What have we been learning?
Term 1 is all about settling in and getting to know the other children, the grown ups and exploring the nursery environment. Some children in Molly’s have even been exploring the neighbourhood outside nursery on a trip to the postbox in the buggy bus.
We have been finding out our key worker, which key group we are in and sharing stories about our key group animal or insect. In Green room they are either a fox, a hedgehog, or badger. In Blue room they are butterflies, bees or ladybirds, and in Molly’s they are giraffes, elephants or crocodiles. Which key group is your child in?
We have been using lots of natural resources to enhance our learning. We were excited to pop open the spiky horse chestnut cases to discover the smooth, shiny conkers inside. We used the conkers for painting, sorting, counting, rolling and adding to play dough creations. We have been using crab apples, pine cones and other found objects for cooking in the mud kitchen.
We were pleased to welcome back Kelly from The Children’s Kitchen. She will be coming in every week to support groups of children with food exploration, cooking and gardening activities. The children explored, chopped, prepared and tasted vegetables provided by Fair Share as well as some courgettes grown in our very own kitchen garden.
It has been lovely to see how well the children have settled in at nursery and we look forward to sharing more of their learning with you.
