Over the past two weeks nursery have been learning all about the number six. We have been learning to recognise and read the number, count objects to 6, recognise the number 6 in different arrays, what number is one less/one more than 6 and how we can make number 6 by putting smaller numbers together. We have also explored shapes, noticing that hexagons have six sides and cubes six faces.
We are becoming amazing mathematicians!
On Wednesday nursery went to Sea Life to begin our Under the Sea topic.
We saw fish, turtles, sharks and even a diver in the water. It was amazing! After dinner we went to the play area where we played in the ball pit.
It was really busy with lots of other children and adults, we really impressed our teachers with our amazing listening and following instructions. Well done to everyone!
This week we have been exploring small world play outdoors. We used our imaginations to create both everyday and fantasy worlds using the small toys. It was so much fun!
Small world helps us to:
+ play independently
+play with other children
+introduce a narrative to our play
+understand our emotions
+help our motor skills
+learn new vocabulary
+ have new experiences
Look at our amazing construction site!
Oh no...the dinosaurs are coming!
Class NC went to forest school this morning to hunt for minibeasts. We discussed what insects to look for and where we could find them. We took a clipboard and recorded our findings. We found a ladybird, a slug and lots of wiggly worms!
We had a fantastic time for British Science Week!
We were mesmerized by the Skittles experiment and how all the pretty rainbow colours created brilliant patterns when we poured water on them, (see our photos for the method if you'd like to try it at home!) Mr Mickelwright was greedy though and ate all the sweeties afterwards...
On Tuesday afternoon, Year 6 science leaders visited us to demonstrate 3 different experiments . NR's favourite was the finger printing ; we pressed or fingers into the ink then printed them on white paper and looked at the patterns, to work out which type of finger pattern we have.
Our Scientists of the Week were Malaika , Ali and Harsimran for their fab observations and questions. Thank you to Mrs Morrison for all the effort she put into Science week.
This term we have been learning all about Pirates and even became Pirates ourselves! A letter was left in our class telling us that treasure had been buried in Wilbraham and we had to use a treasure map to find it. We worked as a team, using our telescopes to search for the treasure and we had so much fun!
We found the treasure buried in the school's Pirate Ship and hanging on one of the trees! We then ate our chocolate coins back in the classroom. We enjoyed following the treasure map that much we even made our own treasure maps each using the pictures our journey.
What an amazing start to our Pirates and Princesses topic!
We started our topic by focusing on a familiar story, Rapunzel. We loved reading the story and really engaged with all of the learning opportunities available. Have a look below to see what we have been getting up to...
Look at our amazing acting skills! We used costumes and role-play masks to help us retell the story.
We made our own towers using the tyres outside. This also challenged our problem-solving skills as we had to work out how high we could stack the tyres so that we could still climb in.
We worked in small groups to make a story map. We talked about the characters in the story, the setting and the main events. We discussed what happened at the start, middle and end of the story so that Miss Carr and Miss Murphy could draw the pictures in the right order.
We explored length using Rapunzel's hair. We introduced the correct vocabulary ensuring that everybody was using long and short instead of big and small.
We hope you enjoyed looking through our pictures, as you can see we have been very busy in Nursery!
Over our past few Forest School sessions we've been investigating and learning about different features of the forest. So far we've explored;
+Bugs and Creepy Crawlies
So today ,Miss Rigby challenged us to find as many different bugs, birds and trees as we could and we showed her and Miss Aldergazaly so that they could take photographs.
We're going to be making collages of all the interesting things we managed to find. Here are some of the photographs we took =)
We were lucky enough to go on a trip to see Santa Claus at the Trafford Centre. We got the mini bus with Miss McKenzie, Miss Hadfield and Mr Micklewright. We then went on a special journey through Peter Rabbit's house and met lots of characters.
We then decorated gingerbread trees and finally got to meet Father Christmas! It was very exciting, especially getting a special present from Santa.
We practised for our Christmas show all week. We had new songs to learn and hats and costumes to make. We had lots of fun singing in front of all of our parents and carers. Thank you to everyone who came to watch us, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
We had a Christmas party with our friends and family where we got to wear our Christmas hats and festive clothing. Thank you to everyone's food donations, we had lots of treats to eat! We also had a special visit from Father Christmas.
