Understanding the World

We put on our wellies and waterproofs and went to the forest to look for signs of Autumn. We found so many beautiful leaves and interesting insects. 

We baked a cake for our very own Macmillan Coffee Morning! 

We have been learning how to find our way around our outdoor environment. We recorded points of interests such as the playground, the tall trees, the ladybird stone, the allotment and the forest on our map. 

We have been learning how we all have similarities and differences. We learnt that we all have our own special name and that our handprints are all unique to us. We compared our hands then created salt dough hand prints. 

As part of Black History Month, our nursery children have enjoyed exploring how we are all differentThe children to talked about the colour of their hair and skin and discuss their likes and dislikes and similarities and differences.

We have been busy identifying all the different types of ladybird.  

The children have been learning how to complete a simple programme on the ipads. 

We have been learning about the small things we can do to help look after our planet and combat climate change. We hand washed the dolls clothes and hung them in the sunshine to dry.

On Green Day, we read the story 'It's Only One' by Tracey Corderoy and talked about how it is our responsibility to look after our planet. We learnt that we should put our litter in the bin and recycle our rubbish whenever we can. 

We have been learning all about owls. We discovered that Owls live in nests. We looked closely at a nest and wrote a list of all the natural materials you might find - twigs, moss, mud, feathers. Then we made a comfy nest for our owl little owl babies.
