 20th - 24th November 2017

This week has been road safety week. The children in our nursery have been using the road signs to role play how to keep safe.  They enjoyed playing the part of the lollipop lady/man, stopping the traffic and helping their friends to cross the road safely.

On Friday 10th November we came to nursery wearing the colour red. We wore red to help us to think about Rememberance day and why we learn about it. We coloured in pictures of poppies and watched a special on the Cbeebies website   to help us to understand why we were poppies.

Here are a few comments that the nursery children made throughout the day

"People died in the war" Scout         "It's Remembrance day...we have to wear red"  Ava-Mae           "Poppies grew in the war"  Lara

The children have been very keen to talk about how they are going to celebrate Halloween and many of them said that they had a pumpkin at home. In our nursery we decided to explore the insides of a pumpkin. Some of the children pretended to make pumpkin soup and others wanted to cut the pumpkin up into smaller pieces.

The nursery children have finally started their journey through the foundation stage and what a fantastic day they have all had. All the children have settled in very well and have been very busy. We have been choosing within the new classroom and exploring the outside area.  Well done everyone!
