Last week the full time nursery found some giant eggs in our garden. We discussed what we thought was inside the eggs. The children had great imaginations as some thought it was a giant chocolate egg from the Easter Bunny whilst others thought it could be a golden egg from Jack and the beanstalk, baby chicks, a dragon or a dinosaur. The children created their own posters to help find the owner of the two giant eggs and placed them around Nursery. The next day when we came to school we noticed that the eggs were missing and found a range of footprints and fossils in our nursery classroom. We investigated what happened to the eggs and managed to free some baby dinosaurs trapped in ice by investigating different ways in which we could make ice melt faster #dcpscaterpillar #dcpsEYFS #dcps30hours #dcpscore #dcpslotc #dcpsstem #dcpsenglish ...

Nursery have been very busy this week exploring shapes, Jack and the beanstalk and lots and lots of gardening! They were amazed to see the seed pop out from the bean as well as the root and stem growing! The children have started to grow their own beanstalks and we will update you with their progress! ...

This week in nursery we have continued to learn about growth and combined it with the traditional tale Jack and the beanstalk. We have spent lots of time this week painting pictures of plants, looking after our nursery garden and thinking about beanstalks! We have also used the story to explore maths concepts around shape. For our story detectives session this week’s mystery was… where is Jack? After looking at clues and finding Jack we advised him to stop taking other people’s things and to apologise to the Giant! Another mystery solved. . #dcpscaterpillar #dcpsliteracy #dcpsmaths #dcpseyfs #dcpstem ... See MoreSee Less

After exploring our own growth ( looking at pictures of us as babies ) the nursery children have started to explore growth all around us. We have looked at creatures and plants in our yard including a very busy ladybird. We have started to plant flowers and carrots in our nursery planters and are going to remember to water them each day, especially in this hot weather! #dcpscaterpillar #dcpsEYFS #dcpsstem ...

Last week the full time nursery explored the topic space as they listened to the story Whatever Next by Jill Murphy. The children imagined what it would be like to go into space and built their own rocket ships using our junk modelling resources and Lego. The children had great fun exploring our space tuff tray and PJ Mask figures and used these to make up their own space adventures. We thought about who might live in space and made our own alien puppets and created our own rocket pictures using different shapes #dcpsEYFS #dcpscaterpillar #dcps30hours #dcpscore #dcpsmaths #dcpsenglish #dcpsdt #dcpsart ...

We hope you have all had a lovely weekend celebrating the Queen’s jubilee. Last week the full time nursery children worked very hard to prepare for their own jubilee party. We made and decorated our own crown biscuits, baked scones, made our own flags and created some beautiful crowns fit for the queen herself. We even built and decorated our own castle! The children loved learning about the Queen and dancing to some of the best British tunes from the Beatles to the spice girls during our jubilee celebrations #dcpscaterpillar #dcps30hours #dcpseyfs #dcpspshe #dcpsbritishvalues #dcpscore ...
