This week the children have been travelling the world with Barnaby Bear...

They have helped Barnaby to get ready for his travels by ironing his clothes and packing his suitcase.

The children have had a lot of fun finding out about the places that Barnaby visits like Edinburgh Castle and Sydney Harbour.

Work with Bears

User Rating:  / 1

We are still working on a topic all about bears. Some of our favourite bear stories are This is the Bear, We're Going on a Bear Hunt and Paddington!

We have been thinking particularly about the texture of bears and in our work have experimented with creating different textures using different media and tools.

We are particularly proud of our felt teddies that have all sorts of materials on them, We were able to make a long list of describing words such as: soft, bumpy, tickly and fluffy.

Nursery have had an absolutely fabulous first week back with a surprise visit from a special bear called Paddington. To celebrate his visit the children made his favourite snack of marmalade sandwiches... Paddington was kind enough to share these!

Our Bears Topic is going to be a good one, and the children have already made a good start with a science activity to find out which material is waterproof and best for Paddington's coat. Maybe you could ask them about what they found out?

We are still working really hard to develop our fine motor skills, in particular our writing.

Threading is a great way to develop fine motor skills too, and more fun if done with friends!

The children have also been "cooking."  Perhaps some porridge for Paddington?

We have had such fun this last week performing our play to our families and our friends, enjoying a disco and class parties.

We can't believe that the term is over as it has whizzed by, but we have had such a great time getting to know each other and beginning an exciting school journey... We have learned such a lot!!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all the parents and families of our children and many thanks for your ongoing support.

Parents Stay and Play!

Yesterday Nursery was even busier than usual as we welcomed parents to come in and work alongside their children to develop the children's fine motor skills.

We had a fantastic range of activities available for the children and parents to do. We hope that everyone enjoyed the day and will come again next time...                                              .Stay play 1 small

We have had fun using the Interactive White Board in our learning too.

In preparation for Christmas we have made clay Gingerbread Men that we are going to paint and decorate later, but that's a secret... Shhh!

Fun with Nursery Rhymes

This week all our learning has been centred around Nursery Rhymes. We have been hunting for spider webs, making walls for Humpty and making a mouse to run up our very own grandfather clock...

We learned all about positional vocabulary: The mouse is inside the clock, next to the clock, on the clock etc...

This week we have been celebrating Autumn in Nursery, and thinking about Diwali and Bonfire Night in particular!

We took a walk arond our fantastic school site and found plenty of Autumn treasures!

We have added these treasures to our overflowing Autumn display table in Nursery...

Thinking about all of the lovely vegetables that are harvested at this time of year and of what food would warm us up if we were chilly, we made some tasty vegetable soup and enjoyed it at snacktime.

We learned about the Hindu Festival of Lights- Diwali, and made our own lights using clay. These are very special and called Divas. We also tasted some delicious food that might be eaten during Diwali celebrations...

This week in Nursery we have been very busy meeting more Ten Town characters.

As Eric Eight is a snowman we used our science skills to investigate ice cubes in our water tray and even had a snowball fight!

The Ten Town website has continued to prove itself as a super resource. The children love using it to play games and to practise their numbers..

Our Ten Town work finished with a party where we shared not only milk and fruit, but biscuits too! We had a great sing song to all our Ten Town favourites.

 

Wonderful Numbers!

This week in Nursery we have stayed in Ten Town...

Our work has continued to focus on numbers and the children have met some interesting characters: Freddie Four, Fiona Five, Seal Six and Sir Seven.

We have had some fun dressing up as Sir Seven and practising bowing to KIng One seven times!

We have also loved using the Ten Town website to play games and to practise writing our sevens...

We are so good at writing numbers now that we can do them independently!

Our Nursery is looking very smart with all of the pictures of numbers that we completed at home with our mums and dads.

Next we we are going to visit Ten Town for the last time and are excited to find out who we will meet...

Welcome to Ten Town!

User Rating:  / 0

This week Nursery have been on an exciting visit to Ten Town which is an imaginary place where numbers live. The children have met with King One, Tommy Two and Thelma Three.

Many of our activities have been number based and we are delighted to see that the children are enthusiastic about numbers....

Zero pond small

Here the children are clearing out Zero Pond which is full of rubbish unlike our school pond, which we also visited.

King One small

The children enjoyed making crowns and dressing up like King One.

Tommy Two small

The children have been practising writing their numbers as often as they can - the Ten Town rhymes for each number help. Tommy Two is a difficult number to write, but saying "Hands round to knees, then straight across please" really helps.

Thelma Three small

Thelma Three tried to steal King One's jam tarts. We didn't do that... We made jam tarts instead!

Next week we are staying in Ten Town and meeting some more numbers. How exciting!
