We had a wonderful first day! The children seemed so happy to be back and played so nicely together.
Thank you for all of your pumpkin and squash donations. We have used them in so many ways!
In maths we have been comparing their size, shape and weight. We counted the pumpkins and predicted how many seeds were inside. ‘100!’
We have been developing our motor skills by pushing different things into the hard skin of the pumpkins.
We have been scientists by exploring the pumpkins and making spells inside the shell.
We have been writers by developing our mark making skills and drawing faces on the pumpkins.
We had a lovely cosy day today in our pyjamas. First we showed everyone our pyjamas. Next we had a discussion on bedtime routines and the things we should do at bedtime.
Here were the children’s ideas-
-Have some warm milk
-Have a bath, shower or a wash
-Brush your teeth
-Wear cosy pyjamas
-Have a bedtime story
-Go to sleep around 7pm.
Please read to your children everyday. Stories at bedtime help promote sleep, language development, imagination and help them to understand the world.
At the end of the day, the children were presented with their very own Holbeach book bags and a book to keep. The children can bring their bag to nursery and borrow a book as often as they like.
Here are some pictures of our day.
At nursery we have been teaching the children to hold the book the correct way up, start at the beginning and turn one page at a time. They love to join in with repeated parts of the story!
We have been doing lots of activities to develop our muscles for writing!
We didn’t let the rain stop us playing! We wrapped up warm in our wetsuits and went outside to splash in the puddles and make some bubbles.
After we went inside and had warm milk!
