Wow what a wonderful week we have had. Nursery have been enjoying our story this week, 'Stick Man'. We have been measuring different size 'stick men', making lots of wonderful winter and Christmas crafts and enjoying making 'smores' by the fire during Forest School.
We have enjoyed dancing to Christmas songs and during dance and movement we have made our bodies move into different Christmas poses.
I want to say a huge thank you for all your kind words these last few weeks. I have enjoyed being your child's teacher here at Waverley and I will cherish all of the wonderful memories that we have all made since September.
I know that every child has made a great start in settling in and feeling like they belong to Nursery. I know that they will continue to learn and grow with confidence here.
I wish you a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2021.
Keep smiling and having fun Nursery :)
This week at Nursery we have been learning about Arctic animals. This weeks story was 'Flip flops first swim.' We danced to the Penguin song and moved our bodies around to turns ourselves into a Penguin.
We used our math's knowledge to organise number Penguins into the correct number order.
We had so much fun today during our Christmas crafts.
This week Nursery have been busy continuing with activities around our letter sound 'm'. We made marshmallow pictures with the letter sound 'm' and painted the letter sound 'm' using cotton buds to support our fine motor skills.
We have been making bubble pictures with duplo and bubble wrap.
To support our counting we needed to match the correct number of pipe cleaners with the correct number on the milk bottles and thread them though using our fine motor skills and a lot of concentration.
This week Nursery have been busy playing and learning about colours. Our story this week is 'What makes a Rainbow?'
We took part in a Rainbow experiment using skittles to make our own Rainbow.
We have been learning how to write the letter sound 'm' using Rainbow salt.
Nursery also enjoyed making toast and using our fine motor skills to spread our butter onto the toast.
This week at Nursery we have been learning about the letter sound 'm'. We played games to find out what started with the letter sound 'm' and made some silly soup.
Mr O'Brian found a hedgehog outside and we decided to make our own spiky hedgehogs using toothbrushes.
This week at Nursery we have enjoyed learning about Remembrance Day. We watched a lovely video clip about Remembrance Day, made our own poppies, counted poppies out and at 11am we stood in silence to remember.
On Friday we took part in Children in need. We made some Pudsey headbands, Pudsey masks, listened to a Pudsey story and joined in with Joe Wicks 24 hour PE challenge, we managed to do 30 minuets! Well done Nursery!
Welcome back to Nursery. The children have settled back onto the Nursery routine well.
