Counting conkers, Autumn treasure and splashing in puddles.

Sunday 01 October 2017

Wow! We’ve had another really busy week in Nursery. We continue to be really pleased with how well children are settling into Nursery life.

In the Sunshine room, the construction area has been popular. Children have loved using the bricks and other props to build trains, buses and planes. We’ve been on some exciting journeys; we even remembered that we needed tickets and made our own in the creative area.

There has been a lot of interest and enjoyment in playing with shapes and exploring colours. We shall continue with these themes next week as we add some shapes and colour enhancements to our provision to help consolidate the children’s learning.

In our maths area, the conker themed enhancement is providing lots of counting opportunities. Children have especially enjoyed trying to balance the conkers onto the Numicon pieces and dropping the correct number into the matching egg box.

Despite the varied weather, the children have continued to enjoy investigating and playing outdoors. Thank you to all those who brought things in for the Autumn investigation table or emailed pictures of your Autumn observations.

Each time your child participates in the home link activity they will get a star for their hand print. Our home link activities provide a great opportunity for your child to share and extend the activities they have enjoyed doing at Nursery.

‘We can’t go over it…’

Over the next few days, we’ll bring one of our favourite stories to life in our outdoor area – ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’. There’ll be lots of opportunities for small world re-telling of the story and making the props to go on our very own bear hunt!
