This Week’s Learning
Week commencing Monday 9th December
A jam-packed week in Nursery preparing our singing voices for our winter show!
This week in the Nursery the children have been learning about winter. We said goodbye to autumn and hello to winter by talking about shorter days and longer nights and wrapping up warm to play outside. The children discussed what we need to wear in winter to keep warm and looked at winter things such as snow, ice, frost and robins. The children even found some frost on the stage in the garden to ‘ice-skate’ on. We also had a winter sensory table with real ice bergs for our penguins and polar bears. It was great fun!
In maths this week the children have been ordering their numbers 1-10 to make number lines. The children did this by making a number line out of children and then by making one across our circle on the carpet. We also sang song with the numbers going both up and down from ten. Why not try and make a number line over the weekend!
In natural thinkers this week the children looked at how winter has changed the garden and they checked up on how the fava beans and garlic were growing. The children have been enjoying the sun this week but sadly no more muddy puddles.
At the creative table this week the children have been making jolly puddings and snowmen to continue to add to our festive decorations in Nursery. Make sure you come and have a look when you are next in Nursery.
