On Monday 24th March we acted out the story 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' outside. The children went through the 'swishy swashy' grass and went through the 'thick, oozy mud' to the 'dark cave'. In the cave we found a 'real' bear!
The children had the opportunity to make pancakes using the kitchen area in main school.
The children collected sticks outside to role play making a campfire. They showed their stick collection to Mr L'aime who thought it would be a good opportunity for the children to experience a real campfire and learn about fire safety.
This term our topic will be 'Animals'. The children will be learning about different animals, their babies and where they live.
Our role-play area will be a Vets surgery and in the home corner we will be caring for babies and dressing up in multicultural clothing.
For our topic about animals we have had lots of visits from different animals we can keep as pets.
The nursery children have enjoyed learning about the celebration of Chinese New Year. We shared the story of why each new year is named after a different animal and that this new year is named after the horse. We watched a video of a dancing Chinese Dragon, had a go in P.E. at being a Chinese Dragon and then made our own Dragons for a special display in nursery. We practised writing our names on Chinese lanterns and Mrs Stott made us some yummy Chinese food to taste. We had noodles, prawn crackers and fortune cookies!
A lot of our learning is outdoors so please ensure your child has appropriate footwear and always bring a coat. We try to explore outside whatever the weather! In winter please bring a warm coat and wellies and in summer you need to apply sun cream at home and bring a sun hat to nursery.
We bake tasty treats every Friday. The child will take turns over the half term to bake. Please don't forget to pay your £2 baking money every half term. The children will take it in turns to help. They will bring home what they have made at library time. There is a baking file with photo's of what the children have made and the children who's turn it was to bake, please take a look!
