Claires Court Maidenhead

from Nursery to Sixth Form

Mrs Wilding's Words Lent 9

Happy Mothering Sunday everybody!

The nursery children have enjoyed the topic about “Under the sea” and have experimented with blue and yellow paint and textured balls to make green puffer fish, been fishing with magnetic rods, played with small world sea creatures and learning their names and generally having a lot of fun with the topic. They have been very busy making cards and gifts for you for this Sunday, which I am sure you will love.

It has been a week of discovery. Life is in our pond again and seeing frogs, newts and spawn means that the life cycles are starting afresh.

Transition children have talked about floating and sinking and have carried out lots of experiments with different objects, trying to guess which would stay on top of the water and which would drop before trying the item in the water trough. They have discussed why this happens and have then cut out pictures and placed them on or below the water level in the picture. They have had lots of fun making flowers for you for this Sunday.

During the week commencing 12 March the nursery children will be learning about “Fun with water”, the colour purple, the number 9 and the letter e. Any small toys incorporating these would be ideal as their “Show and Tell” item this week. Transition children will be learning about “Easter” and the letters v,w.  


  • Cold Cookery on Wednesday afternoon we see us making fruit crumbles using yogurt, digestive biscuits and fruit puree.
  • The playground focus will be obstacle courses.
  • For the Claires Court “Charities week”, commencing 12 March, the Nursery Department will be raffling a basket of child related goodies so please bring in some coins each morning (£1.00 per ticket or £5.00 for 10). Funds raised will be going to “Reubens Fight”, a dear little boy in our nursery who has neuroblastoma.
