Today something exciting happened. Emmeline and Helen were digging the the garden and they discovered that some potatoes had grown!
They found 8 potatoes!
We spoke about what we could make with the potatoes and some children said chips.
The potatoes were very dirty. We scrubbed them clean.
Then we carefully chopped the potatoes into smaller pieces. It was very tricky.
While we waited for the chips to cook, we wrote some signs to tell people to come to our chip shop!
We washed up.
Hooray the chips are ready! We shared them with our friends. They were delicious.
Today we played with clay for the first time. We were a little bit reluctant at first but soon got stuck in and made lots of mess!
We used lots of language to describe the clay such as cold, wet, slimy and hard.
Next we used the clay to make a collaborative painting.
Do you want to help your children to use phonics in their reading? Are you unsure of the correct way to pronounce some of the sounds? Then these short films will really help.
Thank you for the snack donations. The children have been enjoying a variety of fruit and toast.
Yesterday we had a yummy treat. Guillermo (Alberto’s dad) baked us some delicious bread. We enjoyed with with some butter and jam!
Here are some pictures of the children using a knife to spread the jam.
See if they can do this at home.
The children initiated a game of pizza making with the play dough. We decided to make some real pizzas that we could eat!
Together we thought of some toppings that we might like on our pizza. We wrote lists and made pizzas in our creative area.
We carefully spread tomato puree with a knife and chopped some vegetables. Next we grated and sprinkled on some cheese.
On Friday morning the nursery parents stayed for a while to read with their children. They also listened to some advice on ways to help develop their children’s early reading skills; collected their new Nursery book bags and a free book. Thank you to all who attended. Have fun sharing books together!
