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.
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?
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!
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”.
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?
During out door play we spotted a worm and we stopped to have a look. It was very interesting watching the worm and we wondered where he might go, maybe to the shops? We noticed that ther worm was wiggling and that’s how he moved around. We watched him until he went in to the grid and down into the water.
