Forest School Friend 

We had a visitor to our Forest School today, a little mouse. We watched him run around and tried to think about what he might eat. Ali guessed “stick” and Jacob said “a flower”. We tried lots of different things although what he liked the most was cheese and a tiny piece of bread! 

Creative Pumpkins

We used our pumpkin as inspiration to paint some lovely orange masterpieces today. One little girl (2016.17.61) painted a circle for her pumpkin and told her key person “it’s circle”. We even began to paint on to our pumpkin! 

Our orange play dough was perfect for modelling pumpkins. After lots of trying we decided the best way to make a play dough pumpkin is to roll the play dough around and around. We made lots of pumpkins of all different sizes. 

The Three Bears Porridge 

While reading the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears we have become very interested in their porridge. One little boy told me “I didn’t have porridge before” and he asked me “why she eat it?”. Another boy told me “I don’t like it. My mum has it”.  We thought it would be a good idea if we tasted some porridge just like Goldilocks. 
This morning we made a shopping list and set off to Tesco to buy some porridge. When we got back to school we ate some porridge for our snack. Some of us liked it and some of us didn’t. One little girl said “it’s all gone like baby Bears bowl”.

What could it be? 

Today we had a strange object hiding under the material. We tried to guess what it was, we thought it might be a football. When it was revealed we saw it was a pumpkin. The pumpkin was very interesting, we touched it, smelt it and we decided it was orange. When one little boy picked it up he told everyone “it’s heavy!”. I wonder what we will do next with our pumpkin? 

Three Little Pigs

We have been reading the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ this week in Nursery. We loved looking at the pictures in the book and we were very interested in the Big Bad Wolf! After reading the story we decided to build a house for the pigs, we even tried to blow it down like the wolf!

Our First Trip to Forest School

We had our first trip to Forest School with Mrs Hopkins in today. There were so many things to see. We spotted a spiders web that had been made sparkly from the foggy weather. Mrs Hopkins showed us a clever trick to catch the web. Using black paper we carefully caught the web. Next we sprinkled some sugar over top to make the web glittery. We had lots of fun exploring and we even found a snail! Forest School is very exciting, we can’t wait to come back.

When Life Gives You Rain, Make Bubbles

We love rainy days in Pre-Nursery. It gave us a great opportunity to use our physical skills with mops, brushes and sweeps. We loved squirting the water and making bubbles.
