Term 3 Review

This term has been a cold one! We have talked about the season of winter and explored the natural environment. We have talked and commented about the changes we could see and feel and discussed how to keep ourselves warm. The children took a particular Interest in ice which they found outside. We explored this further by freezing our own water with lots of fun objects in to see what would happen to it. Following a snowy weekend the children couldn’t wait to talk about what they did. This sparked an interest in using different materials to make our own snowmen.

We have continued to develop our maths skills by looking at shapes. We made our own shape monsters, printed shapes with potatoes and looked at matching and grouping shapes.

Children continued exploring alliteration and rhyme during our phonic sessions. We learnt some new games such as ‘odd one out’ rhyming pairs’ and ‘rhyming bingo’. We began exploring matching objects to letters to see if we could hear the initial sound.

Following the children’s interest we looked at the topic space. We explored this through stories and role play and learnt some exciting new words! The children have also shown an interest in dinosaurs this term. We have explored this through small world play and went on our own dinosaur hunt in the forest.

 

We looked at Chinese New Year and talked about their special celebrations. We tried Chinese food and explored rice and noodles through play. We talked about ‘year of the pig’ and read the zodiac story. We made Chinese lanterns and had a go at Chinese writing on special fans we made.  

Term 2 Review

This term has been all about Christmas. We have been very busy and have had lots of Christmas activities around nursery to promote children’s own creative ideas. The children learnt the Christmas story for their nativity. They did a fantastic job at getting on the stage to sing and say lines! We have enjoyed exploring the play-doh with Christmas smells such as peppermint and cinnamon. We even drew pictures of what we wanted Father Christmas to bring us and had a go at writing our own name.

Through child led play the children took an interest in the story ‘The Gingerbread man’. We have followed this interest throughout nursery by re-telling the story with props and decorating our own gingerbread man to eat. We used cotton buds to paint our gingerbread man to help develop our fine motor skills.

We have continued to develop our counting skills in maths by reciting numbers to 10 and beyond. We have begun developing our understanding of matching numeral to quantity and explored the concept of adding numbers all together. Children began exploring alliteration and rhyme during our phonic session through the game ‘silly soup’.


Term 1 Review

The children have had their first forest sessions this term and have loved it! They have been brilliant at putting on their own waterproofs and wellington boots. They have explored the natural resources to make their own cakes and soups. Using their gross motor skills they have been climbing nets and swinging on the tyres.

This term has all been about colours. We have explored colours through lots of different means; such as messy play (shaving foam and paint), through plastic and painting lovely pictures.

Through child led play the children have been into the story ‘ The Three Little Pigs’. We have followed this interest throughout nursery by re- telling the story, making masks and building houses. Don’t they look great!
