Please browse our page to see some of the wonderful things we have been doing in our Nursery class.
The Nursery have been looking 'Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See' as part of our 'Paint Me a Rainbow' Topic. We decided to see what it would be like to walk around like a bear and what we could feel with our feet. We decided to walk on different materials and textures and used our language skills to describe our experiences. We then had a turn at being blindfolded to guess what surface we were walking on. The children came out with some wonderful vocabulary and really enjoyed the sensory activity.
This week in Nursery we have been looking at Winnie the Witch and her magical colour changing spells. We wanted to try our own hand at magic so we decided to see what potions we could make. The children worked together in teams to collect different natural ingredients ready to make their spells. We talked about what we had found before adding the magic potion to make our spells come to life! Mr Nicklin and Mrs Whittaker have been turned into all sorts of things including jumping frogs, beautiful butterflies and devastating dragons!
Throughout the year Nursery will be looking at different topics which offer a huge range of learning opportunities and experiences.
The topics are as followed:
Autumn Term 1 - Paint Me a Rainbow (colours, settling in and being imaginative)
Autumn Term 2 - Rhyme Time (looking at literacy skills, rhyming and creative skills)
Spring Term 1 - Opposites
Spring Term 2 - To Grow or Not to Grow (looking at growth, healthy eating, plants)
Summer Term 1 - Are We There Yet? (Travel and transport)
Summer Term 2 - Once Upon a Time (Traditional Tales)
The Children have loved their first Welly Wednesday, enjoying the mud kitchen and exploring the outdoor environment. We're excited to get out and about each week to develop a wide range of skills and explore different learning opportunities outside of the classroom.
