The little red hen

This week in nursery we've been learning all about harvesting! We have done amazingly learning our Little red hen story ready for the harvest festival, we even decided to create a giant red hen to bring with us when we perform! We also had lots of fun this week creating our new book corner, Miss Brown added some story spoons to our shelves on Monday night and we loved them! We decided to create our own and add them to our book bus, we had a lot of fun re telling our favourite stories with them!

We also found a brilliant new book to read this week called we're going on a leaf hunt, we were so inspired by the book that we decided to go on our very our leaf hunt, we even had a surprise when we discovered lots of conkers as well as leaves!

We did lots of things that the little red hen told us she did in her story. We planted some corn, we watered the corn, we ground the corn and we even made bread! We were busy with pumpkins this week too! On Monday we used hammers and hammered golf tees into them we were very good at controlling our hammers. On Tuesday we explored what was inside of our pumpkins! Wednesday we decided to use the tweezers and pick all of the seeds out! By Thursday we were ready to draw our own faces onto the pumpkins!

"A real baby!?"

This week in nursery we were learning all about babies! We discovered some really interesting things and even got to meet a real life baby! Mrs underwood came to visit us with baby Bryn, we all thought he was sooooooo cute and he really inspired us to look after our babies in the nursery.

We were also really inspired to write this week, somebody magicked our names in the writing area! When we found out we couldn't wait to find our own names and see if we could copy them!

Next week we have decided we want to learn more about harvesting! This week Miss Brown told us a story she knew about a little red hen! We found it very catchy and have nearly learnt it all already! We even helped Miss Brown create our very own story map, we thought long and hard about the pictures we could use to remind ourselves how the story goes! Next week we will discover more about the little red hen and re tell our own versions!

Mad scientists!

This week in nursery we were learning all about science! We had lots of fun pretending to be mad scientists and experimented with lots of different materials. We coloured celery, found out how to create bubbles and ice. We also created a story map for our instructions on how to make ice, some of us even tried this at home!

We were so proud of our experiments!

We even had reception over in our garden to join in the fun! They were so helpful helping us dig for worms for our wormery! This week we have decided we want to learn more about babies..... I wonder if we'll have a special visitor?

Magic in Nursery!

Last week in nursery magic max had turned our nursery into a magic castle! We found a story bag when we came in on Monday, but there was only a frog inside! We then discovered a letter, it was from magic max! Throughout the week we learned a lot about potions and experimented with different textures and materials to try and come up with a magical potion to turn magic max back into a boy. Eventually one of our potions worked with a little help from our brilliant writing to magic max and we found him! He was hiding in our school! After all of our fun experimenting this week we decided we wanted to learn all about science! We've been having lots of fun mixing and creating different things. Keep looking for this weeks science photos!

Mini beasts and muddy puddles!


This week at nursery we were learning all about mini beasts! We went on bug hunts and found lots of different mini beasts we made sure we were extra careful when we held them! When we got back to nursery some of you wanted to create your own bug home so we used our scissor skills to cut some grass and our hedge to make lots of soft padding for our mini beasts! At the end of our very busy week of learning we all went to an ugly bug ball! We made special bug hats to wear to our ball and marched around our nursery, it was so much fun! We also explored some puddles outside on a very rainy Friday, we explored how we could change the colour of the puddles by adding paint and we also made some bubbly puddles with washing up liquid!

Next week you decided you wanted to learn about magic and music! I think Magic Max who lives in our nursery cupboard has come out to work some magic on our nursery see if you can spot him on Monday!

Our First Week in Nursery!

We have had a great first week in nursery! We learnt about all of our new friends and showed them around our nursery, we got to paint pictures of ourselves thinking about where our eyes are and what colour hair we have! We experimented with flour and water and made our own play dough we even changed the colour! At the end of the week we learnt all about our school logo and went on a school logo hunt around our school and found 13 logos! We also discovered that lots of bugs live in our nursery garden and decided that we would like to learn more about bugs next week. On Friday night our nursery was taken over by bugs it looks like it's going to be a week full of insects and learning lots of interesting facts!
