Today in Nursery we decided we wanted to make heart shaped biscuits. We talked about who we were making our biscuits for. Using our FMS we stirred the mixture and pressed the cutter to create the shape.
This week we have been celebrating Chinese New Year.
We started the week by having a Chinese Restaurant in our role play area.
On Monday we made Chinese Dragons using our paper folding skills.
On Tuesday we heard about the story of The Chinese Zodiac. This year it is Year of The Pig.
On Wednesday we wrote our own fortune cookie wishes.
On Friday we made vegetable stir fry with noodles. We even had a go at using chopsticks to eat them with.
Today we have been very busy in Nursery. Firstly, we heard the story about Smartie the penguin and talked about who we can see so that we are safe on the internet. We then coloured a picture of Smartie the penguin whilst discussing how to stay safe.
We then made red paper lanterns using our FMS for cutting and sticking. We discussed that this year was the year of the pig.
We have started our Talk for Writing story this week; The Gingerbread Man.
The children were hooked into the story by baking Gingerbread Men with Mrs Barnes last week.
This week we have looked at the front and back cover of the story to gather clues about the characters and setting of the story.
The children have used their computer skills controlling a mouse to draw a picture on a paint program of The Gingerbread Man.
