Halloween Fun

Welcome back to Term 2!  We’ve had lots of Halloween fun this week……

….disco dancing, games, weaving webs, pumpkin potions, dressing up and a visit from a T-Rex!  The bairns had fun chasing the T-Rex around outside and then got busy making soup and all kinds of potions for his lunch after his sleep.

We had a spooky snack, made pumpkin playdoh, and a pumpkin treasure hunt outside…….Eeeeeeeek there’s a T-Rex at the window!!!!…..

Mr T-Rex really enjoyed his soup that the bairns made for him……

Mmmmmmm…yummy..

Peekaboo!

POTIONS!….mixing colours, stirring, pouring, filling, testing, droppers, sprinkling……

Weaving webs…

Pumpkin playdoh…

Week 8 & 9

We rounded off our Super Senses learning with some taste and touch activities and an end of term Fire Pit.  It was particularly special as it was the last day at Nursery for one of our bairns.

What better way to experience our senses than the smell of an open fire, marshmallows toasting and fresh air, the sound of the birds in the trees and bairns’ laughter, the sight of blue skies and such happy faces from bairns and staff, the most delicious taste of smores and beans on toast and staying cosy from the heat of the fire!

The taste test – what can you taste when you hold your nose – apple or tottie?……….

 

Week 8!

Last week we were looking at another super sense… SMELL!

We added lovely scents in our kitchen area on Monday and our chefs cooked and baked up some delicious dishes!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have done games and experiments to test our sense of smell.  We had to close our eyes and use our nose to smell what Mrs Meadows was holding infront of us.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We watched a video about what our noses are for and then did an experiment to show how far our germs can spread if we don’t catch our sneezes with a tissue.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have been very busy outside this week despite some poor weather.  There has been trips to the forest to get ingredients for the mud kitchen, hide and seek and lots of water play to name a few.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When it was nice and dry at the start of the week we carried on painting the sand/ mud pit, its looking lovely and bright!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have been to the shore to watch the waves crashing! We spoke about the sea and rockpools, what we could see and smell, listened to the waves and did some road safety.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have also  done lots of building! We made a hot tub out of the bricks and tarpaulin and it needed lots of filling up! Then we made a house to shelter under while it rained using good team work and strength to move the heavy tyres.  It was lots of fun.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inside we have been loving having our climbing frame back! We have been monkeys, kings and queens and made a den. We also had our obstacle course out to practice our balancing which was very poplular. Finally we have been continuing to work on our lovely family trees and they are all looking super!

 

 

Help needed please!

Help! Our dolls are getting really chilly now that Summer is over and are looking for some clothes.  If anyone has any spare dolls clothes they no longer use, we would be really grateful of any donations to Nursery to help keep these babies warm in Winter.  Thank you.

Week 6 and 7!

WOW – how can we be on week 7 already?!  Here’s a peerie look at what we’ve been up to the last 2 weeks……

Inspired by the different genres of music we’ve been learning about, we extended our music into learning about our Super Powers – SENSES!.  We have been exploring our sense of sight and hearing and loved using these music bells to make our own music as well as copt patterns and rhythms of other music.

We made glasses and played games where we had to use only our eyes or only our ears to play the game.  “Winky” was our favourite where we all had to choose someone to wink or blink at and swap places without anyone seeing.

As always we’ve had great fun outside with a mixed bag of weather.  We’ve been painting, exploring the forest while being mindful of what we could see and hear each time.  We loved the sound of the rustling leaves in the wind and the crunching leaves under our feet.  We took leaves back to Nursery and enjoyed, leaf printing, making our family trees and a big thank you tree for Paul, who helped us care for our forest.  We even used the leaves to make our Christmas cards!

Our forest gives us great opportunities to talk about Autumn and see the leaves changing.  We looked for different animals that might live in our forest and thought about the hedgehogs who may be looking for somewhere to hibernate.  We even made our own Autumn tree in the playground.

We’ve enjoyed sunshine at the playpark and rainy days for puddle splashing.  We went fishing in the puddles for fish and sea creatures.  We made homes and aquariums for each sea creature which developed into a fun “sinking and floating” experiment.

We worked together to make a water fall and use the water to move objects down the pipes and what better way to end the day, than with a water fight!!  Lots of fun was had by all.

Lots of fun in the mud kitchen and mark making…..

 

Mark making……

We’ve been busy learning about road safety on our walks and recreating these in the playground with trips on our “bus”, road works and bikes and scooters, whilst building roads and ramps inside with different materials.

Looking forward to see what next week brings………

Week 5!

We have had a super busy week and are now half way through  term 1 already!

We started off the week by making our family trees. We molded clay for our tree trunks and stuck in twigs from our forest. We left them to dry and will draw our family members on the leaves that we have gathered from the forest to stick to our twigs!

We have been making playdoh for baking in our kitchen and been for walks to the forest and play park. On Thursday we all got our waterproofs on and made a big puddle in our playground to splash in. We then decided to go on a puddle hunt to find a bigger puddle!

We have LOVED having the rice in the tuff tray to measure, pour, weigh, make rice cakes with and so much more!

We have been dancing and exploring to different genres of music, rock and Shetland dance was a firm favourite! We discussed how different types of music makes us feel and what it makes us want to do (run, jump, sleep). We then tried to match it to each of the colour monsters depending on how it made the children feel (happy, sad, calm, angry, love, scared).

On Friday we had the magnets out in our loose parts and watched a video about magnetism and why magnets repel and attract. We discovered lots of things in nursery that were magnetic and also found out that we could move the magnetic balls on the tuff tray with a magnet underneath which was very exciting!

In the afternoon we went to the OOSC garden and forest to play hide and seek and found 2 frogs! The one in the garden was a small frog so we decided to put it back to the pond. But the one in the forest was a big one so we left it in the long grass!

See what's been happening at our nursery!
