Gingerbread pizza

 

Nursery have been very busy this morning making pizzas in the shape of gingerbread men for our ‘Marvellous Me’ topic. We used tomato and herb pizza topping and cheese followed by chopped up peppers for the eyes, nose and mouth, one child even gave their gingerbread man eyebrows!

I am sure you’ll agree they look very tasty!

Gruff Learning

Today Nursery went on an exciting visit.

We went to Gruff Learning where we saw chickens, goats and an alpaca. We were able to feed the chickens and the goats and listen to the sounds they made.

We had lots of fun!

The Making of the Scarecrow

As we are currently enjoying our farmyard topic here in Nursery we decided that we wanted to make a scarecrow. We want the scarecrow to protect the lettuce we have planted.

We used a mixture of construction materials including sticks, newspaper and straw. The children picked all the clothes for our Scarecrow and decided where they wanted to place him in our outside area.

And the final product….

Yummy Chocolate Cake!

Carrying on from last week, Nursery looked at unhealthy foods. We decided as a class we wanted to make some chocolate cakes with chocolate chips!

We worked on our fine motor skills by mixing the mixture and we counted all our cake cases. We counted up to 20 cakes all together!

 

 

Nursery’s Healthy Week

This week Nursery have been looking at healthy and unhealthy foods. We started the week learning about how to look after our teeth and how long 2 minutes really is!

 

Today we decided we wanted to make healthy fruit kebabs. We talked about all the different colours, smells and textures of the fruit and then made our own fruit pattern. The best part was when we got to eat them!

 

Woodland Wednesday

Yesterday, Nursery used their maps to help them navigate their way around the forest. They found all the hidden animals from our talk for write story by using their super eyes and team work.

Once we had followed our maps and found all our animals we listened to story ‘What a Ladybird Heard’ making sure we asked lots of questions!

 

     

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!
