This week in Nursery we have been reading 'Bright Stanley'. We talked about how shadows are made and explored them in more detail during our Welly Wednesday. We practiced our writing skills by drawing around different shadows we could find or make.
Nursery have started their 'Fantastic Beasts' topic by finding dinosaur footprints on the playground! They measured how long the footprints were and recorded the length in hope that we could identify which dinosaur it might be. The children were especially great at touch counting and working in teams.
Nursery we have been looking at 'Brown Brown, Brown Bear, What Do You See?' We've pretended to be bears and walked barefoot on different surfaces. We used our vocabulary to help us describe textures and materials. We have also moved and played music in different ways to represent the different animals from the book.
