Welcome to Stars Nursery!
This term our topic is Ourselves and Celebrations.
We have lots of exciting things planned and will be updating our class page regularly. Be sure to check our website and keep an eye on what we are up to!
We have started Phonics this week and have begun to learn what it means to be a good listener!
We put our listening ears on and the children really enjoyed going on a listening walk around school to identify the many different sounds that they could hear.
Following on from our listening walk last week, the children in Stars nursery have been exploring what different sounds they can make by drumming different objects outdoors. They loved using beaters on lots of different surfaces to test the sound it made. Some sounds were high pitched, some were loud and some sounds were quite quiet and low pitched. It was great fun!
We have been making our own self portraits in Stars Nursery this week. The children have been looking closely at their eye colour and their hair colour using a mirror. They have also been practicing forming the letters in their names.
Our Music Morning!
On Wednesday we were very lucky to have some fantastic musicians come into school and perform for the children. This was the first time that they had all sat in the hall together. They sat beautifully and really enjoyed listening to the story of Mr Big and singing and dancing along to the music.
This week, some of our children had their first Forest School session. They all had a great time meeting Papa Troll and making bracelets from 'Fairy Breath!'
They also had a great time making cakes and soup in the mud kitchen and having a good explore of the area. Overall, it was a great morning enjoyed by all.
