What we have been up to…

July 10, 2015

We’ve had lots of fun at nursery this week and have done lots of different things. Here’s a few of the activities we have had a go at this week:

Lots of us made clocks with paper plates, split pins, and numbers to stick on. We have looking at the time and focusing on “o’clock”, we looked at our nursery clock and stuck our numbers in the correct order, we then moved the hands to different times such as when we come to nursery, when we have lunch and when we go home. Some of the children have taken their clocks home but some are still here ready to be collected.

We’ve also used plates to make monsters this week, some of you may have heard of the book “Monstersaurus”, well it’s a firm favourite at nursery. So this week we mixed up our own monster potions and created our very own monster friends. The children enjoyed adding their own ingredients to the potion, we had baked beans, a cucumber and a horse among other things!

We’ve been busy constructing this week with the usual duplo but also with bendy straws and “Octons”, the children have used their imagination and construction skills to build many different models. In fact this week we have been doing lots of activities with our fine motor skills, as well as all of the above we have also been threading with pasta and cotton reels.

Demi made some bright blue playdough which we have all had lots of fun playing with, we’ve been making cakes and tasty ice lollies.

Thank you for all the boxes that you have given us for junk modelling, today we have made some great models for the children to take home, from a crane, to a fire engine, we’ve hardly got any boxes left!

And finally on Wednesday we had a mini sports day, we played several team games and had a variety of races, the children seemed to enjoy the welly toss the most. There was lots of encouragement from the children to their friends and this year some of the events even went as planned, which is quite an achievement with children aged 1-4!

There are a few summer fayres on at the moment. Southwood infant have theirs on Saturday at 10-2pm, it costs £1 per family and looks like it will be lots of fun!

Have a lovely weekend and don’t forget to send in photos of what you have been up to.  Lauren
