We hope you enjoy looking at what we have been up to in Nursery.
Love Mrs Morledge and Miss Martin :)
Learning through stories - Our planning is closely linked to children’s interests. We try to link themes to stories. This term one of the stories which the children really responded too was The Gingerbread Man. Outdoors the children played together to act out the story. They used the pine cones and wooden logs to create their own Gingerbread Man. Miss Parlett showed the children how to make a gingerbread dough. We looked at a recipe and followed the instructions. The children worked together to create their own storybook.
Fire Engine Visit - This term we have been learning about people who help us. Our children were extremely excited when Arnold Fire Station Green Watch brought a fire engine to our school. The children listened carefully as the firefighter talked about the fire engine and all the tools which it carries. The children had the opportunity to climb and sit in the cabin, as well as holding the water hose. When the children returned to Nursery their imaginative play outside linked closely to the visit. They created their own water hose and played together to act out their own stories.
April/May 2018- We have enjoyed watching the tadpoles and learning all about their life cycle. We can't wait for them to turn into frogs!
What a great day we had today. We had lots of fun rolling our eggs. The decorated eggs looked fantastic!
Sports Relief 2018!
World Book Day today was fantastic! We loved seeing your outfits from different book characters. We read lots of stories on the carpet together.
We have been learning about Chinese New Year! Two parents kindly came in to tell us about their special celebration and brought fortune cookies for the children to try.
We had a brilliant time in the hall doing a drumming workshop! We sung different songs whilst we drummed along. The songs included; 1,2,3,4,5 Once I caught a fish alive, Down in the Jungle and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. We enjoyed making loud noises and quiet noises.
We've had a fantastic time in Nursery this week. We loved our Christmas party on Thursday. Jolly Jingles was so funny. We enjoyed playing party games and eating party nibbles. Father Christmas also came and left some presents. Yay! Thank you Father Christmas!
Look at our Santa faces! We look so funny!
We've enjoyed learning about people who help us!
