Welcome to our wonderful Nursery
We thoroughly enjoyed our whole school science morning. We were investigating whether people with the biggest feet jump the furthest. We talked about fair testing - what would stay the same and what would be different each time. In our group we found that the person with the biggest feet did not jump the furthest. We thought that further investigation may show that people with longer legs actually jump the furthest. Great investigating from Nursery up to Year 6.
We have enjoyed learning about the Coronation of King Charles this week. We found out a lot of new facts about King Charles and even enjoyed creating our own portraits of the King. We enjoyed making our own crowns and we got to wear them to our wonderful, full school party lunch.
Nursery have enjoyed starting their new topic ‘Come Outside’ this week. We have been reading stories about growing beans such as Jack and the Beanstalk and Jasper’s Beanstalk. The children have enjoyed planting their own beanstalks, creating story maps, making pictures with their own “treasure” at the top of the beanstalk and gardening in our outdoor area. In maths this week we have been exploring capacity and today the children enjoyed making delicious milkshakes and deciding when their cups were empty or full.
Huff Puff Challenge
This week we have read the story of The Three Little Pigs. The children enjoyed taking part in an activity to see which material would be the strongest to make a little house out of for the pigs. We explored the materials that were used and the children were fantastic are using words to describe them. The children built their own houses out of straw, sticks and bricks and the the "big bad wolf" (hairdryer) attempted to blow them down. As you can see by the pictures the children loved this!
Our Farm Visit
As part of our learning about the season Spring this term and the changes that we see happen at this time we were lucky enough to visit the family farm of one of the other children in our school. We enjoyed a sunny but chilly walk down to the farm. When we arrived we were lucky enough to see two live births before having cuddles with some day old lambs. Some of the children also bottle fed the lambs before looking at some of the very tiny lambs who needed some special time in a warmer barn - a bit like a special care baby unit for lambs!
Our topic this term is Houses and Homes. The children enjoyed a local walk around Brigham looking at different types of houses. We spotted semi-detached, detached, terraced houses and bungalows. We were lucky enough to watch some builders at work and watched them putting some new roof tiles on a bungalow. A local walk couldn't end without a trip to the park. On our way back to school we saw a dog called Esme which the owner said was a very friendly dog that loved children!
In Nursery this week we have read the story 'Pete the cat and his four groovy buttons' and enjoyed activities linked to the number 4. This included making Pete button sandwiches, making birthday cakes with 4 candles and discovering which shapes have 4 sides.
It has also been Mental Health Week this week and we have enjoyed reading the story 'The Colour Monster' and talking about how he changes colour when he feels different emotions. The children loved creating their own monsters and talking about how they were feeling.
Our story this week was The Tiger Who Came to Tea and our number focus was the number 3. Look at all of the fun we have had in class, including; sandwich making for a tiger picnic, colour mixing to create orange to paint our own tiger pictures, subitising number 3 and mark making in our outdoor area.
We have enjoyed reading the story of 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' this week as part of our topic. We sorted the foods that the caterpillar ate into healthy and unhealthy categories. We enjoyed making story maps, using our math knowledge to count the different foods, making healthy fruit smoothies for snack and so may more wonderful activities in our continuous provision.
We enjoyed the story Oliver's Vegetables this week and created our own little greenhouses to grow our own beans. We are looking forward to seeing how much these grow! One of our favourite parts of the story was when Oliver made chips at the end of the story so we decided to make our own chips for snack time. We used the knives safely and enjoyed some delicious homemade chips. Look at all of the other exciting things we have done this week!
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
