Last week, Nursery enjoyed learning all about the Harvest Festival. We looked at the story of bread, and we were shocked to find some flour had been left for us from Farmer Phil! We decided it was a great idea to make our very own bread, We loved looking at the changing texture as we made the dough, and we learnt how to knead. We couldn’t resist trying our bread once it had been baked, and sharing it with others.
We have loved reading the Bear Hunt Story in our Early Years setting. It is one of our five key texts this term and we adore it!
The children have enjoyed reciting the repetitive vocabulary and joining in with the corresponding actions. We have had fun recreating the bear hunt trail in our outdoor area! We waded through the long wavy grass, squelched through the thick oozy mud, splashed through the deep cold river and stumbled tripped through the big dark forest.
We have also enjoyed acting out the bear hunt story using the small world story props as well as sequencing key elements of the story. Some of the language the children have used has been incredible and we are very proud of them!
Nursery Blue groups have been enjoying their visits to forest school, which started again this term. The children have been busy making chocolate mud cakes, fishing in the Valley View pond, collecting and transporting with baskets, mud and stones. The children love using the magnifying glasses at the investigation table where they observe woodlice, worms, slugs, leaves and bark.
