‘Aaaarrgghh! Spider!’

This week Apple Nursery have focused their learning around the story ‘Aaaarrgghh! Spider!’ by Lydia Monks. We have made spiders out of playdough during busy fingers, learnt facts about spiders, counted the legs on a spider, played an incy windy spider game up and down the drainpipe as well as talked about things that make us feel scared and what we can do to help us when we feel that way.

Magical Mud!

In Apple Nursery this week we have been getting messy making a ‘Magical Mud’ mixture! The children mixed corn flour and water together, then added mud and grass. We talked about what the dry powder felt like and how it changed when we added liquid. They had lots of fun mixing and pretending to be the gloopy monster from ‘Room on the Broom’!


Apple Nursery have enjoyed exploring Autumn this week – collecting leaves and acorns, leaf rubbing, leaf sorting and counting as well as leaf pictures. We read the story ‘Don’t Hog the Hedge’ and learnt that sharing is caring.

Take a look at some of the things we have been doing…

The Colour Monster

Last week in Apple Nursery, we read ‘The Colour Monster’ as part of World Mental Health Day. We talked about the different feelings explored in the book and created our own ‘Feelings Monsters’ using a range of materials.

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt!

Apple Nursery have enjoyed exploring the story ‘We’re going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen this week. We have joined in with phrases and actions, played with the characters and taken part in a Bear Hunt Obstacle Course!
