Tree-mendous Tuesday

Today was a very wet and cold Tree-mendous Tuesday and our new friends certainly met the challenge. They squelched through the mud although Jay- J wasn’t too keen on messing up his new wellies! So we found a puddle to clean them in but he wasn’t keen on that either!

The hale stones fell on us but our friends stuck their tongues out and used their senses to taste the cold ice! Amber caught lots and Annabelle said, ‘that was my fun bit!’We had some hot chocolate afterwards so it warmed us up. Aston decided to hide from us behind a tree. We thought it might be a monster but then we saw Aston’s smiling face! William, Mitchell and Summer balanced on a log and held their arms out to steady themselves.

We collected sticks and talked about the sizes we had found. Lexie T found a huge one and Oliver found one to represent Mummy and a bigger one for Daddy. He didn’t put them down and took them home as a souvenir! Olivia just wanted to be with Rowan and Maisy liked holding Mrs Waring’s hand! Damian was with Mrs Fenton and loved pointing out the big trees. Lottie got mud on her nose which Livia found funny! Theo M enjoyed standing on every mole hill so his boots were super muddy as did Theo C. I don’t know how they lifted their legs with the weight of their boots! Lexi R and Heathley were great friends and ran through the woods together.

Aston found a worm and some of our friends carefully had a hold and we climbed up and down a hill. What fun we had!

Our new friends!

What a great day we had today. It was so lovely to meet our new friends and get to know them. Our older children were so kind and made them feel welcome and introduced them to our rules and routines.

The morning children accessed the provision inside and out and were involved in lots of activities. Damian liked the slide, Amber loved Suretots, Lexie T enjoyed snack time (especially the biscuit!) Maisy tried a carrot although she didn’t love it! Jason loved the apparatus in Suretots and Oliver enjoyed playing with the  Peppa Pig small world figures.

Heathley was excited to have a go on the bikes and Olivia counted 7 fish in the water tray outside. Rowan wanted to play bat and ball with Miss Frisby and Alisha loved going in the house outside and climbing up the stairs.  Oscar was eager to build sand castles and knock them down again! And Lexi R painted a lovely picture of her Mummy using lots of colours! Theo really enjoyed giving his friend a lift on the bikes and cutting and sticking. Phew! I’m tired just typing what they did today! I be there are some very tired children tonight.

Tomorrow we are on our adventure in the woods to see what fun we can have!

Regular readers!

I’m so proud of all our regular readers that have read at least four times a week over a four week period and have received a certificate and prize for their hard work. The children are always eager to see if it will be them and they all clap each other on their achievements.

Keep up the good work!

Monster rock buns

What fun we had making monster rock buns with Mrs Wood. The children had to help her find the numbers on the scales and put the ingredients in the bowl. They mixed and whisked the ingredients together and I’m sure a little bit ended up on tiny fingers and the evidence quickly disappeared into tummies!

They smelt and tasted delicious. Did you get a taste?

An extravaganza!

Take One Picture is the National Gallery’s countrywide scheme for primary schools which aims to inspire a lifelong love of art and learning by promoting the role of visual arts within education. In nursery we looked at the picture ‘A Roman Triumph’ by Peter Paul Rubens and decided to act out the parade in the woods and bring our art work to life. We listened to what a trumpet fanfare sounded like and used cardboard tubes to be our trumpets. We used other instruments too to be extra noisy!

In the picture there are different animals like a cow which Isabella pointed out was wearing a crown! An elephant was also featured so we wore animal masks to make it more realistic!

We really enjoyed it as well as the finding worms, taking the decorations off our tree in the woods, squelching (and falling) in the mud, finding and re-hiding our rocks and climbing on anything we could possible climb on!

Next week we introduce our new friends to the woods. I wonder what they will think!

Maths monster

Today some of our friends met our maths monster who likes to eat numbers so we had to feed him!

Miss Frisby asked us to find a number and we fed it to the hungry monster. What a great way to learn numbers!

Welcome back!

It was so lovely to see you all today and hear about your Christmas. What a fabulous time you all had and Santa was very kind to you!

You brought in some fabulous monster pictures, models and collages. They were very scary! You also knew some great facts about animals that live in cold places and your baking looked yummy. I’m sad that I didn’t get to taste it!

Magic reindeer food!

I think today was the best day ever and it might have been a little too exciting for Miss Frisby! Santa had been in touch and asked if we could help him. He needed some reindeer food making so that the reindeer’s  had lots of energy to be able to pull the huge sleigh full of toys. The food had a secret ingredient that he had sent to us and it was MAGIC DUST! This helps the reindeer fly! Miss Frisby was nearly flying because the magic was so strong but Aston and Poppy pulled her down! Although Summer was almost in the air! I hope they don’t start flying around the bedroom tonight because there was some sprinkled in their hair (accidentally on purpose by Miss Frisby!)

Don’t forget to sprinkle outside your door on Christmas Eve!

Have the best Christmas ever. I will miss you! x

Building

The afternoon children took the blocks out today and decided to build some fabulous creations. We have had a new train donated and Aston put it together then Mitchell decided to put buildings in its way so that it crashed! Aston, Lucie and Poppy found a star and used that to make a Christmas tree.

They all played cooperatively and shared the resources. There was lots of love on the carpet this afternoon!
