"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! :)

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?
