Today in Nursery the children dropped humpty dumpty and tried protect him from cracking!
Which material stopped the eggs from cracking? Why?
This week Nursery have continued to develop their core muscles (stomach and lower back) ready for writing. We have challenged our self and tackled all new learning with a can do attitude. Can we do it – YES we can!
Nursery are on a mission to be ready to write! Today we continued to strengthen our shoulders and core, essential skills for writers. In teams we relayed tyres back and forth using both our hands.
Nursery, how is this helping us as writers?
In Nursery we continue to develop our gross motor skills and core strength ready for us to be story writers when we move to Reception.
Today we focussed on core strength by challenging the children to write with a pen between their toes! It got even more challenging when they had a pen in each foot.
Nursery what was the best bit about writing with your feet?
Over the last few weeks Nursery have become increasingly interested in the evidence that spring is under way. We have been looking closely at blossoming trees and the many colourful flowers around school.
Using our science skills we have made careful observational drawings of what we have seen.
Today, Nursery developed their shoulder strength by taking on some tricky challenges. Using large rolls of paper the children were asked to draw shapes inside each other and then draw using both hands. The children embraced challenges with a positive attitude.
Next week we look forward to some more writing challenges!
This half term, Nursery’s learning has been inspired by Pirates Love Underpants. Today we went into the hall and retold the story.
Then we found the golden underpants and danced back to the boat.
Nursery, can you retell the story to your families at home?
