Welcome back children πŸ‘Ά were so happy πŸ˜ƒ to see you all …..

Reading books πŸ“š aloud To your child πŸ‘Ά stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the big new world around them🌍. It also helps them develop fundamental speaking and listening πŸ‘‚ Skills and prepares them to understand the written world. Most of all have fun Reading πŸ“–…..

We found a secret door πŸšͺ🀫

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 🎭

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 !….

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…..
