Welcome to the Nursery!
What an exciting end of year visit we had!
On Tuesday 18th June we went on our end of year visit to the Olympic park and explored the Tumbling Bay playground. We enjoyed going down the really fast slide, being chased along the wobbly bridge, and making sand castles in the enormous sandpit. Our day ended with a delicious picnic in the park with our parents and a nice walk around the park where we saw a family of ducks. It was a very fun day and we really enjoyed it!
Reading Day with our parents
Zoolab visited us on Wednesday 15th May
Tom from Zoolab came to visit nursery, he brought lots of his favourite pets for us to find out about. We met Peter the Giant African Snail, he has 10,000 teeth!
“He is so hard and so big!” said Abdulrahman touching his shell.
We met Arthur and Albert the millipedes. They have 112 legs and no teeth. Nailah held the millipede, she thinks they have twelve feet and decides that they feel like a hair brush. We saw Trevor the Australian Tree Frog. Trevor likes to live high up in the trees.
Araf said ‘Ooooh' when Trevor jumped high.
We met George a Fire Corn Snake. Did you know snakes use their tongues to smell?
We also met Harry and Ron the gerbils, they were small and had little whiskers. They were very friendly but we had to be careful because they like to bite!
This term we started our Shoppers project in nursery. Every week we take orders from all our friends in nursery, for what healthy food they want to eat at our snack table. We take our shopping bag, count and collect our money from the office and then set off into the local area to visit the shops. It is great for developing our language as the experience gives us lots to talk about.
This Week's Shoppers
Friday 29th March
To celebrate Mother's Day we had someone close to us join us in our nursery today. We decorated tasty cakes and gave hand massages as a lovely treat for that someone special.
Tuesday 19th March
Today we had our families in to visit nursery to share in our learning, as part of our Number Day. Our teachers had set up lots of different activities for our parents to play along side us and find out how we learn in school. What a lot of fun we had!
We loved dressing up as our favourite book characters for World book Day!
Some of us in nursery are enjoying using the ten frames to show what one more and one less than a number is. We can count the pegs to make sure that the correct number has been made and then add one more.
What a fantastic time we had mark making with our parents!
We had our parents into our Nursery to share in our very special mark making event to explore how we begin the journey from mark making to writing. There were a range of activities including playdough to strengthen our hand writing muscles, messy shaving foam to practice lots of different lines and shape patterns. We even came away with our own box of crayons to mark make at home!
This term has seen Nursery learn about Nursery Rhymes. We have been doing our best to sing a long and remember them as much as possible. The children have also spent time making Nursery Rhyme related crafts to go on our displays.
The start of the year has also meant settling children in to Nursery, establishing routines, and making friends. The children have spent time learning each other’s names and learning to play with other people. It has been a fun first few weeks!
