The nursery children have all settled in and are creative throughout their learning. They have been exploring different ways to learn about numbers and patterns and were enthusiastic to create patterns using vegetables and fruit as part of work towards a floor book. “Bee’s have stripey patterns” and Mrs Bertram brought in her bee keeper protective suit to show the children much to their amazement.
Stepping stone targets include learning to recognise colours, numbers, shapes, letters and to practice skills such as mark making, writing and counting.
The great weather has allowed for lots of play outdoors in the playarea, garden and playground to which the children have enjoyed exploring nature and practicing their gross motor skills such as climbing, running, throwing, peddling and much more.
All children have contributed to mind maps, circle time discussions and made up their own rules for nursery. Following on from children’s interests, after the October break we will be learning about feelings, time, the properties of materials as well as activities to support children’s learning about halloween, bonfire night and christmas. Safe Strong and Free workshops for the parents then children will also begin after the October break.
