It’s been another busy week this week.
• We’ve continued to celebrate our similarities and differences and taken more new pictures to put on our Identity Tree next week and we’ve been continuing to learn new signs and symbols to help us with our learning in nursery like the same, different and safe The children now know about their right to be safe and how to keep safe in nursery as we’ve looked at our 5 Finger Rights Respecting Rules and practiced how to do good, playing, sharing, good and kind talking, using kind and safe hands and doing good sitting, looking and listening.
• We’ve also been thinking about taking care of our planet and as it was National Re-cycle week, we read a story about Michael Re-cycle who is a recycling superhero. His picture is now on all of our re-cycle bins at nursery and he is helping us to remember to recycle our paper.
• We’ve exercised our bodies by dancing, practiced singing and saying some of our favourite rhymes and counted all the friends in our group.
• We’ve explored the rain and how it changes the nursery garden…the downpour on Friday was particularly exciting!
• Other learning included thinking about Harvest. We’ve tasted different fruits, made and ate vegetable soup for snack, harvested fruit in the nursery garden and there were enough pears for everyone to take one home. We learned about where food is grown and how and when we harvested it. We also learned about lots of different fruits in the African story that we read called Handa’s Surprise…where all of the animals kept taking the lovely fruit from Handa’s basket!
• During the week lots of families have brought in tinned food to give to Gears of Goodwill, a charity who will be taking this food to Derby to help people who are homeless. We sung our Harvest Table song to help us with our learning and collected 3 giant boxes and chatted about how homeless people may feel and why it was really good to help them by sharing some of our food.
• On Friday we joined with lots of people worldwide to take part in the MacMillan’s ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’. Our families donated cakes which we sold at nursery and as we couldn’t share cups of tea and coffee on site, our grown-ups chose take away tea or coffee to take home with them. We are so proud to have made nearly £150 for Macmillan Cancer Research and at nursery it helped us to learn that by buying those cakes we were helping people who were poorly.
