This week in Nursery we have embraced the chilly weather and used it as an opportunity to practice our independence and organisation skills. The children are becoming very good at the sequence of using the toilet, taking off their shoes, putting on their coats, gloves, hats, mud suits and lastly their wellies. A lot to remember and an activity in itself. We use our five fingers to say our chant loo, shoes, coat, suit, boots. Once up in the forest the children enjoyed looking for foliage to make an Advent wreath. During fiddly fingers the children made candles to add to the wreath, rolling and sticking the card and stuffing tissue paper inside for the flame.
For Maths we have been learning about the number 10 and the children have really impressed us with selecting 10 items from a box, showing us 10 fingers and have also been learning to write number 10 on their bodies. During phonics we have been playing cross the river, the children have loved finding the matching object with the same rhyming sound. They are all very keen to have a turn and have been waiting very patiently for their turn.
The children have been busy making decorations for the Nursery classroom. We have made candy canes to hang on our seasons tree and paper chains. We enjoyed visiting the hall and hanging our decorations on the Christmas tree which sparked lots of excitement and conversations about Christmas time with our families.
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 and stay safe,
Mrs Howe, Mrs Ogilvie-Jones, Mrs Mitzman, Mrs Hill and Mrs Bence
