We have really enjoyed our Stick Man activities. We used pictures to retell the story, we used paint, paper, scissors and glue to create pictures, we made marks by dipping the sticks into paint and we used sticks in our construction and model making.
We have been having fun with our Stick Man activities.
Week beginning January 29th :- We will be starting a mini topic based on the lovely story 'Stick Man'. Perhaps you have this story at home and could share this with your child? We would love to see any pictures and writing about Stick Man that your children do at home and would be grateful for any sticks and twigs that could be collected for us to use in our learning. Thank you!
It feels cold and slippery!
Wow! What a wonderful ice building.
"I can see the little bubbles"!
We have had a really good start to the new term and have enjoyed listening to the children talk about their Christmas experiences.
We have started our new topic and already have learned a lot about penguins. Please ask your child to tell you something they have learned about penguins. We have observed ice and snow, built icebergs and had a lovely warm drink of hot-chocolate (with marshmallows)!
It was our Christmas party on Wednesday. We played lots of games (pass the parcel, musical bumps, musical statues and 'stations'). We enjoyed eating our delicious party food.
Today Santa came to see us in Nursery! He told us that his favourite treat is a mince pie and that his reindeer like carrots best. He brought us a huge sack of presents and we sang him our song about Rudolf. He said goodbye and left for the North Pole on his sleigh. We could hear the bells jingle as he flew away!
Take at look at what we have been doing in Nursery recently.
More Christmas activities!
Christmas is nearly here! We have been very busy learning lots of new songs for our performance next week and are looking forward to seeing you all there. Thank you for your support in helping your children learn the words to the songs. Your children have listened to and talked about the Christmas story with great interest and have been dressing up and recreating the nativity story in the role play area and with the small Nativity characters. Class 2 were able to help decorate the school tree in the hall. There has been a lot of glitter around as we prepare our Christmas cards and decorations!
Here are some of the Christmas activities we have been doing so far:-
