Fantastic Friday!

It’s Fantastic Friday again, where we showcase the brilliant work and play in the nursery and at home each week! This week we have been reading the story Percy the Park Keeper and the Secret Path, this has lead to lots of interesting discussion about mazes and animals. We also discussed how maps and signs could help us to navigate our way around the nursery and the wider world. We have been designing our own mazes; drawing them and also building them with recycling and building blocks! We are still discussing Spring and have made some lovely flowers using lots of different materials and talked about what we like to do on sunny spring days! We have been talking about the life cycles of plants and animals and learning about their different stages of life and what they need to grow. We even started planting some flowers and cress to watch the growing process and helped to clean up and water our flowers at the front gate. We have been playing lots of imaginary games in our house corners; solving crimes as police officers, going on adventures as princesses and being very busy shopkeepers! We were building amazing structures with our bricks indoors and outdoors, completing our animal puzzles and practising our counting. We have been enjoying lots of messy play with water, mud, sand and shaving foam. We have enjoyed being out in the sunshine; riding bikes and scooters, playing with our mud kitchen, whittling sticks at forest school and eating some yummy picnic snacks!

Please continue to post your lovely pictures of the work and play taking place at home to the Learning Journals and let us know if you need any help with this! We love to see the fun you have at home!
