The morning provision have been exploring different quantities this week by taking part in different emptying and filling activities. The children used rice and lentils to fill different size containers and find which was the heaviest. They also filled buckets with sand and some with mud to compare the weights.
In the construction area, the children enjoyed making different size dinosaurs and dragons out of stickle bricks, they then used Duplo to create homes for them. This then turned into village of houses for dragons and dinosaurs!
The afternoon provision have been exploring shadows this week. We took full advantage of the sunshine this week and went onto the playground, the children got themselves into pairs and we drew around each others shadows. The following day we went for a walk around the school, looking to see if we could find any shadows.
The children have also shown an interest in looking in our small mirrors this week so we have also been looking at our reflections. We looked at our faces in the mirrors and drew our different emotions. This led onto us discussing feelings and emotions and what makes us feel them.
Both Provisions enjoyed sharing their ‘half term snapshot sheets’. They showed their pictures then answered questions from the other children such as ‘how did you get there?’ and ‘what was your favourite thing you did?’
On Friday, we celebrated St David’s Day in the Nursery. The children took part in different crafts such as making daffodils, drawing their own dragons, and making dragons with junk modelling materials.
