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!

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!

Nursery rockpools

Dear All,

We have been having such fun with our under the sea theme. Last week we found out about rockpools and hermit crabs. We did a lot of investigating with shells and rocks and used them in our maths activities for counting and making shapes and exploring patterns.

We have really enjoyed making a rockpool in a bottle. Choosing what to go in and filling it to the half way mark. If we listen carefully they even sound like the sea.

We have had a great start to our new Spring theme -Down in the Jungle...

We loved making animal hatas and painting our faces to look like a favourite jungle animal. We have talked alot about colours and patterns. Our fork lion pictures looked wonderful and we could do them all on our own! We have loved doing lots of other jungle activities too and our role play is as popular as ever.
