The staff in Nursery are Miss Hutchison, Mrs Finch and temporarily Mrs Watts.
This week we have been getting ready for Christmas.
Some of us dressed up as times tables rock stars for maths day. We also tried some indian food.
This week we have been celebrating and learning about diwali and bonfire night.
We have enjoyed making playdough pumpkins and pumpkin cakes.
We have had another busy but great week in Nursery. We have been practising our scissor skills by making number block puppets and cutting and sticking. We have made autumn kebabs with leaves, shaving foam cakes and had real pasta to cook with in the home corner. We have also been learning to recognise and subitise 1-3 and creating lots of lovely pictures.
This week we have been painting self portraits and looking closely at our features on our face. We have been enjoying dancing and singing. We have also been learning to subitise numbers 1 to 3. This is where we learn to recognise an amount of numbers in patterns without having to count them. The patterns can be different but the amount is the same.
We have been looking at Autumnal things and created an autumn collage. We have also been learning about numbers.
We looked at a pumpkin squash. It was hard on the outside but was soft when we cut it up. We talked about how the pumpkin grew from a tiny seed just like the ones inside the pumpkin.
We have been dressing up for Roald Dahl day and enjoyed an autumn walk.
The first week of Nursery has gone so quickly. Mrs Finch and I have been really impressed with how quickly the children have settled in, they are a wonderful group of children and we are looking forward to getting to know them more.
