Hi All,

We have had some fabuous events in Nursery over the last week. Yesterday some of our Mums and Dads came to play with us in Nursery for our Stay and Play session. It was very busy but lots of fun. We look forward to seeing more Mums and Dads at Friday Forest schools!. We have had two sessions on our balance bikes and we are getting better at our long bike rides. We loved dressing up for book week and enjoyed a great story from 'The Cat in the Hat'.

Under Sea fun...

User Rating:  / 1

Hi All,

We have all been very busy last week trying to decororate our role play and display boards for our new theme... 'Commotion in in the Ocean'. We have made a phonics whale. We worked as a team to stamp on the letters from the alphabet. We tried to find letters we recognised too.  We made some beautiful shells and starfish using some left over bubble wrap. Our wibbly wobbly jelly fish dangle abouve our heads in the roleplay. We explored 2D shapes to create our own sparkly sea creatures, Our undersea divers on our display look very familiar and finally we had time look at all our fabulous homework posters and read some of the books too.

We enjoyed finding out about Chinese New Year Cebrations in Nursery last week. We tried lots of new activities. Many of us were very brave and tasted some Chinese food. The prawn crackers were our favourites and we decided to have some for our snack time too. We enjoyed dressing up and visitingthe Chinese restaurant role play, some of us even practised holding chopsticks. We were busy in our blue tray cooking with Tia Ten. We also enjoyed dancing and making lots of beautiful crafts. Our finger print blossom trees looked so beautiful.

Happy New Year Everyone,

We thought we would pop on a few photos from our Christmas Party at the end of the Term for you to enjoy today.

We loved it when Father Christmas suprised us first thing and brought us all a lovely gift. We were all very brave and went to collect our present from him. He made lots of jokes and made us laugh.

Materials...

User Rating:  / 0

Hi All,

we have really enjoyed the Three Little Pigs story last week. we read it so many times we could retell lots of the story on our own. We had a really fun lesson on materials on Wednesday we used our sense of touch to sort a variety of objects in to hard and soft. We tried to think of other word to describe the materials too. Then we tried building the Three Pigs houses out of straw, sticks and bricks. We tried to blow them down our selves and then Mrs Edmunds Bg Bad Wolf Hair dryer had a go! It made us laugh when the straw and sticks blew down.

Colours, Shapes and Patterns in Nursery

User Rating:  / 2

We had a great time in our last two weeks of Atumn 1 finding out about colours, patterns and shapes with Elmer the Elephant and the Mr Men and Little Misses. We made colourful Elmers from an empty milk carton. Hunted for colours around our Nursery and outside. We made beautiful shape Elmers using the shape stamps and really enjoyed reading lots of Mr Men books and matching them by colour and shape. We made our own. We think they are fabulous. We were brillant at hunting for patterns and trying to copy them on Elephant masks and our whiteboards.

All About Me!

User Rating:  / 2

The children enjoyed finding out about themselves and their nursery friends for our All About Me topic over the past two weeks. The familiy photos were great motivators for our communication and language skills. We have been having fun doing some tasks Mums and Dads do about the house in our role plays. We really enjoyed thinking about our special numbers and how old we were. We explored our senses too, and thought of ways to keep our bodies healthy... the fruit kebabs were a real hit!

Dear All,

We had a great time doing Gruffalo activities last week inside and outside. Our favourites where making Gruffalo playdough models, cooking Gruffalo Crumble (blueberries for purple prickles), going on a Gruffalo hunt, making Gruffalo tea in the mud kitchen and creating our own Gruffalo's from clay and conkers. Hot chocolate in the outdoor classroom was a great end of week treat!
