This term in Nursery our topic is Superheroes and People Who Help Us!
We felt very safe on our Entry Day as we were protected by Spiderman, Spidergirl, police officers, fire fighters and lots of other dressed up Nursery children.
We have opened a hairdressing salon in our role play area and we have lots of Nursery doctors applying bandages and giving medicines to everyone in the setting.
Nursery children also got to visit the newly hatched ducklings in Reception class. The children were delighted to see them crack open their egg shells and arrive into the world. The next time we went to visit them the ducklings were already swimming in a little water area! It was agreed they are very soft, fluffy and cute.
Awesome Animals in Nursery
This second part of the Spring term we have gone animal mad in Nursery!
The Nursery door is decorated in the theme of one of our favourite stories; Dear Zoo.
We have also been painting animal pictures and finding out more about wild animals.
We also celebrated World Book Day when the children dressed up as an animal or fairy tale character. Parents came in too. They listened to the children telling them the story, Dear Zoo, using 'Talk for Writing.'
But the highlight so far has been a visit from the Animal Man. He bought in a snake, frog, spider and an owl.
Autumn 2 has been full of magic. Our topic is Fantastic Fantasy. Cinderella has been our favourite story character. The children have had lots of fun dressing up as princesses.
Nursery have entered the festive spirit. Parents were invited to a Christmas craft session with their children. All the children had the opportunity to decorate the Nursery Christmas Tree and we all learnt and performed Christmas songs to sing to our families.
We have been very lucky this term to receive lots of new equipment and toys.
We have now got a set of new balance bikes or scooters. These have already proved popular with the children and are helping them develop their gross motor skills.
This half term our topic is Marvellous Me.
The books we have been sharing are The Three Little Pigs, The Gingerbread Man and lots of our favourite stories.
We have been singing Nursery Rhymes such as Incey Wincey Spider, Baa Baa Black Sheep and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
To celebrate Autumn we have been looking at conkers, acorns and Autumn leaves. We have joined in singing Dingle Dangle Scarecrow too.
Because our topic is about how amazing we all are we have talked about how we all look different from each other. We then painted self portraits.
Friday 26th October, Nursery will be having a Spooky Disco for the children. Children can come to Nursery dressed in a fancy dress costume of their choice.
