Welcome to London!
Science Week in London Nursery
For 'Science Week 2020' the children have been exploring and investigating the diversity of our world.
On the first day we looked at the diversity of people. The children looked closely at their own features and discussed how we were different and similar to each other. They used mirrors to look closely at their eye colour, hair colour, skin colour and shapes of their features. We then used this information to create a pictogram of our hair colour using the interactive white board. Next we looked at our height and sorted ourselves into size order. Ms Thompson also measures us using a height chart so we could find out exactly how tall we were.
Preparing For Christmas
The nursery children having been getting very excited about this special time of the year and have been exploring what Christmas is all about.
We have been reading the story of the first nativity and put on a performance of 'A Wriggly Nativity', with the Reception children, for all their families to come and see. Each child had a very important role in the play. The children were fluffy sheep, singing angels, shining stars, dancing cows and wriggly chickens!
The children finished the term taking part in lots of christmas themed activities, such as making and writing
christmas cards, role playing in Santa's Grotto and wrapping Christmas presents. Finally we had a big Christmas party with music, dancing, games, party food and, of course, a visit from Father Christmas himself!
Merry Christmas everyone!!!
Where do vegetables and fruits come from?
The nursery children have been preparing for our Harvest Festival next week. We looked at different fruits and vegetables and discussed what they were called and whether we had eaten them before. We then thought about where the fruits and vegetables come from. Some of us thought we got them from 'Sainsbury's' and 'Aldi'. We had a chat about how they got into the supermarket and how fruits and vegetables grow. To explore this idea a little further we got our welly boots on and visited our local allotments. We are very lucky as the Grandad of one of our children has an allotment and Mr Khan was happy to show us around. We saw so many fruits and vegetables growing - big, round pumpkins, small red tomatoes, purple beetroot, juicy pears and even a few strawberries! Mr Khan showed us how to use a garden fork to dig up red potatoes hiding under the ground. He also kindly picked lots of pears for us to take back to nursey to eat at snack time. Yummy!
Our First Month
The children in London Nursery have been very busy settling into the routines of the nursery, getting to know each other and having fun! We have tried lots of new activities including building houses, exploring our forest area, washing cars, drawing pictures and lots of dressing up.
