Autumn colours has been a theme in nursery this week and so off we all went to Pilrig Park today to see what colour we could find. We worked with a partner to find as many items as we could of different colours and displayed them on our colour sheets.
The children enjoyed listening to the ukulele today and were very interested in this new instrument which they thought was a mini guitar!
Adam, who has been on placement with us this week, had learned some of our favourite songs and the children sang along to “wheels on the bus” and ” if you’re happy and you know it”.
Following on from the last post, the children have been making faces today from a variety of art materials and talking about things that make them feel different emotions. We have displayed them on an Emotions Tree.
This week in nursery, the children are learning about different facial expressions and which emotions they show. We have been talking about a variety of scenarios and how each would make us feel. See if you can spot some of these emotions in the slideshow……
It rained for most of the day today but we didn’t care because we had our nursery umbrellas!
The children all joined in with a new game in the playground today. It was a game to encourage colour recognition and matching as well as waiting to take turns. Everyone got quite competitive when they were organised into 2 teams and asked to match the coloured tubes to the corresponding coloured card. All did well to wait their turn and help their team to finish the game.
A great way to learn our colours and keep fit!
After the popularity of this event last session, we have decided to make our parent and child cycle a regular activity. We will aim to go to Pilrig Park on the last Thursday of each month ( weather permitting ).
Thanks to everyone who came along today, the children had a great time.
