South Shields - A Seaside Town
We have learned that the town we live in is a seaside town. We have learned lots about the seaside this week in our nursery.
Our Nursery 'Coastal Walk' and Marine Park Visit
We had lots of fun finding lots of landmarks along our coastline. We had to remember lots of details about them so we could draw them on our 'Journey Map' on our return to Nursery.
We had great fun at our sport's day! Running, jumping, balancing, crawling!
Mud Week - What a muddy week we've had! We have been exploring the properties of 'mud'! We had fun digging up some mud from our digging pit then adding water to it! We watched how the consistency changed the more water we added to it!
We had fun creating our own mud cake recipes with ingredients from the forest. Lots of number work and counting was involved! Then we gathered the ingredients to make our cakes. Some of us worked as a team to make them!
Then we made our own mud paint and painted mud pictures! We explored adding powder paint to the mud to investigate what happened!
This week we collected some snails from our forest school and we made a special home for them in a tank. We have taken really good care of them; collecting leaves and grass, stones and vegetables to make them feel at home. We looked at information books and found out that snails like to be damp so we sprayed them with water every day. We made some delicious 'snail soup' for them to eat and we looked at the long 'snail trails' they leave behind!
We have worked hard learning how to play ball games with our friends We played passing games by throwing, rolling and kicking. We also went into the Mugga to play a game of football. Mrs Raine was in goal and the children tried really hard to score goals!
We started our week by thinking about volcanoes before creating a volcano dance to music. We built up our movement throughout the week and by Friday we were ready to transfer our movements to paper. We used circles and different types of lines to create our volcano masterpiece.
