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?
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!
Today we had the amazing experience of picking our own pumpkins. We travelled to the pumpkin farm on the mini bus and made sure to be wearing our wellies. When we arrived what did we find but lots of muddy puddles! We collected our pumpkins in wheelbarrows and got to walk through the fields. The best part was definitely jumping in the mud.
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.
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?
