Exploring nursery

We are happy to be back at Nursery and are having a great time exploring nursery.

 

Our teachers are Claire, Jen, Katrina and Fatima.

 

This term we are learning all about ourselves, exploring our environment and learning the rules and boundaries at nursery. We are exploring messy play and mark making in a variety of ways.

 

We are sharing a story each week and learning lots of different rhymes.

We have been reading...

Dear Zoo read by Claire

All about animals!

This week in the 2s room we are learning all about animals. Our book is Dear Zoo.

 

Wrapping animals for a guessing game

 

A great game to play at home is wrapping animals (or other toys) in paper to have a go at guessing. Have a good feel at them. Can you feel two legs or four? Has the animal got a long or short neck?

Can you move like an animal? Stomp like an elephant? Swing your arms like a monkey? Flap your arms lile a parrot? Have a go at home.

We love sensory bottles

 

 

We love looking at our sensory bottles. They are all different colours and have different things in them such as leaves, flowers, stars and pom poms. We like to watch the items move about inside the liquid. If you make sensory bottles at home, make sure to glue the lids down tightly to avoid leaking liquid.

World Nursery Rhyme Week

Poppies

 

 

This week the children had noticed poppies so we made poppies in class. For some we used paint and for others we used pens. 

Making Musical Instruments

Zobia has been making musical instruments with her daughters. They used pasta, rice and lentils in bottles to make shakers.

 

Decorating cakes with Zobia

 

 

Zobia decorated cup cakes with her daughters at home. For a quick and easy activity with your child, buy some cheap plain biscuits or cupcakes.You can have fun decorating them with sweets, icing, and chocolate chips.

Autumn Ideas with Zobia

Zobia went on a walk in the park with her daughters. They listened to different sounds and collected colourful leaves. They talked about all the different colours that they could see in the leaves. They talked about the colder weather and why the leaves fall. They saw rabbits and squirrels. 

 

We have been exploring pumpkins

 

We made spiders with cardboard tubes and black paint

 

Fun with jelly!

Mark making

Spare wallpaper is great for mark making. Roll it out onto the floor and add some pens, pencils or crayons. 

If you're lucky enough to get to the beach take a stick with you to make marks in the damp sand. Alternatively use a tray and pour some sand in for quick and easy mark making.

Next time you are outside, either in your yard, garden or on a walk, take the time to look around.

- Look up to the sky.

- Look in the trees and plants.

- Look on the ground.

 

What can you see and hear? There are birds, insects and lots more all around us.

Your teachers have been looking and listening to wildlife where they live. Watch the videos below.

Colour Sorting

Still image for this video

Can you try this colour sorting activity?

Look at the pictures, can you make your own butterfly painting?

 

First, cut out a butterfly shape and fold it in half.

 

Then paint on one half of your butterfly.

 

Your butterfly should look something like this.

 

Next, fold your butterfly over so that the painted part folds into the blank part.

 

Finally, when you open your picture you should have a beautiful butterfly.

 

Look, the caterpillars have started to make their cocoons:

Caterpillars- week 2

Tiny Seed Story

Still image for this video

Look, Jen's seeds have begun to grow!

Can you join in with the rhyme and actions?

Still image for this video

This is my garden (Extend one hand forward, palm up)
I’ll rake it with care, (Make raking motion on palm with 3 fingers of other hand)
I’ve got some small seeds (Use thumb and finger to show small)
To plant right in there. (Plant motion)
The sun will shine (Make circle with hands)
And the rain will fall, (Let fingers flutter down to lap)
My seeds will sprout (Cup hands together; extend upward slowly)
And grow really tall. (Stand on tiptoes and indicate tall)

Please see the overview below. These are some suggestions to support the children’s learning and to enable them to complete work at home over the coming weeks. We are committed to ensuring that your child is still learning as much as possible.

Teachers will upload additional activities, matched to learning being done in nursery, on to the class page.
