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!

We have had a VERY busy first week back in Nursery. We have really enjoyed playing in all the different areas; indoors and outdoors. 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.
