Little Wrens are superstars!

We have settled into nursery life beautifully this week. We have used this week to settle into our rhythms and routines and have enjoyed lots of time exploring our environment. That doesn't mean that we haven't been doing lots of learning along the way!

To support our personal, social and emotional development, we have welcomed new friends and have been kind friends helping to show them our rhythms and routines and to support them to access resources in our environment. It has been lovely to observe the children helping each other and being aware of others individual needs – what wonderful role models you are!. We have also reinforced our Little Wrens rules and boundaries to ensure we are all happy at nursery. We have also shared the story, The Colour Monster by Anna Llenas and have explored feelings and emotions.

To enhance our communication and language development, we have enjoyed listening to stories and have been answering questions. We have also enjoyed singing our favourite nursery rhymes.

Within our physical development, we have been working on developing our independence skills, our focus has been to use a jug to pour our own drink at snack time and we have been working on hanging our own coats on our peg. I have loved your perseverance when tackling this. We have also enjoyed 'Dough Disco' and 'Squiggle' sessions.

We have enjoyed making marks, drawing pictures and writing our names as part of our literacy development. We have also started our phonics sessions. Our younger children have focused on singing nursery rhymes and our older children have been listening for initial sounds in words and have been developing their blending skills – impressive!

Counting, counting and more counting has been the focus of our mathematics session. We have enjoyed singing rhymes to support our counting to 10. We have also sang the song 'Five Little Ducks'. This activity allows us to show finger numbers to 5, develop our subitising skills and count back from an amount.

We have enjoyed bird watching to enhance our understanding of the world. We shared the story Rory the Garden Bird by Frances Rodgers and explored how we can attract more birds to our garden. We made some yummy treats for them to eat and next week we are going to make sure our outdoor environment is clear from litter and has fresh water for the birds. We are hoping that this will attract more birds to our school ready for us to take part on the RSPB big schools birdwatch.

In our free play, we have constructed with a variety of blocks, explored ice, painted, cooked up a storm in the kitchen, helped the colour monster to sort his feelings into colours, scooped and filled containers with sand, shared stories and so much more... Take a look in the photos.

What a busy week, I think we all deserved a well earned rest!

Next week we will begin our dinosaur adventure – exciting!

Have a super weekend Little Wrens
