Last week, one of the children made a “volcano” from the bricks and so to carry on the theme we made a plaster volcano in nursery today. After it was painted, it was filled with some secret ingredients so that it erupted with pretend lava. The children were fascinated and used lots of language to describe what they saw.
Today the children had a wonderful time experimenting with wood, bricks, sand, writing materials, crates etc as they had to use their imagination to invent play situations. There were no bikes, trikes or climbing frames as a trial run today and it just goes to show that the children create their own fun and learning opportunities.
Great job everyone.
A new year is upon us and it was lovely to see all the children back in nursery yesterday. They were all excited to see the ‘young engineer’ construction set and these boys had a great time creating models with hammers, screws and bolts. Can’t wait to see what they build next!
There have been sightings of some little elves around the nursery this week….
In room 2 this week, the children have been making fantastic decorations to decorate the Christmas tree.
A big well done to everyone!
As part of our Christmas theme in nursery, we have been making Gingerbread men and had lots of fun decorating them with eyes and buttons. Great job everyone!
Our Christmas trees have arrived and the children in both rooms were busy today adding lights, tinsel and baubles. They did a great job and the trees look fantastic!
