In the Nursery this week the morning class have been exploring the topic ‘Transport’ with the opportunity to engage in road safety role-play in the outdoor area, categorising transport types by land and engaging in transport themed listening activities.
They also got very messy washing the cars in the outdoor area and car painting.
The afternoon children have demonstrated a real interest in the story ‘Dear Zoo’ and have enjoyed participating in animal themed listening activities and singing songs. The children ‘wrote’ letters to the zoo to ask for a Nursery pet and were delighted when the postman sent them a puppy (just like in the story!) to visit for the day. Albert the dog was a popular member of the Nursery class and a fantastic opportunity for the children to learn about what a pet needs to be healthy.
Other activities this week have included a ‘Nature Scavenger Hunt’ following the children observing a squirrel in the Nursery outdoor area and lots of junk modelling in the art area.
