Week beginning Monday 14th January 2019
We have been crown creating crazy this week! The children have enjoyed using a variety of materials to decorate crowns and become Kings and Queens. They haven't forgotten about their friends and families and have personalised crowns for Mums, Dads, brothers, sisters, grandma and grandads too!
During key group times we have been practising our listening skills whilst enjoying stories and taking part in discussions with our friends.
Week beginning Monday 7th January 2019
Happy New Year! We are welcoming everyone back and saying hello to some new Explorers who are joining us this month.
We are starting our learning this term with a new theme of Kings and Queens. We will be sharing what we know about Royals and looking at some of the things they might wear like crowns and jewels.
The cold weather has sparked an interest in ice and this has linked with our knowledge of Queens as we use the movie 'Frozen' to inspire our role play and song times.
Week Beginning 10th December and 17th December
We have been busy little elves over the last two week making Christmas cards and decorations. The children have written letters to Father Christmas, dressed up as elves and been on lots of journeys to on the Christmas train (when it has not been raining).
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the Christmas Celebration. The children really enjoyed performing the songs they have been learning. We hope everyone had a great time. Please upload any photos you have to Tapestry, we would love to see them.
All of the Explorers team wish you a very Merry Christmas and we look forward to seeing you in 2019.
Week Beginning 3rd December 2018
Week beginning 26th November 2018
This week we have been thinking about Stick Man's family tree and creating our own family trees. We have been thinking about who lives with us and who else is really important to us.
We have also said 'Good Luck' to Miss Glock who starts her maternity leave next week. The children have been busy making her a memory card including all of their thumb prints and we held a surprise party on Thursday morning to wish her all the best.
Week Beginning 19th November 2018
This week Stick Man moved in to nursery. We made him a family tree so he felt at home, we have listened to his story and been taking part in lots of Stick Man related learning.
We have created our own Stick Man figures by joining sticks using different materials.
We love sharing things that you have done at home. Please feel free to add pictures to Tapestry and we will share them in the classroom.
Week Beginning 12th November
This week we have been thinking about how we look after ourselves. The children have been teaching Smoky the Dragon puppet how to use the toilet and wash his hands. We have been learning how to wash our hands properly to stop the spread of those pesky germs.
There has been lots of interest in cars and painting so we combined these in a car paint tracks slope, with a handy car wash at the bottom.
We will be joining in with the Children In Need Fundraising events on Friday and will learn about the help that Pudsey the Bear gives to children.
5th-9th November 2018
This week our learning theme has been 'Fireworks and Bonfires'. The children have been talking about firework displays they have seen. We have had lots of opportunity to create firework art using paint and glitter. We made our own firework sounds and used loud and quiet voices.
The children have been interested in looking after babies and have spent lots of time learning how to bath and dress dolls.
