The children celebrated Shrove Tuesday. A small group of children went to the market to shop and buy the ingredients we needed. We then got to choose what we wanted on our pancakes – chocolate spread, jam, strawberry, banana or plain. We ate our pancakes. They were delicious!!!!
This week on Friday is St Valentines day. We have been very busy making our cards to the person we love. We decorated a heart using pink and red paint and we did the writing for inside the card using our name cards to help us. We also have been baking love heart biscuits which we have decorated. Hope you enjoy them!
This week we have been reading the story of The Three Billy Goats. We played in the sand and the tuff tray with the troll, bridge and goats. We have been building bridges out of different material.
In Maths, we have been exploring weight using different objects to weigh. We explored heavy and light using these objects, ranging from a big balloon to a small stone.
This week we have reading the story of Goldilocks and the three bears. We have been very busy this week making own own bears from college materials. We also made porridge and got to taste it. It was Delicious! In Maths, we were learning about size and ordering the bears according to size.
This week we continued to learn about Chinese new year and looked at the celebrations from the weekend. We made our own Chinese hats using paper, crayons and tissue paper, writing Chinese numbers on them before decorating. We also made Chinese lanterns using scissors to cut the lines. They are displayed all in our home corner alongside all the photos from our cooking.
This week in nursery we have been learning all about Chinese New year. We have been writing Chinese numbers and words. We also cooked lovely noddles with vegetables. All the children helped to cut up the vegetables and it was enjoyed by all!!!! Happy Chinese New Year every one!
This week we have been looking at winter. We looked at winter and what clothes we would need to wear. We made our own arctic pictures and develop a home for the arctic animals. We explored ice where our animals had got stuck. The children had to work out how to get the animals out so they could play with them again.
This morning the full time children had their Christmas dinner in the hall. There was Christmas music, crackers and lovely food. All the children enjoyed their dinner along with ice cream for desert!
Today we had our Christmas party to celebrate the end of our first term in nursery. The children ate lovely party food and finished with some dancing. The children had a great time and thank you to all the parents who sent in food.
Thank you to all the parents that stayed for our stay and play mornings. It was lovely to see you with your child sharing their me book and doing some Christmas Crafts. The children had a great time.
