Mrs Wilding's Weekly Words Lent 4

Happy Snow Day! 

The nursery rooms have been learning about winter from winter related stories. They've been mixing red and green paint to create trees and animals and have used printing techniques to make animal footprints for display. I am sure that you will enjoy the lovely display boards which are created with your children’s work. They have been on treasure hunts around the school, finding twigs to make trees, have explored the frozen pond area and generally had a lovely experience with the topic.

Transition children have been having an amazing time in their winter wonderland which Miss Green had set up for them and have been exploring fake snow in the classroom as well as the frosts outside. They have been learning about how snow is created and the weather required for it and have enjoyed a range of snow related messy play activities such as using soap flakes to make their own snow. Using PVA glue and shaving foam, they made puffy paint which they then used to make snowmen.

During the week commencing 4 February the nursery children will be learning about Chinese New Year, the colour red, the number 4 and the letter e. Any small toys incorporating these would be ideal as their “Show and Tell” item this week. Transition children will be learning about Chinese New Year, ice and the letter h.

The Cold Cookery activity on Wednesday afternoon will be making pasta salads and the following ingredients will be used: pasta, cucumber, tomatoes, sweetcorn and tuna. As always we will have a list of ingredients if you wish to check for allergens.
