What a wonderful first full week Nursery have had. Exploring the outside, autumn walks, art focus day, PE, cooking in the home corner. Phew!- need the weekend to recharge so we can do it all again next week!
Today the children have spent their day focusing on different art skills and techniques. They found out information about the artist Van Gogh and his painting, Sunflowers and then used their new learnt skills to produce their own version of the famous painting.
Nursery have been staying for lunch this week to get a taster for what it will be like in September. Macaroni Cheese has been a particular favourite for the main course, followed by water melon.
After the disappointment of the eggs not hatching earlier on in the term, Nursery have been delighted to finally have the opportunity to have some ducklings visit. It has inspired them to draw picture of them and they’ve even named them, meet Rainbow, Rosie & Mr Duck.
Nursery this week are learning the meaning of the words, low and high. By making Cartesian divers, they combined maths with a bit of science. When the bottle was squeezed the diver dropped lower in the water and when the bottle was released, it floated back to the top. Once the bottles were made, the children spent time making their diver either higher or lower than their peers.
Nursery are learning the meaning of longer and shorter this week. Today they collected items from around the school grounds and compared their length. Then back in the classroom, they arranged all the natural items they had found from the shortest to the longest.
Nursery have been learning all about crossing the road safely today. They now know to ‘stop, look, listen and think’ and that it is always best to use a zebra crossing when crossing the road. They practised during independent learning time and then walked to the crossing outside school to use their new learned skills.
