This week we have celebrated Chinese New Year with our friends. As part of the day we listened to different pieces of music. We chose our favourite and performed a dragon dance to it. We had to go up, down and around like the real dragon dancers.
We have some new visitors this week. We are being real life superheroes and looking after two Guinea pigs. We will help to feed them and check they have water.
Today we took part in the national bird count. We saw two pigeons and four crows!
We used our binoculars to look up 8th the trees.
This week we have started listening to the stories Jesus would have heard when he was a little boy. We decided to make our own arks and fill them with animals. The story is really good for supporting our counting.
On Monday this week 2 fishes came to visit Nursery. We are going to use our super friend hands to help look after them.
This half term our topic is superheroes. The children have set up a hero small world area and made their own superheroes to have adventures in it. We shall be hearing all about superheroes both in stories and those who help us in real life.
After listening to the story of funny bones we had a chat about the skeleton inside us. All children could show me where there was a bone in their body and thanks to the story could find their skull. We will continue to name body parts including wrist, ankle and hips.
We have had a lot of fun in the past two weeks exploring our new unit. We have met new children and tried new activities. Nursery parents are very welcome to stay and play for the first 15 minutes of every day.
The children were very excited to dance to their very own Rock band. We joined in with a song all about keeping trying when things get tricky.
