Kipper’s Birthday Party!

The children in Fig class had lots of fun celebrating Kipper’s Birthday. We made paper chains to decorate the class, we wrote party invitations inviting Kipper’s friends to his birthday party, and we designed and made Kipper lovely birthday cards. We played lots of party games such as musical statues, having fun dancing and singing with Kipper.

Maths progress in Reception

The children in Fig (Reception) C​lass have been doing fantastic number work, we have been helping Kipper celebrate his birthday by counting candles and cakes and matching the correct quantity to the correct numeral​ . We have been using the unifix cubes to help us count and make different numbers. We have been learning how to use the ten frame in our number work, for example: finding different ways to make number 10, adding one more/one less.

Investigations!

Magnets

In Nursery we have been learning all about magnets, Some of the children were able to recognise different objects that the magnet would not stick to such as paper and wood. We then tested our magnets to see if they would work in the sand and the water.

Ice

We have been talking about the different seasons and beginning to learn all about winter. The children are really enjoying investigating with Ice, particularly when we placed the water in the freezer and made predictions as to what might happen next. We have been using our senses to observe and touch the ice and talk about the changes that have taken place.

The Nursery Tea Party!

The Nursery have been very busy planning their own Tea Party!

We decided to make our own sandwiches for the party, we wrote our own shopping list and went on a trip to the local shops to buy the items we needed. We were very excited to pay the cashier at the till using real money. After our trip, we all made our own sandwiches to eat together at the Tea Party!

On the DT table we have been making our own grass collages by snipping paper. We also added bridges to our collages with lollipop sticks and finally added the river with blue paper.

Handa’s Surprise

In Reception we started our new topic, ‘Food’. We have been learning all about the story ‘Handa’s Surprise’.

We have been labelling and describing the different animals and fruits in the story using our fantastic writing skills. We even counted how many fruits Handa had in her basket finding one more and one less.  We have been very busy  getting creative, we have made our own books, necklaces, colourful collages and paintings all which have been inspired by the story  . We used different materials to build a house for Handa in the outdoor play, and used the puppets and props to act out the story. With exposure to the wonderful exotic fruit Handa had in her basket it inspired discussions about healthy food and lifestyles. The children enjoyed making and eating fruit salad.

Outdoor Learning in the Nursery

We have been learning all about the story ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’.

We have been busy making homes for the animals using the crates and wooden blocks and we even made our own Zoo!.

We talked about the different animals that we could see and really enjoyed using tickets to gain entry into the zoo.

We have been working really hard counting all of the different animals and looking closely at the different patterns such as ‘Spotty and Stripy’, some of the children used the moulds to create their own patterns in the sand.
