This half term we have enjoyed:
Making our own toast at snack time. We learnt that the toaster was hot and we should only touch it with a grown up. We chose whether we wanted butter, jam or marmite on our toast. Carefully we used a knife to spread our choice and cut our toast.
After a discussion about things that our mummies liked, we have made cakes. We will decorate them and given them to our mummies to thank them for all the things that they help us with.
We have also been developing our pre-reading skills by investigating the sounds that different musical instruments make.
We have been scientists and had the opportunity to enjoy colour mixing.
We have been learning some Makaton signs. Our signs of the week have been ..... Please .....Thank you
The nursery follows a child-led approach to teaching. Children are born with a natural desire to explore and learn and our staff members support them in this. We have created an enabling and stimulating environment to enable us to do this. We do not plan ahead, rather we remain ‘in the moment’ with the children as they explore and learn. We observe the children carefully and enhance their learning by teaching them in their chosen activity.
If you would like any further information about any of the activities we enjoy at nursery, please look at our planning board or ask a member of staff.
