The children have really enjoyed the Frog Prince story this week. They have been using the puppets to retell the story to their peers and made wands to cast spells on one another. It has been lovely to see.
They have explored the soft blocks in our outdoor area and have used them to make a pirate ship. Whilst sailing in the ship they have made their own maps to show their destination.
The pumpkins and golf tees have been a big hit with the children this week. They have used the hammers with control to hit in the tees.
We have learned how to make gloop too; corn flour, water and food colouring. The children have explored how it changes from liquid to a solid. Fun but messy!
Our PE session was on the MUGA this week. We used the balls, bean bags and hurdles.
We started the week with a windy day so we made kites. The children explored how best to keep them in the air.
We had a new resource this week, Tap A Shape. It proved to be very popular with the children and they were able to master tacking the shapes to the cork board. They used the individual shapes to build pictures and talk about the shapes that they chose. We also searched for shapes in shredded paper and went on a shape hunt in our mud kitchen.
To finish off our week we had a Rosie the hen hunt outside. We had to search for 24 hens. We were very quick to find them and check we had collected them all.
Don’t forget to have a look at our Lending Library and try out a resource at home with your child. It is located in the Nursery entry way.
We welcomed our Grandparents in this week and enjoyed showing them the Nursery and spending time playing with them. The children then performed the rhyme, Five Little Speckled Frogs. Thank you for coming!
Our story next week is called, Tree, Seasons come, Seasons go by Britta Teekentrup as some of the children have been very curious about the months of the year.
Our rhymes are:
If anyone has any conkers, leaves or pine cones we would appreciate them for some of our activities next week. Thank you.
