Week beginning 12/9/16.
This week we welcomed our new starters to Nursery who settled very quickly. Following on from last week's 'Elmer the elephant' theme, we focused on 'Colours' this week. We read the story 'WOW! said the owl' about a curious owl who decides to stay up all day instead of all night to discover what daylight is like. The owl is amazed at all the beautiful colours that are everywhere. The children in Class 1 made their own finger puppet owl to take outside on a 'colour hunt' - they found lots of different colours as well as making the most of the opportunity to explore the school grounds.
Later in the week we made multi-coloured ribbon sticks and used them to dance to some lively music! Two members of our class celebrated their 4th birthday! We learnt the counting rhyme '1 elephant went out to play upon a spider's web one day ...' - we even drew a giant spider's web on the school playground using chalks and acted out the rhyme whilst singing
