The children have all settled back into nursery really well and we have been having great fun going on a bear hunt! We had different sensory trays which the children explored with their hands and feet alongside reading the book. At the end of the trail, we found the bear in a tent! The children (and practitioners!) have really loved it.
We have some lovely new wooden toys at nursery and they have been helping us this term with our numbers and counting! As well as these, we have also been counting things and looking at numbers everywhere we can, around the nursery, out in the garden and with our parents while out and about! Numbers are fun 🙂
This term, as well as carrying on with lots of fun activities connected with ‘The Snail and the Whale’, we have also made mini pizzas. The children had been talking a lot about pizza so we to let them choose and cut their toppings and spread tomato to make their own snack. Yum!
We have welcomed the children back to nursery and have heard all about the time they spent over Christmas. The children all enjoyed watching the adaptation of ‘The Snail and the Whale’ by Julia Donaldon and Axel Scheffler on the television so we are going to spend some time this term enjoying this book with them.
