Busy Bees

Wow, we can’t believe we’re half way through this Term already! Here’s a snap shot of some of the fun we’ve had with learning so far this Term…….

…….Letters, sounds, Bookbug, baking and messy play…

…..sand pit and mark making…..Drewie and Callum wrote a Wishlist of Bruder toys and posted it.  Much to their excitement a reply came in the post with some goodies!

…..Outdoor play and hall time.  Bringing our learning outside.  Building galley’s, viking torches, puddle splashing and recycling…..

…..Celebrating Chinese New Year, and Robert Burns.  We made tartan, thistles and had our own Chinese Great Race!…..

….Roleplay, snack shopping and sharing Learning Journals kept us busy and of course, DA OORICKS!  Indie shared her learning from a new Nursery with us, all about the Ooricks.  We read the story and Indie told us how to make an Oorick.  Everyone loved it, made Ooricks then went to the forest to look for Ooricks.  We found lots of clues that they had been there; hats, beds, homes, look-outs, their own garden and much much more!

 

STAY AND PLAY – IT’S PANCAKE DAY!

We just had to have pancakes on Pancake Day and who better to share them with than our Mums,  Dads friends and siblings!

We couldn’t have done it without our chief pancake maker – John the Janny and his secret pancake recipe!

What a feast we had, choosing toppings, spreading, chopping, licking.

Let’s get these pancakes started……

We all had a go in messy play…cracking, mixing, whisking, pouring, measuring, weighing – what a fun way to learn.

Messy play is so much fun! Especially when it’s with your friends.
Pouring, mixing, weighing, cracking, whisking…..so much fun.

Eeeeek….our pancake mixture feels so funny. “It’s cold”, “It’s lumpy”, “It’s cool”, “It’s gooey”.

Cracking eggs.

Decisions decisions….which toppings should we have?….

Mmmmmmmm

YUMMY!

Nursery’s chief pancake maker! John the Janny is so much more than a Janny!

And of course, pancake wouldn’t be complete without a friendly pancake flipping competition.  Drewie found using  whole body motor skills was the way to go….

Flipping pancakes needs concentration.

Others had amazing hand-eye co-ordination!

Whatever method they used – it was a lot of fun.
