This week we have been learning about Chinese New Year. We learnt that it is the Year of the Rat. To celebrate Chinese New Year people clean their houses, put up decorations, eat special food and receive red envelopes with money inside. Sometimes people will watch dragon or lion dances and have fireworks. In Nursery we made Chinese Lanterns and dancing dragons. We made a large dragon head and used it to do a Dragon Dance for our grown-ups. We tasted some prawn crackers, noodles and spring rolls. In Funky Fingers we tried to pick up pom poms using chopsticks. We wrote Chinese numbers in red sand and we danced to Chinese music.
Our number of the week was number 4.
Outside this week we have a new garage role-play area – the children enjoyed being mechanics.

Last week we went on a walk of our local area. We have made a small world of our local area. Our story was the Three Little Pigs and the children LOVED retelling the story using the props. Our number was 3. Our nursery rhymes were The Grand Old Duke of York and 5 Little Ducks. We've been mark making in shaving foam, making houses in the playdough area and using a game on the IWB to practice hearing the initial sound in a word.
The pupils in the Nursery have been learning about Christianity and in particular the story of Noah and the Ark - Monday 25th- Friday 29th November 2019

Our nursery rhyme this week has been Humpty Dumpty. We have talked about who helps us when we have fallen or are poorly. The children have used our doctor’s and nurse’s kit to pretend to make each other better. Humpty Dumpty received a ‘Get Well Soon’ card. The children made their own cards for Humpty and for Mrs Hands, who has also been poorly this week.
On Friday we used eggs to make buns – they were delicious.
A skill we have been exploring this week has been using scissors to make snips in paper.
In Maths, we have been selecting a small number of cookies from a large plateful to give to Star Bear. He was very kind and shared his cookies with us at snack time!

1st October 2019- This week we have been looking at our faces. We have used mirrors and talked about what colour our hair and eyes are. We have also been encouraging the children to consider how they are similar to and different from their friends. With an adult we carefully painted a picture of our face. We have been making marks in sand, and we have introduced our water area. We had our first R.E. time – a special time when we think about God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. We are learning that God loves us and knows our name. We made listening ears and went on a listening walk.
Our rhymes this week have been ‘Ten Fingers’ and ‘If You’re Happy and You Know It’.
8th October 2019- We have been talking about our family. The children enjoyed sharing pictures of their family – thank you for sending them in or putting them on Tapestry. We have also begun to think about different feelings – we have identified feelings and children have been encouraged to talk about how they are feeling. We have also been exploring 2D shapes. The children have been sorting and naming 2D shapes. We have explored ‘gloop’ – it has been messy but fun! The children described it as ‘slimy’, ‘squishy’ and ‘soft’.
Our rhymes this week have been’1, 2, 3, 4, 5, Once I caught a fish alive’ and ‘I’ve Got a Body’.

Our nursery rhyme this week has been Incy Wincy Spider. We started our week talking about what we know about spiders. The children learnt that they have 8 legs and spin webs to catch flies on. We have been drawing spiders on the interactive whiteboard, and making spiders using playdough, pipe cleaners and googly eyes. We have used props and musical instruments to sing the rhyme.
