Grange Primary School

Grow, Persevere, Succeed. Be the best you can be!

Term 1




This term we were luck enough to have an afternoon parent with a LOT of pets. Masons dad was kind enough to bring in some creatures for us to handle! 


We were also visited by some other creatures - have a look and see what we handled! 

Our visit to the woods with the West View Project


On 3rd October, we were excited to go on a mini beast hunt in Wynyard Woods. We had a story before going in search of our own caterpillars, spiders and other creatures. Look at the pictures to see what we found. 

Festivals and celebrations


As we always have plenty to celebrate at Christmas time, nursery decided to find out what people around the world celebrate including people of other faiths. 


We have made artefacts and played with objects related to Halloween, Remembrance Day, Chaing May Lantern festival and Pushkar, an Indian festival in which camels are celebrated! Check out our photographs but more so our environment, for evidence of our learning and exploration. 

Understanding the world - exploring which materials allow light to pass through. What shall we use to make lanterns?

Lantern making with materials chosen from investigation.


please send any photos you may have to share


This year, we are straying from tradition a little and having a topic related Christmas celebration. 


​​​​​​​As we have been exploring mini beasts all term, we thought it only right to celebrate reflecting the creatures that have inspired us for the term. A big thank you to parents that have already brought contributions for costumes - we look forward to sharing our singing and performing with you all on Monday December 4th
