Playdough – Farm Animals

Our topic last week was farm animals and playdough proved to be a popular activity with our 2 year old nursery children. Playdough has many benefits, it develops children’s fine motor skills, it encourages creativity, social interaction and sharing. It also enhances hand eye co-ordination, language skills, as well as having a calming effect.


We talked about different shapes and colours while playing with our dinosaur puzzles and games, we have very clever children in our 2 year old nursery. The children also joined in with colouring dinosaur pictures and making dinosaur footprints with paint.

Lots of sensory play during our dinosaur topic too. The children crumbled shredded wheat, picked up oats and scooped up snow.

Snow days at nursery are ACE!


During our birdwatch topic there were plenty of activities for the children to take part in.

They explored bird seed.

The children made a bird picture using glue sticks and feathers and used crayons to colour in bird pictures too

We had our very own bird hide in the nursery and we used binoculars during our outdoor play to spot birds up high in the sky. The children enjoyed feeding our school chickens and had lots of fun on our birdwatch walk on the school playground.

Christmas in 2YO nursery

Christmas is a very Exciting time of the year for young children, all the bright flashing lights, all the different colours and not forgetting all the singing we do.

We started christmas off with decorating the christmas tree

we all did some christmas baking. The children could choose if they would like mice tarts or jam tarts? Most children choose jam tarts.

We welcomed all our parents in to the 2YO nursery for the Christmas stay and play session

all the parents help the children do christmas crafts and to fishish the session we all sang christmas carols with the children.



We learnt about all the Amazing colours of Autumn.

We all went out into the woods in the school playground to explore why the leaves on the trees have changed colours and are falling on to the ground ??
we all had great fun exploring the woods and we collected lots of leaves…

We did lots of different acctivities using all the leaves we had collected.

We all did a leaf rubbing picture, leaf printing with paint and a tree picture using cotton buds….

We played with al the conckers that had fallen from the trees.


After the October half term break our topic was Diwali. The Children enjoyed playing with colourful rice, they did some lovely colouring, they listened to music and played music instruments, made lots of lovely colourful and shiny collages, plus lots more. Here are a few photos that we would like to share with you.

All about me (October 2022)

Our first term we learn about ourselves and how diversity we all our……
we started with our faces. Sticking eyes, nose and mouth do we know where they go children?

We did lots of playing and having fun with our new friends, learning the nursery routine and building a relationship with our key workers.

We all played outside

meeting the school animals
We have chickens and guinea pigs in the Nursery playground, we feel good when they run over to us because we feed them our left over snack every day. The children learn how to care for animals, feeding them and keeping them clean, which in return helps promote certain social values and skills in children. Having pets supports a child by developing empathy and emotions.

We did some great work with our focused topic diversity, using all the different colours of Elma ……
