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…..
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………
