Last week was a really busy week in Nursery! Following the excitement of our Hallowe’en day (see previous post), lots of the children attended the Parent Council Disco, thank you for your support!
We also welcomed Miss Campbell, an MA3 Primary Education student who will be joining us in nursery for 4 weeks.
Last week we also had fun with sensory playdough. Adding oils or essences to your playdough makes it interesting and relaxing for the children to play with. We added peppermint essence to ours last week and the children loved it!
As you might be able to spot, a lot of the playdough this week was inspired by the hedgehogs that we made from saltdough before the holidays! The children made wonderful saltdough hedgehog models which they painted and we left them to dry out over the holidays. Last week the children created safe spaces for their hedgehogs to hibernate and they were invited to take them home to look after over winter!
We enjoyed playing with our buddy class on Friday! The children are starting to build positive relationships with their buddies and the older children are really supportive of our nursery children!
We ended the week with some Bonfire Night activities! We spoke about firework safety as well as creating amazing firework pictures which were displayed in the nursery. For snack on Friday we had Firework Apples! (Sliced apples dipped in chocolate and then dipped in sprinkles!) The children really enjoyed them!
