We can say that the children have settled really well into the routines of the nursery class this week. They have confidently come into the class and participated in the fiddly fingers within their animal groups.
One of the activities the children have enjoyed outside has been playing with the shaving foam. Some of us have also enjoyed organising our own tea parties and riding on the bikes. One child even used the wooden blocks to create a model of Stonehenge and the Pyramids! This activity could be something you might want to try at home with your child using Lego bricks, dominoes or rocks and stones. Giving them building opportunities supports their fine and gross motor skills (depending on the size of the building tools) which will support their writing skills.
We have also been creating pictures using beautiful Autumn colours – red, orange, yellow and brown. You could try this activity at home using paints, coloured pencils or crayons. This builds their awareness of the changing seasons and expands their vocabulary when they describe what they’ve been doing, strengthening their observational skills.
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 Gavriel, Mrs Mitzman, Mrs Hill and Mrs Bence
