"When it gets very cold it turns to icy"

This week in nursery we had lots of fun exploring different concepts around winter! We were especially excited about real snow! The week before we had frozen our dinosaurs outside when the weather got very cold so we knew what happened and how it happened when it snowed! We spoke about how when it is very cold water turns to ice. we also discovered that when we pick snow up because of our warm hands it melts and turns back into water!
We also had our nativity! It has been a very busy week! We were so excited to show our grown ups all of our hard work this term we shone like the stars we are!

We also had lots of fun designing our own Christmas trees using different resources such as buttons, tinsel and beads. We made our trees unique and were very proud of them.
Throughout the week our parents had been very kind and donated some food for our Christmas party. We had so much to share! We enjoyed sitting around the big table with reception sharing good manners and discussing our favourite foods.
We also had winter craft morning where we made lots of different crafts with our grown us. We made; snowmen, play dough, reindeer food, marshmallow snowmen, chocolate reindeer, snowflakes, wreaths and new year cards! it was a fantastic morning filled with fun! Thank you for everyone who came along to join in with us!

Exciting Exploring

This week in nursery we had lots of fun exploring different ways to make marks. We were really interested in the magnetic letters and we spent a long time matching letters to sounds we knew! We also explored our community this week. We were discussing with our friends where we lived and whether we lived in a flat or a house. From this we explored our community to see the different things we could see and hear around our school.
We have also been practicing for our nativity this week. We are all brilliant at our songs and know nearly all of them! We sang them merrily ad we all worked as a team putting our Christmas tree up. We spoke about how some families do not celebrate Christmas and what other traditions there are. Some children suggested that it is still ok to join in with other people celebrations. We liked this idea.

We also worked hard as a team setting up a Santa's workshop in the role play. We sourced different resources such as tinsel and wrapping paper to put inside our workshop. We spoke about what work would be happening in the work shop and got excited about presents. We can't wait to come in on Monday and see what you all can create in the workshop!
