Christmas Party Day
Christmas Jumper Day and Santa Dash
We had a brilliantly creative day producing a lot of fabulous Christmas crafts. We made salt dough Christmas tree decorations, reindeer cards and Rudolph headbands. In addition to these wonderful decorative pieces we also made some tasty Christmas treats with marshmallow snowmen and gingerbread men.
The children have loved their maths challenges this week and worked so hard to apply their learning since the start of the year to explore repeated patterns and engage in problem solving to find all the possibilities. Firstly they worked systematically to find all the different ways of decorating the different coloured stockings with different coloured baubles, then they used their own marks to record this symbolically. Later in the week they also designed a range of repeated patterns to decorate their bauble templates, some children even challenged themselves to create 3 colour repeats.

STEM Activity - Jumping Leaves
For this STEM activity the class were shown in the previous week how to create static energy by rubbing the balloons on their clothing or hair and from this we explored how well a range of leaves made out of different materials would cling to the balloon. During their independent exploration in continuous provision, they were so enthused at the challenge of working out which material would ‘stick’ the easiest onto the balloon. The class were able to apply prior learning to make some initial predictions about which materials they thought the balloon would grab the easiest and which materials would not attach easily to the balloon. From this they tested a range of materials and began to use some language of material properties to describe what they had observed using words such as bumpy, soft and heavy.
Say NO to Racism
In Nursery we came together today to say no to racism and show it the red card by wearing red or blue.
Finding all possibilities - Problem Solving
After reading all about Mr Panda and his wonderfully colourful doughnuts, we had our first try in Nursery at some problem solving! We talked about how each of our possibilities had to be different, so we tried to remember to keep one thing the same and change only one thing at a time. We worked very hard to find all the possible ways of decorating the biscuits using 2 choices of colours for both the icing and sprinkles.
Making ghosts and thinking about their emotions
The children were enthusiastic and engaged when listening to the instructions for how to make the ghost model. Afterwards most children could follow each instruction carefully with some just needing some support when cutting and mark making to gain greater control. When exploring a range of ghost expressions, the class were able to identify which one was sad or happy and they were interested in learning new words such as exhausted, surprised and miserable.
Sponsored Fun Run
Thank you for all your support in raising money to buy more amazing books for our class library, the class absolutely loved dressing up as their favourite book characters today!
Role-playing How to Look After a Baby for our RE Welcome Topic
#Hello Yellow - Mental Health Day 2021
In school today we have been raising awareness for young people's mental health through wearing yellow to support the Young Minds charity. We thought lots in Nursery about how we can brighten everyone else's day by doing something little to make others smile!
Repeating Patterns - Making a round doughnut AB pattern for Mr Panda
Goldilocks and the Three Bears - Continuous Provision Challenges
As part of their continuous provision challenges this week, the children were given the option to make a 'Keep Out' sign to make sure Goldilocks stayed out of our new Three Bears' cottage role-play area and they were also challenged to make a chair in the lego area that would fit the three different sized bears.
Lexie: I like pink strawberry doughnuts with glittery sprinkles
Eira-Rose: I like blueberry flavour doughnuts and my favourite would be juicy and fruity
Sullivan: I like a red strawberry doughnut and crunchy sprinkles
As part of the author study we have also read the book 'Thank you, Mr Panda'. We learnt more about the importance of good manners and how using manners makes other people feel. We tried to make Mr Panda feel better after all the animals forgot to say thank you by making him a special hat present. We worked hard to cut with increasing control and use mark making and collage materials to decorate the present.
Joel: I put all the big ones together and all the little ones went together over that side
Ella: This bowl is so big that it goes with all of the big things
Repeating Pattern Challenge
Nursery were set a very special challenge today by the 3 Bears to design a wallpaper with repeating pattern ready to decorate our new 3 Bears' Cottage role-play area.
Ourselves - Expressions
During our first Nursery topic 'Ourselves' we have been exploring the different feelings we may experience. Through reading lots of stories we have introduced the Zones of Regulation, which helps us to recognise how we feel and we can now use the zones to talk to others about our emotions. We have really enjoyed experimenting with different emotions during circle time to play 'Guess the Expression'. As part of recognising our emotions we have also been using the playdough to form a range of facial expressions and share a time we have felt like this.
Miya: Santa makes me happy because I like getting presents
Lucy: Painting makes me happy because I like painting rainbows
Ella: Ghosts make me sad because they go "whooo"
Mission Statement Display
In Nursery we have been exploring the book 'We're All Works of Art' by Mark Sperring and from this we have produced some beautiful collages. In Mark's words "We are proud of our uniqueness."
