28/02/2020: Journey of the Antarctic flag, shrinking puddles, positional language, stories from the library...and lots of pancakes!

What a wet and snowy first week back for bees and ladybirds.


The children have really enjoyed recalling all about their holidays, by using the Tapestry app and it’s been fantastic to hear about all of your fun and learning at home with family and friends.


It’s been a busy week with lots of learning about positional language in our maths sessions using words like 'in front', 'behind,' 'on top' and 'under' we will be continuing this learning next week with some trickier words and using our signs and symbols to help us.


On Shrove Tuesday as well as making pancakes and eating them for snack, we learnt why Christian people have Shrove Tuesday at the beginning of Lent to prepare them for Easter. We also enjoyed pancake stories, tried pancake tossing in our home corner and decorated our own pancakes with a variety of toppings in the mark making area, before choosing whether to roll them, fold them or eat them whole!


Outside in the nursery garden, there have been so many puddles. We have been scooping the water from the puddles to the mud kitchen and watching as the size of the puddles changed.


At the end of session we were excited to see that our flag had arrives in Antarctic and we looked at photos of our
scientist friends holding the flag in amongst lots of penguins! exciting!


We have of course been enjoying lots of different stories throughout out the week, some of which came from libraries a long way away. We talked about borrowing and then returning them for others to enjoy...a little bit like how we share our toys at nursery.


We’ve also been listening to some new relaxing music and learning new ways to calm down our body and our minds...which is so important for children and adults alike and helps us to learn about the importance of positive mental health.
