This Week in the Nursery…

The morning provision have been very keen this week to measure anything they can get their hands on! From cars, to pencils and even drawing around each other and measuring who is the tallest and shortest in the class. During a PE activity, the children engaged well, matching the correct number of children to a hoop, they demonstrated excellent counting and problem solving skills. After showing a lot of interest in using our pretend cameras, we created a large frame for the children to dress up and take photos in! They thoroughly enjoyed this and used our ipad to take photos of each other.

The afternoon provision have been exploring colours this week, The children have been engaging in lots of colour matching activities during PE and Maths. During one of the sessions we went on a ‘colour walk’, the children used a checklist and marked off the different colours they could identify around the school. We were very lucky when the rain stopped (finally!) on Wednesday, a rainbow appeared outside! The children enjoyed looking at the rainbow and identifying the colours. We also had a special visit this week from one of our Nursery parents who is a fireman! the children talked all about fire safety and what to do in an emergency.

Both classes had the opportunity to visit ‘The Travelling Book Fair’ which has been at the school this week. The children chose books to look at then were read one of the stories. They all enjoyed the opportunity to look at lots of  new and different books and are very excited for the upcoming library trip!



This Week in the Nursery…

The morning class have been engaging in all sorts of spooktacular activities this week such as dressing up as witches, werewolves and bats and even made a magical potion! They have also shown a lot of interest in reading the story ‘Bear Snores On’ so they worked as a team to make a cave which they sat in to read the story together. Yoga has also proven to be very popular this week. The children were engaged and followed the instructions well while watching a Moana yoga video.

The afternoon class have been engaging in a lot of ‘messy play’ this week including activities such as mark making in  flour and painting outdoors on a huge sheet of paper! They have also been expressing their ideas for PE lessons, so this week we gave the children the opportunity to choose what they would like to do, the children chose, gymnastics, football and Yoga.
