November in Nursery
We have been very busy learning through our play. Daily mark making is going on, we are using white board pens and boards, clip boards, pencils, felt tips and paint both independently and with the adults. We are using natural materials to make patterns with and getting immersed in our stories. We have really enjoyed The Gruffalo, The Gruffalo's Child and Peace at Last and are learning how to retell the stories with our friends. We are using numbers when we count every day and love to watch the changes take place when we cook or make playdough together. We made Gruffalo models out of playdough and then made a village for them. We tasted a taste which was new to many of us when we made and ate Gruffalo Crumble. Sound Tots and PE are happening each week and we are building a good repertoire of songs to sing and showing determination in developing new physical skills. Most importantly, we are making friendships and learning how to share as we play together and also developing our sense of a community in our family groups with our key workers.
The children have settled back into nursery remarkably quickly, well done everyone. We are now in our routines and learning a great deal through our play. We go outside every day, when the music is playing outside, the children just love to dance! We build with all sorts of different materials, make collections of natural objects, use our senses to explore. We particularly enjoyed our recent listening walk where we distinguished between lots of different sounds. We hear stories every day and have opportunities to talk about our favourite stories. Singing is one of our favourite activities in nursery, we sing every day, counting rhymes are some of our favourite songs. Enjoy just a few of our recent photographs. Parents, look on your child's Tapestry account to see what they have been up to.
