Ourselves - Autumn 1

We have been learning about our bodies and our expressions. The children have enjoyed painting self portraits, making hair and eye colour pictograms, making their own 'mini-me' collage and many other activities. Here are some pictures.

The Gruffalo


We read the story of 'The Gruffalo' which the children really enjoyed. We talked about the characters in the story, described them and chose our favourite. The children were able to develop their story skills by acting out different parts of the story, moving like the characters and even making their own creative characters. In the hall, we moved like the different animals in the story and had lots of fun! Take a look at our pictures.

We're Going on a Bear Hunt


We red the story 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' which the children loved. We acted out the story and talked about prepositions in continuous provision. The children were able to draw their favorite scene from the story and these are displayed in our nursery. In the week we had a teddy bears picnic, children brought in their favorite teddy bear and we went on a Bear Hunt to the school hall. In the malleable area we had to draw shapes and prints in the foam to represent travelling through the snowstorm. We had lots of fun with this story.
