This week we were very interested in what is inside our bodies:
Primary 4 let us borrow their model of the body. We learned about our organs and how they help us:
Oliver – Our heart keeps us alive.
Luke – This is a lung, it helps you to breathe.
We talked about people who help us to keep healthy and Ailsa from the morning session suggested that we have a dentist role play area. The children did a great job checking each others teeth and all made sure that they brushed their teeth carefully after snack!
We are also still very interesting in our faces and learned some French words. Some of us also decided to make faces with our snacks.
We learned more about 2D shapes. We talked about the different shapes that we could find in Nursery and about the properties of these shapes.
Some of us chose to paint around the shapes and made our own pictures using these shapes.
In our group time we learned about sorting and matching. We used the compare bears to sort by colour and size.
We then tried sorting some tiny sequence into piles of our choice.
The afternoon children have also been preparing for our Sports Day with Mrs Smith. This week we were practising for the races.
We did a super job and the Nursery staff are looking forward to practising this with the morning children next week.
Finally we had a very interesting parcel delivered to the Nursery – inside it was some caterpillars
We are going to look after them and watch to see how they change. We are hoping that if we take good care of them that we can see them turn into butterflies!
