What we have been learning this term so far:

World Book Day

For the next two weeks the nursery will be focussing on story books! So far we have made some Hungry Caterpillar pictures for snack!

 

Mini Celebration- Tibetan New Year

One of our nursery parents shared with us how their family celebrated Tibetan New year. They let us look at a traditional Tibetan story, gave us some very delicious dumplings to try, known as ‘momos’ and also very kindly brought in some Tibetan outfits for us to try on.

Chinese New Year

The children have been learning all about Chinese New Year and its traditions. We read the story of the Zodiac, and watched some videos about the different celebrations. We enjoyed many art activities including creating lanterns and even designed a fantastic Chinese dragon!

A group of children accompanied Mrs Ross on a walk to our local Chinese supermarket. We brought back some delicious Chinese snack that we all enjoyed tasting. The snacks were so popular that the children decided to turn our house corner into a very popular Chinese restaurant.

 

 

Burns

We spent a couple of weeks enjoying some Scotland and Burns themed activities. The children danced to some Scottish Ceilidh music, created their own Tartan pictures and tried some traditional Scottish grub; haggis, neaps and tatties. We learnt some great Scottish songs and were lucky enough to have a gran come in to share them- Ally Bally Bee was a definite favourite. We were also delighted to have a nursery grandad come in to play us the pipes, it was very noisy so he played them outside .

 

Money

This term as part of a whole school moderation project, we have been learning about money. The children decided to turn our house corner into a shop. We role played how to use the till including the giving and taking of change. One of our children requested that we also add a bank with a bank machine to our shop, so we used our imagination and created our very own ATM.

A small group of children joined Mrs Ross on a trip to Sainsburys to buy some nursery snacks. At the till we talked about different types of money and how to pay.

Sun, Moon and Stars

The Children in the nursery returned from their Christmas holidays to learn about the sun, moon and stars. We learnt some facts about space and made many rockets!! We also learnt about time and discussed what things we did in the morning, afternoon, evening and night.
