Mark Making Madness

Today in Nursery we have been super busy!

Whilst listening to classical music we drew on a large piece of paper how it made us feel. We talked to our friends if the music made us feel sad, happy or even excited.

We also talked about what colour crayon we would like and also how we should be holding it.

After we had drawn what the music made us feel we had to use our listening ears to listen to the instructions Miss Langford gave us!

We drew big circles and zigzag lines.

 

Easter Cooking!

Nursery have been very busy cooking up some lovely Easter treats! We worked on our physical development by stirring our treats and pouring the chocolate into the mold. We were very careful making sure that our chocolate went into the mold and not the table! We also picked the colour of our cases for our Easter nests.

Science Week

As this week is science week Nursery made some flying superheroes. We decided that we could use balloons and talked about if we blew the balloon up and let it go the superhero would fly. We then raced our flying superheroes to see who’s superhero went the furthest.

 

We have also been busy practicing our pencil grip and our writing for our new sensory area coming soon in our playground!

 

Nursery Spring Walk

This week Nursery have been looking at all things Spring!

We went on a Spring walk using our magnifying glasses and binoculars looking all around our school. We found lots of interesting things such as new flowers and ducks on the pond.

 

We then came inside and had a look at some flowers. We talked about how they smelt, what they felt like and the colours we could see. We were excellent at using our describing words!

Celebration Week In Nursery

This week Nursery have looked at all the celebrations that have happened throughout the week.

We firstly made pancakes on Tuesday and talked about how pancakes cook. We all had a go of shaking the pancake mix so that it was ready to cook.

We then picked our own healthy toppings for our pancakes.

Today we have looked at Valentines day. We made our own love heart biscuits where we all had a go of stirring the mixture and using the heart cutter to make our biscuits.

 

Road Safety Week

This week Nursery have been looking at road safety and how to stay safe on the roads.

The children have learnt that green means go, yellow means slow and red means stop.

We have also worked on our physical development by making traffic light jelly! We used our pouring and stirring skills whilst talking about how the jelly melted.

We also made our very own traffic lights where the children told us what each colour meant.

Jumping In The Puddles

This week Nursery have loved jumping and mark making in the puddles. We talked about all the different weather types and how we can use our mark making tools and the coloured water to decorate the playground.

The Nursery children were developing their physical development and communication and language skills during outside play. They enjoyed jumping in the puddles, making bubbles and mixing chalk with water to see how the water changed.

    

Woodland Wednesday

In Nursery we had a trip to the woodland area. We made sure that we put on our waterproofs and wellies so that we could really explore!

 

We found a variety of sticks that were all different sizes and collected them all to make a den for next week. We also looked at what colours we could see and discussed that soon it will be Spring.

 

 

We then came back to class and made our very own tree using the colours brown and green.

Back To Nursery!

The children in Nursery have been busy returning back to class after the Christmas break.

We started our week with the new children settling in and talking about our exciting Christmas break.

The children have been focusing on our new topic ‘Going Places’ by looking at different types of vehicles. This week our focus is cars so we have been painting pictures and playing in our very own car wash!

Shape Hunt

In Nursery the children have been learning all about the different 2D shapes.  The children went on a shape hunt around the school environment to see which shapes they could find.  The children found lots and lots!
