In Nursery we have been using the Numberblocks television series to help us with our number work. This week we made numberblocks one, two and three. We practised counting and using language like big/small and bigger/smaller.
This week in Nursery we have been reading Aliens love Underpants.
The children have really enjoyed the story, there have been lots of giggles when listening to what the cheeky aliens get up to.
The book is full of rhyming words and some children are starting to spot them.
The children have created colourful pairs of pants which we are going to put up on display soon so come and have a look.
Our family project this half term is for the children to make their own aliens. They can be made from any resources. They could be made from old cardboard boxes, playdough, scraps of fabric or anything else you can think of. We are looking forward to seeing them in school in a few weeks time.
On Monday Reception and Nursery went on a trip to Ash End House Farm. When we arrived we enjoyed having lunch in the barn and then had lots of fun feeding and stroking the different farm animals. We found out lots of information about the animals and what life is like on the farm. We saw cows, horses, chicks, goats, pigs, and much more. Our favourite part of the trip was seeing the reindeer and Santa. Santa gave us all a present and we sang lots of Christmas songs throughout the day. We also learnt about the Christmas story and acted it out. Before our coach journey back to school we had a play in the play area.
During Maths week Nursery have used the song ‘Five Currant Buns’ as our focus. We have also been learning about the number one and recognising one of different objects.
When our parents came in for our workshop we sang them the song. Then we decorated the currant buns we had made. We counted spoonfuls of icing sugar and drops of water, mixed it together and then put one cherry on the top.
We also made a poster all about the number one.
Finally we cut out currant buns so that we could take them home and sing the song with our families.
