We have been drawing self-portraits, learning about our similarities and differences. We have been reading ‘A quiet night in. We talked about us all being special and unique.

We have been taking about ourselves, our families and how we all start off as babies. We draw family pictures and matched the object to the baby. In maths we have been counting to 5.


Week 4

We have been learning about body parts, we sang the song head, shoulders, knees and toes. The children drew around one of their friends and then labelled the body parts correctly. We read the book ‘Eyes, Noes, Fingers and Toes’.


Week 5

We have been learning about the five senses. Sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell. We used our good listening ears to go on a listening walk around the nursery. We used our senses to play the xylophone. 


Week 6     

We have been talking about feelings and emotions. We read the story ‘Colour Monster’. We explored mixing colours and talked about how we can express different emotions. We talked about who we can talk to when we are feeling sad and know that we are not alone.


Week 7

We Read 'Handa's Surprise'and looked at all the different fruits you can get from a hot country.  We also read 'Farmer Duck' and look at some farm animals and the sounds they make.  We learnt about the different foods that can come from some animals and the food that comes from a farm.  We used our senses to try some food tasting.
