The Nursery children have been preparing for Christmas by designing a Christmas tree and wrapping up presents. Plenty of shape knowledge was needed. We cut out the triangles for the tree. The children were asked about the shapes of the presents.
Work has also started on displaying a Christmas collage in class. The children have been using images of snow to come up with some imaginative ideas. These have been presented together as part of a class display.
Elsewhere in the Nursery and we are continuing with our class baby topic. The children have been reading different books to help to understand a little more about how we care for babies. Current class favourites are Cave Baby, Mog and the Baby and Jesus’ Christmas Party.
Finally we are all looking forward to meeting out new class friends who will be joining the Nursery in the New Year. The first few weeks of the spring term will be spent getting to know our new friends and to make them feel welcome.
