The children have returned from their holidays and enjoyed sharing their news. Some of the children have visited India, Turkey and the UK and were keen to talk about the differences in the environments. The children were particularly interested in the types of animals that can be found in other countries, especially ‘elephants.’ We read the story Elmer by David McKee and noticed the animals appearance and their different patterns and colours. We learnt that zebras have a black and white repeat pattern and tigers have a orange, black and white repeat pattern. This linked nicely to our maths lessons of pattern and shape. We have also enjoyed painting jungle animals and are beginning to hear and write some initial sounds.
The children have settled into Nursery and are beginning to explore all the environment inside and out. Please remember to send your child with a coat as it can be a bit chilly out of doors first thing in the morning.
We love the mud kitchen! It has been restocked with all new utensils! 😍
We have fairies and dragons in Nursery. 🧚♀️ 🧚♂️
