What a wonderful visit to ‘Seven Stories’!
Making art work which represents what makes us feel happy…making homes for Elmer’s friends…listening to Elmer stories and exploring the Elmer expedition!
The children have been working so hard this term! They have made lots of props for their story and are able to recite it! Please try it with your children at home.. They might surprise you!
Here’s your magic ticket, it can take you anywhere…The whistle’s blowing, quick! Jump aboard…
Oh we’re on the train again, speeding down the rails again, quickly, quickly down the track, clickety, clickety, clack. Faster and faster, faster we go then suddenly we’re slow…
Station 1: Oh we’re in the jungle what a place to be, there’s so much to do and so much to see. Look at all the monkeys hiding in the trees. Shall we play hide and seek? Yes Please!
Station 2: Oh, we’re underwater! What a place to be. There’s so much to do and so much to see. Let’s dive down as deep as we can go, and find all the treasures hidden below!
Station 3: Oh, we’re in outer space! What a place to be. There’s so much to do and so much to see. What a planet! What bright stars! So many aliens live on Mars!
Station 4: Oh, we’re in a magic wood! What a place to be. There’s so much to do and so much to see. What kind of fruit is growing on that tree? Let’s climb up so we can see!
Station 5: Oh we’re in a land of cakes! What a place to be. There’s so much to do and so much to see. Let’s pick something for a treat. I’d like a chocolate egg to eat!
We’re coming to a station. Look! it’s somewhere new. It’s the final destination. Where has your magic ticket taken you?
So far this week we have been exploring, sorting and finding out about lots of different shapes.
We have been continuing our project ‘What is the best job in the world?’ We found out about the role of the post man or lady and read the story ‘The Jolly Postman’. It was lots of fun reading all of the different letters and postcards! The jolly postman also sent Nursery a letter… the note said that he needed our help to find different shapes so that he had examples of what the shapes might look like in order to sort his parcels. We went on a shape hunt around school to find examples of different shapes, we were very good inspectors!
We have arrived at our final station…Cake land! We have learnt all about the role of a baker, a chef and a cook!
As part of red nose day we decorated our own cakes and made our own bakers hats!
We also had the opportunity to visit our school cook who welcomed us into her kitchen. We were able to find out about what equipment she uses, what clothing she needs to wear and how she cooks and cleans. We were even able to butter our own bread buns, they were very tasty!
What is the best job in the world… being a gardener! We have been learning all about gardens, plants, growth in Spring and how to take care of plants.
We enjoyed a visit from Mrs. Parker who told us all about her allotment, including the plants she grows, how she looks after them and the equipment she uses.
We also read the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. We listened to the story, sequenced the story to make zig zag books and acted as the characters! We also planted our own beans and they are now starting to grow!
Today Nursery began to read the text ‘Mr. Wolf’s Pancakes’. When we opened the second page an envelope fell out! It was addressed to Nursery at our school. We opened it and inside was a letter from Mr. Wolf! He said he was so excited to celebrate Shrove Tuesday and eat lots of pancakes, however he had forgotten how to make them and needed our help! The children sequenced how to make a pancake and we sent the instructions back to Mr. Wolf via email. The children were relieved that Mr. Wolf would be full after the pancakes rather than his appetite rising!
The children also enjoyed lots of pancake themed activities in the classroom and tasting pancakes with different toppings!
