Foundation Stage One - Nursery

Summer Term 2017-  Amazing Animals

 

We started the term investigating minibeasts. We looked at real minibeasts, watched tadpoles and learnt about the life cycle of a frog. We had live caterplllars and studied them over the weeks, spinning their cocoons and releasing them as butterflies. We enjoyed the Very Hungry Caterpillar story and made our own fruit salad.

We went on a minibeast hunt in the wildlife garden and ticked off any we found, inclyding photos of them.

We finished our minibeast topic with an Ugly bug Ball. The children dressed up, we sang songs and played games and had amazing bug food.

This last half term we moved onto zoo animals. We learnt lots of interesting facts, played in a jungle area and finished the topic off  with a wonderful trip to Twycross Zoo.

We had a wonderful Nursery Sports and Teddy Bear's Picnic. A lovely sunny day too.

Thank you everyone for coming along.

Autumn Term 2015-

Me and My marvellous World. This term we focus on looking at ourselves, making new friends and all the wonderful festivals and celebrations such as Goose Fair, Autumn & Harvest, Bonfire Night, Diwali and of course the magic of Christmas.

We combined Children in Need with our Shiny day and raised lots of money as well as having extra fun!

We enjoyed our Diwali celebrations.

We learnt about the story of Rama and Sita and how the 10 headed monster captured Sita.

We danced to Indian music and played in the Indian kitchen. We made divas in the playdough, tasted some Indian food and painted some lovely illustrations from the story. What a fun and busy week we had.
