Nursery have some new visitors in class. They hatched on Tuesday and Wednesday. We are enjoying watching them grow. Next week we are looking forward to being able to hold them!
Holding the Chicks
Today we got to hold our chicks for the 1st time. The children used gentle kind hands.
The children in Nursery have had great fun trying to put the eggs in number order, they did fabulously well.
We also made a run for our chicks to play in, they loved having more space to run around in.
The Bad Tempered Ladybird
This week we have looked at the story ‘The Bad Tempered Ladybird’. We have done everything from: making ladybirds from paper plates, a bug hotel from paper, matching spots on the ladybird to numbers and sequencing the story.
The Hungry Caterpillar
This week we have been reading the story of The Hungry Caterpillar. As part of our maths work we have made our own caterpillars using 2D shapes with repeating patterns.
We’ve used the IWB with the nursery children to order numbers, they’ve created long caterpillars.
The weather has been beautiful this week so we’ve been enjoying our outdoor activities. Some of us have been exploring the outdoor play equipment whilst others have had fun building dens from crates and pouring water into containers.
As part of our topic on growing, we have been measuring sunflowers using bricks. The children did very well and demonstrated great skill building towers and accurate counting.
This is the work that nursery produced about our last topic on growth. We held chicks, we grew sunflowers, we made ladybirds, we counted different animals and we learnt the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. All the children did some amazing work.
As part of our topic on seaside we’ve been learning about beach safety. The children have been using their building skills to construct a chair for a lifeguard. We have also used our cutting skills to make our own beach safety flags.
Nursery have been investigating how many cups of water it takes to fill different sized containers and have ordered the containers from biggest to smallest.
