Long Term Nursery Goals  

This is a little poster to show you what we are aiming for by the end of your child's nursery years. 

If you were to look around our classroom you would see the various little catchphrases pinned up in the appropriate areas , this helps show adults what we are doing and also highlights it for the children and they love the little phrases .... how could you not want to be a 'Sparlky Star' or 'Music Jiver' !

If you ever have any questions regarding your child's development please feel free to pop in and see me or send an email;  


Elephant appreciation day 

National Elephant appreciation day ....

We have been learning all abut these wonderful creatures today, where they live , what they eat and what it means that they are endangered and how we can protect them. The children have really embraced everything elephant! We have moved like elephants , swaying with out big trunks and seeing if we can flap our own ears - apparently some can !  We decorated our animals by mixing paint and noticed that the colours changed as we combined different colours.  After lunch we looked at how some elephants are used in festivals and that they were often decorated with colored chalks and paints so we decorated our own elephants using a special technique called pointillism where we used lots of little dots to make a picture. 


One Potato , two potatoes .... 

During our spring term the children planted up their vegetable patch and they were able to enjoy some of the produce this week. There were shrieks of excitement when they started to dig up the potatoes as it was like finding buried treasure one children told me ! They worked hard finding all of the potatoes and then explained to me that they were to dirty to eat and they needed to clean them. they scrubbed them clean and sorted them onto trays. after much debate about how we should cook them we decided to boil some and add some of their mint from the herb bed and roast the others. The roast ones proved to be the biggest hit ! As we still had lots of potatoes left the children counted them out into bags so everyone had some to share with their families. 

The children also discovered their peas were ready to pick but these didn't make it to the cooking stage as the proved too delicious straight from the pods and sharing out with friends!


Welcome back! 

The children have all had a wonderful first week back settling into class.
Our topic this term is 'The Zoo', our role-play area has been transformed into a Zoo and the children are enjoying selling tickets and ice-creams.
  We have been learning about various animals that might live in a zoo and where those animals would live in the wild. The children loved finding the countries on our map and looking at if it's a hot or cold habitat. We revisited this later in the week when the children sorted out their coloured in animal pictures and stuck them onto the appropriate habitat box, they were fantastic at remembering what they had learnt. We have been singing the continents song in class which they are great at! 
We have been building enclosures for animals and talked about what their enclosures needs to be - high walls for the tall giraffe, water for the crocodiles.

New words learnt about this weeks ..... enclosures , continents , habitats, countries.
