Den building in the dell

Our visit to the dell on Wednesday was very exciting last week. With the help of Mr Taylor, we enjoyed a morning making dens.

The children collected sticks to make their own dens for play people. It was lovely to watch the children working together to make them.

The adults had prepared a large den to have snack in. The children found this quite an adventure.

A new Dark Tent

On Monday the children were very excited to play in our new dark tent. We supplied them with torches to explore.

This was free with this years Sainsburys Active Vouchers.

We have also had a focus on shapes and had many activities included a shape hunt in the playground where the children had clipboards to mark the shapes they found.

We also had an obstacle course which went around the playground.

Nursery Ruby Class- Autumn Forage

Busy Dell visit

On Wednesday Ruby Class went to the dell with clipboards and a collection bag.

The children had a list of things we might find this time of year (nature was given a helping hand by the adults)

They were looking for fir cones, conkers, different coloured leaves and sticks.

After our visit we spent some time looking at our collections.

Many thanks to Mr Taylor for coming in to help.

Ruby Class – Shapes, Bird Feeders and Poppies

This Weeks Activities

Its been a busy week in Ruby class. The Nursery children have been learning about shapes and so were taken on a walk around the school to look for shapes in the environment.  They found lots of circles and rectangles and a few triangles.

For our Dell visit this week we made Bird Feeders. Mrs Lawes had a variety of fir cones which the children covered in lard, using their fingers. When they were covered the children rolled them in bird seed. Once we had all finished we hung them up on branches for the birds. The children had a chance to explore the dell and climb  and around the trees. We will continue to look at the wonderful Autumn collecting that the children have brought in over the next few days.

We were able to have a minutes silence in our classroom for remembrance day. The children used paper plates and template to make some poppies.

Nursery Activities

Early Years were lucky to have Mrs Mahammad to teach them about the Hindu celebration of Diwali.

Many of the staff were dressed in a Sari. Mrs Mahammad explained how they were fitted and about the decoration. She bless the class with a candle and told the traditional tale of Rama and Sita.

Many thanks to Mrs Mahammad.
