As part of our ‘Growing ‘ topic we have shared the story Jack and the Beanstalk. We have talked about people and objects that are tall and short. The children have created some beautiful paintings of a tall Giant and a shorter Jack.
In the Nursery this week we have shared the story Jasper’s Beanstalk. Each family group have placed a bean in a bag and attached the bag to the windows. I wonder which bean will grow the biggest? Afterwards the children painted Jasper from the story, your artwork is amazing! Well done everyone!
We’ve had a great first club session tonight. We selected our own pebble and designed our first pebble painting design. Our first pebble theme is ‘love and hope’. We can’t wait to start painting them next week! Don’t forget to bring an old, over-sized t-shirt/shirt to put over your school uniform next week.
We have been learning all about Caterpillars in the Nursery. We had a special delivery of real Caterpillars for us to take care of. The children are very exited to see what changes occur. The children worked really hard painting caterpillars in the style of Eric Carle, the author of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
The children have also looked closely at repeating patterns and used a cardboard tube to create a repeating pattern caterpillar.Well done everyone!
We have been very busy in Reception learning about Easter and today we made (and ate!) chocolate nests.
We are very much looking forward to our Easter egg hunt and Easter bonnet parade tomorrow!
The children in Reception have loved reading the story Monkey Puzzle by Julia Donaldson. We have been looking at rhyming words and have made lots of the animals from the story. We also learnt about symmetry and made our own symmetrical butterflies.
