This week we read the story of leaf Man by Lois Ehlert. We spoke about the textures of leaves and thought about all the different things we could make using different autumnal items, can you guess what we made? In Understanding the World we spoke about the changes that happen to leaves when they are heated and dried out we placed some leaves that we plucked from the trees into the microwave and were amazed how they changed when they were heated! We also explored mixing colours, we used blotting paper and pipettes to drip ink onto leaf shapes and commented on what happened when the colours were mixed!.

This week we were visited by Ruth Lowe the schools local nurse she spoke to the parents about oral hygiene and brought her friend 'Bad-Man' (named by a member of the nursery class) The dinosaur with her. We talked about the important of brushing our teeth and the children all got to have a go helping Bad-Man clean his teeth!

We also had a go at drawing and writing about the character Ferdie from the story.
In our Mathematics family group this week we have been focusing on the shape square, we spoke about its properties and went on a shape hunt around school looking for items in the environment which were square shaped. What squares can you see?

Innovate: Getting The Lost Bear Home!
This week Nursery have been reading the story 'This is the Bear and the scary night'. We spoke about the story and found our own lost bear in the forest school. We spoke about how we could care for the bear. We gave him a bath and called the doctors to check he was ok. After the bear was feeling much better we came up with lots of different ideas to get him home. Some of us made cars, trains buses and planes to get the bear home and others decided to write a letter to the bears family letting them know where he is!
Thankfully the bear is now home safe and sound!
This week in nursery we brought our own teddies in from home. We spoke about where we got our teddies from, who bought them and the differences and similarities in our toys.
