Spring Term 2016
This term our topic is 'People Who Help Us'. We will be learning about doctors, nurses, dentists, vets, police officers, fire fighters, postmen etc. We hope to have visits from some of these people. If anyone in your family is one of the above and would be willing to come into nursery to talk to the children about their job please speak to a member of staff.
Autumn Term 2015
We have an exciting year ahead and should be moving in to our new building in Spring 2016.
Outdoor Learning Week ~ October
This year we have combined our Outdoor Learning Week with Arts Week. We have been to Oliver Henderson Park to do some activities and are busy making a collage picture of the park. We were luck enough to be invited by Durham Wildlife Trust to help rake and over sow the wildflower meadow in the park. We look forward to seeing the new flowers in the spring.
Please take a look at our photos.

Open Ended Play Outdoors
The children have had lots of fun playing outdoors. They have been exploring and experimenting with a variety of resources outdoors. They have had access to crates, tyres, pipes, tubing, wooden planks and tree slices and have been very imaginative. They have made lots of wonderful things to create their own role play opportunities such as buses, fire engines rockets etc. The children have also used the materials to make stepping stones and balance beams.
Please take a look at the photos below.
