This week we have been thinking about our senses. Did you smell the peppermint water we were playing with? We explored our sense of touch by playing with gloop and feeling and describing different textures. We also made big ears and went on a listening walk around the school. We heard lots of different sounds such as a train going past, a lorry reversing, dogs barking and birds singing. We met Ms Payne on our listening walk and she showed us her hearing aid that helps her to hear better.
We have had a lovely week this week. As part of our topic on Ourselves we have been thinking about our hair. We have all different styles and colours. Some have long or short, some have curly or straight hair. We have practiced cutting hair using spaghetti, make hair pictures and even have a hair dressers in the home corner. Come and have your hair done, we have some great hairdressers!
Thank you to all parents who came for our Curriculum Afternoon. It was great to see so many of you. We loved showing you all our work.
This week we have discovered the dressing up box! We had lots of fun dressing up as princesses and Bob the builder.
We have also been learning about food. We have made our favourite meals on paper plates. Have look at our amazing display outside the classroom. We also made toast. We spread our own butter and tried all sorts of toppings. We had strawberry jam, apricot jam, cream cheese and honey. Some of tried all of them together! It was delicious! Our favourite was strawberry jam.
We have had another fun week in Nursery. We stayed for lunch.We had hot school dinners or packed lunch and we ate it all up!
We also took part in the School Art Day on Wednesday. We were making pictures in the style of the Finnish design company Marimekko. We made huge flowers, trees on wall paper and blossom pictures.
Come and see our work at Art on The Hill on 1st October.
After the home visits last week it was lovely to see all the children in Nursery this week. We have been so busy exploring the Nursery inside and outside. We have been getting to know each other and making friends too!
