Pip the Elf has finally arrived at nursery! He makes such a mess! Pip is going to be watching over us up to Christmas and making sure we are all on our best behaviour ready for Santa! Unfortunatly Pip keeps making a big mess in different areas of our classroom! He seems to be a little bit lonely and want to join in with all our play. We’ve all been helping by tidying up after him to show him how to play properly in our classroom!
We’ve been practicing mixing paints to make different colours. Some of us have taken this one step further and made every colour of the rainbow! They look absolutely amazing!
Today we enjoyed tasting some beans and spaghetti hoops on toast! We spent lots of time talking about how they are the same and how they are also different! We all sat at the table really nicely and tried the foods we were comfortable with. Some of us at every bit! An some of us just preferred to have the toast. Over all we all liked the spaghetti best!
Some of our children decided to work together to build something amazing! They all worked together as a team and really enjoyed play with the results of their hard work afterwards.
Today for cooking we each made our own pizza! They were so yummy! Our classroom smelt amazing! We first spread out the tomato on our pizza base, then we added the cheese and picked some toppings. We got to choose from ham, peppers, and sweetcorn. Some of us even had all 3! Then they were off in to the oven so we could enjoy them all together. So many children ate up every bit!
Everyone came to nursery in the most beautiful pudsey bear and spotty gear! We all looked fab and helped to raise a lot of money to help others.
We spent the day getting active dancing with Pudsey, we made our own Pudsey bear masks, and did some beautiful colouring!
For children of nursery age it is actually part of our curriculum to recognise familiar signs and logos! We don’t need to understand the letters to spot what it is. Such as Mcdonalds! We all know when we see that big yellow M it means Mcdonalds!
In nursery we have a display up with lots of logos we might see, do you recognise any of them?
It turns out the bear from our story was actually very friendly! He didn’t want to hurt anyone but in fact he just wanted to play. To show us just how nice he really is he brought some of his friends to school to play hide and seek with us! It was so much fun, we found 6 of them hiding around outside!
We had been having a little chat about different jams and what fruit they are made from so we decided to taste some! We tried Strawberry, blackberry, raspberry, and marmalade. Everyone tried a little bit of each jam on some bread and then we voted which was our favourite! Overall everyone really enjoyed the blackberry jam the most!
This week we have been learning all about Bonfire Night. We have been learnign about why we celebrate it and what we might do or see on Bonfire night. We watched some videos of amazing fireworks displays and shared stories with each other of the fireworks we had seen at home.
We really wanted to set off some fireworks at school so we could all see them together, sadly that would be a little too dangerous! So instead we made some beautiful firework pictures. We used watery icing sugar and bright paint to makes some magical firework art! We have them all hung up in nursery at the moment, they really brighten up the room!
