During Mental Health Week, we have been reading the story of The Colour Monster and describing our emotions. We have talked about what makes us happy, sad, and angry.
We loved the windy weather this week!
"It's like a magic rainbow!"
"It's like a birthday!"
"The wind is making it fly!"
We had so much fun looking for mini-beasts in the garden. We recorded how many we found using a tally chart, We have also been doing some caterpillar printing using kitchen rolls.
We have been investigating things that grow. We showed great concentration when drawing some flowers, We have also planted bulbs and are going watch carefully to see how they change over time.
It's been so lovely so see lots more children returning to the Nursery after lockdown. We have thoroughly enjoyed participating in Book Week. We enjoyed painting Elmer, went on a Bear Hunt, made potions for the witch from Room on the Broom and made houses for the Three Little Pigs.
We have been learning about Chinese New Year. We tried some chicken noodles, which were yummy. We tried to use chopsticks to eat them! We also ate prawn crackers
We had so much fun in the snow! We used paint to paint the snow and ice and did lots of snowball throwing! Lots of fun and laughter!
We made a den and tunnels with boxes and materials. We had hours of fun learning, also taking turns and negotiating space.
This week the children have had lots of fun making lots of different marks in the flour, using a variety of tools including brushes, cars and their fingers.
We used lots of loose parts to make poppies on Remembrance Day. We were amazing and also sat for a one minutes silence.
The children have been experimenting and exploring different textures fitting with our theme this term of dinosaurs. They have been trying to melt dinosaur eggs made of ice with dinosaurs inside. They experimented with using hot and cold water to try and melt them.
It has been lovely to see the nursery full of children again! The new children are settling in well, having fun and making new friends.
The children have been enjoying parachute games, especially jumping in the middle of the parachute and taking turns. They have also been demonstrating good balancing when walking a short distance with a cone on their head.
Some children have been enjoying singing outside. 5 Little Monkeys sitting in a tree is a firm favourite!
Some children have been enjoying learning how to skip. They have been good Collaborative Cats, sharing the ropes so everyone could have a turn.
The children have been practising their balance skills in PE, as well as exploring the different ways they can travel over the climbing frame.
