Fantastic Friday!

Welcome back to Fantastic Friday where we showcase the amazing work and play done in the nursery each week. It has been another busy week at the nursery, continuing to find out about people who help us, transitioning to school and having Sports Day!

In the story corner we have been continuing the camping role play. The children made a paper maché fire to put the tea lights In and added even more blankets to make it extra cosy. In the house corner, the children have been roleplaying as teachers, setting writing tasks for their friend and pretending to be at work/pupils.
In snack, the children have been very good at the fire engine and ambulance puzzles, using the photos as references when they get stuck. The children chose to make red and purple play dough this week and have been experimenting with different recipes to try and make slime.
In art, we have been making bonfire handprint pictures, lollipop crossing sticks and fire collages. We have a new easel in the garden for painting and drawing with whiteboards pens. We also set some more of our butterflies free.

We finished the week off with a very successful sports day (despite the iffy weather!). We started off with a warm up, talking about why it is important to do so before breaking into our groups. The children have been practising the races and waiting their turn for a while and it definitely showed – everyone did so well! We would like to thank all the grown ups who came along to watch and support us, it is very much appreciated and we hope you had fun. 

We hope you enjoy your weekend and we look forward to seeing you all on Monday! Please continue to post your lovely photos of all the fun you have at home on the Learning Journals!
