We know that there have been lots of birthdays during the last few months. Happy 4th Birthday to you all!! We are all thinking about you. Hope you had a lovely day with your family at home! Love from us all at nursery x

Make your own playdough at home! 

Playdough is a great resource for fine motor development. Manipulating playdough helps strengthen hand muscles and develop control over the fingers. 


4 minute playdough recipe 


  • Add 2 cups of plain flour to a large bowl.
  • Next add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil.
  • Then add half a cup of salt.
  • Next add 2 tablespoons of cream of tartar (this might be tricky to find, the recipe will work without it, just keep the playdough in the fridge to keep it fresh.) 
  • Give all the ingredients a big mix! 
  • This step must be done by the adult! Add 1-1.5 cups of boiling water. When cooler the child can continue mixing. 
  • Add your chosen food colouring if available. 


What will you make with your playdough? 

Challenge...Can you make your face? Or your favourite food or animal? Or shape the dough to make the letters of your name?

Easter Activities


The children have enjoyed reading our first key story of , 'The Elves and the Shoemaker'. Here is some of our learning so far...

Spring term topic web

Our Autumn topic is, 'Party Party!'

We had porridge, just like the bears! We followed a visual recipe and added our favourite toppings!

Our first topic is, 'If you go down to the woods today!' We started off our topic by bringing our special teddy bears into school. Our teddy bears had a picnic with us and we introduced them to all our friends. This week we have be creating some beautiful art work of our teddies for our display walls in Nursery. They are looking amazing so far! We have started to learn the story of 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears'this week too. Here are some photos of all the exciting things we have been doing
