Healthy teeth and gums!

Today Lorna Dibnah visited us to help us learn how to keep our teeth and gums clean and healthy. We talked about food and drink and discussed whether they were healthy or unhealthy for us. We then practised brushing our teeth correctly.

People Who Help Us

      This half term our topic is People Who Help Us.

Today we had a visit from a Police Officer and a Police Community Support Officer. The children thought of some fantastic questions and enjoyed finding out more about how the police can help us.

Butterflies are always busy learning and having fun!

Our boys love to sing and play percussion to keep the beat.

We all learnt Jingle Bells as part of our Christmas performance and we are still singing it in February!


Later we had fun in the sand pit, building sandcastles then knocking them down!

Nursery’s Owl visit!

We have been learning about Owls in Nursery, their different body parts and what they eat. Boo-Boo the European Eagle Owl came to visit us this morning with Rhea from Smithill’s Open Farm.

We could stroke her back¬†gently. Her feathers were very soft. Isn’t Boo-Boo beautiful?
