This week was British Science Week and everyone in St George’s took part in science activities to celebrate this. Our activity in Nursery looked at ‘Brilliant Bubbles’. We talked together on the carpet about how we blow bubbles and what shape they are. We discussed whether we could make some different shape bubbles and the children thought that we would be able to.
We have some star and heart shaped bubble wands in nursery and the children were excited to test out if we could make different shaped bubbles. We watched together as a child demonstrated with the star shaped wand. Unfortunately it didn’t come out star shaped and the children were very disappointed! We then had lots of fun blowing bubbles around our outside area!
As we start this half term with pancake day on Tuesday, our book focus this week will be 'Mr Wolf's pancakes'! and we will be looking at how to make pancakes (and eat them!) as well as role-playing the story pretending to be the different characters.
We will be continuing our Come and See topic - Gathering - looking at how people gather together to celebrate mass at church.
This week we have been focusing on Valentine's and have been looking at the story 'Guess How Much I Love you'. We have had lots of heart related activities in our areas and we are looking forward to our Valentine's disco on Friday Morning.
Thanks so much to the parent helpers who came on the school trip with us, as well as those parents who also offered to come. Apologies that we couldn't take you all with us this time. The children had lots of fun watching the film and it was lovely to be able to include this as part of our Frozen topic.
Our Spring term topic this year is 'Frozen'.
To start our topic off, we had to find a way to release some small world characters that had been trapped in ice by Elsa accidentally! The children enjoyed feeling the ice and suggesting ways that we could free the characters in order to be able to play with them.
We have turned our role play area into Anna and Elsa's castle, our small world area is also a winter wonderland, as is our play dough area. The construction area has pictures to prompt the children to have a go at making their own castles and there has been lots of snow and snowflake related work going on too.
Our Come and See topic is celebrating and we have thinking about what we have at a celebration as well as the different celebrations that might take place at church.
Our Come and See topic for the next few weeks will be focusing on ‘Baptism’ and we will be learning all about this special ceremony. If your child has been baptised, please can you send a photograph from their special day in to school for our display.
Welcome to our Nursery class page. We have had a lovely start to the school year, meeting all our new friends as they start, with many more still to join us.
This term we will be learning all about 'ourselves' as part of our Come and See work.
