Fantastic Friday!

Welcome back to Fantastic Friday, where we showcase the amazing work and play done in the nursery each week. This week has seen the start of Winter and the beginning of us talking about Christmas. First, however, we celebrated a birthday by baking a cake and singing. We discussed how it was icy in the morning and other types of Winter weather and how to keep warm – the children decided hats, scarves and gloves could help us all in the winter months!

The children have also been exploring the magnets, going around the room to see what sticks and what doesn’t. They were surprised to find the fish in the bubble lamp were magnetic! We talked about the force of magnets and how they can push and pull objects depending on what they are made of. They also have been sorting the animal counters into size and colour independently.

We have added new resources to our cosy corner, including cushions and bubble lamps. It’s a very nice area for relaxing and reading books. In the sand, some of the children were able to write their name with their finger and asking how to draw different letters. This is a great way to develop fine motor skills and early writing skills.

In art, we have continued the theme of light/dark and road safety by creating silhouette pictures and painting road signs. Toward the end of the week we were excited to put up our Christmas tree and decorate it, as well as dancing to Christmas music!

Upstairs in the terrific two’s we have been continuing to look at and talk about winter. We have also started to talk about Christmas and some of our friends helped to decorate the Christmas trees. We experimented with ice cubes in the water tray, seeing how long it would take to melt. In the art area we made ice paints with some lolly pop sticks which we used to create our own icy pictures.

If you have any spare boxes of tissues please can you bring them into nursery as this would be greatly appreciated. We hope you have a lovely weekend, please post the fun you have on the Learning Journals.

Fantastic Friday!

Welcome back to Fantastic Friday where we showcase the amazing work and play done in the nursery each week. This week in nursery, we have been very busy! We have been discussing road safety; how we keep safe when crossing the road, who can help us keep safe and how to travel with safety in mind. The children have been making cars, road signs, doing road safety puzzles and making their own streets with art resources.

In the art area, we have be drawing and making houses/our homes which led to discussing our families and how each family is different. Some of us chose to make necklaces and pamper each other with pretend face masks, make-up and face painting..

In the construction area, we have been building houses using both the large and smaller bricks. We worked very hard and spent a lot of time on their buildings (lots of sharing resources and idea sharing too). We have been using books/stories and our white board to look at where people live (flats/houses/caravans/huts etc).

Upstairs in the two’s room they have started to look at winter and they have been continuing with light and dark. They have been talking about the changes in the weather and what clothes they need to wear to keep warm. They have also been talking about artic animals and played with polar bears in the white water.
In the art area they have been making icy pictures with foil and some lovely penguins.

We hope you have a lovely weekend and we look forward to seeing you on Monday! Please post pictures of all the fun you have at home on the Learning Journals.

Fantastic Friday!

Welcome back to Fantastic Friday where we showcase the amazing work and play done in the nursery each week. This week at nursery we have been continuing to discuss light and dark; we made bright star pictures in art, talked about different kinds of lights, their energy sources and how we use them. We helped to make dark black play dough with sparkly glitter in it and we have been using covers and loose parts to create dark dens and cars to play in. We have also been very interested in different types of buildings that people and other animals can live in. We have been drawing our own homes and different types of buildings and have been constructing houses for ourselves using lots of different loose parts. We discussed and investigated homes from around the world and different shelters used by other animals.


We have had lots of fun building with our crates in the garden, rolling hoops, building houses and digging in the mud kitchen. We enjoyed going to the gym hall on Monday, showing off our climbing, balancing, jumping and rolling. We have been busy completing difficult puzzles and were very kind helping each other complete them. We have also been playing a fun dinosaur matching game, we demonstrated our amazing matching skills, discussing what makes them the same and different and learning all the complicated names.

Thank you to everyone who donated for children in need and dressed in their pyjamas! We hope you have a great weekend and we look forward to seeing you all on Monday! Please post some pictures of all the fun you have at home on the learning journals!
