Welcome to Nursery
The staff in Fox Hill Nursery are Mrs Morgan, Mrs Linska, Mrs Prior and Mrs Perks.
Such exciting news on our return from the half term break. All our tadpoles have completed the transformation into little frogs. They now have four legs and most have no longer got a tail.
They are growing bigger quickly. They are spotty and bumpy. No sign of any legs yet!
We drew pictures of them.
A fantastic time was had by all during our farms topic, with mask making, pretending to be animals and farmers caring for the animals in our role play farm built by the children.
The Little Red Hen
We all agreed that the Little Red Hen in the story was right to eat all He bread by herself, not sharing, because all the other animals were lazy and did not help with the work. Everybody helped when we made our own bread so could enjoy their own bread roll.
Our tadpoles have grown so much in just a week! We are hoping they will start changing into frogs very soon.
Jack and the Beanstalk
We loved learning this story. We decided Jack was a very naughty boy because he didn’t listen to his mum and he stole from the giant!
Our own beanstalks have grown well and we are hoping to see giants at the top them sometime soon,
National Science Week
Alongside the rest of the school, Nursery are enjoying carrying out lots of science experiments this week.
As you can see from our results table, we found out that the best biscuits to dunk in your tea or coffee are Rich Tea! (and be careful with your digestives)
World Book Day
Our ‘Book of the day’ was This is the Bear and the Picnic lunch by Sarah Hayes.
We also enjoyed experiencing the different books and props brought in by the children.
After learning about Goldilocks and the Three bears during the whole week, we finished with our own indoor picnic with our teddy bears on Friday.
Nursery loved their Space topic. We made aliens and rockets and used our imagination to think about what it would be like in space, visiting planets or on the moon.
Halloween was celebrated by learning about and making spiders to put on our webs.
We used our strong fingers to try to make holes for threading the pipe cleaner legs then counted to make sure they had the required eight legs.
“That was hard,” said William.
Where The Wild Things Are!
by Maurice Sendak
We have enjoyed learning about this story in Nursery this term. We can recite a section of it with the help of pictures and actions.
Inspired by by the transformation of Max’s bedroom to a forest, we have made our own trees and created our own forests.
