Fantastic Friday!

Welcome back to Fantastic Friday where we showcase the amazing work and play we have done in the nursery each week. This week we have been exploring sea-life; the children have been using the iPads and the laptop to find information and search for stories and songs. The children are able to identify a lot of different kinds of sea life and some of the children have been very good at guessing the animal sound listening games. Some children enjoyed drawing an under the sea scene featuring their favourite sea creatures. In the snack area the children took part in baking they’re own delicious starfish and fish biscuits for snack.

A lot of the children have been asking questions about dinosaurs so we have set up a dinosaur world, which has led to some fantastic role play in small groups. We have been reading lots of interesting books about dinosaurs, playing dinosaur turn taking and counting games and making dinosaur artwork. We have also been very impressed by how many children can remember and identify lots of different dinosaur names.

Our new children have settled in very quickly and have even started to form some lovely friendships. A big thank you to all the children for being kind, helpful and for showing our new friends what we do in nursery!

Please continue to post pictures of the fantastic work and play the children enjoy at home on the Learning Journals. We love to see all the fun activities you get up to! We hope you have a great weekend and look forward to seeing you all on Monday!
