The last couple of weeks we have been learning about the seasons and talking about Autumn and the changes in the weather.
We have experienced this when we have been outside as part of our “Muddy Mondays” , as well as our daily outdoor play. We have been noticing over the weeks the changes in the world around us, leaves changing and a change in the temperature!
We have been doing autumn, jigsaws, reading seasonal stories and gluing, drawing and painting some lovely autumnal pictures!
We have seasons activities set up outside and inside, like our small world house. We also have been doing some autumn songs, and drama in gym and using the colour magic computer program to draw seasonal trees.
W can’t wait to share our learning with you next week at stay and play – please add your name to the whiteboard if you can make it!
In the last week before the holidays we had stay and play sessions where we welcomed parents and carers in to share our ELC learning and experiences.
A huge thank you to all who joined us, the children loved having you in to play!
This is a great opportunity for you to share your childs learning with them, speak to the ELC staff, meet other parents/carers and have a look at their folder and displays in ELC.
We do these stay and play sessions termly so keep an eye out on the board for the next days.
At the moment we are also looking for some parent/carer feedback using our “feedback tree” in the cloakroom – Please add any thoughts or suggestions onto a wooden spoon and hang it on a branch! We love hearing your feedback.
We have been learning lots about different Nursery Rhymes. In our ELC we have made a Nursery rhyme area, with books, jigsaws, song words and pictures and puppets so support our learning. We have also made some of our own song bags too.
Everyday at our gather times we have been singing different nursery rhymes and sometimes using the smart board to sing them too!
The ELC4 children at computers this week have been drawing pictures of humpty dumpty using the computer programme colour magic.
This week we have also been doing some potato printing with potatoes out our nursery garden to make humpty dumpty pictures!
If anyone has anything Nursery Rhyme related they would like to bring in, we would love to see it!
We have been really enjoying the recent hot weather with lots of play out in our ELC garden!
We have started planting potatoes, cress and sunflowers.
Peebles CAN are coming in every Wednesday to work with the ELC 4 children to plant things in our garden and in P1 garden as part of our transition. Last week the children planted different types of beans.
We have been carrying on learning about different types of recycling and have set up a “recycling area” and display in ELC where the children have to sort out the different types of recycling they have into different categories – we have also been reading stories about recycling too!
