Nursery Latest News – Autumn 1 Week 5

This week we have been very busy looking at lots of different farm animals. We started off the week looking into our magic bag to see what animals might live on a farm. We used our binoculars to look at different recognisable features of farm animals, and then we listened to Miss Beaumont describe features of the animals to see if we could guess what the animal was. In Maths we continued with sorting activities, seeing what objects we could sort by colour.

Outside we explored with the cars and made our own little town, with traffic signs included. At the end of the week Mrs Rathod made us our very own farmyard in our garden. We could let the animals sleep in their houses, graze on some grass, the pigs could get muddy and even the ducks went down their very own slide.

This week the children have all enjoyed their first woodwork sessions. First they explored the safety aspects of woodwork including the importance of safety goggles and safe use of tools. They used a variety of different size and thickness of balsa wood, different sized nails and a variety of mixed media such as bottle tops, corks and beads for their creations. They also learned how to use a Japanese saw safely with an adult. The children had lots of fun exploring and we were very impressed with their creations.

This week in maths, we learnt about patterns. We had to identify patterns but also create patterns ourselves. We noticed that a pattern could be made in lots of different ways. For example, you could make a one by alternating two types of shape or by changing the colour of just one shape.

We created an atmosphere of the story being told about the Great Fire of London by starting background noises, sound effects and musical instruments that sounded like what had happened.
