The children were so surprised when they walked into Nursery today to see that our room has been changed around!
Recently in Nursery, a lot of children have been creating their own dens and cosy areas using the crates or the pillows in the Reading Area. Through observations, the Nursery teachers therefore thought it would be a good idea to support the interests of the children and build them a den.
During busy time, the children had a fantastic time exploring the new area. They transported different objects from around the classroom into the new den. Throughout the day, some children then took some reading books to the new area and sat quietly reading and exploring their stories.
We look forward to continuing to observe the children using the new den area as a role play and quiet space, as well seeing what lovely learning opportunities it creates for them.
Today the children completed their Big Draws linked to what presents they got for Christmas. The children were encouraged to talk about their presents and what they looked like, before drawing a picture of them. Some children then attempted to label their pictures.
This morning the children enjoyed following instructions to create a potion. The children applied their knowledge of counting to ensure that the correct amount of each of the ingredients were added to the potion. They then observed in amazement what happened to the potion once all the ingredients were added.
