The nursery children carried out a science investigation today. The questions they wanted to find the answers to were: What does ice feel like? What happens to it? Does it float? They had great fun finding out! They even used a magnifying glass to examine the ice in detail. They also used their fine motor skills to make a snowman. They used tongs and chopsticks to pick up cotton wool balls and put them into a snowman shaped jar. Have a look; they look amazing!
The nursery children had lots of fun this morning. As part of our ‘Snow and Ice’ topic we will be experimenting with ice. Today we thought we’d have some fun and paint the ice. The children were fascinated to see how the colours and textures changed as the ice melted. We can’t wait to carry out more ice experiments!
We have really busy in nursery today learning about our special sound. We completed a range of phonic activities on the iPads, made the letter ‘a’ out of ‘Wikki stix’, wrote the letter in shaving foam and finger painted it too. We even went outside to practise our letter formation with chalk.
We had a lovely time in The Gower Heritage Centre. We watched a Christmas film, made a Christmas calendar, watched a puppet show, sang with a singing elf, saw a variety of different animals and even met Santa! What a busy day!
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!
