Colours, Shapes and Patterns

User Rating:  / 0

Hi All,

A fantastic two weeks finding out about colours, shape and patterns. We have been very busy painting, making, and creating in our craft areas using so many different colours patterns and textures in our work. The children have been learning lots of new vocabulary too.

The Mr Men and Little Misses helped us learn all about shapes. We went on a hunt around our Nursery looking for familiar shapes and if we spotted one we took a photo on the ipad. We have also been learning to use beebots -they were very popular. Mr Messy helped us with our mark making skills and pencil grip, we also enjoyed making a Mr Messy biscuit -yum! We are looking forward to learning about Diwali on Friday and doing enven more lovely patterns.

The Gruffalo

User Rating:  / 2

Hi All,

We have had a wonderful week with the Gruffalo and the other characters from the story. We have been busy making arts and crafts. Our shape characters look fabulous so we kept them for display! We also went on a Gruffalo hunt in our school woods. It was a bit scary and a bit exciting but we all enjoyed a soft Gruffalo hug when we found him. We have also been baking. Gruffalo Apple Crumble was delicious! Some we asked for more, whilst a few of us were very brave and had a tiny taste. In our cooking play tray ome of the children had a funny idea about how to use the mixing bowl.We have also enjoyed reading lots of different stories on our own or with a friend. We also had a visit to the play area builders yard. #We loved it!

Enjoy our photos.



Thank you to all those who came to the 'See My Nursery' and 'The Phonics' session. We hope they were both useful. Any questions let us know.

Living Things around our Nursery

User Rating:  / 0

We have had such fun in our first two weeks of finding out about Living Things. We have enjoyed finding out about the parts of a plant, planting our own sunflower seed, finding out how to look after it and watching it grow. The shoots have already come out. I wonder who's will be the tallest? We also collected plants and natural materials to make our own sculptures and patterns.

Mini beasts has been a favourite too. We loved hunting for minibeasts in Abigail's Garden with our maginifying glasses and making a model of our favourite mini beast out of clay. Digging for worms was also very popular!
