We had a go at drawing the snails. We have done some different art activities including marble rolling and printing to decorate snail shells.
On Tuesday we joined with the reception class to take part in an Early Years Road Safety workshop.We started with a talk reminding us of the importance of "stop, look and listen " when we cross a road. We all had a turn at crossing the road remembering to stop, look and listen and also to hold an adult's hand.
My thanks to the parents who were able to join us for the workshop and helped the children to cross the road.
Later we went outside and practised crossing the road but this time we took it in turns to be the lolllipop person or the pedestrian. We particularly enjoyed dressing up and using the special stick.
Back in nursery we had some pictures to colour and some of us made our own stop signs.
In phonics we learned the rhyme to form the letter e :"slice off the top and scoop out the egg" and thought of lots of words that started with an e including many children in nursery who have a name that starts with the sound e.
In literacy we looked at lots of different books on minibeasts, space, transport and food. We found pictures we liked and thought about what information the picture gave us. We found out something interesting from each book.
Next half term our theme for the first week will be The Queen's Birthday. On Friday nursery are invited to wear something red, white or blue as we celebrate the Queen's birthday.
A big thank you to Mr Dolan, a reception parent who has repaired our sandpit. It is looking very smart and we are looking forward to putting in some new sand.
Here are a few of the other things we have done this week.
After half term we will start practising for Sports day. Please can all children wear trainers to school on a Wednesday which is our PE day.I hope you all have a lovely half term.
