Christmas fun

This week in nursery we have been learning all about Christmas. We weaved Christmas trees, we wrapped presents for our friends, we wrote letters, we stacked snowmen and made snowmen, we played Christmas tree bingo and loads more!

We also had a craft morning this week where our grown ups came and helped us create special crafts! We had soo much fun! We have also been practising for our nativity this week, we're such brilliant dancers and we can't wait to show off all of our moves on Wednesday when our grown ups come to watch!

"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!

This week we were also discussing our different cultures we enjoyed telling our friends what different languages we can speak so next week we decided to learn all about all around the world!

"Wow look at all the leaves"

This week in nursery we had lots of fun! We especially loved making inventions on the workshop we used lots of different coloured tape to make colourful bottles and boxes showing Miss Brown our great cutting skills! We also had a birthday tea party with reception for one of our nursery friends 4th birthday, she was ever so kind and brought us all cakes! We sang happy birthday and played some games!

We saw the caretaker sweeping up leaves on the playground and we thought it looked like fun! So we decided to be extra kind children and chose some tools (lots of brushes and dustpans) and went to help! We were so good at it I think we even had more muscles than our caretaker!

This week we've been enjoying reading about fairy tales in our book corner and discussing our favourite characters so next week we decided to learn all about the ginger bread man. However the ginger bread man is no where to be seen in nursery so on Monday it's time for a ginger bread man hunt! I wonder what clues he has left us!?

Fireworks go bang!

This week in nursery we were learning all about bonfires and fireworks! We made our very own sparklers and got to bring them to our own bonfire that we made in the garden! We watched some videos of fireworks that we found on the World Wide Web we spotted lots of different colours and decided that they make a loud banging noise.
We also enjoyed rolling conkers down the pipe in our small world it made us laugh a lot! Especially when they fell out of the bottom! We loved exploring the outdoors a lot this week Miss Brown even helped us to set up our very own water wall! We chose where we would like the pipes and funnels to go and Miss Brown attached them to our fence! We couldn't wait to share it with reception.

Because we enjoyed the water wall sooo much we decided we would like to learn more about water next week!

"Let's call her Mrs scarecrow"

This week in nursery we learned more about harvesting! We decided we would like to learn about scarecrows, we read lots of stories all about scarecrows we especially enjoyed the scarecrows wedding! We even decided to make our very own scarecrow in nursery to keep the crows away from our vegetables we were selling In our farm shop!

We really enjoyed using our jotters this week we were inspired by our little red hen story map which kept popping up around our nursery!

We also enjoyed painting our own pumpkins, and even washing them! We loved mixing different colours and explored how to make pink and violet with our paints, we had lots of pretty pumpkins!

We did brilliantly in our harvest festival performance showing all of our grown ups the little red hen story we had worked so hard learning, Miss Brown, George, Dawn and Natalie were all soooo proud of us all!

I have loved learning and exploring with you all this term, I hope you have a lovely week and I'll look forward to next term! :)
