Another busy pirating week in the Nursery!
We made pirate ships using the junk and construction materials. (If anyone has any junk materials we would be very grateful as we are running very low!)
We also used the blocks to make our own pirate ships and desert islands. We asked for some pirate costumes so that we could be real pirates!
X marks the spot!
Using the outdoor play materials – Walking the plank.
We also found the treasure that we painted last week. We took it outside and dug holes to bury the treasure. We then used natural materials to make x’s to show where the treasure is.
This helped other people find it so that they could dig it up.
Some of us very interested in what pirates looked like.
We used the library books to find information and put our ideas in our Big Book of Learning.
Other pirate learning this week:
Making treasure maps.
We learned that pirates often have a parrot friend. We decided to make our own parrots.
A few weeks ago we were set a homelink challenge to find numbers in our environment. The children who completed the task shared their learning with the rest of the group.
We were all very impressed by all the hard work and learning and have displayed all the fantastic work on the Wow Wall in the cloakroom. Thank you to all the children and their families that took part!
Finally both sessions had noticed lots of changes taking place in the nursery garden so we went for a Spring Hunt in the school grounds.
We saw lots of Spring things: daffodils, crocuses, bugs, birds, buds, and we also got to investigate our new willow dome! We had to work together with our partner to mark the things that we found on our list.
