Nursery Learning- 10.03.23

 Nursery Learning- 10.03.23

Thank you to those who were able to attend our Stay and Play session on Tuesday. The children loved having you in the environment and showing you what they do each day. Below is the blog that went out, just in case you missed it. 

Parents Stay and Play Blog

This week we have been focusing on the story 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. Each day the children have read the story and taken part in activities based on it. Our first activity was to plant a magic bean, just like Jack did. Each child got their own pot which they filled with cotton wool and a seed. They then put water on it to make the wool wet. We spoke about what we thought might happen to the seed and what that would look like. The conversations were really interesting, some children using their imaginations and linking their answers to the story and some children using their knowledge of the world and what they have seen growing in their environment. 

The children also took part in some arts and crafts, making different scenes from the story... 

And the children even made their own beanstalks using playdough...

They also made the castle that Jack found at the top of the beanstalk.

This week was another fun week in the snack area. The children got a chance to try lots of different fruits. The children were encouraged to talk about what they were tasting. Did they think it was sweet or sour? Delicious or disgusting? What did or didn't they like about it? 

We are also working on the skill of spreading. The children have bagels and chose what they want to put on it. They are getting better and better at spreading the butter, jam and marmalade! 

We have been exploring a range of instruments this week, looking at the different ways we can play them. We have practised playing them LOUDLY and quietly, quickly and slowly and to a beat. 

We have just had some new sofas delivered for the children's home corner and they are loving them. We make sure the home corner is set up for the children to explore every day but they children always make it their own and change it around, Sometimes the sofa is a sofa, sometimes it's an 'office', sometimes it's a 'bed'. The list goes on! We love seeing how creative they are and how confident they are in their own environment!
