Welcome to Southey Tots
Class Teacher: Mrs Robinson
At Southey Green, we promise to provide our children with 6 unique experiences in each year group. We call these ‘Southey’s Super Six’. These tasks give our children something to look forward to each year and in places, provide an opportunity that the children may not have previously had.
Once Upon a time …
Our focus story in Southey Tots has been the Three Little Pigs. In March, the children have enjoyed going on a stick hunt to look for sticks to help us with our house building. We have explored building and sticking bricks together using wet sloppy sand outdoors and sandy shaving foam indoors. The children have pretended to be the big bad wolf. They have huffed and puffed to blow down towers and have blown bubbles in the water tray. The children have developed their control using hammers on our ‘tap tap board’. Below are some photographs from our play and learning around the story.
In January, we welcomed 12 new children alongside their families into our 2-3 nursery provision. The children have settled in brilliantly and our older children and their families have helped to make them feel very welcome. The children are growing in confidence and showing increasing independence when wanting to go off and explore our indoor and outdoor provision. Below are some photographs of the children playing and exploring across nursery.

Christmas Stay and Play
To celebrate the end of our Sparkle and Shine topic in Southey Tots we had a Christmas themed stay and play with parents. The number of parents and carers that joined us for the event amazed us and the children had a wonderful time. Children and parents were busy making reindeer food, Christmas cards, paper chains to hang, salt dough decorations for the tree and decorating stockings. Naturally, a lot of glitter was used to make our Christmas decorations really sparkle and shine! Thank you to everybody that joined us, we really appreciate all your support and involvement. Below are some photographs from the day. Thank you again.
During the month of October, we had lots of fun exploring inside the pumpkins. We could not wait to pull off the lid and peep inside the pumpkin. We used spoons to scoop out the seeds and had a go at chopping up the pumpkin with a knife. Inside nursery, we made our own smiley pumpkin faces in the playdough.
Busy Fingers ….
Wow! What a busy half term at nursery we have had! We have welcomed lots of new children and their families to our nursery this half term. I am so pleased the children have settled well and have enjoyed their first half term in Southey Tots. Thank you to all our families who have helped to support our children transitioning from home to nursery. The children have had lots of fun playing! Their fingers and bodies have been busy exploring lots of different activities, both indoors and outside in the garden. Below are some photographs from our first half term at nursery. Well Done to everybody, you have been amazing!
