This Week in the Nursery…

The morning class have been using the interactive whiteboard to play different maths games, mainly shape identification games which the children have thoroughly enjoyed. They also had fun making and playing with play dough, cutting different shapes and making treats for a ‘tea party’. The literacy focus on Friday was the story ‘Miss Spiders’ Tea Party’ the children engaged well in lots of tea party and insect related activities such as making play dough cakes and a went to an insect tea party!

The afternoon class have been working very hard, practicing writing their names and identifying their initial letter sounds. The children have also had a whole class discussion about which foods are or are not healthy and grouped them into categories. They also had the chance to go on a bear hunt!

             

A Royal Celebration!

The children had a great time celebrating the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, there were many activities available such as making banners and bunting for the classroom, making their own crowns and designing cards and invitations! The sun was shining which made our lunchtime picnic even more enjoyable for the children as they sat on blankets and enjoyed lunch altogether outside on the field.

                  

This Week In the Nursery…

The morning children have really enjoyed playing with construction toys this week so were very excited to see a tray full of diggers, mud and sand where they all engaged and helped each other to build different structures. They have also shown a keen interest in making and using maps so this week some of the children had the opportunity to go on a hunt for some of the Nurserys’ toys which a naughty bear had hidden on the field! Sports Day is fast approaching and the children are continuing to practice and work hard to try and win the races.

The afternoon children have had fun watching volcanos and talking about what happens when a volcano erupts. There has been an increased interest in puppets and puppet shows so the children created their own puppets and made their own stories which they acted out. The children have also been showing off their literacy skills on a letter phonic hunt searching for different items beginning with different phonic sounds.

The morning class have taken full advantage of the sunshine and have been playing outside on the field with the parachute and making dens and wigwams! The children loved decorating them with blankets. They have also been showing off their maths skills by playing all sorts of number identification games such as matching number bees to number honey pots!

The afternoon class have also had fun outside chasing bubbles around the field and making treasure maps which they used outside. They have been showing off their creative side using play doh to make different shapes and made some play doh cakes for their teachers to enjoy!

The morning class have continued to wow us all with their musical talents, playing instruments and singing and dancing around the classroom. They also had great fun when they came in to find a shaving foam ‘ice cream factory’, they made lots of yummy looking treats! A few of the children set up a hopscotch on the carpet with mats which they enjoyed taking turns and hopping along.

 

The afternoon class have been using different ingredients to make magical potions, casting spells on all their friends. They have also been showing off their counting skills to see who could build the biggest towers out of different construction toys and counting the bricks. A huge box was brought to Nursery for junk modelling, the children were excited to see it and used it as a boat! Following the theme of Jack and the Beanstalk, the children read the story then planted their own bean which we look forward to seeing photos of as they grow.
