This week’s learning

Another great week in Nursery! The children are enjoying our new ‘school’ role play  area and enjoy taking on the roles of both teacher and pupil. They are listening to each other and taking turns to act out the different  roles. The children have  learnt a new poem called  ‘I have a Tiny Turtle’,  so maybe they could perform it to you. Later in the week we carried out an experiment to make a ‘cure’ for dragon pox (based on ideas from the story, Princess Mirror-Belle and the Dragon Pox by Julia Donaldson).  We also used bicarbonate of soda and white vinegar to make fizzy colours.   Many of the children chose to make headbands, using a range of resources and tools to decorate them.

As part of their transition to Reception we had a circle time to talk about it and answer any questions the children had.

A few highlights:
