"Why is it white?"

This week in nursery we had snow!! We were so excited! We asked lots of brilliant questions like why is it white? And how did it get here? We went straight out to explore it and built 2 snowmen! We realised that if we roll a small ball of snow around eventually it picks up lots more snow and creates a giant ball! After this we noticed that the sun was coming out, some of us were so clever and said that this meant the snow would melt. We were super clever when we told Miss brown that when snow melts it turns to water! Although we were a tiny bit disappointed to see it go.

We enjoyed being outside a lot this week we were finding new ways to create obstacle courses. Some of us made extra challenging ones where we had to concentrate really hard to balance and go up and down steps and slopes!

Our first week back

 It was the first week back after Christmas and we were all so excited to be back at nursery! Before Christmas we read a book all about a little girl and three bears so this week we learned loads more all about this book! We impressed Miss brown with our story sequencing skills, we made up our own stories in the cottage, we explored painting bears and their fur with different tools, we had competitions on who could use their tweezers and pick up the most gummy bears out of the porridge and we especially loved sorting out the bears into small medium and big sizes.

At carpet time we felt like we knew they story so well we decided to listen to the sounds we could hear! We focused on Goldilocks as she was our favourite character most of us decided we could hear a 'g' sound so we all tried extra hard to see if we could then write the letter g we amazed all of the grown ups with what brilliant writers we all are.

We also met lots of new friends who will be starting nursery with us next week we loved meeting them all and didn't want them to leave! So now we're really excited for them to start on Monday!

Super stars

This week in nursery we've learned lots more about Christmas, we had our nativity show for the whole school and for our grown ups! We did brilliantly! We've also created our own unique Christmas cards to take home for our families.

We also went over to reception to share our Christmas party! We played lots of fun games such as musical bumps and pass the parcel we were very careful in pass the parcel making sure we only tore open one layer! We shared lots of food and showed our great manners. Someone special also came to visit us! Father Christmas was very busy so Mrs Claus and her elves came she gave us all a present! We were so excited.

"Dinosaurs have big feet"

This week in nursery we were learning all about dinosaurs! Our favourite experiment was when we froze our dinosaurs outside and got to hammer them back out again, it was so much fun! We were also curious about how big dinosaurs feet are, we made a huge foot print using our tape and printed our footprints inside to see how many of our feet we could fit inside!

We loved using our hammer shapes to make different patterns. We also loved building this week and made a humongous castle! This week we also learned a brand new story called journey and went on our own journey all around school. It was an extra special book as it had no pictures! We created our very own story to go along with the pictures, a book that no one else has ever read!

We've also loved practising for our nativity and we are doing sooo brilliantly remembering all of our songs! We also had a great time decorating our Christmas tree, were also having a Christmas craft morning/afternoon next Friday the 9th all parents are invited to come along and get creative! Reception parents also! I look forward to seeing you all then!

We come from all around the world!

This week at nursery we were learning about all around the world! Last week we all loved talking to our friends about where we come from and what languages we speak. This week we decided to learn a bit more about different countries, we explored different foods our favourite was the popadoms! We looked at our globe and guessed where we thought we were, we experimented with different arts. We had a good try at aboriginal where we used lots of dots, we made beautiful necklaces and even our own versions of the Eiffel Tower!

We made lots of hand prints to create our own friendship tree this was one of our favourite arts! We read Handas surprise it was a lovely book all about different fruits, the fruits got pinched by the cheeky animals along Handas trip we found this very funny.

It was also George's birthday this week! We had a big party for her with reception as well she was very kind and brought us all some special treats!

Next week we have decided we would like to learn more about dinosaurs!
