Nursery 2017 - 2018

It has been lovely to welcome our first class of children into Little Saints Nursery.  They have all been superstars and have enjoyed exploring their new environment, both indoors and outdoors.  We are looking forward to getting to know each child and joining them in their learning journey.

 

 

 

                   

 

 

                   

                                          

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This week (wc 25th September) in Nursery the children have enjoyed making marks in paint using tools such as whisks, rollers, spatulas and straws.  We then went outside and made marks in the bubble puddles!  We were very excited to open a box of new wooden bricks of different shapes and sizes and the children have made some super models.

We have spent lots of time outside, blowing bubbles, making large models and creating some wonderful recipes in the mud kitchen!  We even found 2 worms and some of the children a sustained period of time creating a Wormery.  We are looking forward to seeing what the worms have done over the weekend.

We have also been learning the number rhyme ‘5 Little Ducks’, focusing on counting out how many ducks come back to the pond each time.  We have been singing along to the rhyme using a link on the Interactive board.  You may want to listen to this at home with your child, please see the link below:

Nursery class went for a lovely walk with the Reception class on Tuesday 3rd October. First we sat and listened to the sounds around us. It was a very windy day and we found lots of leaves on the ground. We talked about the colours that we could see and how the ground felt to walk on. It was  a little bit muddy!

 

 

 

 

                                        

 

 

                                           

        

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This week in Nursery we have had lots of fun exploring Autumn. 

We have been reading the story ‘Leaf Man’ by Lois Ehlert and enjoyed spotting the different animals and objects created by the leaves.  We used all the treasures we had collected in our bags over the weekend to create some beautiful Autumn pictures – we have made Leaf Man, the animals from the story and our faces. 

Understanding the World: The World – Comments and asks questions about aspects of their familiar world (30-50 months)

 

We have been learning the song ‘In the Autumn’:

 

In the Autumn, in the Autumn

Leaves fall down, leaves fall down.

Lots of red and yellow, lots of brown and orange

On the ground, on the ground.

(Tune: Freres Jacques)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Phonics we have been playing around with the Nursery Rhyme ‘Incy Wincy Spider’ and have enjoyed enlivening the rhyme (Letters and Sounds – Phase 1 games) by adding voice sounds and finding different places for Incy to climb, for example up a tree, on the tap, up the steps.  We also used the website below to help us sing the rhyme:

We have created all sorts of models and vehicles using the construction resources outside.  The children worked well together to build their models and enjoyed engaging in role play once they had been made.

 

 

Expressive Arts and Design: Exploring and using media and materials – Use various construction materials.  Beginning to construct, stacking blocks vertically and horizontally, making enclosures and creating spaces.

We have continued counting, using number names in play and reciting numbers to 10 (Mathematics: Numbers 30-50 months) throughout our play. 

 

 

We have also had the school photographer in this week who has taken some lovely pictures of all the Nursery children.

We have had a busy week:
