One of our little boys had the fantastic idea of digging for treasure in our sand tray. We added telescopes and magnifying glasses to make us in to real pirates and help with our search.

After we had collected some treasure we laid it out to inspect it with the magnifying glass. We even did some counting.

Moo music visited nursery

We had lots of fun singing and dancing with Laura when Moo music came to school

We made music while we sang together

And then we looked for food for our special visitor

But he didn’t like bugs so we gave him some sandwiches instead

after that we made him milkshake


And then we said goodbye to our new friend and Laura from Moo music

“I’m writing, I’m wiping”

We love being outside on chilly days, today we got wrapped up and used the paint brushes to paint with water outdoors. We enjoyed finding different surfaces to paint on and using different methods like dabbing and splatting.

“I’m writing, I’m writing” (2016.17.66) one boy tells me. He then goes on to say “snake” while he’s mark making and encourages me to join in saying “Manda do snake”. Then when he’s finished he paints over his marks and tells me “I’m wiping. Wiping it”.

Museum of Liverpool

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!

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. 

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!

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.
