Growing Fruit and Vegetables

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

We have been reading and retelling the story of Goldilocks at nursery. We have used a Talk for Writing story map to help us to retell the story in the correct order. We have also been listening to different versions of the story and talking about how they are different. We have enjoyed making and tasting porridge, just like Goldilocks!

The Easter bonnet parade will be in the main school playground after school on Friday 23rd March.

We hope to see you then!

A cold winters day.........

We went for a very frosty walk today. The children noticed that the ice had frozen in the water tray. They enjoyed breaking the ice up with their fingers. It felt very cold and wet. The children also enjoyed playing in Owl Class garden on the climbing frame.

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!

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!

Fireworks!!

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.
