Our first half term has flown by, we have got to know our new environment and new friend. Our first topic has been
'All about me' and over the last few weeks we have been discovering what makes us unique, new beginnings, people who help us in our community, our feelings and managing them, our families, homes and what super hero powers are and what we can do with them. During this week we have been creating Autumn homes, making emergency vehicles, writing letters, learning about people who help us in an emergency and enjoying the great outdoors!
Thought for the week - Play is the work of childhood.
It has been so lovely getting to know the children and families of North Tawton school. Have a lovely half term everyone.

The evil pea has been up to no good! He tied up a poor carrot and celery stick to the window and then we found him in our counting jar on Wednesday morning. our activities this week have included Potato printing, cutting and drawing peas, making and squashing peas. After reading the story of the week 'Supertato' we discussed what super powers we might have and how we could save the day.....
"If I was Supertato and someone fell in the water I would save them"
"I would be a fly bird"
"I would be a car superhero and save everyone that crashed"
Thought of the week - It's a happy talent to know how to play
This week we have been building houses, making glasses with small construction, mark making on our new easel, caring for babies, creating our own colour Monsters and moving into a box house. We have also been reading the story 'Supertato' and talking about what super powers we might have. During forest school we have been working hard planting a willow tunnel, rope climbing and zip wire sliding!
Thought for the week - Play is the work of children, It's very serious stuff.
Have a lovely weekend,
The weather has been wet and windy this week but it hasn't stopped the little acorns from exploring outside. We have been tree rubbing, mud sliding, building Dinosaur houses and making mud cakes in the mud kitchen.
When the rain drops were to big we spent time inside the school hall using equipment to help us jump, crawl, roll and balance as well as enjoying new nursery toys that have been arriving throughout the week.
We are often outside doing forest school activities and do get very muddy! Wet weather clothes are very useful if you can bring them on your child's nursery sessions.
Thought for the week - Play is the highest form of research.
Enjoy the weekend,
