This week in Nursery (wb 19.11)

New beginnings

We are delighted to welcome Melanie Higgins, our new member of staff and our new learners and their families this week. Melanie will be working with the Yellow group, don’t forget to say hi when you see her.

When you come into our nursery you will see we are busy making changes to our indoor environment – look out for our improved sensory area and changes to our bedtime story storage – remember you can choose books to have a cosy bedtime or anytime story at home.

Taste challenge – pickled onions and beetroot

AM nursery learners were willing to have a go of our new tastes they were fascinated how the beetroot turned their fingers red.

“tasty” “good” “yummy” and even a “yucky

PM learners were a bit more reluctant to try – maybe next time.

Numeracy

We are interested in recognising number in print both indoor and outdoor and are providing a variety of play experiences to encourage this interest. Number lines, find the number, number sequencing and games with a number focus. Hide and seek is proving popular this week – have you tried to hide to the count of 1 – that was a challenge!
