Welcome to...ZebrClass!

Children have settled well into nursery and are having lots of fun playing and learning!

Our topic for Summer Term is...

Let's Go Outside!

 

 This term we will be taking part in lots of exciting activities linked to our new topic! We will be using our senses to explore the world around us, talking about the weather and taking part in a range of planting activities smiley watch this space to see photos of what we get up to...smiley

 

During an Understanding of the World lesson we worked as a team to plant flowers in hanging baskets for our nursery garden. We had lots of fun! Take a look at the lovely hanging baskets next time you walk through our nursery garden smiley

 

On Wednesday 15th May we invited parents into nursery for our 'Creative' Inspire Workshop. Thank you so much to the families that were able to make it - the children had a lovely time exploring the activities and creating some works of art!

 

 

On Tuesday 21st May we had a speedway motorbike rider come into school. He showed us his cool motorbike and talked to us about how he rides his bike at the speedway track. Nursery children were shocked to find out that the motorcycle has no brakes! 

 

 

On Friday 24th May we enjoyed a Teddy Bear's Picnic in our nursery garden. Nursery children listened to teddy bear songs whilst eating their delicious picnics! After we had eaten our yummy food, we went into Nursery and enjoyed taking part in a range of teddy bear themed activities. Thank you to all of the parents/ grandparents that joined us for this special activity smiley the children had a great time!

 

During our Understanding the World lesson (3.6.24) we had lots of fun exploring our 5 senses through a range of different activities. We enjoyed touching the gloop and smelling the mint and rosemary. We also had lots of fun walking through the rice - it felt funny under out feet!

Our topic for Spring Term 2 is...

 

 During this topic the children have been learning about the different animals that live on a farm. We have explored the different baby animals that are born in spring and the different types of produce that comes from a farm. The children have had the experience of caring for baby ducklings in Nursery, seeing them inside the eggs and then when they have hatched. To develop the children's learning further we also visited Ash End Farm to meet, feed and pet the different animals they have been learning about. 

We captured some great photos below of these experiences!

Our topic for Spring Term 1 is...

'On the Move'

 

 

 

During Spring 1 we are learning about vehicles and transport through our topic 'On the Move'. We have already had lots of fun exploring and learning about our new topic. We have discussed different types of transport that we have been on such as; planes, trains, cars, buses and taxis! It's been lovely to hear the children's experiences of using different methods of transport. 

 

During our Expressive Arts and Design lesson, we learnt about the artist Jackson Pollock. We learnt that he was famous for his movement art, so we had a go at making our movement art paintings by rolling cars through paint and then onto the paper. I think you'll agree that the children's art work looks absolutely FANTASTIC! smiley

The children have had lots of fun exploring autumn leaves, identifying the different colours of them and talking about the changes that have happened during this season in comparison to summer. We used real autumn leaves to make leaf rubbing pictures that are displayed in our classroom!

We also made autumn tree paintings using a dish brush to represent the leaves and focused on the colours red, yellow and orange! 

 

*************************************************************************************************

 

 

We have also been learning all about Bonfire Night and how to keep ourselves safe!

We watched a video of fireworks, read a firework story, took part in a firework dance 

and made our own firework pictures using cardboard tubes and paint!

Please can your child bring in a named water bottle everyday that contains only water or squash.

 

Please could you also make sure that your child's book bag is in Nursery everyday so that we are able to look at a book/listen to them read and change their books weekly.
