In nursery we have been preparing for Christmas. We have made advent wreaths, enjoyed retelling the Christmas story in our Bethlehem role play area and helped to paint the nativity scene.

Nursery Nativity Performance

Planting Daffodils

We had a donation of daffodil bulbs fro Morrison's supermarket in Eccles. The children enjoyed planting these in tubs for the nursery garden and each child planted one to look after at home. We look forward to watching the flowers grow. 

Black History Month

Miss Handley brought in a steel pan to show the children. We found out the steel pan comes from Trinidad and Tobago and is made from old oil drums. The drums are hammered to make musical notes. Miss Handley let us have a try at playing the drum and hear the different sounds it makes. Finally we watched a YouTube video of Pantonic All Stars steel orchestra featuring Miss Handley's brother and we had a dance to the music.

Welcome to St Gilbert's

As part of their RE work, Year 2 made cards to welcome the nursery children to St Gilbert's school. The children drew beautiful pictures and wrote lovely, kind messages to our nursery class. Thank you Year 2!
