We can’t believe it’s the end of another term in Nursery! The children have really grown this term with their social skills, communication and independence and it is a joy to be a part of this every day. The children have been working hard on their number sense and phonics, and the progress we have seen, has been amazing. They are also able to transfer the skills they have learnt into their free flow. Linked to our text Cave Baby, the children have been learning about babies. We have looked at difference and similarities between ourselves and them. As some children have younger siblings at home, they enjoyed sharing what they were able to do and how they help with them.
The children enjoyed making baby food during free flow. We discussed how it needed to be ‘smooth’ as babies don’t have any teeth to chew food. We discussed what parts of the body milk is good, and how it helps us grow. Children have again been busy in the mud kitchen, enjoying water and messy play and using their imagination to make some junk modelling creations. They are also developing their problem solving skills, as the adults ask the children to think of other ways of making things work.
It was fantastic to finally be able to put on a show for the parents, and we were all so proud of how the children learnt their song, and preformed it on the stage, at our Spring Concert. We hope you all enjoyed the fantastic singing, which brought a tear to so many adults in the room! The children (and adults) enjoyed the stay and play, and it was great to finally have parents in the classroom! The children enjoyed showing their adult what they can do, and what we have available to them in Nursery. It was also nice to see the children still following the routines and showing their adults how we do the ‘stop sign’, and telling them “you now have to stop!” Thank you for all the homework which was handed in.
We hope you enjoy our break, Happy Easter to those who are celebrating and enjoy the time with your families.
