The Three Billy Goats Gruff. W/C 20/11/17

This week in Nursery we have enjoyed retelling the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff. We have spent lots of time learning about this story in our Three Billy Goats Gruff area; using masks and other props to support our learning. In the construction area we have been building bridges for the big bad troll to live underneath - if he has another bridge to live under he will leave the goats alone! We used different construction resources to build our bridges and worked with our friends to build.

Fluffy's Birthday W/C 6/11/17- 17/11/17

W/C 6/11/17 - This week in Nursery we have been preparing for Fluffy's fourth birthday. We have enjoyed making our own birthday cards and decorations for his party. We practiced writing our names inside our cards and used shape stamps and paint to make our decorations. We are really looking forward to his party next week! W/C 13/11/17 This week in Nursery we had two (yes two!) surprise parties for Fluffy. We wrote invitations to all our friends and enjoyed handing them out. At the parties we danced, played party games and sung 'Happy Birthday' to Fluffy. He blew out the number 4 candle on his cake and then he shared his chocolate cake with us. Yum! We have also been practicing our counting skills by counting out candles to stick onto a birthday cake. We practiced counting them with 1:1 correspondence and talked about what happened when the teacher took some candles away. Some of us also had a go at separating the candles in different ways.

Searching for Spiders (30/10/17-01/11/17)

This week in Nursery we celebrated Halloween. We enjoyed searching for spiders that were hidden inside pumpkins and we counted the spiders that we found. We had lots of fun finding the spiders but we did not like how the pumpkins smelt and felt!

We're going on a listening walk! (W/C 16/10/17)

This week in Nursery we read a story called the ‘Listening Walk’. We talked lots about the book and then we went on our own listening walk around the outside of Nursery. We heard lots of different sounds including: birds, trains, cars and the wind blowing the trees. We then used our special listening walk spoons/sticks to make our own sounds.

Working together to get the job done! (W/C 09/10/17)

This week in Nursery we have continued developing our team working skills. We have worked together to complete a number of challenges: shape matching, tower building and our favourite, the big draw! We enhanced the small world area by drawing our own small world environments. We drew tracks and roads for the trains and cars and fields and trees for the animals to play in.

The Star of the Zoo (W/C 02/10/17)

The Star of the Zoo is a story about animals working together as a team, to help put a star that has fallen into their zoo, back into the sky. This week in Nursery we have completed a challenge in the outdoor classroom which involved working together to transport water from one end of the classroom to the other. We really enjoyed this challenge. We have also loved playing with the Number Blocks in the maths area. We have been practicing our counting and recognising numerals.

Space: The Final Frontier (W/C 25/09/17)

Nursery received our special delivery from NASA which contained moon rocks, astronauts and underpants (!). We enjoyed exploring in moon dough, making stars in the play dough area and reading lots of stories about Space, we even made a rocket!

We enjoy learning everywhere! (W/C 18/09/17)

Throughout the year small groups of children take part in planned visits in the community. All children have the opportunity to take part in at least one small group visit during their time in Nursery. This week some of us visited our local ASDA. We talked about all the fantastic things we saw on our walk to ASDA, we posted some letters and we even got to buy some new books!

Some of our favourite activities from this week include: making potions in the water area, fruit picking, riding on the bikes, playing in the home corner and of course Dough Disco! We are looking forward to more friends joining us in Nursery over the next few weeks.
