Next, we have been learning about Diwali the festival of light.
We made our own Mendhi patterns drawing round our hands and creating beautiful patterns.
We listened to the Diwali story and learnt about Rama and Sita.
We made our own Divia lamps using clay and colourful gems.
We have enjoyed settling into nursery together this month and getting to know our new friends.
We have now started our new topic ‘All About Me’. We have been learning about our bodies and keeping our teeth healthy. We have been working together to create some fantastic large scale pieces of art on what we would like to be when we grow up.
June and July in Nursery
With the weather getting warmer, we have enjoyed playing outside in the front garden together.
We had our Speaking and Listening Event this month; the children were tour guides for their adults showing them all the exciting things they get to do at nursery both inside and outside.
April 2023 – Spring
We have been learning all about spring.
We went on a spring hunt around the school grounds and used our mixing skills to create pictures of daffodils.
At the end of the month, we went on our school trip to Standalone Farm.
We saw lots of different animals, enjoyed playing in the park and watching the Thomas trains.
March In Nursery – ‘Down on the Farm’
This month, we have been learning about ‘Down on the Farm’.
We have been busy painting pictures of farm animals – our new display in our cloakroom looks very good!
We have also had fun learning about the different animals that live on a farm and what their homes are called. We have also been learning about baby animals and used our funky fingers to make beautiful cards and gifts for Mother’s Day.
We have learnt so much this term and are looking forward to coming back after the Easter holidays, and going on our first school trip to a real farm!
February In Nursery – Opposites
We had lots of fun exploring opposites this month in nursery.
We were scientists exploring floating and sinking.
We created fantastic models of different types of transport and talked about the different ways they move.
We had lots of fun turning our role play area into space and went on lots of adventures in space.
We learnt how to use the weighing scales when we investigated heavy and light moon rocks.
We went on an opposites hunt round the school to see how many we could fine.
Chinese New Year
We have been learning about the celebration ‘Chinese New Year’.
We listened to the story of how the years became named after animals – this year is the Year of the Rabbit. We used our ordinal numbers to help us retell the story with our friends.
We used our funky fingers to make Chinese Lanterns; cutting the paper, sticking on the stars and streamers and stapling the edges together.
In our PE lessons, we used the ribbons to make some beautiful big patterns. We lined up together to create our own dragon dance.
Autumn Term 2 in Nursery
We have been very busy in our second term together in Nursery. We started our topic ‘The 3 billy goats gruff’ by looking at bridges and listening to the story on. Next, we moved on to thinking about what materials we could use to build a bridge and had ago ourselves building our own bridges to help the three Billy goats gruff.
After half terms, we started to get ourselves ready for our Christmas nativity. We practiced our songs every day at singing time and got dressed up to have our photo take. To help us understand the nativity we had many stories and activates out that helped us learning about the First Christmas.
After we performed our Christmas nativity our grown up, we started Christmas activities and got all festive for Christmas. We have been printing repeating patters on our wrapping paper, making reindeer food, to put out on Christmas Eve and many more activities that are festive.
As the weather has started to change, we had lots of fun playing in the snow and building snowmen.
We have had a very busy term and are looking forward to learning and exploring more when we come back after the Christmas holiday in 2023.
Autumn Term in Nursery
We have been very busy in our first term together in Nursery. We started our topic ‘All About Me’ by painting pictures of ourselves to decorate our cloakroom area. Next, we moved on to thinking about keeping our bodies healthy; learning about cleaning our teeth and starting our Brain Gym exercises.
We then talked about what we would like to be when we grow up and worked together in groups to create large collages of different jobs – can you guess what the jobs are?
Then, we looked at where we live; we talked about our own homes and what they look like and painted pictures of different types of homes to create our own town.
As the weather has started to change, we have begun to look at the season on autumn. We went on a welly walk to find signs of autumn and collected leaves to add to our memory cards. We listened to the story ‘The Scarecrows Wedding’ and worked together to create Betty and Harry as part of the whole schools Harvest celebration.
We used vegetables to create our printing pictures too.
We have had a very busy term and are looking forward to learning and exploring more when we come back after half term.
