Hosanna!"  We made our own palm leaves and acted out the story:

Easter Bonnets

We were set a homework challenge to make our own Easter bonnets.  Just look at these amazing creations!  We think they're all wonderful:

Lent

We have been learning about Lent in nursery.  We know this is a really important time leading up to Easter.  We know that Jesus dies on the cross at Easter.  We worked as a team and made a cross for our outdoor area and draped it in purple cloth (the colour of lent.)  We said some prayers together and we can visit the cross when we are outside to say prayers and think about Jesus.

End of Autumn 2

Well what a wonderful half term we have had in Nursery!  We have loved our topic "My five senses" and have had so many wonderful opportunities to explore all our senses.  We smelled and touched a pumpkin - the children described it as "really slimy!".  We have had some exciting weather to explore outside too.  We used sticks to make marks in the frost, made footprints in the snow and tried to catch snow flakes on our tongues.  We loved touching the ice too and watching it melt in our hands! We have also had some wonderful Christmas experiences too.  We were all amazing in our nursery nativity "A Phonic Christmas Story."  We enjoyed Christmas dinner, Christmas jumper day, Aladdin the Pantomime and a Christmas party.  We even had a special video call from Father Christmas!  This half term was also the first time we went to church to join in with the Christmas Mass - Father was really pleased with our singing.  Mrs. Drury and the Nursery team are really proud of all the Nursery children and cannot wait to see what 2022 brings.  We would like to wish all of our families a wonderful and Holy Christmas and a Happy New year!
