Each Nursery class takes a visit to forest school once a week. We love taking our learning outdoors and this week we explored tree rubbing and digging in the mud!
We took out some paper and crayons and explored what happened when we rubbed the crayons over the tree bark. We also took some leaves back with us to see what happened when we drew over the leafs. It made some lovely patterns!
As our topic is ‘celebrations’ we learnt all about Diwali, the festival of lights! We made some beautiful Rangoli patterns using transient art pieces and colourful pieces of paper. We also made our own Diya lamps using salt dough and paint. We were very proud of how these turned out and took them home with us!
Our story of the week...Pete the Cat !
We did lots of fun activities around our new story 'Pete the Cat'. We have been reading the story aloud lots of time so we can make up our own actions and repeat the words we know!
We even got to make some pizzas adding fruit from the story. We used chocolate spread for the mud and strawberries and blueberries for our topping. It was really yummy!
We also did some painting of the fruits from the story after we had taste tested them.
After voting for our favourite Nursery Rhyme last term, we decided to sing our own performance for our Mummy's and Daddy's to watch at home!
In our class we loved 'Incy Wincy Spider' and 'Twinkl Twinkl' the most so we made some spider hats and star wands to use in our performance.
Come and watch our beautiful singing below! It made Miss McKenzie very proud that you knew all the words and were so enthusiastic!
We hope you enjoy it and maybe you are able to sing this at home again!
Hello and welcome to Nursery!
We've had a fantastic (and busy! haha) few weeks settling all the children in, focusing on separating from parents and carers, making friends, learning eachother's names and explore our learning environments.
Thank you so much for all your patience with our new systems , it's been lovely to start to get to know you and your families.
A few things for next week ;
+ If your child is ready they will increase their hours to 8.45am -3pm . This is decided on a case by case basis to ensure that children are happily settled, so please speak to your child's teacher for individual clarity.
+ School dinners are back on hot meals for a week
+ Over the next couple of weeks we are going to be learning and talking about our families , so please bring in or email a family photo to your teacher (emails below)
Miss McKenzie firstname.lastname@example.org
Mrs Lindsay email@example.com
Miss Rigby l.rigby@wilbrahamprimary
We will use this blog to post announcements and , once all photo permissions are finalized, to post photos and comments about our learning :)
As always , please email your class teacher with any questions , we are always here to help.
I've attached our Autumn 1 Parent Info sheet, which details some of the things we will be exploring this term.
