The nursery children have started their Christmas cooking. They decided they wanted to make an edible Rudolf. First we thought of ideas of what we could use, and come up with the idea of using chocolate tea cakes and curlywurlys, with a red smartie for the nose. Don’t they look amazing!
The nursery children have been learning all about circles so we decided to make circular food. Last week we toasted bagels and this week we made apple slices topped with cream cheese and sprinkles. Delicious!
Elvis the Elf has arrived in the nursery classroom! He has been sent by Santa to help the children prepare for Christmas. He thoroughly enjoyed helping the children decorate the tree. Doesn’t it look amazing!
As part of our Children in Need activities, Mrs Keegan kindly organised a treasure hunt. The nursery children were very excited as they were able to look all around the school for clues. The year 6 children helped the little ones to follow the map and to find the final clue that spelt ‘Pudsey’. Thank you Mr Keegan and year 6, we had a wonderful time.
nursery and Reception have begun their week thinking about friendship! We read ‘Hugless Douglas’ by David Melling, and realised that we can all be good friends!
The session began with the children creating a handprint poster, showing of their ‘Helping Hands’, they made some beautiful heart toast with a friend. There is more to come later today with friendship bracelets, and making a mobile.
What a busy couple of days we have had with all our firework themed activities. We made lovely glittery firework pictures, designed our own bonfire night rocket, made fireworks out of sparkly play dough, made big firework pictures outside using different coloured chalks and we played firework pairs and number matching games. We even had time to make an edible breadstick sparkler. Delicious!
Role play is an important part of a child’s development as it builds confidence, creativity, communication, imagination and physical development. It is also great fun! The children thoroughly enjoyed getting the dressing up box out.
The nursery and reception children have had a busy morning participating in lots of pumpkin themed activities. First of all they listened to the story “Pumpkin Soup” before going outside for lots of pumpkin fun. They hammered pegs into pumpkins, made pumpkin collages, made pumpkins out of play dough, and sponge painted bowls to look like pumpkins. They even had a “Roll the pumpkin” competition to see who could roll their pumpkin the furthest! To finish the morning off they had a nice bowl of soup to warm them up. Delicious!
