This week to celebrate Shrove Tuesday the children made pancakes; they cracked the eggs, poured the milk and whisked all the ingredients together. They then had the opportunity to try and flip the pancake when it was cooked. We all enjoyed eating the pancakes we’d made at snack time.

After the children had enjoyed their vegetable stir fry snack a Chinese dragon came to visit us! The children played percussion instruments as they followed it around the nursery’s garden. They were recreating what they had seen in a video about Chinese New Year celebrations and had great fun doing it!

This week the children have been learning about Chinese New Year. They watched some videos about how families prepare for and celebrate the start of the new lunar year. Afterwards the children prepared vegetables by washing and cutting them for Maria to cook in a wok. They mixed the vegetables with noodles and made a very yummy stir fry which was shared out at snack time.

A big thank you to all our parents/carers who spent time with their child in nursery today for ‘Sharing Success Day’. It was lovely seeing so many of you sharing your children’s Learning Journeys with them. This event is a marvellous way to strengthen our parent/nursery partnerships and celebrate the successes of your children.

This week our Ladybird (two year olds) class have been very busy making a winter display. We have been talking about winter with the children. We asked about the weather during winter time and the type of clothes we would wear, some of the words they used are written on the snowflakes.The adults wanted to create some wintery pictures but the children decided that they wanted to paint snowmen. The children painted their representations of a snowman using black paper and white paint to make the snowman stand out more. The children had a choice of different media to choose from so they could add different features and clothes to their snowman. The children remained focused and paid attention to detail and investigated new ways to do things for example, how different media such as material, paint and tissue paper can be used to create a picture. Using their own ideas they developed how they wanted their snowman to look.

Thank you to all the parents and their children who attended our “Messy Play” workshop this week. Together they made stretchy slime, cloud fluff corn flour, mouldable sand and explored the multiple uses of rice and spaghetti. Everyone had lots of fun whilst learning about the importance of messy play at nursery. An added bonus was that they got a pot of slime to take home!

Thank you to all the parents who attended our “Coffee Morning/Afternoon.” It was lovely to see you making new friendships, sharing ideas and thoughts on parenting whilst enjoying a hot drink and some tasty biscuits. We hold these sessions regularly throughout the year so look out for the posters for our next one and come along.

This week children and parents from our Ladybird (two year old) class went on an exciting autumn walk through Grange Park. We observed the changes to the trees in autumn, listened to the nature sounds and collected lots of leaves, sticks, acorns and conkers which we brought back to nursery to explore further next week.

The children really enjoyed creating a collaborative fireworks painting. Learning this new paint flicking technique was lots of fun and they were able to recreate their experiences of Guy Fawkes Night. The children also learnt new words to describe the noises the fireworks made such as crackle, fizz, bang, whoosh!

It was great to see so many parents and their children attending the Digital Learning workshop this week. Together they had the opportunity to explore our wealth of IT learning resources which are available to the children in our nursery. The ‘Wonder Bugs’ were particularly popular, also available were Rugged Racers remote control trucks, Blue-Bot programmable devices, Mini-Mash software and age appropriate ipads apps.
