At welcome time today we worked on developing our finger muscles by singing our finger exercise songs. Mrs Blain was then talking about senses which is our short topic for the next few weeks. Arianna's mum was in helping us this morning.
We were all in the mid hall today having lots of fun. Some of the children left early to attend a Garden party at Calderwood school. We had the water tray out with the foam road for the children to construct. The wooden blocks were out for construction along with our construction book to give the children some ideas, however most of them make their own excellent creations.
The kitchen area was out to create the house corner and it was well used by all the children. The reading corner was also in full swing with our sofa and comfy cushions. We had the airplanes game out, a number puzzle and the Hudl for table top games. The children were very good at taking turns with the Hudl.
Mrs Brown was creating a mind map with the children on the ways we could learn about our senses. Phoebe said we could bring in noisy toys. Mrs Blain was working with the children on listening. The children had to close their eyes and listen to what they could hear in nursery. They then drew a picture of what it was. Anton drew musical notes as he could hear some music.
Snack this morning was baguette with apples, grapes and slices of cheese. Along with milk or water to drink.
At Get together time Mrs Blain was teaching the children about ears. She had brought in a stethoscope to teach the children about listening. They loved listening to each others heart beat.
For physical time the children had to complete an obstacle course blindfolded!! Mrs Blain was providing the instructions. It was super fun.
Mrs Blain read the story 'Gus goes to school' and then we spoke about going to school and who was feeling a bit nervous. Mrs Blain reiterated how going to school is fun and we don't need to worry.
Have a great weekend everyone.
