Welcome to Stars Nursery!
This term our topic is Growth & Change.
We have set up a campsite in our outdoor area for the children to enjoy during the summer term.
Grass Heads – We created grass heads using tights, grass seed and compost. We are going to keep a diary to see how long their hair grows.
Wormery - Mr Heslop our creative site manager made us a wormery. Some of the children went to our Forest School site to collect soil and worms. We layered the soil with sand and added leaves for the worms to eat. The children have enjoyed looking at the wormery and counting the worms. We are going to keep a photo diary of progress. Keep checking back to see how they get on.
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.
The children in Stars Nursery have been enjoying weekly French lessons. They are learning all about France and how to say some simple French phrases. They have also had lots of fun listening and dancing to some French songs!
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.
The children in Stars Nursery have had a brilliant Halloween playing games and decorating pumpkins. They all looked spooktacular in their amazing costumes and have enjoyed dancing and eating yummy snacks at our fabulous Halloween party! Check out the pictures below to see the fun we all had.
Everyone had a great time at our Halloween Party!
The children loved getting messy making our class firework display! They used black card and paint to make splatter 'fireworks.'
