Animals ๐Ÿท ๐Ÿ„ ๐Ÿถ ๐Ÿˆ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿฆ

week 1 we took a look at farm animals….

We painted paper plates then made them into animal masks…

We all went outside to collect sticks so we could hold our masks ๐ŸŽญ

We all played with our masks on, making animals sounds! Can you guess who is who??

We all went to feed and clean the school pets too….

Week 2 & 3 we looked at pets and then wild animals. We read some animal books and played in the animal den !….

Spring Growing

Planting is a great way of introducing children of all ages to the pleasure of growing different types of food. Greens usually sprout out in a few days and the excitement of seeing the greens poking out of the soil is an amazing experience for children.
This form of activity create daily chore for the children as they feel responsible to water and care for the plant on a regular basis.

In the 2YO Nursery, planting has been our focused point of learning for the past 2 weeks .The children have loved every second of it , planting bean seeds, watering and the excitement of seeing their bean sprout of the soil.

Here, are some pictures of the children planting bean and sunflower seeds in their little pots.

Flower Stamp Printing

It has been great welcoming most of the children back at Nursery. We have loved learning and exploring together for the past week.

We hope you have a lovely and restful Easter break.

The 5 Senses

Symphony of the Five Senses | Language Kids World

The last three weeks in 2 year old nursery have been all about THE 5 SENSES.

SMELL

We went outside to smell the different herbs in our outdoor area.

Bath bombs were placed in the water tray which added a lovely sweet smell to the area as well as lots of bubbles. The sensory area had lots of interesting objects dangling from above, what did the children smell on the sponges, I wonder?

TOUCH

The children enjoyed the feel of shaving foam and the dolls were spotless after such a foamy experience. There was lots of playdough fun too, the children squished it, rolled it, pulled it apart and pressed it flat.

What else did the children do that involved touch?

TASTE

During snack time we taste lots of different yummy healthy snacks, such as crackers and cheese, toast, breadsticks and a yogurt and cucumber dip. Not forgetting, lots of different fruit such as apples, bananas and pears.

We also had a tasting activity to try some new things. We saw some funny faces and reactions when some of the children tried lemon.

SIGHT

The children use their sight for everything that they do here in nursery. They love watching the chickens and LOOK at the eggs they laid! What else can you see below?

HEARING

The children made shakers with plastic bottles and coloured rice. We used them during our singing sessions, they made a lovely sound. We also got out our box full of musical instruments to hear what other sounds we could make.

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY

Enjoy seeing how the children created these amazing cards for Mothers day!!

We look forward to seeing you all next week, when we will be doing lots of spring planting and watching how the plants grow over the next few weeks. Have a wonderful weekend!!

In 2 year old nursery for the last two weeks we joined in the RSBP big garden bird watch….

We all went on to the school field to look for birds flying in the sky and perching in the trees.
one of the houses at the back of our school has A Harris Hawk called Oli and it swooped down to grab some food….. it was amazing…. we saw lots of different types of birds.

We also made bird feeders and fat balls for the birds to eat…

We all made beautiful painted birds from paper plates and coloured in bird pictures using lots of different colours…..

We had our very own bird hide in nursery, it had insects in it !!
We listened to the birds singing and chirping while in the bird hide….

We filled our sand tray with……YES….birds seeds, we used our fingers to feel all the different textures…..

Welcome To Spring Term 1

It has been lovely welcoming all our new starters . They have all been great settling into Nursery and made a good start to the term.

We began the spring term focusing on Snow and Ice . We were lucky to have lots of snow to play with . The children had fun exploring in the snow, playing with snowballs , making foot prints and made a gigantic snowman with the help of Mrs Bah.

To further the interest of the children, we have been finding out about animals that live in the cold weather.

Animals that live in cold weather

We enhanced the water tray with animals that can survive in the cold. These included penguins, bears, seals and snow wolves.

It has been a fantastic three weeks exploring the world around us and we can’t wait for yet another great week ahead which we will be focusing on birds.

Festival of light ( Diwali)

As a school we endeavour to celebrate the cultures of all our people. This makes our people feel included and being part of the community as a whole.

In 2y0 nursery, we commenced the week celebrating the festival of light as our focus for the week. On our creative table, we made sand dough Rangoli light to which the children enjoyed decorating. We also made lanterns to decorate with different coloured glitter.

Happy Diwali !


The children explored in coloured sand, They enjoyed scooping,feeling ,moulding and filling into pots and pans.

We have extended the children’s learning by looking at things that we can see at night. We looked at stars, moon and pretended to explore the dark by turning the lights in our room.. The children also enjoyed making marks and created lovely patterns with chalk. The pictures below is a representation of their thought and imaginations in play.

We have had a fantastic two weeks exploring about light and dark . We look forward to yet another great week ahead.

Have a lovely weekend!

Turn a crayon on to its side, put a leaf under your paper and rub your crayon over the paper….
