We were very lucky to have a visit from Zoolab this week. We were very excited to see the animals and handle them. We have some brave children in Nursery! 

 Our new topic for the Spring Term is called

 Battle of the Dinosaurs

 This project is all about the historical and scientific world of dinosaurs. Children will learn about the way they lived, when they lived and how they behaved. Children will learn how to move like dinosaurs and learn the mathematical language of big, small, tall and short when comparing different species. They will learn the names of dinosaurs and find out if they were meat eaters or plant eaters.

 During the topic the children will go on a dinosaur hunt and will see dinosaurs walking through our school using the I pads.

'Paws, Claws and Whiskers'

 

Cartoon Pictures Images 2013: Tiger Cartoon Pictures Free JCartoon ...

 

 

Our topic this term is ‘Paws, Claws and Whiskers’. We will be learning all about different animals and what makes them special. We will learn about where they make their homes, what they eat, what they like and don't like and most importantly which ones are our favourites! We will be learning through our own experiences and taking part in structured and independent activities in different environments to help us make our own decisions.

 Monday 14th November - Friday 18th November

 We came to Nursery on Friday with messy hair, hats and wigs to raise money for Children in Need. We had a surprise visit from Pudsey Bear too !

 Monday 7th November - Friday 11th November

 We have enjoyed listening to the story 'Can't You Sleep Little Bear' this week. Baby Bear was afraid of the dark but he soon learnt there was nothing to be afraid of as the moon and the stars were in the sky.

We have been choosing materials to collage shiny stars and we have looked after Baby Bear in our Home Corner.

We have been talking about our bedtime routines and helped Mrs Millward to get her teddy ready for bed. We have also bathed the baby dolls in our water tray!

 We even cut stars out of toast and we really enjoyed spreading the butter on them. We all enjoyed eating them too!

 We have had a very busy week in Nursery making bread mice. We made the dough and enjoyed rolling and squashing it to make the shape of a mouse.

We put them in the oven to cook and we hope you agree they were delicious to eat!

 We used paper plates to make mice for our Hickory Dickory Dock display. They look very cute running up the clock!

  We have a wonderful time every week with Rubicon Dance. It is always lots of fun and we love the parachute!

  We have been finding out all about cats this week. We have learnt about cats in our homes and big cats in the wild. We have  been sorting lions, tigers, leopards and cheetahs by looking at their patterns. We have also been making families and learnt that the babies are called cubs.

 Monday 26th September - Friday 30th September

 We have been very busy making biscuits in Nursery this week. Mrs Millward helped us to make the dough and we all had a turn at rolling it out and using our cat shaped cutter to cut out the biscuit.

 When they were all baked we used icing pens to draw faces complete with whiskers!

 They all looked wonderful and tasted delicious!

 Monday 19th September - Friday 23rd September

 We have been talking about our pets this week and painting pictures of them. If we didn't have a pet we painted a picture of a pet we would like to have. 

 We have been vets in our new role play area and we have been looking after all of the class pets!

 Monday 12th September - Friday 16th September

 We have had lots of fun in Nursery this week! Take a look at some of our activities inside our classroom and in our outdoor area. We have also been looking after some new friends who started Nursery this week.
