This week we have thoroughly enjoyed the sunny warm weather. A lot of us have been eager to spend the nursery sessions playing outdoors so we have moved many of our indoor learning opportunities to the outdoors. We have enjoyed expressing ourselves with painting. Lots of concoctions have been produced in our busy mud kitchen. Building work has continued as children enjoyed making dens from the waffle blocks. We have also been reading the story of Jack and the Beanstalk where we decided to grow our own beanstalks. We used small food bags and cotton wool to place our bean in. Through this process we discussed the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and what we had to provide for our beans to grow big and strong. All children have now started to learn about emotional literacy through the Oh Lila story. Lila is a small hare who gets into a spot of bother. The story helps children identify different feelings and recognising that it is ok to ask for help. We now have a forest in our Library area where children can play with the Oh Lila puppets and story book.
