Beware of the crocodile🐊
This week in nursery we have been looking at a non-fiction book called ‘beware of the crocodile’. We found out lots of exciting facts about crocodiles and have been taking part in lots of activities about crocodiles. On Friday morning we couldn’t believe our eyes... there was a crocodile in our nursery! We used our knowledge of crocodiles to discuss where we think the crocodile had come from, why it might be in our nursery and what we were going to do. Mr McRae came to visit nursery to help us to find out whether the crocodile was a friendly crocodile or not. We made ‘found’ posters to stick around our school grounds, which included some descriptions of the crocodile and a picture of the crocodile.
Happy Diwali! 🪔
This week we made our very own Diwali Diva lamps out of clay to celebrate ‘Diwali’. We used our fine motor skills to mould the clay into a dish shape and we then designed and calved some repeating patterns around the side of our diva lamps. We then painted our diva lamps in a colour of our choice. We gathered together to celebrate Diwali by putting some candles into our diva lamps and lighting them to celebrate with traditional light. The children had so much fun!
Bonfire night potions🎨
This week we have been learning about ‘bonfire night’. The children in our class were extremely interested in and were excited about the bright colours which they could see in the fireworks. To explore their interest further, the children have been experimenting with colour mixing to make different coloured ‘potions’. They thoroughly enjoyed exploring different colours and mixing them together to see what colours they could make!
Bonfire night celebrations!
Our Harvest Collective Worship and Harvest day celebration 🌾
This week we have been learning all about ‘Autumn’. We looked at the story ‘we’re going on a leaf hunt’. We then went on our own Autumn walk/leaf hunt around our school grounds, to see what Autumn items we could find. We collected the items and put them into our bags.
Using the items that we collected, we made ‘Autumn people’. We spoke about and described our Autumn people, naming and describing the items that we used.
