Faint O? How many? Can you count in Welsh all the way up to 10 like us?

Beebots! We have been learning how to programme a Beebot to move in different directions.

Signs of spring! Using magnifying glasses and our i pads, we looked in our Nursery garden for signs of spring.

A special Easter egg hunt! We needed to find the eggs with messages of God's love inside.

We have been working together to create an Easter Garden.

Parent Engagement Science Sessions - Let's build rockets! (morning session)

We were so proud of our designs that we wanted to photograph them using the iPads.

To make sure their journey into space was a comfortable one we also decided that they needed a chair to sit on. Have a look at our designs that we built and tested.

We are Super Scientists! Goldilocks needed our help. She sent a special message asking if we can help her to go into space with the three bears. We decided that she would need a rocket for her and the three bears. So we started by building 4 different sized rockets.

Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have been exploring tracing letters in oats, ordering different sized bears, chairs and beds for the bears, building a home for the three bears and sharing out porridge fairly for the bears. We have been busy!

St David's Day Celebrations

We went on a special visit to St Philip Evans Church. Father Gareth taught us alot about all the different artefacts inside the church.

Working together is better! All of us needed to shake the parachute to get the frog down the hole. It was hard work but we did it!

We have been learning our colours in Welsh and in English.

Police Week

Dentist Week


Last week we received a very important message from Dewi the Dragon from at the Welsh Assembly.



Hello St Philip Evans Nursery – I need your help. The children in Wales are not looking after their teeth very well.

Can we help all the children in Wales have healthier teeth?


The Nursery children decided they can be excellent role models. Firstly the children went on a QR code hunt outside and discovered all the ways in which they could help keep teeth healthy. 



The children experienced a whole week of learning all about how to keep our teeth healthy and the role of a dentist.

Learning activities included:

Mathematical Development – Counting teeth,  measuring amounts of toothpaste, ordering photographs of the tooth brushing process

Language, Literacy and Communication – Dentist role play, making an information video about teeth, tracing toothbrushes, writing with toothpaste, following picture instructions – how to brush your teeth correctly.


Personal, Social, Cultural and Well Being Development - Importance of tooth brushing, sorting healthy and unhealthy foods and drinks, playing Healthy and Unhealthy bingo game, health and hygiene, sharing healthy snacks and drinks together


Knowledge and Understanding of the World:

ICT – Using I Pads to scan QR codes, using I Pads to take a photograph of your friend’s teeth, using the I Pad to video the role play and information video, using the computers to sort healthy and unhealthy foods

Science – sorting healthy and unhealthy foods, investigating what happens when you mix fruit and milk together to make a healthy smoothie drink


Creative Development – painting with toothbrushes, making a mouth and teeth, singing the toothbrush song


Physical Development – using tweezers to pick up teeth and placing it on the mouth template, making teeth from white playdough, chopping fruit for the smoothie, brushing the baby’s teeth.



Winter and exploring ice

See how we celebrate!

Farm Week


This week we have been learning about animals that live on the farm. 


The children have made their own butter and spread it on a cracker to taste it! They also tasted other dairy products such as cream, cheese and milk. The children then made their own milkshakes. Take a look at the photographs below. They show the children shaking the cream to make the butter as well as the children tasting the dairy products.


We are now looking forward to meeting all the animals at Cefn Mably Farm next week as well as meeting Santa!
