Look what we've been up to October 2019

We planted bulbs in nursery today! These were Daffodils, Tulips and Muscari bulbs. We used trowels to fill our pots with compost, we then made a little hole to bury our bulbs before covering them over with more compost. We can’t wait for Spring time to see the beautiful flowers grow. 🌷🌼

Fine motor activity - We have been making Mr Potato Heads in nursery this week. We have enjoyed making “funny ones, happy ones, sad ones and bald ones” We have even attempted to turn ourselves into Mr Potato Head by trying his bits on! 😃

We baked cakes in nursery for the first time today! This was to celebrate Xzayliah’s birthday. We put a candle in Xzayliah’s cake so we could all sing Happy Birthday to her! 🎂 🎶 🎈

Friday 11th October- Dane and Lisa from the RSPB came to talk to us today. Dane read us a story called ‘A home for ladybird’. We really enjoyed the story with some of us getting the opportunity to put on a finger puppet - either a ladybird, spider or a bee!! (Mrs Ehlen said she’s going to buy some for us).Dane told us that insects have 6 legs and it is an insect. We counted 8 legs on the spider, and Dane told us it is an arachnid!! He said the most important thing to remember is not to stamp on bugs but to respect nature.

We have been exploring the different textures and smells of oranges, lemons and limes in our water tray today. We scooped them up using nets. We made “soup, sandwiches and pies” We thought they all smelt “nice” and felt “squishy” 🍋

We have been mark making on our new boards using the “special pens” ✏️

We have loved playing in the lentils today! We buried our hands, let it sprinkle like rain, filled our big pots and small pots, scooped, poured and made lots of sprinkly mess! 🥄 🤚

Fine motor activity- We have been trying really hard to screw the nuts onto the bolts using our fine motor skills!

We have been getting creative, making lots of lovely pictures using a selection of different resources! ✂️ ✏️
