Wow have we really completed our first term in Nursery?? Yes we have! Congratulations on making it through tiredness, coughs and colds.
We have been exploring magnificent, marvellous me this week; we looked at our incredible skeleton and have been learning some words like skull, ribs, pelvis, hips, spine and ankle. We have been doing the Skeleton Dance too and looking at the story of Funny Bones. You can find lots of episodes on youtube if you want to share at home. Here are some links: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cfpk8QEhK1c www.youtube.com/watch?v=RNtqhiAwXVI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jpvuqj5nv6U (Skeleton Dance).
Our pictures show some of the ways we have discovered skeletons and what our amazing bodies can do in different spaces and places.
We wish you all a happy and safe holiday and will see you on Wednesday 4th November at 1.00 pm.
This week (8th October) we have been exploring times that are special to us - our birthdays. We are really proud that we are 3 and going to be 4 years old. We have celebrated Mr Bear's birthday by singing to him, making birthday crowns, cards and decorating cakes made of paper, playdough and on the lightbox. We have decorated real cakes to bring home and eat today. Please bring in your 20p to cover the cost of ingredients if you are able to, thank you.
Have a lovely Autumn weekend - see if you can collect some beautiful leaves which have fallen from the trees.
Remember to come to our curriculum afternoon next week - check your newsletter for details. We will be showing you all the amazing things we play with during the day and you can have a look through the Learning Diaries.
Celebrating Happy Birthday in so many different ways!
We have had a fabulous start to Maple Nursery and we love all our children already! We are brilliant at playing in our room and outside in our garden. We tried lunch for the first time today and really enjoyed our Friday fish fingers and chips and beans.
This week we have ......
splashed in the water and blown bubbles
dug for dinosaurs in the sand
painted with brushes and our hands
climbed up and down the loft stairs
read lots of books
built really curvy train tracks
ridden the rocking horse
balanced on the bikes
tried the stepping logs
visited the big playground upstairs when we heard the long fire bell (it was just a practice)
...... and learned how to use our Nursery bathroom!
See you all next week. Mrs Knights and Mrs Moral xx
23rd Sept - this week we have managed our lunches really well - Friday's hot dinner was especially popular! We are exploring our room and learning our different routines - we are always busy. We even climbed lots of steps to our new decking play and learning area outside. We loved it! And did lots of running and shouting.
Next week we are trying our 2 and a half days so gets lots of sleep every night.
