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!
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….
Yesterday, the Nursery children had a look through their learning journey here in Nursery. We talked about our favorite times in our class and how much we have all grown! We shared with our friends all our pictures and talked about what activities we want to do next in class.
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!
Yesterday Nursery had a special visitor, Spring Chicks!
We talked all about the chicks and learnt that they have beaks, wings and are born out of eggs!
Once we had learnt all about our chicks from looking at lots of books we even had a chance of holding them.
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!
