Nursery – Halloween Week

Nursery have had an incredible week exploring Halloween – we have developed our fine motor skills and used tweezers to collect Halloween pasta from the spiders web then created repeating patterns using it. We loved our visit to Cobble Hey Farm & Gardens to collect pumpkins, plant our own acorns into recycled pots that we made ourselves using newspaper and explore the farm. We then returned to nursery and made our own soup using the pumpkins and loved trying it. Later we created our own maps of the journey the pumpkin made from the farm to our table. We have enjoyed exploring the pumpkins with using our 5 senses and then painting some of the pumpkins and making our own pumpkin biscuits. We have had a fantastic week. In maths we have enjoyed exploring the number 1 – creating number 1 flapjacks using 1 scoop of each ingredient, making number 1 scenes with the playdough and going on a number 1 hunt around our classroom. We have developed our vocabulary talking about what a pumpkin is like. Well done Little Puffins!
