Welcome to Nursery with Miss Scott and Mrs Ellor!smiley

Hope you are all happy and healthy and learning lots of new things at home. Please check the Nursery class page daily for some Literacy and Maths learning challenges! Please email me with pictures of your completed home learning challenges! I will also continue to post extra activities in the extra documents list, which is located below the learning challenges on the class page.
Our second week of home learning challenges is almost complete! I have absolutely loved our ‘hero’ topic this week and I have really enjoyed seeing what you have all managed to make and create at home. Thank you again to all of the parents that have emailed me with pictures and work this week, I have absolutely loved seeing what you have been getting up to! Have a lovely weekend and keep working hard Nursery, I look forward to sharing lots of new and exciting learning opportunities with you next week, just before our Easter break. ๐Ÿ˜€

RE- Weekend beginning Friday 3rd April (to be completed today or over the weekend)

This weekend is a special weekend in our religion as we will celebrate ‘Palm Sunday’, the beginning of Holy Week, the final week of Lent. Palm Sunday marks the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem. Palm leaves were waved as Jesus entered, to show goodness and victory. I would like you to watch this short video clip on Palm Sunday:

I would then like you to make your own palm leaves. You may choose to make these by collecting some leaves from your garden and painting these green to print onto some paper or you may decide to draw and colour some palm leaves, or maybe something else! Please stick your palm leaves onto your doors or windows on Sunday. 

Please email me with a photograph of your fantastic palm leaves once you have made them. I have attached a few ideas below. I look forward to seeing them.

Literacy home learning challenge- Friday 3rd April 2020

This week we are going to be thinking about the heroes that are helping us to stay safe.

I was very impressed with all of your fantastic superhero masks and vehicles yesterday!๐Ÿฆธ๐Ÿผ‍โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿฆน๐Ÿฝ‍โ™€๏ธ
Superheroes have super hearing, so today I would like you to go outside in your garden and see what you can hear. I would like you to name and draw some of the things that you can hear and recall the sound that each of the things that you hear begin with.

I could hear a bird outside, I know that bird begins with the ‘b’ sound. 

Challenge: Can you write the initial sound for each of the things that you hear next to your drawing? E.g. You can hear a bird, this begins with the ‘b’ sound, can you write this sound next to your drawing? 

Maths home learning challenge- Friday 3rd April 2020

This week we are going to be focusing on numbers 1-5.

Today I would like you to make some superhero essentials with a certain amount of items, these items could be anything that you have in your house, e.g Lego, building blocks, boxes etc. 

-Can you make a superhero tower using 4 items?

-Can you make a superhero door for your tower using 1 item? 

-Can you make a superhero vehicle using 5 items?

-Can you make some wings for your vehicle using 3 items for each wing? 

-Can you make a step to get into your super vehicle using 2 items? 

 

Challenge- Can you make something special for your superhero and count how many items you have used to create this? 

I made a special wand for my superhero, after I had made it I counted each of the items and I had used 8 items to create this.

We used lots of different shapes to create something unique!๐Ÿ”ต๐Ÿ”บ๐ŸŸจ

This weeks maths home learning challenges have required the children to recognise shapes within the environment. With the different shaped items that the children have found throughout the week, they created something unique and used the shapes appropriately for their chosen creation. 

Spreading positivity with rainbows! 

This week Nursery have been making beautiful rainbows at home, as part of Wednesdays home learning challenge! I have really enjoyed seeing the different, unique ways which each child has chosen to create their rainbow! 

Well done everybody, they are fantastic! ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜€

Below I have attached some of the documents included in the 'home learning pack' for anybody that needs any spare sheets. I will continue to add to this list with extra activities that you might like to complete, so please continue to check the list and don’t hesitate to email me if there is anything else that you might need.

Look who jumped out of our oven... the gingerbread man! 

After dinner time we were so shocked to find out that the gingerbread man had escaped from our oven! We explored the spice ginger each looking and smelling the ginger and discussing what the ginger looked and smelt like. We then carefully passed around the gingerbread man, being extremely careful that he did not run away, to discuss what he looked and smelt like. The gingerbread man had left us some tasty gingerbread treats for snack... they were delicious! 

 

Pancake day! 

Today we learnt about lent. We discussed lent, speaking about what lent is, why lent happens and when lent happens; we also discussed why we make pancakes on pancake day with the ingredients flour, eggs and milk. We then watched Peppa Pig and her family make pancakes which helped us to remember the method used to make the pancake batter. After that we used milk, flour and eggs to make the pancake batter together. We then cooked the pancakes, chose our own toppings and tasted the pancakes...yummy! 

Children’s Mental Health Week 

This week we have been taking part in Children’s Mental Health Week. We have been talking about our feelings and emotions. We worked in our key worker groups and discussed the different emotions that we may feel and why we might feel like this. Then we each shared experiences of times when we have been happy and sad.

Chinese New Year!

This week we have been exploring Chinese new year! The children have loved making noodles using playdough, making Chinese dragons, painting our sounds using Chinese symbols and using chopsticks to write Chinese number symbols in the glitter! We have also tasted Chinese food, yum!

We investigated what happened when ice was put into the fridge, on top of the radiator and on the table in the classroom, this is what happened...
