This month in nursery we have been fortunate enough to take part in a 6 week fitness programme run by ‘Super Star Sport’. Children participated in different physical development challenges set up by coach Mat. At the end of each week one child is picked and awarded a certificate for excellent participation, listening and enthusiasm throughout the session.
In nursery we have been focussing on ‘celebrations’, to allow children to demonstrate their understanding, in nursery we decided to celebrate ‘Peacock’s 4th birthday’. Children were very excited, they all made some cards and wrapped presents. We ended the week by having a birthday party. Children made their own sandwiches and made some healthy choices of what they wanted in their sandwich. We all sat around and had a picnic.
This month we have continued to focus on reciting some number names in sequence. We have enjoyed singing some number songs and making our own actions. Children found it exciting when they had to find the numbers hidden within the different materials.
We have learnt about different celebrations, this month the children have heard the Christian nativity story. Children used small world objects and hand puppets to retell the story.
To mark national jumper day children in nursery came dressed in their Christmas jumpers.
