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 had great fun baking and decorating their own Gingerbread Man this week. This time we made sure they couldn’t escape!
Apple Nursery have been learning about ‘The Gingerbread Man’ this week. Yesterday he escaped from the classroom and we looked all over the school to try to find him! The CCTV video showed him running outside Nursery. We tried finding some clues about where he had gone. We thought he might have broken the goalposts and we found crumbs in the infant gazebo where he must have eaten his breakfast!
Then we made some ‘LOST’ posters to let other people know to look for him too.
Apple Nursery have been enjoying learning about ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ this week. We made and tasted porridge, dressed up and used the role-play area to re-tell the story. Everyone created a picture from Goldilocks for Baby Bear to say sorry for eating his porridge and breaking his chair.
Apple Nursery’s topic this term is ‘Let it Snow’. This week we have been reading the story ‘Elmer in the Snow’ and exploring ice. We enjoyed touching the ice and talking about what we know about ice. We discovered that using salt and leaving ice in a warm place helps it melt and turns ice into water.
Apple Nursery enjoyed a visit from Santa this week and had fun watching Mr Marvel.
Apple Nursery enjoyed walking around the school grounds looking for signs of autumn. We collected different leaves and then did some sorting and counting back in the classroom.
Apple Nursery children made some fantastic bridges out of newspaper for their home learning challenge.
Apple Nursery have enjoyed exploring water in science and using technological toys this week as part of our STEM activities.
Science Challenge – can you make the water stay in a cup when you turn it upside down?
We have been giving instructions to Code-a-pillars to make them move and using remote controllers to control Rugged Racers.
Last week, Apple Nursery enjoyed reading this book and finding words that rhyme.
Throughout the week, we explored using our senses. We had lots of fun getting messy when touching the food from the story!
