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”.

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”.

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.
