Monday 3rd June 2013 - Friday 7th June 2013

WELCOME BACK! We hope you have a relaxing half term holiday! This week we have been settling back into nursery life!
We played in the shaving foam and rummaged to find the hidden numbers. When we had found them we sang the 'Number Rhumba!' 



Mr Young came to Nursery and helped us with our threading! It was very tricky and we had to concentrate!



We also explored the light box and tried very hard to name all the colours! We made the world turn lots of different colours by putting them over our eyes! Imagine if our skin was green!!!!!!



We played in the beautiful sunshine too!
We return to school on Monday 3rd June 2013
Monday 20th May 2013 - Thursday 23rd May 2013
This week we have been looking after the cress that we have been growing! We remembered to water it every day. It grew and grew and grew! We can eat it at home during the holidays now!



We also had lots of fun dancing with Eleanor from Rubicon Dance! Look at us trying hard to make long shapes, short shapes, small shapes, big shapes, fast shapes and slowwwwwww shapes!

Tuesday 13th May 2013 - Friday 17th May 2013
This week we have been making cups with faces on! We have planted cress seeds in them so that they grow hair. WE MUST REMEMBER TO WATER THEM!
We made ladybird biscuits too using red icing and chocolate buttons! - They were yummy!

Monday 7th May 2013 - Friday 10th May 2013

This week we have been taking about 'size.' We used the playdough to make fat, thin, long, and short caterpillars. We also tried hard to recognise colours when we painted cups ready to grow cress, it was tricky because the cup kept moving - we were very messy!
We also learnt a new song this week called 'Mr Hapus ydw i.' We made happy and sad faces! Can you tell which face is which?
Monday 29th April 2013 - Friday 3rd May 2013
This week we have been practising our counting skills. We used lots of different coloured paint and 'dot' stampers. We stamped them on a big piece of paper and counted the dots! - We tried very hard!
We can count to 5 all by ourselves!

It was very sunny this week too! We enjoyed playing outside, look at us having fun!



Monday 22nd April 2013 - Friday 26th April 2013
This week we looked at lots of different ways that we can move our bodies. Minibeasts move in lots of different ways. We tried to wiggle across the floor like a caterpillar. Miss Newell helped us by playing with hula-hoops, we tried very hard!
We can really wiggle now!
We also read the story of 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' this week. We all listened very carefully. Did you  know that a caterpillar turns into a buterfly??

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Monday 15th April 2013 - Friday 19th April 2013
This week we have been practising our counting skills. We went on a minibeast hunt with Mrs Campbell. We counted the minibeasts that we found - it was hard because they kept running away! We also practised our counting in the water tray. We used nets and rods to catch all the fish. We counted them carefully! We tried very hard to count to 5!!



Monday 15th April 2013 - Friday 19th April 2013

This week we talked about our new topic called 'Round and Round the Garden.' All the grown-ups helped us to make a mind map of what we already know so that we can learn lots of new and exciting things. We thought about the colours that we see in the garden. We decided that we see green the most. Miss Newell helped us to learn how to say green in Welsh; we have been practising how to say 'gwyrdd.' We mixed lots of different shades of green together with our  hands and lots of different tools. - We got very messy! When our paintings were dry we used minibeast stampers to stamp lots of different colour minibeasts. Now we each have our own minibeast  garden!
