It has been a very exciting week for Beech class, as we were lucky enough to have two wonderful visitors come in to see us. On Monday, as we were learning about doctors and nurses, we had a visit from a real life nurse! We got to hear all about what it’s like to be a patient in hospital and we even got to look at some of the special equipment that a nurse or doctor might use when they are helping to make patients better.
On Wednesday we had a visit from the Watford schools trust. We got to learn all about the Nativity story through music and rhyme. It was great hearing the story told in such an exciting and different way. We even got to sing some classic Chirstmas carols which really got us all in the Christmas spirit!
Apple nursery have been using positional language to describe where the witch is hiding. Is she next to the chair? Is she on top of the chair? Is she under the chair?
Since our topic this term is all about ‘people who help us’, we were very lucky to have a visit from some local firefighters. We got to learn all about the different equipment they use everyday and how they use it to save lives.
We even got to go inside the fire engine and experience what it must be like to be a firefighter racing to an emergency. Even Mrs Franks and Miss Watson got to have a turn!
As a final goodbye, the firefighters beeped the horn and flashed the sirens for us. It was so loud but really exciting too.
We can’t wait to meet more amazing ‘people who help us’ soon.
This week Apple nursery have been reading Room on the Broom and making magic potions. We have used our water play to learn about when a container is full, empty or half-full and the children have enjoyed exploring and using this language when making their potions as part of our Abracadabra topic.
Apple nursery enjoyed getting messy exploring pumpkins this week! We practised using different tools to cut, scoop and squish what we found inside the pumpkins.
