Nursery – Autumn 1 Blog
Our First Few Weeks
We have had an amazing first few weeks in Little Puffin Nursery, we have made amazing relationships with our new friends and enjoyed learning both inside and out. Over the last few weeks we have learnt the colours in sign language, enjoyed sharing stories with our friends, got to explore the water area in the rain and the children loved learning all about Frida Kahlo as part of our expressive arts last week to name but a few of the things we have explored. Well done Little Puffins!
Little Puffin’s Walk!
This week the Little Puffin’s went on our first walk. We have been learning all about ourselves and where we live. Earlier in the week the children looked at photographs of Fleetwood from the past – the children loved telling us about how it was different. We loved learning about the old train station and what the trams used to look like. We then looked at Google Maps and explored our route for a walk around Fleetwood. The children enjoyed pointing out places they knew on the plan and then on the actual walk. They all walked so well and made us all proud. We loved exploring using the binoculars and pointing out what we could see. What a wonderful first outing, well done Little Puffins!
The Colour Monster!
This week the children have been learning all about The Colour Monster. We have been exploring the different feelings and learnt our new Makaton sign “calm”. In maths we have been sorting the coloured spaghetti and using the tweezers to pick it up to develop our fine motor skills. We have been developing our understanding of colour by painting the ice with water coloured paints and watching to see how the colours change and linked this to our understanding of the world by observing what happened to the ice over time. We welcome our parents in for our first “Come on in..” event and we had some special visitors in EYFS, we met some local police officers and the RNLI! What a busy week, well done Little Puffins!
Hartbeeps Halloween Special
This week the Hartbeeps sensory class visited us for a special Halloween event. The children got dressed up as pumpkins, enjoyed singing and dancing, making Halloween soup, flying on a magic carpet and playing different games based around rhymes and songs. They had the best time, thank you Hartbeeps.
