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!
