Under the Sea

The children have had a great first week back! We have been exploring shells and fossils in the classroom, talking about the trips that we have been on to the beach, making sea masks, making playdoh animals, practicing our letter formation and exploring different sea animals.

We love to read!

Autumn 2 update:

We have had a very busy half term down in nursery. We have enjoyed learning about the different jobs that people have and have been thinking about what we would like to be when we grow up. We were lucky enough to have a nurse and a lifeguard come into the nursery to talk about their jobs and what they entail. The children have enjoyed role playing being at the police station, dentist, hairdressers and doctor's with great interest and enthusiasm. We have discussed the importance of looking after our bodies, brushing our teeth, exercising and eating a balanced diet. In mathematics the children have been learning to count to 5 and looking at one more and one less than the numbers up to 5. The children have also been enjoying listening to rhyming stories and picking out words that rhyme. We are looking forward to starting our new topic after Christmas 'Under the Sea'.

 I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a very happy New Year!
