Welcome to Nursery!
Nursery Teacher: Miss Bilas and Miss Widdison
This week the children have been creating story maps to remember the story of The Little Red Hen. They have also been kneading the dough and baking the bread.
There's been a rumble in the jungle! This week we have been drawing jungle animals and making parrots.
This week the children have been learning the story of Goldilocks and The Three Bears. They have made flapjacks using porridge oats, created bears out of paper, counted out spoonfuls of porridge and retold the story using the small world.
The Bad Tempered Ladybird helped us to count the right number of spots. We also made ladybirds from paper and followed the lines left by the Bad Tempered Ladybird to help with our pencil control.
A Commotion in the Ocean this week! The children have been making sea creatures using shapes, pegging the numbers on the jellyfish and making octopus from tubes.
The Three Billy Goats Gruff was this weeks focus and the children have been building bridges for the Billy Goats and they have been blow painting trolls.
The story this week was The Three Little Pigs. We have sequenced the story, made play dough pigs and built houses for the pigs to live in.
This week we have been reading the story Owl babies. We have made owl faces using rice cakes and counted using feathers.
This week the children have been learning the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. They have sequenced the story and made caterpillars out of tyres, egg cartons and bottle tops.
This week the children have been exploring the outdoor area looking at insects. They have been drawing insects and finding spaghetti worms in the water tray.
We have been learning all about animals and their young. Today we were lucky enough to get to meet some lambs. The children loved seeing them and were very excited that they got to stroke them. A massive thank you to Mr and Mrs Coombe for bringing them in to visit us.
World Book Day
For World Book Day the children created bookmarks, made their own mini books, read lots of different stories and drew pictures from their favourite books. The children loved dressing up as different book characters and enjoyed choosing a new book from the book swap. In the afternoon they were delighted to be able to share their new books with their parents and grandparents.
St. Piran's Day
The great had a great day celebrating St. Piran's day by dressing up in white, black and gold. They loved making Cornish flags and enjoyed learning all about St. Piran.
Exploring an ambulance!
Today we have been lucky enough to have a real ambulance come into school so that we can have a look at it. The children have loved their topic “Everyday Heroes” and this was the perfect way to end it. They enjoyed being lifted into the ambulance by the lift and then had a good look around inside of the ambulance and could see where everything was kept safe. They loved having the chance to try on the helmet and paramedic jacket- they have been role playing paramedics, doctors and nurses a lot throughout the topic so this was a really special treat for them. The children even got the chance to sit in the driver’s seat and sound the siren! We would like to say a massive thank you to Mr and Mrs Jones for bringing the ambulance in for us to explore.
Firefighters and Dentists
The last few weeks we have been learning all about firefighters and have just started learning about dentists. The children loved reading our story "Charlie the firefighter" each morning and have learnt about the important job that firefighters do. They loved putting out "fires" with water and dressing up as firefighters.
This week our focus has moved to dentists. The children have already learnt that they have milk or baby teeth and that these will fall out and adult teeth will grow in their place. They have enjoyed brushing giant teeth and making mouths full of teeth! They are really enjoying our topic "Everyday Heroes" and have learnt so much already, we can't wait to see what else they learn!
The children have settled well back into the Nursery routine after their Christmas break. Our new topic is called 'Everyday Heroes' and we will be learning all about people who help us on a daily basis. Our current focus is on Doctors and Nurses and the children have loved dressing up and diagnosing the adults! They have been learning all about skeletons and the different uses of some medical equipment.
Getting in the Christmas spirit!
Today in Nursery the children have been very excited as they have been decorating the Christmas tree ready for the coming weeks! They had a lovely time working together to decorate the tree and sang Christmas songs as they did it. They have also been making fudge ready to sell at the Christmas Fair.
This week we have been reading "The Gruffalo" and talking about the animals that live in the woods and forests. This morning we enjoyed making some "Gruffalo" crumble! The children were very good at listening to the instructions and took turns at mixing and pouring the ingredients in. They then knew that it had to go into the oven to cook. They loved having their crumble for snack.
