This has been another very busy week in Nursery, continuing to make new friends and enjoy both the indoor and outdoor learning environments. We are trying very hard to remember to “choose it, use it and put it away”. We are practising our sharing skills and taking turns during our play so much better this week, we’ll done everyone!
We showed off our ICT skills this week by logging onto our Purple Mash accounts and exploring the paint programme. Mrs Blakemore is really looking forward to looking at all our creations that we do at home.
This week some of our new starters helped Mrs Sanderson to make some play dough for us to explore next week. They really enjoyed adding all the ingredients and talked about the changes that happened from start to finish. I wonder what they will do with the play dough next week? We can’t wait to find out!
This week in Nursery we welcomed our new starters. It was great to meet them and our older children were amazing friends and helped the new children to explore all the different areas of Nursery.
It was a special week in school this week because it was “ Creative Week - The story of a Masterpiece” In the Early Years we focussed on the famous artist Paul Klee who once said “A drawing is simply a line going for a walk”. We used his masterpiece and the story inspired by his painting, “The Cat and the Bird” to be amazing artists ourselves.
We have had a fantastic first week back and all the children have been amazing getting back into our school routines. I am so proud of how grown up and independent the children have been coming into Nursery in a morning. The children have really enjoyed accessing both the indoor and outdoor provision with their friends. This week we read a beautiful story called “The Colour Monster”. The story helped us to explore our own feelings and emotions at different times of the day. Our core book this week was one of our favourites “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”. We loved joining in with the repeated words and talked about the foods we like to eat too. Each week we will try to learn a nursery rhyme and counting song. This week we sang Humpty Dumpty. We even learnt how to do Mankato new signing for this rhyme too. Our counting song this week was another favourite about 5 little ducks. Did you know that they like to swim away from the Mother duck?
