Spring Term A
The role play area has been transformed into a café area with different roles for the children to take on. Two chefs, a waitress/waiter and some customers. The adults supported the children to carry out the tasks and understand the roles, developing their language and communication skills.
Goldilocks and the Three Bears
The children enjoyed this familiar traditional tale and loved joining in with the story, remembering the repeated refrains. They used masks to re-enact the story using different voices for each character.
They all tasted porridge and recorded if they liked it or not using a pictogram in small groups. Most of the children had a try and liked it, even wanting seconds!
Chinese New Year
The cafe area has been changed into a Chinese restaurant this week. The children tasted noodles and prawn crackers. They then recorded their likes and dislikes.
Nursery developed their scissor control by making a Chinese lantern and mark making skills to decorate a dancing dragon.
We all learned to sing a new Chinese New Year song together.
Week 4 and 5
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
The children have enjoyed and explored this classic story which is always a favourite.
We made some fabulous pictures for a wall display including large collage caterpillars, small printed caterpillars and symmetrical painted butterflies.
Nursery talked about and produced the life cycle of the butterfly and made some delicious fruit kebabs.
