Acorn Class have had a very busy week again this week! We started off the week learning about the Hindu festival Diwali. We watched a video about a family celebrating and talked about all the traditions and celebrations that took place. We made beautiful Rangoli patterns on the playground using poster paint.
We read ‘Owl Babies’ this week and all the children enjoyed colouring a feather to add to our large class owl. (I will add a photo of the finished product on Monday 😊)
We have proudly hung our bunting up in the outside area today. The children all worked hard to create their own flag and I am sure you will agree that it looks great! A big thank you to Mr Kozlowski for helping us to put it up.
Acorn class have been working really hard this week to be independent and put on and take off their own shoes and coats. It has been amazing to see the determination and perseverance from the children with this. Please do continue to encourage this at home!
Acorn Class have had a very busy week this week. Lots of the children had fun exploring the mud kitchen on Tuesday! They made mud cakes, dug big holes and mixed mud hot chocolate. Please send in an all in one suit and wellies if you haven’t already. The children get very muddy and dirty during this activity!
We made poppies on Wednesday and talked about why Remembrance Day is an important day. All the children participated in a two minute silence and we also watched the CBeebies Poppies video.
Nursery finished off the week by making bird feeders. We talked about why they help the birds in the winter and the children were very excited to take them home to hang them.
Wow! What a great start to the new term! The children have all come back to nursery with a big smile and ready to learn
We have started our new topic talking about the changes we can see outside, now that autumn is here and the cold weather is coming. We have been out for an autumn walk and collected leaves to make a 'leaf thread'. These have been hung up in the classroom in our topic area. If you get a chance to go out for a walk this weekend, talk to your child about the changes that you can see outside.
This week we have been learning a poem called 'Why do leaves go crispy?' The children have learnt this really well and we made up actions to go with it. Ask your child to tell you the poem and see if they can remember it!
