Who Stole the sun?!
For our first topic this half term, we will be learning all about light/dark, day/night. We will be looking at different light sources and investigating what happens when it is dark.
We will exploring the story of 'Whatever Next' and making our own props to support the telling of this story.
On Thursday in Nursery we made our very own hedgehogs! We started by learning all about nocturnal animals and looking at where they live. We then used the clay and mould our own hedgehogs, before then adding the spikes. The children were so engrossed with this task and all did their own version of a hedgehog. We are excited to paint these next week!
We then had a visit from Twiglet the Hedgehog who has set nursery a very important challenge for next week!
For our welly walk this week, we went on the hunt for some pictures. We had to find one picture each and then try and decide if it was a light source or not a light source. Nursery did amazing sorting and super coco collaborating!
Nursery had lots of fun in gymnastics this week.
They even remembered some of the specialist words they got taught last week!
This week in nursery we did our first story map.
The children did a super job at helping me to think of pictures to draw on our story map of 'Whatever Next' and then they were all very eager to have a try themselves!
Thank you to all of the grown-ups who made it to our stay and play session today. We hope you had as much fun as we did!
In preparation for our journey through our story today, Nursery started by making their own Jam sandwiches to take with us on the adventure!
Once upon a time there was a baby bear who decided he wanted to go to the moon.
"No, no, no, you can't go to the moon, you haven't got a rocket" said mummy bear.
Baby bear went on search for a rocket.
First he found a box!
Next he found a space helmet.
After that, he put on some space boots and got his teddy.
First, they bumped into an owl.
"Would you like to come with us to the moon?" asked baby bear
"Yes please" said the owl.
Away they flew.
Next, they had a picnic on the moon!
After that, baby bear got stuck in a storm!
Finally, Baby bear arrived home safely and had a nice warm bath before falling fast asleep.
'Whatever next?!' said mummy bear
Today we looked and identified a range of different shapes. We then use different shapes to draw some AMAZING rockets!
This week for our welly walk, we went on the hunt for our shadows. The children took it in turns to draw around their friends shadows. We then made our shadows make some funny dance moves.
The children in nursery used a variety of different shapes on the light box to make their own rocket. We talked about the different shapes we were using and they looked so pretty with the light shining through the colours.
Nursery learnt all about bonfire night and we spoke about how important it is to be safe spike. The children watched a video, listening and looking at different fireworks and how they light up the sky.
Nursery had a great time using the tape, scissors and paint to make their very own rocket to take them to space!
We are very excited for this journey!
Today when the big children went inside, nursery took over their playground! We had lots of fun doing races, playing catch and climbing on the climbing frame.
This week for our welly walk we went on the hunt for our names. We had a really good try, with a little help, at looking for the right one. We did a super job at this!
This week nursery were very excited to get stuck into our next topic. We read the story of 'Whatever Next' and are now learning to re-tell this with the use of pictures, objects and actions! This supports our Talk for Writing scheme (T4W)
Today we had our very first gymnastics lesson and we LOVED it!
Nursery got to stretch our bodies, move around on different levels in a variety of different ways and we even learnt and held some different positions.
Thank you Sarah, we can't wait until next week's lesson!
