We are ‘Nature Explorers’ is our topic for this final half term in Nursery. Our new topic focuses on ‘mini-beasts’ and the children have already been excited to learn about bees and ladybirds. The children have drawn bees and ladybirds, used their painting and making skills to make some bees and ladybirds and have learnt the names for the different parts of a bee. We have had an exciting arrival of some class caterpillars. Every morning when the children come into the classroom they check up on how much they have grown overnight and whether they have begun to form their chrysalises’ yet.
In Maths we have been exploring and investigating the features of shapes. The children were
challenged to use 4 triangles to make a picture or pattern. Other children made interesting shape pictures.
We have continued with our “Friendship” topic in RE. We read a passage from the bible which told us some of the things that Jesus likes to do with his friends. We reminded the children that Jesus wants to be their friend and they can talk to Jesus as their friend and tell him about all that is important to them.
We are enjoying the warm, dry weather and have been spending as much time as possible outside. There has been lots of physical play, using the bikes and scooters, Mini beast moves - jumping and moving in so many different ways - and den building using materials and large bricks. The children have also been involved in caring for and watering the plants.
On Thursday some of the nursery children spent an enjoyable morning in Reception as it was the information morning for new Reception parents.
Have a lovely weekend,
Mrs Corcoran and the Nursery team
