We made pancakes this week – YUM YUM!! The children had the choice of what they would like to put on their pancake, some had chocolate some had strawberries.
We have been exploring painting using pipettes – we carried out an experiment to see if we could make new colours. Lucy said “I’ve made purple”, she told me red and blue make purple. Charlotte said “I’ve made green”, she told me blue and yellow make green. We have also been exploring hammers, talking about how we keep ourselves save and others around us.
This week we have been focusing on superheroes. We made a mask and cape on Tuesday and became a superhero. On Thursday we made a lollystick superhero. Musical instruments have been a big interest. The children made their own drums using boxes and tubes and then went outside and used real instruments to make a marching band!
What a great week we have had!! Superhero week!!
We read Superhero Daisy – we talked about what superheroes do and what powers they might have. We made masks and capes and even had a race!! We also made superhero puppets using lolly sticks and material.
We went to the Hall Hill Farm. What a lovely day we had. We all were farmers for the day. We saw baby chicks; we held the rabbits and fed the lambs and goats. We walk around the farm and saw pigs and a peacock that showed us his beautiful feathers. We went on a tractor ride and first the day exploring the climbing frame.
We came back to nursery and build our very own farm using natural resources. We talk about what we get from animals and how important it is to look after them.
This week in the am and pm green group Milo’s Grandma came in and made chocolate chip cookies with the children. They were delicious!
This week we closely observed some tadpoles on the light box. We read a story about how they change into frogs, so the children check each day to see if there has been a change.
Lego has still been hugely popular so we got it out as a small group with some small world resources. We did some weeding on Thursday and collected some leaves for our new rabbit. It ate them straight away.
We have been exploring the block area. The children give their ideas of what we could build using the blocks then we voted for the best idea which was to build a haunted house to tell stories in. We hid under the material and used a torch to tell our stories. We chopped carrots for our new fluffy friend, who we will name next week. The children have been exploring play dough “making pancakes” – they flipped them in the pans.
This week the sun finally appeared so we have spent a lot of time outside in the garden. The children have all been sensible and kept their sun hats on, worn sun cream and helped themselves to water if they got hot.
Writing and Drawing is still a big interest so we carried out a large scale writing activity. Jools was really interested in the numbers and even wrote One Thousand! We also did a transient art activity, the children had their own bags with natural resources in and could make a picture of their choice. Some of them used the camera to take a picture of their piece of art.
Welcome back everyone!!
What a busy week we have had. We have explored shapes and numbers through mark making, Max said “I’ve made the number 4, I’m 4. I’ll be 5 on my next birthday”. We have used musical instruments this week; Lucy said “can we do the band again”. We had a boy band – they sang Twinkle Twinkle Chocolate Bar and the girls sang Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. We have also explored Forest School – it was lovely to be out in the sun shine. We used lots of water for filling and emptying, we painted the house and even had time for tasty strawberry milkshake.
This week the Green Room children got 2 fish to look after.Â The afternoon children voted to call their fish Tinkerbell.Â We have had a busy week; there is still a lot of interest in writing so we used chalkboards this week.Â We went to the block area and the children could use the large or small blocks.Â The children all chose to work in small groups and work together to build their creations.Â On Wednesday the children honed their fine motor skills by threading fruit onto skewers at the end they got to drizzle chocolate over them.Â Delicious!!
Lovely week in Green Room, we have been talking about Chinese New Year. We watched the dragon dance on the large screen then made a dragon so we could join in. We made masks of our favourite animal from the Chinese Story then had a race to see which animal was the fastest.
This week we have been focusing on Chinese New Year.Â The green group children made a dragonâs body and all of the nursery children joined in a dragon dance outside in the yard.Â We have made animal masks so we can have a race like the Chinese zodiac animals.
We also had a road safety talk.Â Dave our nursery puppet had been knocked over by a car so we talked about the importance of holding a grown-ups hand, looking and listening and walking across the road.
