Welcome to our Celebrating Success page.
Here we will share some of the wonderful things we do within the Nursery across each term. Please keep an eye on this page to see what has been going on.
End of Term One Parent/Carer Event.
At the end of Term One, we were delighted to invite the Nursery children's adults into the Nursery to explore the children's Learning Journals and to partake in some activities.
The Nursery children were excited to show off all the fun and interesting things they had been doing over the term, as well as make their own playdough to take home, and create something special at the creative table, which they could also take home.
Week One :
This week we enjoyed exploring fireworks and created our own fireworks pictures using paint, glitter and a marble on black sugar paper. The children were excited to see how their pictures would turn out.
Here are some photos of some of the children making their firework pictures.
This term we are also exploring our basic shapes, circle, square, triangle and rectangle. We are learning the names for each shape and discussing their properties.
We have been exploring shape through sorting activities, using sticks to make shapes in the garden and using 2d shapes found in the setting and talking about them. We have been focusing on their properties, such as the number of edges/sides each shape has, the number of corners each shape has and whether each shape has the same length edges/sides or whether they have some long and some short.
** Challenge ** Ask your child to find certain shapes when at home or when you are out and about. See how many you can find each time.
We would love to hear about all the shapes you find and where you find them !
Throughout the year we focus our learning through Letters and Sounds. We have been exploring environmental sounds, along with rhyming words, whilst looking at letter sounds and matching objects that begin with the given sound. The children have really enjoyed these activities so far and will be developing their skills throughout the year.
