This week we have been recognising numerals 1 to 5!
How old am I? What number comes next? Can you sky write the number in the air? Can you count to that number?
We have been looking around our classroom to spot what numbers we can see. We then went on a number hunt outside to see if we could find numbers around the school. We took chalk with us so we could copy and practise writing these numbers on the floor outside.
We have had such fun celebrating Christmas in Nursery! We were so proud of our 'Stick Man' Christmas Show as it is one of the biggest performances we have done in Nursery and the children put in so much effort with their singing, acting and dancing skills!
We also enjoyed having parents for our 'Stay and Be Festive' morning and our Christmas party where we even had a surprise visit from Santa!
We hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and a happy New Year!

As our Nursery Christmas Show will be in a weeks time we have been practising lots with our acting and singing for the story 'Stick Man'! We know lots of the children have been singing the songs as home so below are the song links if you wish to practise with the children at home.
We cover all of different seasons in the show so they are not all Christmas songs!

The waves on the beach go up and down, up and down, up and down,

all day long.
The crabs on the beach go snap snap snap,
snap snap snap, snap snap snap,

The sand on the beach goes swish swish swish,

We hope you can come!
Last week NR took a trip to our School's Forest School to hunt for different types of leaves. Miss Rigby made a checklist for us to follow. We found Larch, Sycamore, Oak and Silver Birch Leaves on the floor and up on the trees.
When we found a leaf we had to compare it to the checklist to see which leaf matched. We then came back and made pictures using the different type of leaves we found!
This week NM took a trip to Aldi! We made a shopping list to write down the things we needed and we set off to the shops! We made sure that we all held hands with a partner and walked carefully over the road with our adults.
We then brought our food back to school and made 'Owl Toasts' as we have been learning about 'Night and Day' this week. It was so much fun and very yummy! We made sure to tell all our parents about how much fun we had.
This half term we will be learning about 'Light and Dark'.
Here is our topic sheet which explains all the areas we are going to be covering with our Nursery children over the next 7 weeks!
It would be great if Parents and children could continue this learning at home by practising writing their name with parents, cutting skills and playing with letters! If you have any access to the stories we are reading with the children you are welcome to re-read these with your children at home.
Also going on a shape hunt around the house and outdoors would be a fun activity with the children!

We celebrated Bonfire night in Nursery as we talked about how we can keep safe near a bonfire and fireworks and traditions! We talked about the different colours and shapes fireworks make and the different noises they make.
We even got to make our own fire work pictures using glue, salt and food colouring which was a lot of messy fun! We enjoyed making our own rockets and decorated them with different materials.
The school even put on our own firework show where we all went outside and watched the fireworks together. It was very loud and very colourful!
In our final week of term, Nursery hosted a Diwali 'Stay and Play' for parents. This meant all three classes got to participate in three different craft activities for Diwali and our Mum's and Dad's were able to join in!
We then went into the hall to share a Diwali buffet with food, treats and drinks for the parents, teachers and children! We also listened to some Diwali music, it was lots of fun!
Thank you to all the parents that kindly brought food and drink to share in Nursery and to everyone that attended our Diwali party!
