We have a special corner of our classroom set up with 'curiosity cubes', which always contain something interesting for us to look at and talk about. At the moment we are looking at some potatoes which are 'chitting' (which means they are starting to sprout) before we plant them in our garden, a hyacinth bulb which is growing in water so we can see its roots, and a pea that we have planted in soil.
We've just had a new seating area put into our forest school area in the woods, and it just so happenned that the library van was visiting today. We got to show off our lovely new seat and benches to the man from the library, and he shared some stories with us!
We have been practising our observational drawing skills this week by painting some beautiful daffodils, and drawing some cartoon characters that we looked at on the screen.
A super happy Mother's Day to all of our parents and carers. We've been making some cards for the special people in our lives, we hope you like them!
This is our first week back in nursery following lockdown, we've been planting seeds, ordering numbers, sorting colours, doing some great balancing, using our amazing imaginations as well as welcoming new friends. Here are a few pictures of some of the things we've been doing.
I wonder if you can spot the Nursery grown ups amongst the masked readers, do you know what stories we are reading?
It's been a very different Spring Term for us in Nursery, but that doesn't mean there hasn't been lots and lots of amazing learning. Our families have worked so hard to provide fantastic learning opportunities, experiences and fun for their little ones at home, and we've done our best to support them along the way. Here are just a few of the photos that you have shared, thank you so much for working with us over this incredibly difficult period, and well done for making it through!
It's been so cold, but that doesn't mean that we can't have lots of fun outside. Those of us who have been lucky enough to be at school have been exploring the snow and the ice- we've made some ice decorations, and discovered that we can melt ice with snow.
Don't forget to check Tapestry for ideas for some lovely winter learning opportunities!
Look who came to see us at school! He's really busy at the moment, but he managed to find time to come and show us his sleigh and have a chat with us all.
Ahead of Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day, we have been making poppies in our class, to create a Remembrance dislay. Have a look at our amazing work!
