We have had lots of fun in our first few days exploring our new nursery build. Here are some of the children enjoying their new learning spaces. We have had lots of visitors already and the children are very proud of and excited about their new space.
We have relaunched our Attendance Challenge this half term rather than giving a £100 to the class with the best each term we are now giving £10 to the class with the best attendance each week (if there is a tie the matching winning classes will get £5). This has been a huge hit with the children.
So far class 3 and class 12 have won £10 to spend as they choose. Both classes are saving their money for a bigger reward. Watch the class blogs to see how they choose to spend their money!
Thanks to all the parents and carers who came out to support our theme celebration and view the amazing work the children have produced this term. To see the children’s excited faces and hear them explain to their parents and carers what they’d been learning was fantastic. We have loved our theme and can’t wait to share the impact of the children’s progress this term at our celebration of learning day on the 18th April!
This week was the launch of our EasyPeasy App. I am so pleased to have welcomed parents already into the EasyPeasy pod! Don’t forgot to return your slip with your name and number and you can receive a text with the latest game to get your child School ready! Today we tried the game of the week ‘sock puppets’ .
The focus of this game is writing and a simple game where children can explore using narrative and their creative thinking to tell a story. Skills children will need for creative writing when they are ready! Have fun at home and don’t forget to comment in the forum so we can see how much fun you are having!
The nursery children visited their new blank canvas classroom today. As part of our transition back to our new learning space we explored the empty space, spoke about our favourite things we need to include and our behaviour and learning expectations next week. The children were super excited to share how they feel with each other. We are so excited for what our new learning space has to offer our children in early years at Greentop!

We are delighted to inform parents that from Monday 12th March, nursery sessions will once again be held in the new nursery renamed ‘The Lilies’. Miss Carter and her team are so excited to be able to get into this new learning space.
A super day was had by all celebrating world book day by dressing up and enjoying our favourite stories and exploring our favourite characters. A massive well done to Naomi for winning best dressed! The nursery staff were in awe of her home made costume and of her knowledge of many stories including a ladybird character. The children had lots of fun talking about their costumes and stories and had lots of book fun at maths time! In the morning the children enjoyed a big bedtime story read where they collected cushions and blankets to lay and listen to their favourite stories brought in from home. In the afternoon the children watched their favourite class text ‘the train ride ‘ and took part in one of their first assemblies. We finished off the day creating character selfies and watching Paddington Bear for our funky Friday!
At last snow that we can play in!
For the first time in our little lives we had snow yesterday that we could play in! The children tried to build a snowman with the soft fluffy snow but it was just too soft!
They soon developed an interest and curiosity as to how it moved in the air and there was lots of throwing, jumping and squeezing!
Victoria, Scarlett and Esme worked together throughout the week showing a sustained interest in shape. The girls discussed what they noticed, naming and exploring the 2D shapes. The girls went on to draw the shapes naming them to show their understanding.
