What a busy week we have had in Nursery and what fun we have had!
We have been thinking about the letters in our name and thinking about rhyming words. For example, we have had lots of fun working out what rhymes with ‘cat’ – we thought ‘mat’. Did you know ‘Bain’ ( as in Mrs Bain) rhymes with ‘train’?
In our Literacy and on ‘No Pens Wednesday’ this week we have been using letters on stones to spell out our name and using cooked spaghetti to make the letters in our names – a really fun and easy activity to try at home.
In Child Initiated Learning we decided to put the toy cars and animals away and instead this week the children have been in the sandpit and playing with the water wall (don’t worry we had aprons on and we used warm water – as it was a little cold outside some days!) Outside we also had a hunt for our number of the week – number 4. It was hiding in lots of places in the outside space – some children also found the rouge number 5!
On Thursday afternoon in Child Initiated Learning a group of children thought they saw monsters in the woods! So we rolled with it, got our coats on, and the whole class tiptoed up to the woods to see if we could spy on them – one adult was told ‘be careful, you might get eaten if you get too close.’ -Thankfully on further questioning they confirmed that it wouldn’t be a good thing!
Until next time, do good looking for adventures, clean your ears out for good listening and turn your noggins (brains) on for good learning.
Take care stay safe, and enjoy the long weekend!
