Nursery- Spring 1- Week 2
Welcome back to all our children and families after the festive break. The children have shown great independence coming back to nursery remembering the rules and routines. This week we have started our new topic “My World, Your World”. From the curriculum maps returned, lots of children wanted to find out about different animals and places around our world. This week we have started to find out all about cold places in our world. We have enjoyed exploring the story “Say Hello to the Snowy Animals”. The children have learnt the names of new animals that would be found in the Arctic. They have also learnt new vocabulary to describe the animals such as fur and feathers.
In gymnastics we have explored different ways to move our bodies and will continue this next week. We learnt to negotiate the hall carefully and safety ensuring we keep a space around ourselves.
We have started show and tell, where the children have been invited to bring in and talk about their favourite book from home. It has been great to hear the children talk so confidently about their books, including naming the characters or sharing the story or information. We look forward to hearing more about the children’s favourite books over the coming weeks.
