The children throughout the nursery enjoyed a fun filled day for Halloween, including dressing up in a range of costumes from pumpkins to skeletons, peter rabbit, cats and many more. They engaged in activities including pumpkin scooping, jelly play, baking and Halloween themed artwork.
The Preschool Unit
The Preschool unit have been talking about the different types of weather and used paint to create different weather scenes including rain, sun and snow. They have also been experimenting with mixing different things together and creating their own science experiments including making an erupting volcano in the garden.
This week they are creating colourful pictures for Bonfire Night and Diwali and are beginning to talk about their next topic of culture and values. Within this they will be creating their own class rules and having lots of discussions around being kind to each other.
Towards the end of November the children in the Preschool unit will be focusing on occupations and will be having a visit from a Policeman and a Nurse. If any parents would like to come into the nursery to talk to the children about their job role please speak to a member of the Preschool unit.
The Toddler Unit
The Toddler unit have been creating colourful firework pictures by printing using paint and straws. They have also created a beautiful display for Remembrance day where they have made individual poppies using straws, red material and printing with red paint. They are also going to be creating some colourful biscuits to celebrate Diwali.
The Flower Kingdom
The Flower Kingdom would like to welcome the new children who have recently joined the nursery and are settling really well. They have also been getting messy creating some beautiful Autumn and Remembrance day artwork.
