Welcome to Nursery
In early years we learn through play
Learning through play is a term used in education to describe how a child can learn to make sense of the world around them. Through play children can develop social and cognitive skills, mature emotionally, and gain the self-confidence required to engage in new experiences and environments.
We listened to and spoke about the book ‘Neon Leon’
We had so much fun learning about builders. We created so many different models.
We read the books ‘Lighting a Lamp’ and ‘Rama and Sita’ to help us learn all about Diwali.
We then made rangoli patterns outside near our doors to bring us good luck.
We made firework pictures for the ‘The Festive of Light’
We really enjoyed painting beautiful henna on our hands and arms.
‘All about me’
We have been building using loose parts.
This week we have been learning about size.
We read the books ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ and ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’. We used the words big, medium and small while acting out the story.
