This week has been an extremely exciting week in Nursery. We have enjoyed being festive, putting up the Christmas tree and enjoying delicious hot chocolate after! We have also loved exploring the snow and seeing how it changed throughout the day. Thank you to everyone who supplied hats, scarves and appropriate footwear for the cold weather.
This week we have continued delving into our story ‘Whatever Next’ and studying space. We have blasted off to space and visited all the planets in our rocket together. Our focus this week in maths has been positional language. We have also been practicing writing our name on rockets and seeing which words rhyme. Why not have a go at seeing what rhymes in your house. E.g bed and head, leg and peg.

This week in Nursery has been so much fun! We have been reading ‘Whatever Next’ by Jill Murphy, hearing all about the amazing adventure Baby Bear had to the Moon. We have been learning about the different planets in Space and singing along to our new Space song. We have also been making rockets on the creative table using a range of different materials, learning how to draw teddy bears on our writing table and counting from 1-10 using our number rockets in our Maths area. We have even had the opportunity to discuss healthy and unhealthy food once we saw Baby Bear had taken a picnic to the moon with lots of different food.
We have also been excited this week as we have been able to see the Moon outside during the day. This enabled us to discuss all about day and night and the different animals we can see outside during night time. We even got to see a Hedgehog on a night vision camera, that was taken from Mrs Richard’s Dad’s back garden, how amazing!

Welcome back to all our children, parents and carers, we hope you had a restful half term and enjoyed the Halloween celebrations. We are happy to start off an exciting term ahead!
This week our exciting theme and mini topic has been BONFIRE NIGHT! During this time we have been learning all about Bonfire night and fire safety.
We have been getting creative and hands on making firework pictures and rockets, scooping pumpkins and having our very own bonfire stall. Using our small world fire station, we have rescued people and made marks in sparkles to develop our fine motor skills. These have been some of the wonderful things we have enjoyed this week.
During our focus groups we have been exploring 2D shapes, creating fantastic shape rockets. We have been following instructions to make chocolate finger sparklers! They tasted delicious. As well as this we have explored musical instruments and what sounds fireworks would make.
Take a look at what we have been learning below.
We hope you enjoy Bonfire night and look forward to hearing about it next week.
