Week 8 in Nursery

This week in Nursery the children have continued to explore the theme of Harvest and be thankful for the food we eat. On Monday we went to celebrate Harvest at the church. We sang our Harvest song ‘The farmer plants his seed.’

In Literacy we read a book called The Little Red Hen. This story was about a hen who planted a single grain of wheat to make bread. When the wheat grew nice and tall, she harvested it, grinded it into flour, and then used the flour to make bread. This gave us a fantastic idea, just like the Little Red Hen, we made our very own bread too. Unlike the characters in the story, we were very helpful and we worked together to make the bread!

We used plain flour, self-rising flour, salt, bicarbonate of soda and buttermilk to make our bread. It was delicious!

In maths we have been learning about prepositions and using positional language to describe where objects are. 

Where is Emerald? Is he on top of the box? Is he inside of the box? Is he next to the box?

In phonics we have been developing our oral blending and segmenting skills. We have been listening carefully to phonemes in words and remembering them in the order in which they occur. This week’s letter of the week in Nursery is ‘m.’

On Wednesday we had a Halloween party in Nursery. We got dressed up in scary costumes, made Halloween crafts and had party food. We had lots of scary fun!

We made pumpkin lanterns, handprint ghosts and spooky biscuits.

As we approach the end of the first half term, Miss Pounder would like to say a massive thank you to all parents for their continued help and support!

Keep checking Nursery’s webpage to find out what we have been getting up to! Next half term we look forward to learning about Bonfire night, exploring day and night and of course……… We are super excited for the countdown to Christmas!!!!!!!
