More Snow Activities

Brrrrrrrr! Snow!

We discovered that our yard had been covered in a layer of snow when we came to Nursery. Even though it was very cold outside, we wrapped up and went out to explore. We discovered that we could make patterns in the snow wth our hands, fingers and the bottom of our shoes. Some people managed to make tiny snowmen with a little help from Ms Cameron. It felt very cold and it promoted lots of language such as crispy, crunchy and soft. We hope it snows enough to make a larger snowman next time!

Jonah And The Whale

We read the story of Jonah and the whale and then we made a very large whale using collage. We acted out the story and pretended that we were inside Jonah's tummy. Lots of children thought of different things they could see inside the whale's tummy. We researched three different kinds of whale and found out that a killer whale is approximately seven children long! We used our friends to measure. Jonah and the whale prompted lots of mark making and some people even made a model of the boat on the stormy see and the whale from Duplo.

Week 2 - We have continued this week with the story 'The Magical Musical Box'. The children have played 'What is the sound in the box?' and also made their own musical instruments (popcorn shakers and rubber band banjos)

We have been using the nursery rhyme Incy Wincy Spider to help us measure. We made lots of different lengths of water spouts for Incy. Then we compared them to see which were short, long, shortest and longest. We also talked about positional language to decide where to place Incy on the spout. When we were finished we asked everyone if they were scared of spiders and made a class bar chart to show the results.

Today we learnt how to make our own popcorn/ The children observed the process of adding oil and sweetcorn kernels to a pan. We heated the pan and listened out for the popping of the kernels. We tasted the popcorn but will be using it next week to make shakers and food for the birds.MORNING CHILDREN


The Magical Musical Box

Welcome back after the Christmas break and a big welcome to our new starters.


This week we have been collecting sounds for the king's magical musical box. We made sounds using our voices then we made loud sounds and quiet sounds with the musical instruments. We had to collect all the sounds in the magic box so the king could have music to listen to at bedtime.

We then sorted our musical instruments into scrapers, shakers and tappers. It was great fun!
