Week beginning 13th January
This week we have continued our learning on transport. We have been making vehicles out of play dough and used construction to make wheels and axels so our vehicles can move. We have used sorting mats to explore where planes, boats, trains trucks and other vehicles travel and we have played with diggers and construction vehicles in the sand tray. Outdoors we have used natural materials to create our own drive-through and we have been exploring mark making with large chalks and paint brushes. In our mathematical learning we have been learning about more and less and we have been listening carefully to identify sounds in our environment. At home you could listen carefully to see what sounds you can hear. Have a lovely weekend.
Week beginning 6th January
Happy New Year! It was lovely to see everyone back at school this week with lovely Christmas tales. the children have settled back into their routines and have had a very busy week. They have explored our new Airport Role Play, booking holidays and setting off on plane journeys. Many children have explored making rockets and many other things at our recycling centre. Our new message centre has also created lots of interest and children have been very keen to write and hide secret messages. Watch out for messages coming home hidden in some unusual places. We have been practising our fine motor control by creating pictures on puzzle art boards. We are enjoying our airport, buying tickets and going on journeys, so we would like to learn about other types of transport. At home maybe you could go on a bus or train journey. You could decide where you would like to go and buy a ticket with an adult. We would love to see the tickets you bought and photographs of where you have been and we can display them in Nursery.
