Another week over already! Nursery children have been finding out all about animals that hibernate during the winter and where they might sleep. We have created leaf collages and threaded leaf bunting to decorate our windows. Some of the children have been spending time writing their names, enjoying moments together in our 'home corner' at the new light table, caring for our babies, and problem solving with new wooden construction.
Next Friday is Christmas Jumper Day (3rd December), all the children are welcome to come to Nursery dressed in something festive.
Thought of the week - "Children see magic because they look for it."
Happy Friday from the Early Years Team! :)
We have been very creative in Nursery this week. The children have made hedgehog paintings using forks instead of brushes, we mixed Autumn colours for free choice painting and on Thursday we made binoculars to use on a colour hunt around the school grounds visiting the Trim Trail once again.
During carpet times we have shared our thoughts about Autumn and learnt some new things.
What happens in Autumn...?
"The leaves have changed colours, yellow and orange, and brown leaves."
"It gets cold and the flowers don't come out. Some crunchy leaves."
"The leaves fall off and when the leaves fall off in the road a car comes along and they dance around and go whoosh!"
The end of the week has been fun filled with dressing up in aid of 'Children in Need' and lots of dancing!
Thought of the week - Learning can happen anywhere not just in the classroom.
Have a lovely weekend.
See you next week, Early Years Team :)
Friday again already! We have been enjoying playdough, Lego, magnetic construction, junk modelling and pencil drawing. This week to mark 'Remembrance Day' we created our own poppies using paint and made large poppy broaches with card, glue and tissue paper. - Thank you to everyone who contributed to the poppy appeal.
The outside learning space is slowly coming together, the children are very excited for the completion and we are all looking forward to getting back to our grass area.
Next Friday (19th November) is 'Children in Need' appeal, the children are welcome to come to nursery in a dressing up outfit and a money donation is welcome.
Thought of the week - If you see someone without a smile... give them one of yours :)
Have a nice weekend! EY Team...
Welcome back Acorns! It's been another busy week in EY. We have been finding out about Divali and why we have fireworks on November 5th. Divali is an five day celebration of light that is celebrated by the Hindu community around the world.
Throughout the week the children have made their own Diva's (candle holders) using clay as well as decorating them with glitter glue, they will come home with your child throughout next week. This afternoon we have tried a selection of Asian food. The children have also created wonderful 'Firework' paintings with toilet tubes and paint or pva glue and glitter while expressing such joy when telling us about the firework displays they have been to or are going to.
Our outside learning space is growing... Yay! We can't wait for it to be finished and start to enjoy it.
Quote of the week - "Play is our brains favourite way of learning."
Enjoy the fireworks display this weekend if you are heading out to see them, stay safe.
We look forward to seeing you next week!
The Early Years Team :)
