Nursery Latest News – Summer 2 Week 4

This week we have been learning about minibeasts, particularly frogs. Throughout the week we have learnt what a frog is, what they look like, what they like eating, where they live and some interesting facts. After using the internet and non-fiction books to find our information, we gathered the information into a fact sheet using drawings to help us recall the different facts.

On Wednesday we visited our school pond to see the habitat of a frog. We scooped up some water into a tray and found some tadpoles that were living in the pond. Remembering the life cycle, we knew that they would soon turn into froglets, first growing their back legs and then their front legs.

In maths we have been focusing on positions of an object, using language such as in between, in front, behind, on and under. In phonics we have been revisiting what rhyming is and suggesting some of our own rhymes. In our explore learning time we have been drawing our self-portrait, using mirrors to look at our features and colours.

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.
