Today the children enjoyed taking part in Freddie Fit! We had lots of fun dancing, stretching and moving to Christmas music!
A BIG well done to all of our nursery children for their beautiful singing in our Christmas Concert! They did an AMAZING job!! Thank you to all of the grown-ups that came to watch!
As our sound was 'd' this week, we had a special visit from a bearded dragon! One of our mummies brought 'Winnie the pooh' in to visit us, and we were very excited! The boys and girls asked lots of questions and some of the children even had a little touch! We then talked about the importance of washing our hands after touching animals. Thank you for bringing him in to visit!
Today in nursery, we got well and truly in the Christmas spirit! All of the children helped to decorate our tree! We have two elves that have come to stay in nursery with us called Rosie and Jim. Rosie and Jim will be setting the children a challenge to complete every day right up until we finish for Christmas! We were very excited to complete our challenge of making our tree look beautiful and colourful!
Today for our Welly Walk we went on the hunt for different textures. We used descriptive words to tell our friends what we could feel. We used words such as "hard", "soft", "cold", "bumpy", "spikey", "smooth". The children did an amazing job at finding different things and using their touch sense to think of a word.
For our welly walk this week we were learning all about size and whether things were bigger or smaller than our boys and girls. We stood next to a variety of different things and each other to see what was big and what was small. We did a great job at working together to find out the right answer!
This week the children were very excited to go into the big hall in the main school! We all had a very good go at taking our shoes and socks off on our own, or with our friends help, and got the mats out. The children had fun balancing, jumping and moving around in a range of different ways whilst keeping safe. We can't wait to do this again!
This week for our welly walk we went on the hunt for different images. We had to find one picture each and then decide whether it was a light source, or not a light source. The children did a brilliant job at sorting these out! We then went on the hunt in the classroom for different light sources! We found lots of them!
A big thank you to all of the parents who made it to our phonics stay and play session today! We hope you had as much fun as we did getting involved in all of our activities!
To finish our very exciting and colourful week learning all about Diwali and fireworks, the children made their own firework picture! They used different colours and a variety of different tools- toilet rolls, forks and a washing up brush to make beautiful marks on their page, followed by a sprinkle (or handful) of glitter!
We fully made the most of the rain this afternoon! We had lots of fun with powder paint!! The children chose a variety of different colours and sprinkled them all over our nursery playground! We then watched as the rain came down, the powder turning into paint and making beautiful patterns! It was very messy but lots of fun!!
Today we had a lady come in to talk to all of the children about keeping their teeth nice and clean. As our sound of the week is 't' this week, this fitted in perfectly as we learnt lots of words beginning with 't'! We learnt that to brush our teeth we need a toothbrush and toothpaste. We need to brush our teeth for two minutes, twice a day and that children have an average of twenty teeth, ten on the top and ten on the bottom!
