Summer term 2
We cant believe we are in Summer 2 already! This term our main topics will be animals, holidays and travel and traditional stories. We have turned the homecorner into a Gruffalo cave. It has been very exciting acting out the Gruffalo story in the deep dark wood!. There are some photos below. We are also very excited about our trip to Twycross zoo where we will be looking at lots of interesting animals.
Summer Term 1
The main topic this term is growth. We will be planting our nasturtian seeds and watching them grow. We will also be planting lots of seeds in our garden. Our Forest school sessions have started. Check back here for some photos soon.
Spring term 2
We have made our very own hospital! We have been learning all about the people who help us and have had lots of fun. Take a look at the photos below.
Sam the Sensible Squirrel has also been helping us to be resourceful by
Helping us use our imagination to explore possibilities and new experiences e.g. colour mixing, hospital and fire fighter role play.
Asking good questions and being curious in our learning
e.g. how do the talking tins and remote control cars work?
Making links in our learning and knowing what to do and who to ask for help when we get stuck.
New Term January 2014
This term we will be learning all about Space and Winter. We are building our very own space area and will be exploring all things related to space.
We made some beautiful Winter Collages. The children really enjoyed rolling, painting and sticking. Take a look at the fantastic artwork below. We are really proud of what the children achieved.
We have been busy painting our Kandinsky inspired pictures. We also had a puppet show "Jack and the Beanstalk" by Mr Covington. It truely was a magical experience. The puppets were fantastic!
At the bottom of this page you can see our Building Learning Power leaflet. We have been using Billy the Team Bee to help us collaborate with learning to play games together eg. lotto and colour tallying, help each other if somebody is stuck, work as a team to tidy up, manage our feelings when working with others, solve problems together, adapt our behaviour to different events social situtations and changes in routine, learn the rules and expectations of Nursery. Tony the Tough Tortoise has also still been helping us to persevere with learning to put on our coats, learning to hold our pencil properly, learning to use the scissors, learning to pour our own drinks and learning to pedal the tricycles. We have been so busy!
