We have been looking at ourselves to see how we have changed since we were babies and talking about the things we can do now as we have grown up.
At the writing table the children are developing their pencil control by drawing pictures of their family and beginning to write about it. Come and look in the nursery if your child’s work is displayed or check your child’s drawer for work so you can talk about it at home.
The children have enjoyed dress up as fire fighters and putting out the house fire. They have also made fire engines and other types of transport in the garden using the wooden blocks.
The children have been busy making and receiving calls at the fire station.
The children have been keeping fit in the garden by sweeping up the leaves and climbing up the ladder and over the ‘A’ frame. They are getting more confident and independent each day.
We love to hear the children read to us. They can talk about the pictures or make up a simple story.
The children enjoy cooking in the home corner and naming the different types of food.
We have used different materials to glue a picture of our body. The children are learning to name the different parts of their body and put the parts in the correct area. Talk to your children as you get them dressed or sing songs that help them name parts of their body.
You could sing:
‘Head, shoulders, knees and toes’
‘If you’re happy and you know it…’
‘This is the way we wash our…’
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the ‘Children in Need’ charity. The children all looked lovely in their spotty clothes.
The children were very excited decorating their biscuit with icing and sprinkles. I hope they all enjoyed eating them!
