Robin Class have been busy learning all about the festival of light, Diwali.
They listened to stories and learnt all about different traditions that they have for this very important holiday in India.
It is a Hindu ‘festival of lights’ which celebrates the New Year.
The word Diwali means ‘row of lighted lamps’.
Robin Class created some Diva lamps using clay.
We will wait...
During our October half term, the children were busy exploring Autumn with their families.
They observed seasonal changes and talked about what they were recognising now Autumn is here!
The children collected signs of Autumn in their bags and shared what they had found with their friends.
Nursery made vegetable soup today.
We peeled, cut and stirred the soup. Miss Smith boiled it in the pan, then we took turns to blend it.
We buttered some bread to dip into the soup then we sat down to eat.
We all agreed it was very yummy!!
Nursery have been exploring Autumn vegetables. We looked at them, how they felt and smelt.
Then we cut into them to see what was inside. We enjoyed using knives and spoons to pull them apart.
Tomorrow we are going to make some vegetable soup!
This term the children in the nursery have been going into the forest for the first time. They met some of Mrs Mundy's friends who live in the forest Olly the Owl, Harry the Hedgehog, Lily the Ladybird and Sammy the Squirrel. We talked about what happens to all the leaves in the forest in the Autumn and how...
Robin Class have been busy tasting porridge just like Goldilocks!
They talked about the ingredients that they used and which topping they would like put on top.
They chose from toppings: honey, jam, sugar and raisins.
Every child tried some porridge today and it was JUST RIGHT!
Today in Forest School we have been thinking about our topic this term which is 'All about me'. We made faces from clay and attached them to the trees and decorated them with natural things like stones, twigs, berries and leaves. We talked about conkers and how they come from a horse chestnut tree.
Today we designed our own Gansta Granny vehicle and then created it using plasticine. We then used a stop motion app to create our own film.
