Spring Term 1

This half term we have looked at some well-known stories. Starting off with Goldilocks and The Three Bears, children used actions to help remember the story and the repeated phrases. As we are now beginning to make marks to represent our thinking, some children drew pictures as they talked about their favourite part of the story. Our role-play area reflected the book and we used the language of size to talk about the small, medium and large objects in the house.
Moving onto The Gingerbread Man, children helped us to write a list of ingredients that were needed to make our own biscuits. We were worried that a fox might try to get into nursery to eat the biscuits! After researching that foxes can jump and climb, children made a large wall to protect us from any fox invasions. Using chalk outside, children drew a picture of a large fox and a sign saying ‘No foxes in here’. Rainbow class children made their own biscuits to enjoy at home. Unfortunately, one biscuit had escaped and ran through nursery. This caused a lot of excitement! We are still looking for him now.
Due to the cold weather, we have had the chance to play outside in the snow and spotted ice everywhere. We even left numicon plates outside and water froze around them. We are encouraging children to become independent at getting ready to play outside. It is always tricky to learn how to fasten a zip on a coat, so we are working hard to help children master this skill.
Have a wonderful half term holiday. I hope the freezing temperatures start to improve!
