It has definitely been a week of mixed weather; we’ve enjoyed playing in the sunshine and dancing in the rain! Children loved taking part in an obstacle course – they balanced carefully along the beams and across the stepping stones and took turns to crawl through the tunnels.
On the rainy days, we enjoyed singing and dancing to some ‘bean bag‘ songs. Children waved the bean bags high and low, balanced them on different body parts and skipped around them.
We continue to talk about autumn time and have been looking at some artwork by Andy Goldsworthy. Children used the ‘autumn treasure’ from their bags to create their own patterns and pictures.
Help at home: Our nursery rhyme for this week is ‘Baa Baa Black Sheep‘. Sing the rhyme together at home. Does your child know the words? Can they say the end of each line if you miss out the last word? E.g. Baa Baa Black Sheep, have you any….? You might like to change the words and create your own version, too.
Nursery Library and Wish List
- In the entrance to Nursery, we have a selection of books that you’re welcome to borrow. Please sign them out and tick when you return them. We hope you enjoy sharing the stories at home together.
- We also have a ‘Wish List’ board in Nursery where we sometimes add things that we need to enhance provision and learning in Nursery. We’ve added a few items for the next two weeks, so please take a look and if you are able to help out, please take the post-it note and bring in the item when you can. Thank you in advance for your help and donations.
