Rockhopper Penguins

Welcome to the Rockhopper Penguin page (Nursery)! We have lots of new children this term who are settling in well. 




Disaster has struck the Nursery! We made our own Gingerbread men and popped them into the oven. Whilst they were baking we went to the gym for P.E.
Shock! Horror!
On return we found that the Gingerbread Men had escaped! We searched the school and made lost posters in case anyone found them. We even captured the escape on CCTV!

Chick inspiration! The writing, drawing, learning of new vocabulary, developing a sense of time using a numberline , sequencing skills, observing change in nature and learning about other’s needs has enhanced our children’s learning. Big thanks to Mark and Warren for facilitating this opportunity.

The arrival of some chicken eggs from Mark our Chicken Therapist is having a key influence on children’s learning across all areas of the EYFS curriculum.  They are embracing the important task of monitoring the temperature and humidity; observing their development and taking care of eggs before returning to Mark and the local farm.

Excitement and joy has erupted in school! Children have been watching with awe and wonder as the first of the chicks hatched followed by her brothers and sisters. Mark will then take the chicks to our own school chicken coop and to a farm to live out their lives happily.

It's beginning to look like Christmas in our Nursery Class! Thank you to all the parents and carers help the child to decorate their classroom. It's looking truly festive!

.A big thank you to all the parents and carers joining us in your pyjamas for our Book at Bedtime event.

We love having Friday Friends from The Bevy visiting us. We always have lots of fun baking, playing games and chatting!

Nursery have been enjoying all things spooky! Can your child tell you about their magic experiments?!

Children, parents and carers from Moulsecoomb Nursery, Toddler Group and Moulsecoomb Children's Centre had a fantastic time at Read and Rhyme today in our school gym. The children loved listening to our special book 'Dear Zoo' before exploring all of the messy activities. We look forward to seeing you again in our next Read and Rhyme event next half term!

Nursery went on an exciting expedition to the moon! We visited BrightSTAR (Brighton Space Training and Research academy) where we had great fun exploring in the interactive space station, complete with Mission Control, Bio-Lab and Star Simulator! A huge thanks to Little Green Pig for your inspiring environment and work shop leaders.
