Nursery

 

This week, we had a go at creating sculptures out of clay. We learnt where clay comes from and how to mold it with hands or tools. For St Joseph's Day, we learnt about the work of carpenters and, with Jim's kind help, we explored the tools they use. We also learnt that St Joseph is often represented with a white lily and we made white lily brooches out of felt and said a special prayer to St Joseph. We sowed cress and pumpkin seeds, planted strawberry and viola seedlings and checked on the onions we planted last week.We had an amazing experience of baking bread with one of the children's family member who came to talk to us about her job as a baker and we learnt a little bit about money and banking with another lovely mummy who visited us to talk about her job in Canary Wharf. We also went to school's book sale and bought some lovely new books.

This week, we planted onion bulbs in individual flower pots. We had an amazing visit from one of the children's family members who is a baker and who showed us how to make bread dough. That inspired play in our baker shop. Perfecting our fine motor skills, we also made rosaries to contribute to school's Lent display.

This week, with the sunny weather, we spent a lot of time having fun outside. We dressed up and played music and played in dens and tents. We visited the art room to do some free drawing and painting as we tried to put the knowledge we gained during our early mark making program in practice by using vertical, horizontal, loopy, etc lines as well as other shapes in our drawings and paintings. 

You can also see us practicing our dance, doing a 'playdough disco' first thing in the morning and playing in our doctor's surgery.

This week, we have been doing lots of pretend play in our space rocket and using small world models. We made space rocket models using recycled materials and play dough aliens. We used geometrical shapes in a range of activities.We learnt to make 'loopy' lines in write dance. We wrote our first-ever stories, thinking about the characters and events that occurred first, later and at the end. We practiced different 'animal walks' in PE to strengthen our muscles. We used musical instruments in a range of phonics activities. We also made St Valentine's Day cards. We have been so busy!

Look at us learning about Chinese New Year, going into space in a rocket, working out in PE to strengthen our core and arm muscles and exploring a range of movement while going to the moon. You can also see us using musical instruments in phonics: playing loud and quiet, fast and slow. What a lot of fun!

Our trip to church was the highlight of our week. We were able to see all the things we had been learning about, such as the lectern, the altar, the font, hymn books, chalice, stained glass windows, statues, etc. We practiced how to behave at church; for instance, Father Cristiano showed us how to genuflect to say 'hello' to Jesus. We learnt about the celebrations at church. We saw a baptism and a picture of a marriage. We explored all that learning during play in our pretend church. 

Thank you to all the mums who kindly helped us during our church trip.

Our topic this term is 'Travel'. We have been learning about different types of boats by reading stories and information boats. We made boats using bricks and recycled materials and we swam our boats. 

In RE, we have been learning about celebrations. We learnt about celebrations and church and different objects we can see in a church such as hymn books, a font, stained glass windows, statues, crucifix, chalice, etc. We are hoping to gain first-hand experience of the learning we did by visiting our church next week. We read and acted out the story of Jesus' presentation in the Temple. 

We also practiced combining horizontal and vertical movements to draw zig-zags as part of our 'Write Dance' lessons.
