Some children made some puppet characters. They used lollipop sticks and foam sheets, googly eyes and lots of embellishments. There were witches and princesses, granddads and humpties. At group time we looked at our puppets and talked about what we listed about them.
We were making reminders so that we show racism the red card tomorrow by wearing something red to nursery
There’s so much that happens every day at nursery, especially outside in the garden. Children’s involvement in their play is an indicator that they are using the whole learning environment well and that our planning is responsive to this children’s interests. It also helps us see that children are developing good learning dispositions such as autonomy and high self esteem.
This panorama demonstrates the children’s high level of involvement in their play.
The afternoon children and some of the full timers joined in the afternoon baking activity. And here is their ginger man ready to go in the oven. At group time we ate the gingerbread man and the children gave it a resounding thumbs up.
Today we are making a gingerbread man. Lots of children volunteered to help. We explored all the ingredients before mixing them together and then we assembled the gingerbread man. When he’s ready we will all share the gingerbread man, a bit each.
Inspiring drawings in nursery this afternoon
We’ve got more snails at nursery today. There are lots of different varieties and sizes. The snails are happy too as they have lots of food to much on
We can’t quite believe that we’re on the big screen. Lots of excitement this morning as we view our class film
And then we watched the reception film….
Our game of dominoes encourages the children to count, recognise arrays and look for amounts that are the same….. plus it was lots of fun
Recently, the children have been interested in hunting for minibeasts in the nursery garden. Some children spent most of the morning observing the snails moving. Other children developed an interest in drawing spirals linked to their discovery of the snail shells and the spider webs
