Teeny Tiny Things
This project has a Knowledge and Understanding of the World focus and enables children to explore details of both the natural and man-made world, using a range of methods and resources to observe things carefully.
Monday 7th May - Friday 11th May
We have been learning all about tiny seeds and flowers this week. We have made perfumes and potions with petals and we even explored flowers in ice!
We have used our magnifying glasses again to look at tiny details.
Monday 30th April - Friday 4th May
We were very excited to find a garden in Nursery! There was a little house and we wondered who lived in it. Every day there were more clues and we think it's a fairy garden! We have used our magnifying glasses to look for fairies but we haven't seen any yet, only traces of sparkling fairy dust!
Our new topic is
We have been learning about all things Welsh as we prepare to celebrate Saint David’s Day.
We have been practising our rolling and cutting skills making playdough Welsh cakes and we have painted some beautiful pictures of daffodils.
Monday 12th February - Friday 16th February
We have enjoyed learning about celebrating the Chinese New Year. We have tried to pick up rice with chopsticks, it was very tricky! We have learnt that the dragon is an important part of the celebrations and we have made our very own Chinese dragons too.
Monday 5th February - Friday 9th February
We have enjoyed acting out the roles of knights and princesses and telling stories using the characters in our castle.
We have been learning to recognise numbers on dragon feet and we had to count out the number of dragon eggs for each number. Nursery children are becoming very good at recognising numbers and counting!
Monday 29th January - Friday 2nd February
We have been building lots of towers and castles using different building blocks. We tried to build tall towers without them falling down and we counted the number of blocks we had used. We tried to build a taller tower than our friends and everyone wanted to build the tallest tower!
Glitter and Glow
Monday 16th October - Friday 20th October
Nursery had lots of fun making and eating bread this week. We listened to the story 'The Little Red Hen' where the other animals wouldn't help the hen to make bread but they all wanted to help her to eat it! All of the children were very good at helping Mrs Davis to make the bread and they all enjoyed eating it too!
Monday 9th October - Friday 13th October
We have planted beans and we are hoping they will grow into our very own beanstalks. Will they grow tall enough to reach the giant's castle in the clouds?
Monday 2nd October - Friday 6th October
We have been listening to the story 'Jack and the Beanstalk' and we have enjoyed doing beanstalk activities.
We practised our threading skills by threading green triangles onto pipe cleaners to make our very own beanstalks.
We enjoyed building a castle for the giant in the clouds. The clouds were mouldable foam which was very messy and good fun!
We have been baking in Nursery and made biscuits which we decorated in gold to look like the giant's bag of gold.
We are making a giant beanstalk in Nursery and everyone helped to paint leaves and draw the lines on them to improve pencil control.
Next week we are looking forward to planting our very own magic beans!!
Monday 25th September - Friday 29th September
We have been learning about vegetables this week. We used our senses to explore the vegetables in the builder's tray - the onion was very smelly and the broad beans were lying on a soft bed!
We made pictures by printing with the vegetables which was lots of fun.
Monday 18th September - Friday 22nd September
We have enjoyed listening to the story of The Gingerbread Man and we enjoyed making our own gingerbread men to eat! We hope they were tasty and didn't run away! We painted gingerbread men and counted out three buttons to stick on him.
We were very clever being able to retell the story using the story sack props. Nursery are becoming good story tellers!
Monday 11th September - Friday 15th September
We have all settled well into Nursery and we are happy to meet lots of new friends. We have enjoyed listening to the story of 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' and we have played with the bears in their cottage.
We made porridge for them which tasted 'just right' and we also enjoyed our nursery 'breakfasts' of toast and cereal!
