The children have settled in to Nursery brilliantly and have been enjoying exploring in the indoor and outdoor provisions with their new friends.
One of the most popular activities in Nursery at the moment is using the bicycles. It has been lovely to see the older Nursery children helping our new Nursery children with using the pedals and manoeuvring the bicycles around the bike track.
One of our main focuses in Nursery has been practising putting on our coats ready to explore in the outdoor provision. I am very proud of the excellent perseverance skills that the children have demonstrated with this activity. Some children then went on to practise fastening their zips up. I have set the children who are able to do this activity a challenge of helping to teach their friends. They have loved being star helpers. Well Done Nursery an excellent start to the academic year.
The children have all settled in so well into Reception it is lovely to see all the children coming into school and settling into the new routine.
Our topic this half term is ‘I am great because…’ We have started our topic by looking at our bodies. We have all created a picture of ourselves which has been displayed in the classroom.
We have been listening to the story of Funny bones. The children have also enjoyed watching the skeleton dance song on you tube. In our maths work we have been looking at size and have ordered skeletons according to their heights.
We have started our RWI phonics. I am really pleased with how the children are able to identify the sounds the letters make. We have been trying hard to write our letter sounds and form the letters correctly.
In our workshop area we have been experimenting with colour mixing. We choose a could and painted one hand, painted our other hand a different colour and rubbed them together to make a new colour. We had lots of fun doing this.
