Jungle fun finished with The Tiger who came to tea party
This week we have been sharing the story Superworm. We have read the story, talked about the characters and settings. We have explored patterns, sorted worms of different lengths, made symmetrical worm pictures and written shopping lists to buy the ingredients for our chocolate mousse Superworm. We have talked about different minibeasts and looked at rhyming words.

Hello Nursery we hope everyone enjoyed the Whit holidays. We are finally back and beginning to get back into some kind of normality. It was absolutely wonderful seeing everyone on the Zoom chats. Mrs Barter and I have made a little video of the class room set up and it is on Tapestry please share with your child before returning. We will continue to send home learning ideas on Tapestry and look forward to your photo's and video clips.
We can't wait to see everyone.
Take care and see you soon.

Hello Nursery hope you had a wonderful weekend enjoying the sunshine. It has been fantastic seeing all the photographs and videos you are posting on Tapestry.
This week is Mental Health Awareness week. The theme this year is kindness. I would like everyone to spread a little kindness this week. Ring a friend you haven't spoke to in a while, bake a cake. I would also like children and adults alike to do one thing each day that makes them happy. It could be closing your eyes and listen to the birds outside, go for a walk, paint a picture eat your favourite meal.
It would be lovely if you shared some of your acts of kindness and happiness on Tapestry.
Monday 11th May Hello nursery hope you all enjoyed the beautiful weather this weekend. It has been wonderful looking at you photographs on Tapestry. I have been out and about taking a walk in the fresh air and thought I would make my walk a little more interesting by turning it into a hunt for colours. When you are out walking maybe you could set a challenge to look for colours, animals, mimibeasts, or anything you can imagine. Here are my photographs, look forward to seeing yours. Miss Peek X

Spring is definitely in the air the flowers are growing, there are blossoms on the trees, the birds are out singing and the sun is shining. Lots of animals are starting to have their babies. So this week I though I would add a little quiz to see if you can name the baby animals. Once you have finished the quiz perhaps you could draw a picture of your favourite baby animal. You could even have a look at Cbeebies and complete the jigsaw puzzles on 'Down on the farm'.

This week I thought we could have some fun with play dough. On Tapestry in the documents section I have added a folder with some ideas to use with dough.
In Nursery we follow dough disco most days (Funky feet playdough disco) I have added this to tapestry where you can find the link. All you need is a ball of dough and a partner. We love this activity. Why not try making some of your own dough too! It's really easy and lots of fun! I have added the recipe on Tapestry.
Look forward to seeing your photographs.

Good Morning Nursery. How are you today? I know a few of you have mentioned how much you are missing school. How about making a mini Willows in your house. You will need teddies/dolls/toys to be your class an you can be the teacher. You could make a little sound wall and sing the jolly phonics jingle for each sound. You could even show your class how to write the letter shapes correctly. Maybe you could show your class how to count and choose your own number of the week. Remember to start your day with the register and sing the days of the week song. You could always read your class a story. This is a good way to create a familiar role play, which will encourage feelings of safety and security. In Nursery we also have a big picture for the day. This is a selection of photographs/pictures of our school day (mini timetable). Perhaps you could make one for home and stick it up so you can change it daily. You could include your home learning, breakfast, lunch, chilling time, playing in the garden, exercise time. You can get pictures from Twinkl or draw/make your own or use photographs. It's a great starting point to any morning.
We hope you have a lovely weekend and look forward to seeing your posts.
