Light and Colours
During this week we celebrated events and festivals to do with light and colour. On the 5th November, Fireworks Night and 7th November, the festival of Diwali.
We painted fireworks using wax crayons and paints.
We watched a film about the story of Rama and Sita @ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRpNNF4fB4g
The children made Diwali lamps from clay, which they decorated.
This week we have been thinking about listening to the different sounds we can hear in and around school. We made 'listening ears' and visited the main school to listen to different sounds. See if your child can tell you what sounds they can hear at home or when you are outside.
This week we have been reading the story called Red Rockets and Rainbow Jelly written by Sue Heap. It shows two children who like different things. it also has lots of colours in it. One page shows different coloured jelly so ..we made jelly. The children enjoyed eating it for their snack and could talk about what it tasted like.
You can find the story on Youtube @ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=--BKVZWWUvE
This week we have been able to welcome the rest of the children joining the nursery this year. The weather has been kind to us and the children have enjoyed playing outside in the big playground with the bikes, the chalks and 'painting' the floor with water.
We have been learning about the language of size and have been describing objects using the words 'long', 'short', 'big' and 'small'. We have also been singing 'Heads, shoulders, knees and toes'.
We are looking forward to working with all of the children during the next few weeks.
The nursery team would like to welcome all the children who have joined the nursery this week. They are all settling in well, enjoying painting, playing in the water and sand and the home corner. They all enjoy the outside area, and have been 'driving' the car and using the mud kitchen. We were also able to use the bikes on the big playground on Friday afternoon.
We have been singing nursery rhymes. A favourite at the moment is 'The wheels on the bus'. We have also been learning 'Miss Polly had a dolly'. If you would like to sing this with your child it can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgsgH0lkQTI&vl=en
We shall look forward to meeting the children who will join us next week.
