Bentinck Nursery - Summer 2018

Welcome to Bentinck Nursery.

We have lots of fun whilst we are learning in the Nursery.

Please look our photo's to see how the children are making friends and playing with each other.

Mrs Hartley - Retirement

Thank you to everyone for your lovely retirement cards and gifts.

I was very touched by your kindness. 

I wish you all a lovely summer holiday.


Hurray our Sunflowers are growing at last!  Are yours growing at home?


This week we are having fun. We have a 'Beach' in the Nursery and our home corner is a beach café.  We have made icecream cones.

Happy Eid

We celebrated Eid with a little party and the children told us how they celebrated Eid with their families.

This month we have been very happy to welcome

'Small Steps Big Change'

to Bentinck Nursery.

Small Steps Big Change (SSBC) is a programme of activities designed to give every child the best start in life.

So far we have had 2 sessions in the morning and we are looking forward to the children in the afternoon having a turn next week.

We have a few photographs of the children getting very excited as they play with the parachute.  Look out for parents joining in!


Summer Term

This term we will be talking about homes and the different rooms in our houses.

We will begin by looking at the story of The 3 Little Pigs.

We will also look at textures and what we use to build a house.



Nursery Free Choice

The children are learning to make friends and play together building with the blocks to make a hospital.

They are sharing books together and talking about 'Space.'

They are using their fine motor skills to balance marbles and clip the pegs on the boxes.

They are writing and drawing on the whiteboard.



This week we have been learning about fruit and had the stories of Handa's Surprise and Oliver's Fruit Salad.

We enjoyed making fruit kebabs using bananas and pineapple chunks.

Look How Busy We have been ....

building with blocks, making toast, tasting porridge, singing, making pictures ...

Crazy Photographs

We hope you love our crazy photo's.

We chose a hat and an instrument to play and we stood in front of a 'Green Screen.'  Then we chose our favourite background.  Wow don't we look amazing.

The eggs have hatched!

We have enjoyed going to see the new Chicks that have hatched.  We have seven Chicks and they visited the Nursery yesterday.  We drew some fabulous pictures.
