We have had a wonderful week at nursery. We have been focusing on our brilliant 'First Nativity'. The children have been practicing hard for weeks and it really did pay off as the children performed beautifully with great confidence.
We have enjoyed making Christmas crafts and watching some Christmas films in the afternoons.
This week we have been busy in nursery making some wonderful crafts using our fine motor skills to roll paper to make baubles for our Christmas trees and practiced our cutting skills with scissors.
We also had a wonderful Christmas party today where we played musical statues and pass the parcel. We even had a conga back to the classroom where we had some juice and a biscuit.
Wow what a wonderful week we have had in nursery.
The elves were busy over the weekend turning our role play area into 'Santa's Cottage'. The children have enjoyed receiving letters from around the world to place in Santa's 'good' box, setting presents up under the tree and role playing sitting back on the sofa with the fire on watching Christmas films.
We have been focusing on the number two this week. We had a practicing of writing the number two then pairing up socks to represent two.
On Thursday we had our Christmas craft day and it was wonderful to see so many parents come to join in with plenty of songs and glitter to get us into the festive spirit.
This week we have learnt our letter sound 'p' by playing bingo and guessing what objects are in the special bag that start with 'p'.
We have been making numbers using cubes and challenging ourselves by writing beyond the number two.
We have had fun outside creating our own obstacle course and enjoyed making our bodies move into different positions during Cosmic Yoga to the theme of Disney's Frozen.
This week Nursery has been turned into a Castle where we have been making spooky potions, dressing up as knights and princess' and making some hocus, pocus spells.
We have been reading 'Room on the Broom' and enjoying the rhyming words.
This weeks letter sound is 'n'. We have been practicing this in our phonics time and making 'silly soup' with 'n' objects. We used our gross motor skills to paint the letter sound 'n'.
Continuing on from our Space topic, Nursery have been busy making the correct quantity and matching that to our space rocket numbers. We have been designing our own space rocket using our initials and making our space cones.
We have had some wonderful role play in our space area and have made some delicious chocolate planets.
This week in Nursery we have been busy designing our Pudsey Bear t-shirts to wear for Children in Need next week. The children enjoyed seeing family come into their Nursery.
We have been very excited about our new Space role play area and learning all about Space and going on a Rocket ship to the Moon in music and movement. Our new story 'The Smeds and the Smoos' made us happy with the love that the aliens have for each other. We have also celebrated 'firework' night by making firework pictures and yummy chocolate sparklers.
