St David's Day 

Sarah who works in the Nursery is Welsh so we celebrated St David's Day with her today.

We watched a clip about how David became the Patron Saint of Wales (not whales) and some children wore red or yellow clothes to match the colours of daffodils (which are a symbol of Wales) and the red dragon on the flag.

Ruth forgot to get leeks so we didn't taste them at snack but we did have delicious Welsh cakes!

Harlow spotted a red dragon on our castle resources too!


New wet weather gear 

Nursery are extremely grateful to Brunel Friends Association for buying us several new sets of wet weather clothing!

We try to get outside whatever the weather but sometimes our old wet weather gear let the rain in, which wasn't very comfortable!

Now we can play happily outside even in the rain; we especially like finding the puddles!


Learning around our story 

As part of the learning arising from our focus story the children have been thinking about groups of 3, and sizes.

We have looked at small, medium and large things around the room and garden, and have had a go at retelling the story with different characters, and different endings.

The children have been busy finding 3 of everything too, but we did say 'no' to 3 biscuits at snack time!


Visiting St Anne's 

We restarted our visits to St Anne's care home this week. It was lovely to see the Grannies and Grandads again after the Christmas break.

We took up some of our favourite story books and had a great time reading and sharing them.



Our new focus story 

Our new focus story is 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'.

We will be basing all our learning this half term around aspects of the story, particularly sizes, counting to 3,sets of 3, building and making bridges,and how things make us feel (scared, afraid, happy, content).

Do you have this story at home?

Do you have any different versions?


Merry Christmas 

Well, We have finally got to the end of the term!

Lots of tinsel and glitter, glue and sticking, singing and signing; 1 Christmas dinner, lots of advent calendar chocolate and 4 Nativity performances!

Well done everyone for making Brunel Nursery such a happy place to be.

We've enjoyed all of the Christmas preparations and celebrations and hope that you all enjoy the festive season, too.


We will remember 

Making our red poppies so that we could join in with Remembrance Day.
