Settling In

This week we have been reading the story of 'Goldilocks and The Three Bears.' After reading the story we decided to make our own porridge and try it. We followed a recipe to make the porridge and talked about the ingredients and how it changed when we cooked it. Once it was cooked we tasted it and we could choose to have it either plain, with jam or with golden syrup.  
This week we have continued our learning using the story of 'Goldilocks and The Three Bears.' We have been using paper plates to create bear masks, counting how many bears live in each house, retelling the story and drawing pictures of our own families.

Our Bear Hunt to Middleton Woods!

This week went had a ‘Teddy Bear’s Picnic’. For the picnic we chose what sandwich we wanted and then made it. After making our sandwich we then cut it into a bear shape. Whilst making our sandwich we talked about what other foods we would take on a picnic. After our Picnic we got on the Minibuses and went to look for a Bear in Middleton woods. Unfortunately we didn't find a bear but we did find acorns and a playground.    

Welcome to the End of the week!

Welcome back to some of the children who have returned to Nursery this year, and a big hello to our new friends who have joined us. Everyone has settled in really well and have enjoyed doing lots of different activities and exploring the setting. Here are a few pictures of the children from their first few weeks after the holidays.

At Nursery we have been reading lots of Bear stories. The children enjoyed reading the story of 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' and doing lots of activities linked with the story. We made porridge like the Three Bears, mixing the ingredients together and cooking it in the microwave. We then added sugar, syrup or jam and tasted the flavours to find our favourite. We have also been busy making bear pictures and bear masks in the writing area, sticky area and painting area.

Another story the children loved reading this term has been 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt'. The children joined in with the story and enjoyed acting out eat part of the story. We also had a 'tough spot story scene' of 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt', using the characters the children retold the story themselves. As part of this story we also had a messy walk! The children were very unsure at first as we had to walk through tomatoes, baked beans, bread and water to find the teddy! Everyone had a go and really enjoyed themselves and getting messy! Well done everyone!
