Welcome to Nursery!
Claire Blewett (Teacher), Julie Atkinson (TA), Gail Stringer (HLTA) & Cassie Holmes (TA).
We have been outdoors a lot this half-term. Fortunately we have had some dry and sunny weather - even hot at times!
The garden is looking spectacular - our beans planted in jars when we were learning about Jack and the Beanstalk have now been transplanted into the garden, and are beginning to grow around and up canes. We have planted lots of other seeds and bedding plants, and the children are now busy watering and caring for them all every day.
We have carried on cooking and you can see from the photo that we made some very detailed flower biscuits. This helped us to learn the parts of a flower - leaves, stem, petals, stamen - and of course kneading, rolling and shaping the dough was good for our fine motor skills.
We have had some visitors into Nursery this half-term - Gamba Drumming came and provided us with a noisy, exciting workshop, using recycled materials. We all worked so well together to deliver a performance to our parents. We had to make sure our listening skills were tip top! The children have continued with drumming in the garden on these blue barrels. The results have been amazing - composing rhythms and copying them.... We are musicians!!
One of our parents who is a serving police officer came in to talk to the children about his job. The children were fascinated, and had lots of opportunities to try on his helmet, jackets, handcuffs, walkie talkie etc. The children drew some amazing representational drawings of these items after the visit.
Now we head into the final half-term of the Nursery year... we have lots more lovely things to look forward to!
