Barleyhurst Park Primary School, Open Day for prospective parents (pupils starting September 2023), 17th October 10:00am. Come and see how we learn!


The Nursery children have P.E with our sports coach with Martin each week, learning new skills and turn taking. The children loved being outside learning on the school field. 
The children used pine cones, peanut butter and bird seed to make our own bird feeders for our Nursery garden. The children carefully used plastic knives to spread the peanut butter and then rolled it in bird seed. We are waiting to see more birds in our garden. 
The children in Nursery made their own pizza snack. They had to listen really carefully to the adult's instructions to make the dough, spread the sauce over the base and sprinkle the cheese on the top. We baked the pizza for around 10 minutes, just in time for snack. 
In our specialist pirate stories week the children took part in lots of fun activities. We shared pirate stories in the hall with a breakfast, had a treasure hunt, learnt pirate songs, ate a pirate snack, made treasure maps and listened to the author Peter Bently read his pirate stories.  
As part of our Bonfire Night celebrations the children made pastry sparklers. They had to listen really carefully to the adult's instructions. We followed a recipe to make pastry and then once they were cooked we made icing and covered our pastry with the icing and sprinkles. It was a yummy snack.  
The children have been talking about our change of season, Autumn. We thought about how the outside looks different, our clothes change, what wildlife do and harvest time. The children peeled and chopped up the vegetables to create their own soup. It was delicious.! We had it for snack. 
In December our school had some special visitors.....Reindeers. The children spent 30 minutes looking at the reindeers, stroking them and listening really carefully to the farmer tell us about what they eat, where they live and how they help Father Christmas every Christmas Eve.
