Welcome to the Minpins page. Here you can see some of our displays and find out what we have been doing recently. We are a nursery and are taught by Miss Tiplday and Mrs Rounsvell with Mrs Williams and Mrs Hazeldine.

This half term we have been enjoying our topic ‘Let’s get Building’. We have been learning about builders, their job role and the tools they use. We loved finding out all about diggers and large machinery.

We have also been learning about the ‘Three Little Pigs’, building houses out of different materials and testing to see which makes the best house. We completed investigations with straw, sticks and bricks as well as lots of other materials such as jelly! We have learnt the story and enjoyed re telling it in our story corner with puppets and props.

Another highlight this half term has been having a police officer in to visit. He told us lots of information, showed us his police van and we even had a go at turning on the sirens!

Looking back at the Autumn Term: What a busy month. We’ve been learning all about light and dark and space. The children were fascinated to find out about planets and create pictures of other planets using chalk and paint.

We investigated shiny materials and explored the water tray with mirrors and shiny objects. We made a rocket with our wooden blocks and tyres and shot off into space!

Minpins have been learning all about light and dark which was timed very well with bonfire night! We created name rockets, firework flick paint pictures and used musical instruments to create firework sounds such as ‘whizz’, ‘pop’ and ‘bang’! We learnt all about Autumn and what happens at this lovely time of year.
