Welcome to Nursery!
Claire Blewett (Teacher), Gail Stringer (HLTA) & Cassie Holmes (TA).
We have based our learning around 'Water' this half term and have had great fun exploring how it changes from a solid to a liquid and vice versa! We found lots of different shaped containers to fill with water and have added animals, gems, food colouring and glitter.
Some children were able to handle the ice for a long period of times - others preferred to watch from the side!
We haven't had many frosty days but we have looked around the outdoor areas and found ice a few times...
We have made cookies a few times, helping to develop and strengthen our fine motor skills. We have iced them for Valentines Day and for the Pirate Party. We have been really impressed with how good the children are getting at managing more intricate work.
We read stories and poems about the seas and oceans and our Pirate theme developed. This was really popular and has gripped lots of the children's imaginations. We know the names of the areas of the boat from our Port and Starboard game in PE, we have learned about coordinates on treasure maps and we are good at saying some Pirate phrases!! Of course, we can also walk the plank with confidence!
Everyday we look at the calendar and weather and change the date. We have been thinking about different flowers which appear in different seasons and have planted some daffodil bulbs ready for them to flower in March, hopefully! They will make lovely gifts - watch this space!
Finally, as you can see, we are expect noodle eaters. We have really enjoyed our activities around the Chinese New Year, tasting noodles, and prawn crackers and have some wonderful paintings of pigs hanging in Nursery.
We've had a very busy and productive half term!
