We have settled into Nursery so well this year and started to make lots of new friends. We have loved exploring the classroom and finding the best things to play with. We have made new friends and enjoyed sitting down together for snack time.
We have loved learning all about bears. We even have our own bear cave in the classroom! We went on a bear hunt outside after reading 'We're going on a bear hunt.' We found the cave and the bear but we were a little bit scared. We ran away and said 'We're never going on a bear hunt again!'
We have also made bear faces and talked about the different shapes you needed to make it. We learnt that a circle was round and that a square had four sides.
We have also done lots of number recognition and colour sorting in Maths.
We love technology. We have been learning all about how to programme bee bots. We made a map of a bear cave and a forest and guided the bee bot through the forest. It was so much fun!
Goldilocks and the Three Bears!
We have been so excited to read all about Goldilocks and the Three Bears this week. We read the story together and talked about what might happen to Goldilocks when the bears found her. Joey said the bears would be cross with Goldilocks. Deacon agreed with him! We had a lovely class discussion.
We then made jam sandwiches and had our own tea party! It was so fun. We followed instructions and made the jam sandwiches for our teddies. They thought the sandwiches were tasty too.
We have loved maths this half term. We have done lots of number recognition and matching the correct amount of objects to a number. We have also ordered Goldilocks' porridge bowls from small to large and talked about why they go in that order.
We have also learnt about circles when we made our circle bear and discussed lots of different 2D shapes. We could name a few of them which was brilliant. We have also done a colour sort when we went on a colour hunt. We were able to collect lots of objects of the same colour. It was lots of fun.
Our Circle Bears! Raaaaaaaaa!
Bears, Bears, Bears!
We have been very creative this half term in Acorn class. We have made lots of brilliant paintings and drawings. We have also experimented with playdough when we made a playdough bear. We used raisins as eyes and twigs as arms and legs. We made them all different shapes and sizes, it was great fun!
We also did some writing when we went on a sensory bear hunt. Our teacher made an interactive story map and we got to feel the different parts pf the story from the deep, cold river (water) to the swirling, whirling snowstorm (shaving foam!). We used describing words to say what each part felt like and then wrote these down. We held our pencil beautifully and were able to interpret some of what we had written.
We also wrote our names using our name cards and practised with help from an adult.
