Children in Nursery learned about life cycles as they carefully observed chicks and ducklings hatching from their eggs. The children learned how to care for the babies, providing them with food, water and shelter. The children were thrilled when they watched their ducklings swimming for the first time in a tray of water!
Nursery have been looking at special days and how our families celebrate birthdays, Bonfire Night, Diwali and Christmas. We had fun at Kipper's birthday party, made patterns for Diwali, blew bubbles, painted fireworks and learnt about the Nativity story. It was a busy half term, we are more settled on the carpet, eager to learn and we have made close friendships.
On our first days in Nursery, we have explored the resources, learned the rules of the classroom and we have made friends.
We have been reading the book 'Here We Are', learning about space, planets and how wonderful Earth is. It showed us how important it is to be nice and look after each other. We have been building rockets, making aliens out of playdough and designing our own imaginary planet.
"My planet looks like Saturn!" Summya
"I have built the biggest rocket!" Murat
"My alien has got 3 eyes!" Ada
This week in Nursery we have been introducing our Talk for Writing text, Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We made porridge and then voted on whether or not we liked it. The children used the recipe to inform them of the steps. We cut up bananas and put them on as our topping. We had to be careful as the porridge was very HOT! Once we had tasted it we added our picture to our pictograph. We found out that most children in Nursery class like porridge!
