We have loved making birthday cakes in Pre-Nursery and this role play helps us to use our experiences and find out more about our culture and customs, as well as helping us to begin to share and play with our friends.
This little girl enjoys using her counting skills in every activity she does. Independently she correctly touch counts using the numicon pieces and towards the end of her activity she was beginning to match the quantity with the correct numeral.
Some of our children in Pre-Nursery are very interested in numbers at the moment. We are enjoying counting, looking at numerals and singing number songs. We decided to go on a number hunt to see what numbers we could find out in the environment.
There are lots of numbers and everywhere, our favourite were the street signs? I wonder what numbers you would find if you went on a number hunt?
What a fantastic afternoon at the Museum of Liverpool. We took a bus journey in to the city centre and walked to the museum. We got to explore the ‘Little Liverpool’ area which had lots of fun and interesting things to explore like keys and locks and sailing boats in the water way. Later we got to explore an old train and a model of the tracks, roads and tunnels in Liverpool. It was a very tiring day!
We have made dinosaur footprints! We had lots of fun and we’re interested in the differences between dinosaurs, recognising that some had spikes and some had long necks.
We also loved exploring the texture of the paint and even made some hand prints ourselves!
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.
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”.
