Happy New Year from The Priory!

Here are a few special moments to share with you all from December 2017. (Click to enlarge). Happy New Year!  

Letters to Father Christmas

The children in Mornington House pre-school have been busy writing letters to Father Christmas. They used the phonics they have been learning to help them sound out words and tried hard to write independently. They took their letters to the local post box to send them off to Lapland! SaveSave

Pre-School Nativity Play at Mornington House

Sally read the story to the children lots of times so that they could really understand about the characters before they began acting.  The children put on a wonderful performance for their parents and sang some traditional songs and also new songs they had learned. They made jam tarts for all to enjoy after the […]

When the community calls…

Here at the Court House, Christmas is with us early.  We have been asked to support the Knowle Methodist Church with their ‘Christmas Tree Fayre’ by supplying a tree to replicate the Christmas story with the children. Lydia and Gemma have been busy building the foundation on the tree for the children to add their […]

Woodwork at The Priory

The children in preschool were excited to use real tools in nursery. With adult support the children engaged in this woodwork activity where they were able to show their independence.

World Food Day

Monday the 16th of October was World Food day, so here at the Priory, we invited all of the children and their families to make dishes to share with our friends here at nursery. All of the children enjoyed lots of delicious food, including German potato salad, hummus, tea cakes and crepes.

It’s great to know that this week our nursery chefs Dee at Mornington House, Lee-Ann at The Court House and Lauren at The Priory will use this fresh produce to […]

Autumn has arrived at the Priory

The Pre-School children enjoyed exploring natural leaves and conkers. The children were most fascinated by their spiky shells! We had big discussions about where conkers come from and why leaves change colour in Autumn. The children then placed the leaves and conkers on the weighing scales to see which was heavier. We all had great […]

The children in pre-school have been really enjoying learning all about the different letters and sounds in the alphabet. This week we have been learning all about the letter k. We have been very busy finding out which words start with this letter and have even made our very own kites to fly in this […]
