Nursery work for 2019 - 2020
Welcome to nursery!
This week we have been settling in to nursery. We explored the different labs inside and helped Curiosity to learn how we tidy up our classroom. We have enjoyed making new friends and we have managed to learn everyone’s name. We also had time to explore the outside area and the courtyard. We started to think about our class rules and are now very good at telling people in our class what we need to do to keep our classroom safe and fun.
This week we have been learning all about autumn. We have looked at the changes that are happening outside. We have read the story ‘The Gruffalo’ and made masks to help us act out the story. We have also done leaf rubbings with wax crayons and autumnal colours.
Fun with Friends
This week we learnt how to share with our friends and how important it is to be polite and kind to our friends. We also learnt how it is important to say please and thank you when talking to our friends. We read the story Lost and Found and made penguins in the art lab. We also made friendship biscuits!
How do you feel?
This week we explored our feelings. We practiced showing different feelings on our face and looked at how our faces change depending on how we are feeling. We made feelings puppets, focusing on being happy and sad. We discussed what makes us feeling different things, for example, playing with our friends makes us feeling happy and seeing spiders made us feel scared. Curiosity helped us think about how we can change person’s feelings. We used a lot of mirrors during the week to compare our feelings to different feelings we saw around the classroom.
This week we learnt all about the different parts of our bodies. We sang ‘heads, shoulders, knees and toes’. We also made pictures of our faces, trying to think about the colour of our skin and hair. During cooking, we made biscuit faces and tried to make sure that we added in all of the different facial features. We also brought in ‘all about me’ bags and shared our favourite objects and photographs of ourselves with our friends.
