Fantastic Friday!

Welcome back to Fantastic Friday, where we showcase the brilliant work and play taking place in the nursery each week. This week we have been settling back in after our long weekend and have enjoyed playing with all of our friends again. We have been talking about the start of Summer and exploring all the fun things we could do at home and in the nursery in Summertime. We have been talking about our feelings and discussing how we express them and who to talk to in the nursery. We started reading the story ‘The Tiger who came to Tea’ which we will be focusing on next week. This has led to some interesting discussions and beautiful artwork of different foods that we eat, how they are made and where they come from. We have been looking after and observing our caterpillars as they grow and making beautiful butterfly wing symmetrical paintings. We built some excellent bridges, walls and houses in our brick areas and have been playing lots of fun imaginary games such as beach picnics, cooking family meals and working in our home-office. We helped to make delicious cakes for two special birthday snacks and enjoyed celebrating together. We made some animal shapes with playdough, completed lots animal puzzles and we made our own fun pattern drawing game. We enjoyed splashing and experimenting in the water trays and playing with our new sand in the sand tray.

Please keep posting your brilliant pictures of the fun work and play that you do at home to the Learning Journals. We are happy to help if you need assistance with this. We hope you have a great weekend and we look forward to seeing you again on Monday!
