Our IPC topic this half term is 'Lets Pretend'
Independence and Interdependence
The children will have the opportunity to take on different roles in different contexts when they explore traditional tales. They will need to co-operate within a small group and express their own ideas when taking part in roleplay.
This unit focuses on traditional stories and rhymes and gives the children many opportunities to observe, explore and enjoy the use of print. We will create stories and be creative through music drama and dance.
The children will have the opportunity to express their feelings when taking part in mime activities — making sad and happy faces.
We used costume and props to act out the story of Little Red Riding Hood.
The Nursery follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. We will learn by playing, exploring, being active and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both indoors and outside.
We would appreciate a voluntary contribution of £5 per a term. This funds our ingredients for playdough and cooking activities.
If you have any questions, please come and see us in the Nursery!
The Nursery Team
We have been reading 'Pepetuna' by Denise Whitmore.
We made a tree for Pepetuna to live in at Nursery. We hope Pepetuna will visit us soon!
We talked about patterns and symmetry as we created our own Pepetuna to hang on the tree.
Drawing a house for Pepetuna.
When Pepetuna is in the tree he sleeps, eats, wriggles and hides.
We made different sized caterpillars out of playdough and used cubes to measure their length.
There has been a growing interest in building in St Nicholas class this half term. The big blocks have been a favourite along with the click bricks and the magnet blocks. Children have been using their imagination to turn the blocks into wonderful and exciting things like firetrucks, cars, planes and towers.
Balance and coordination.
In RE we have learning about our Easter.
We explored the cross on hot cross buns and talked about why they are special during Easter. We also got to taste them - yum!
We lit the story candle and talked about Jesus dying on the cross and rising again. We talked about how it made Christians feel and showed happy, angry and sad using our faces.
