Science day

Today it was science day! We explored what happened when you put ingredients together. We had baking powder, shaving foam, food colouring and vinegar. We predicted what was going to happen. All the children watched in awe as the experiment happened. The children liked being mini scientist.

Celebrating world book day with year 6! Nursery were very lucky to have the year 6 children come to our class and read stories to them. All the children chose a book and the year 6 children read the one they brought as well as the children’s choice. It was lovely to see the oldest and youngest of the school coming together. All reading together!!

The three little pig

This week we have reading the story of ‘The Three little pigs’. The children have been role playing the story and making their own houses. We have also been learning about Numicon and its value against numbers.

Patterns!

This week in Nursery we have been busy exploring patterns! The children used shapes and colours to make repeating patterns…take a look at some of their amazing patterns below!

Please encourage your child to look at patterns in the environment and also practise making their own patterns – please email photos of them exploring patterns to eyfs@olsj.co.uk and we will share them in Nursery! Thank you.
