Here are some of the activities we have been doing in
Nursery this term!
The children in Squirrels have been getting ready for Christmas! We have lots of lovely decorations up in our room, and some Christmassy books to read. We have also had lots of fun making and painting salt dough decorations to take home.
The Acorns children have been getting ready for Christmas! We have lovely Christmas decorations and displays around our room and in our role play area. We have been making Christmas cards using lots of multi-sensory decorations and spices, and have enjoyed retelling the Christmas story using our nativity sets.
On Children in Need day we came to Nursery in spotty clothes or our pyjamas and onesies! We looked at the CiN website and talked about why we needed to raise money. Then we had popcorn and hot chocolate and watched the Hey Duggee Pudsey Badge! Events like Children in Need help us understand more about where we live and the lives of other children. We learn that it is good to help each other.
We invited our grown ups to come and take part in a cooking workshop with us, run by Somerset Skills and Learning. We made our own pizza, including the base, and put lots of different toppings on it. We also made fruit salad. This activity helped to develop our fine motor skills as we were cutting up the vegetables and fruit. We had special knives to use and learnt the importance of cutting carefully, keeping our fingers out of the way.
We went to the Brewhouse Theatre to see "Flip, Flap and Fly!" - a play about a baby bird learning to fly! We had a wonderful time and loved joining in with the actors.
This term in Acorns we have been settling in to our nursery routines. We have enjoyed turn taking games to get to know our new friends. We have also been getting to know our key person through our play and adult led activities. We love singing time and taking part in the songs!
