2 Year Old Nursery
Spring Term 1 2019
We have had a super busy time in our Two Year Old Nursery! As part of our class Christian Value of 'Love' we have been making clay hearts to share with people who are special to us, the children loved talking about their families and friends.
Since Spring is now upon us we have started to plant up our seeds and jazz up our growing pots ready for the season ahead. The children had to listen carefully to instructions on how to do this and we are now waiting to see what (hopefully) pops up!
The children have shown a huge interest in baking and cookery over the recent weeks, we have made spotty cupcakes, Hungry Caterpillar fruit salad and red velvet cookies so far. Cooking has given us lots of learning opportunities such as listening skills, mathematical language and understanding of the world.
Finally we are very excited to have started our Diddidance sessions, the children have expressed a real love for music and dance so these weekly classes give us a perfect opportunity to do this. We are learning lots of new songs and ways to express ourselves through dancing and movement - it's great fun!
Summer Term 2019
Carrying on from our Diddidance sessions we have been learning some new ring games. These activities build on our listening and attention skills and add to our already very wide repertoire of songs. The children especially love the Hokey Cokey!
We have had a big focus on mathematical development this half term. We have offered the children a range of activities and vocabulary to help them improve their understanding of number and shape, space and measure. Some of our favourites have been counting how many pieces of pasta we can thread onto string, sorting out bears according to colour and size, sharing our special number themed rhyme bag and becoming more familiar with what numbers actually look like.
The children absolutely loved participating in French Day. Preschool very kindly invited us over to join them on a whistle stop tour of all things French! We built Eiffel Towers, shared a continental breakfast, dug for onions and garlic and learnt the song Frere Jacques. It was a great day and the children were so engaged throughout.
