In Nursery, we have started to focus on our new topic ‘Long Ago.’
The children have been exploring photos of events that have happened in the past. Some of the photographs the children have explored are in black and white. We have spoken about how photos have changed over time. We have been drawing pictures of our family using black charcoal and black wax crayons – the children have described their pictures brilliantly.
Last week, we all went outside to see how the weather had changed. After being outside for a few minutes the snow started to fall from the sky. The children put out their hands and caught lots of snowflakes. They felt the snowflakes fall on their face with joy.
Some children commented:
“It’s freezing now,”
“Where does the snow come from?”
In maths, we have been looking at patterns in the environment from spots to stripes. Some children have been very creative with their mark making skills and have made their own patterns. Well done everyone – keep looking for different patterns at home! In literacy, we have started to focus on a new story called ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar.’ The children have been able to join in with telling the story and have enjoyed counting the fruit the caterpillar has eaten. We have been drawing caterpillars and comparing their size too. Some caterpillars were long and thin, and others were long and fat.
A quick reminder: The weather is getting colder please wrap up warm! We advise children to bring a hat, a scarf and gloves every day.
Keep working hard everyone!
