Week beginning the 17th of October

This week the children have been very busy sorting out piles of muddled up numbers into the correct order and carefully counting lines of dinosaurs.

On Tuesday the children made an apple cake using more of the apples that we picked from the tree on the school field.

They have been enjoying the dry weather and have been outside on the grass and the climbing equipment having fun and strengthening their muscles.

The children have also enjoyed taking part in listening games such as animal and environmental lotto.  They all could listen carefully and were able to name lots of the sounds that they heard.

Welcome to Nursery

We have had a very busy few weeks in nursery.  The children all seem settled and busy now.  They are beginning to make friends and they have enjoyed exploring the inside and outside areas.  We have visited the school apple tree and the children enjoyed picking the apples.  We baked some of the apples and tasted these at school.  We also made individual apple tarts which the children took home.  We are planning to make an apple cake next week.

Harvesting our carrots and the Teddy Bear Picnic

We wrote invitations to our teddies inviting them to a picnic on the school field.  We harvested the carrots we grew from seed and ate them at our teddy bear picnic.  We thought they were sweet and juicy.  We started our picnic with some teddy bear races then we sung the song ‘Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear turn around’.  After we ate our carrots and a fairy cake and listened to a teddy bear story.

Our Dinosaur Week

We created a foot the size of an actual T-Rex foot and  it was much longer and wider than our feet.  We thought of questions we would like to know answers to such as how tall was a T-Rex.  We investigated and found out who was the tallest child in nursery class.  Some children created Lego dinosaurs, drew dinosaur pictures and created dinosaur worlds.
