Autumn 2

We have been getting ready for Christmas by preparing our own Christmas Eve bag!

We have made our own Magic Reindeer Dust and have made our very own Christmas Cake (for Santa!). We have made sure we did not forget Rudolph by adding a carrot for him in the bag!

Our Stick man story inspired us to make our own stick men so we collected sticks from our forest and used the resources in our Crafty Corner!  We listened very carefully to the story and we were able to make our own story map.  Excellent work Nursery children!

This week Monty the magpie came to Nursery to visit us.  We helped him to build a cosy nest with autumn leaves.  On Wednesday he was really sad because he had dropped all of his shiny treasures in our Nursery.  Thankfully the children were happy to help and they found all of his shiny objects.  Monty was very pleased!  We did lots of sorting activities and thought lots about what makes an object shiny.  Maybe we will need to explore this a little bit more........

This week we held a 'Stay and Play' where we invited parents and carers into Nursery to share our learning.  Thank you to all of the adults who came and participated in all of our activities!

This week we had lots of fun exploring fireworks.  We thought about the colours and the sounds they made and then made our own firework pictures by splatting paint.  The children had lots of fun and our big actions were great for developing our motor skills!

Is it shiny?

We've been learning lots more about shiny things. On the way to nursery Olly noticed the moon will still in the sky! This led to lots of discussions about day and night. We remembered about 'stars' and thought that Monty Magpie would like shiny stars for his nest. But how would he reach them? Fly? Go in a rocket? Climb a tall tree? We shared a story 'How to catch a star' about a little boy trying to catch a star.

This has led us to think about night times, space, nocturnal animals and lots more!

We have also taken part in Road Safety Day. We learned how to cross the road safely. STOP, LOOK, LISTEN, THINK!

We looked at safe places to cross.

"The zebra crossing." - Caitlyn

"A lollipop person." Zac

We thought about being seen in the dark and reflective clothing. We made our nursery very dark and played with the glow sticks. It was lots of fun and very colourful!
