We had more visitors to Nursery with Jenna the nurse and Karin the dentist. We also had a visit form "Raise the Woof" with "Charlie" the dog and his owner. We talked about safety around dogs and Charlie showed us some of his tricks. Our soft toys were very sick and nurse Jenna showed us how to make them feel better and she read us a story about a hospital visit. Karin the dentist talked about how to brush our teeth and which foods to eat and we even got dressed up as a dentist and a patient. We always have fun outside and we have had some great play in our new builders sand house. We had fun with numbers on NSPCC Number Day and we also enjoyed dressing up and reading lots of stories on World Book Day. We have been doing lots of work on numbers, measurement and pattern making. We made pancakes on Pancake Tuesday-they were delicious and we enjoy our library time every Wednesday. We have also enjoyed playing at our new writing table and Maths area.
We have all come back to school in January ready to learn about Winter....we have done lots of ice experiments. We have been learning about 2d and 3d shapes and we made our junk models and painted them ourselves. We will be having lots of visitors to Nursery and Jo-Jingles started the first week back. We have had more campfire sessions with our brothers and sisters from school and Mr Campbell has played the guitar and taught us new songs...as usual Miss McGimpsey's hot chocolate was a hit. We have also had visits from Jane the vet and lots of parents have come into Nursery to read stories. Miss McGimpsey made us a fantastic igloo and we have enjoyed playing with Arctic animals in it.
In November we have been looking at Fairy Tales and learning about Light and Dark and shapes. We started visiting the computer suite in school and we have made Gingerbread Men, porridge and rainbow fruit salad. We dressed up in rainbow colours for Children In Need and we practiced our camp fire and did some singing with Mr Campbell. Have a look at some of the photographs and videos.
We had a visit by the Lorraine at the Ark Farm and we met lots of amazing animals.
On Friday we all headed off to Crawfordsburn in two big buses. We played on the beach, made sandcastles, collected shells and had great fun. We had our snack and thanks to the canteen Mums and Dads enjoyed lovely shortbread. We walked through the woods collecting conkers and leaves-glad we wore our wellie boots. We then headed back to the buses and back to school. It was w great day. Have a look at some of the photos!!!!!
