We have been exploring number in a range of different ways this week! We enjoyed counting and matching with numbers to 10 using the ‘Go Fishing’ game and with the number spinners. We demonstrated that we can count objects which cannot be moved when we explored the Numicon shapes and we compared which sets had more and fewer holes to count. We have been recognising numerals using the magnetic numbers and trying to form our own numbers too!
Nursery have had a fantastic WOW day linked with our topic We're All Going on a Summer Holiday. We have enjoyed lots of different activities both in and outside the classroom. We came in in our summer clothes and shared photographs of us from our holidays at the beach. We then paddled in water, built sandcastles and even had an ice cream with toppings!
On Monday, a present appeared in our classrooms. We thought it might be a birthday present as the writing on the wrapping paper said ‘Happy Birthday’. We wondered what was inside it. We drew some pictures of what we thought it could be. On Wednesday, we were very excited to open the present. We were a bit surprised to find out that it was a bucket. We passed the bucket around and noticed that it was shiny and yellow and had a handle shaped like a rainbow. It was so exciting to see the front cover of our new Power of Reading book ‘Billy’s Bucket’. We thought Billy might want to fill his bucket with water, or use it to make giant sandcastles. Some of us even turned the bucket upside down to use as a drum. We can’t wait to read the story.
Nursery had a lovely time colour mixing this week. We started with coloured shaving foam, and used the pipettes to drop different colours into the foam. We mixed it all up together to see what new colours we could make.
Nursery were so excited this week to be able to free flow as a Year Group Bubble. We are finally making use again of the lovely hole in the wall that was created in the Summer holidays, so that we can move between the classrooms. We have re-introduced playdough and junk modelling, where the children have been working creatively and imaginatively. We are enjoying our new Topic of Our Community and its People through our Police Station, Post Office and using the iPads to look at maps of the local area.
We’ve had a busy week in Whittle Class this week. We are enjoying our Power of Reading book called ‘Astro Girl’ and have been sharing our knowledge and interests about Space; lots of children used numbers in their play when they made the rocket launch “5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1 blast off!” We are learning to count how many and match to the number, we love using Numicon! We were so excited by the thunder storm this week. We learned the song ‘I Hear Thunder’ and watched the rain fall hard and fast. The Nursery outside area began to flood and we excitedly watched the puddle get wider and deeper! When the rain subsided we put on our wellies and went outside. First we poured food colouring into the puddles and watched the colours mix. Then we poured oil into the puddles and watched it make little rainbows. After that, we poured bubble bath in and jumped to create a bubbly puddle!
This week in Nursery we have been making ladybirds based on our Power of Reading story 'What the Ladybird Heard'. We cleaned the stones at the start of the week and painted them red, then picked a number or rolled the dice to find out how many spots we needed to put onto the ladybird's wings!
