Mystery Visitors in Nursery!
We have been investigating some very strange things in Nursery this week! A Door magically appeared in our curiosity cube. The next day white footprints appeared all over the classroom - we thought maybe a snowman was loose in our classroom. The next day a tiny bell appeared and soon after in disappeared! On Thursday a letter arrived from Basil our Kindness Elf asking us to help him find his bell. We drew pictures and talked to our grown ups to see if they had seen it. On Friday we found it and to say thank you Basil gave us a new book!
Special Delivery from Spot the Dog!
We came to Nursery on Monday and were surprised by a special parcel. We talked about who could have sent it to us. We carefully opened the package and found items to do with celebrating birthdays. The next day we received a book from Spot the Dog, it was about his birthday and he wanted help from us inviting his friends to his party. We wrote lists of people he could invite, made decorations for the party and baked cakes!
We have enjoyed learning about the festival of Diwali. We have created our own diva lamps and enjoyed making our own firework pictures using different medias.
We have been enjoying noticing and talking about the the changes we can see happening outside. We went on a Autumn hunt with our families and brought in lots of Autumnal objects which we then used our magnifying glasses and senses of touch and smell to look at, and create Autumn pictures. We have read stories and sang new songs about harvest and the changes in the leaves. We brought in food items from home to make into parcels for our elderly neighbours sharing these with the rest of the school in a special Harvest assembly.
