Nursery 2019 - 2020
A message to the Cygnets and Swans...
Hi everyone. We hope you are all enjoying the activities that we have suggested for you. You will find all of the weekly challenges and the videos of us singing and reading stories and doing craft etc that we have posted so far in the Archived section if you want to watch them again. We've moved them because we've had to make room for more videos we've made for you!
This week we would like to set you all a cookery challenge! We've made some suggestions for you to try but you can make absolutely anything you like! Just remember to post some photos of your creations on Tapestry and if you post them on the closed Facebook page too include the recipe and your Preschool friends and the staqff can make them aswell.
Have fun and enjoy your cooking!
Take care everyone. 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
Every term we have a new topic, usually generated by ideas from the children.
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 their family trees and how they’ve grown since being a baby and learn about what they enjoy doing now. We also looked at the different ways of travelling by sharing some wonderful stories such as ‘The Train Ride’ & the Tony Mitton stories ‘Cool cars’ and ‘Amazing Aeroplanes’. We set up a role play corner as a train station and then an airport which the children loved.
In the Spring term the Swans read some traditional tales and other favourite stories such as Golilocks, the 3 Little Pigs, the Elves and the Shoemaker as well as ‘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.
