The Gingerbread Man
This week we have enjoyed reading the story of 'The Gingerbread Man'. The children have used a story map to retell the story.
We have been encouraging the children to remember the characters from the story. The have all learned the signs for the animals.
We're Going on a Bear Hunt....We're Going to Catch a Big One......
The children have enjoyed reading We're Going on a Bear Hunt this week. We have a 'Bear Hunt' role play area in the nursery, which the children have enjoyed exploring. We also went on a bear hunt. We had to climb over, under and through different apparatus in the hall. The children went through the swishy swashy grass, through the swirling whirling snowstorm and through the squelchy mud!
Christmas has begun at Puffins Nursery! The children have been making Christmas salt dough hands and clay snowmen. They are also enjoying decorating the Christmas tree and playing in the Christmas role play area.
Here are some pictures of the children having fun.
The children have enjoyed making toast this week at nursery. They used a knife to carefully spread the margarine and cut up their toast. Yum!
Lunchtime at Nursery
We love lunchtime at nursery! The children are getting very good at trying new foods. We encourage the children to use their knife and fork when eating. They are getting very good at it. They enjoy serving up their own vegetables and pouring their own drinks. Here are a few pictures of the children enjoying their lunch!
The children enjoyed talking about their experiences of fireworks. Some have been to watch them at Longleat or other local displays. We talked about the difference between night and day.
We used brushes and glitter to paint beautiful firework pictures. Nursery staff reminded the children of the colour STC signs and they enjoyed experimenting with mixing colours.
