Nursery 2020 - 2021
A message to the Cygnets and Swans...
We can't believe we are now in our last full week of this school year! What a strange year it has been. We are really sorry we've not been able to do all of the activities we had planned with you but we hope you have enjoyed trying out some of the ones we have suggested at home. Did you see that the dinosaurs came to Bexton on Friday?!
This week we thought the Cygnets might like to learn all about Bears! Can you play Hide and Seek with your bear at home or have a teddy bear's picnic or maybe go on a bear hunt through the woods? We have lots of activities you might like to try and would love to see pictures of you having fun with your bears.
With the help of Topsy and Tim and Charlie and Lola the Swans are learning more about getting ready for school. Please send us some pictures of the activities you are doing to get ready for school. I bet you all look so grown up now.
Take care everyone and hopefully we will see you all soon.
Love from Louise, Mrs Howard, Sharon, Gill and all the Preschool staff. xx
Welcome to Bexton Preschool Nursery
At Bexton Preschool Nursery we provide a safe, nurturing, stimulating environment in which children are able to learn and develop and ultimately be ready for school. We recognise that every child is unique and learns in their own way and at their own pace and so adapt our activities and approaches so that we are able to expand and enhance each child’s learning experience in order to develop their knowledge and understanding.
Our Nursery is managed by Louise Barker.
We have 2 rooms:
Cygnets Room (2-3 year olds)
Our Cygnets Staff are Sharon (Room Supervisor), Gill (Room Supervisor), Debbie, Helen and Heather
In the Autumn term, our main focus is to ensure the children settle. We have looked at a number of different stories including Shark in the Park, Dogs Colourful Day, Driving my Tractor, Owl Babies, Jack and the Beanstalk and The Gingerbread Man. The Cygnets loved bringing these stories to life in role play, retelling and re-enacting them with their peers.
Swans Room (3-4 year olds)
Our Swans Staff are Mrs Howard (Class Teacher), Katrina, Jo, Jane, Jill, Vicky and Emma.
In the Autumn term we looked at the ‘Bexton Values’ and stories such as ‘The Rainbow Fish’ and ‘Lost and Found’ which linked to friendships and being kind. We shared stories about families and friends and look at family trees and how they’ve grown since being a baby. We also looked at the different ways of travelling, shared some stories such as The Train Ride & the Tony Mitton stories Cool cars and Amazing Aeroplanes. We set up a train station and then an airport which the children loved to role play in.
In the Spring term the Swans read some traditional tales and other favourite stories such as Golilocks, the Elves and the Shoemaker, The Gruffalo, How big is a Million? and Owl Babies. We had a very special visit from Ian who works at Lower Moss Wood who brought in 3 owls to show us. The children noticed lots of changes in our environment which led to us learning all about minibeasts and the life cycle of a butterfly and a frog.
