This half term we have been reading books all about bears and we have finished our topic by having a teddy bears picnic.
Our teddies joined us at Nursery.
Introducing our teddies to Nursery life
Getting ready for our games
We had some yummy food at carpet time with our teddies, then we played some fun games in the hall.
We have had some new equipment delivered and we love it!
We have some new outdoor construction toys, where we can build different shapes, paths and vehicles. These help develop teamwork, communication skills and problem solving.
We have a new balance bike which we love. This helps us to improve our balance, coordination and confidence.
We have some new small construction inside, where we can make different figures and models and they connect using magnets. This equipment helps to develop our problem solving, social skills, fine motor skills and imagination.
Nursery joined in to celebrate pancake day.
We mixed the batter and the teachers had to cook the pancakes for us. They even managed to toss the pancakes high in the air! We stood from the kitchen door, watching and smelling the pancakes.
Waiting for the pancakes to cook
Once they had cooled, they were ready to eat.
We chose different toppings to put on our pancakes. They were delicious and some of us even went back for seconds and thirds!
This week, our story of the week is ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?’ by Eric Carle. We have been looking at different resources linked to colour and light as the animals on the story are all beautiful, bright colours.
We have been mixing colours using the colour paddles, playing with kaleidoscopes, sorting colours and using funny shaped glasses to alter the way we see things.
We have had a great first week back at Nursery and have enjoyed welcoming our new families and friends.
Here are a few photos of what we have been doing…
Taking turns and waiting for the bikes!
