Week beginning 11th March
This week we came into Nursery to discover dinosaur eggs! We explored them, looking through magnifying glasses and recording what we thought would be inside. In our key-worker groups we used our problem-solving skills to work out ways to hatch the eggs. They weren't easy! We also had some other dinosaur eggs which we have placed in water, thanks to a very kind Mummy. We are looking each day for changes. On Friday we noticed that the eggs had started to hatch! Our book of the week was called 'Three Little Dinosaur Egg Rescue'.
This week we have also been making dinosaurs using Duplo bricks and playdough and loose parts.
We also painted a picture of a dinosaur, looking carefully at the features.
Week beginning 4th March
On Tuesday we celebrated Shrove Tuesday. Together we made the pancake batter and then Mrs Llewellyn cooked the pancakes in a frying pan. We enjoyed eating them with lemon and sugar on. We read a story called 'The Runaway Pancake'.
On Thursday we celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as a book character and bringing our favourite books into Nursery.
We used 2D shapes to create our own shape dinosaurs.
We went on a walk around school to look for signs of Spring. We found blossom, daffodils, crocuses and we say the trees beginning to bud.
Week beginning 28th February
This week we have introduced our dinosaur topic through exploration of a dinosaur small world. The children have also enjoyed looking at information books about dinosaurs. We have been developing our speaking skills, trying to use 'and' and 'because' to extend our sentences as we have been talking about dinosaurs. We have also been singing nursery rhymes, creating patterns in sand and using our climbing frame to build our confidence in climbing and pulling ourselves up onto equipment.
In RE the children listened to the story about Jesus inviting the first disciples to follow him. We talked about who our friends are, and we thanked God for them.
