The children have settled amazingly well into their new class. They are starting to build friendships with their peers and they are actively participating within the daily routines.
The children have developed a love for exploring their learning environment, below are some great examples of how their learning is coming alive in Nursery.
F1 explored how they have grown into the children they are today.
We explored how everyone begins life as a baby and that they continue to grow into children, and then adults.
The children brought in their very own baby pictures and we discussed how they have changed.
"Babies are small".
"I had milk when I was at home and then I started nursery".
"I slept in my bed and had my dummy".
"I grow into a big girl".
The children used their baby pictures to help them create 'playdough babies' of themselves and played with the dolls in Child Initiated Learning, they even gave the babies a bath!
"I made a dummy for when I was little".
"That's mummy when she was a baby".
As part of Black History Month, the children were given the opportunity to listen to Caribbean Steel Band music and then have their own turn using the Steel Band drums.
The children thoroughly enjoyed this experience, and excitedly created their own Steel Band music when they were back in the classroom!
This term we have begun to explore our wooded area on the school field.
We have been participating within a range of Forest School activities every Friday morning.
The children are gaining independence by changing into their wellies, dressing themselves in their coats and exploring their outside environment.
Below are some great pictures that show some of our activities so far.
