Nursery News ~ 9th July 2021
Well we managed it for the first time ever – a whole week with the cabin shut and all of our mornings spent outdoors. We have been dough discoing in the fire circle to Connie’s disco choice of song “I’m Gonna Be” by The Proclaimers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZ4Ib-7fJqY We have surely walked those 500 miles now? We have continued our work on shortest, tallest and the same as we had to find someone and something that was taller than us, shorter than us and the same as us. Can you remember which objects you found? We then had a go at working as a team to build a short and tall tower with the challenge of building one the same height. We had fun with Phonics in the forest as we have been searching for the animals pig, cat, dog and hen and hunting down our own letter sound. Can you remember which colour was yours?
In Forest School with Mrs Allen, you have been talking about summer and creating a list of summer words. The sandpit had a revamp as the new buckets and spades made an appearance and in keeping with the talk of football, some popular flags were added to your creations. In the afternoons you have been talking about travelling abroad on an aeroplane (if only!) and you had fun creating an aeroplane using the crates. I wonder which exotic location you travelled to? There has been a lot of gully play this week as the water is always welcome to cool us down and a popular choice of play was decorating the fence with your paint/water. We have also enjoyed lots of talk of the football thanks to Joseph and Ralph wearing those England tops – our dough disco song next week is football themed but we have a backup song choice if it all goes wrong at the weekend!
A message for parents – thank you to those who joined in with our ‘Break the Rules day’ today. Who would have thought being able to bring in your own unhealthy snack would create such excitement!
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
Mrs Mander and the Nursery Team. X
