Chinese New Year Celebrations - Over the last two days, we have been exploring Chinese New Year through a variety of different resources and activities. The children have enjoyed making their own Chinese tea using an authentic tea set, they have made and eaten some Chinese food, dressed up in traditional costumes, made dragon masks, learnt how to write numbers and letters, manipulated chopsticks to pick up different sized objects and had access to a suitcase filled with authentic resources all the way from China! We have also listened to Chinese music, watched live celebrations and learnt about the story of the great race which teaches the children about the Chinese Zodiac Calendar. What an amazing two days we have had.

Bee-Bot Fun! Today the children asked if they could make a 'map of roads' for the bee-bots. Several children used a large roll of paper to draw roads for the robots to travel along. They talked about road signs and roundabouts. We will enhance this idea over the next week and provide the children with pictures and materials to develop their ideas.

Nursery - There's SNOW! First thing this morning, we wrapped up warm and ventured into the cold to explore the snow and frost. We had a great time collecting snow, looking at footprints (ours and other animals), making marks in the snow and looking closely at frosty spider's webs. One of our inquisitive little explorers brought some snow in to the classroom and we observed and monitored how long it took to melt. We tried to freeze the water again, in the freezer..... We will have to wait until tomorrow for the results.

Snow Day - Today we had lots of fun in the snow. We explored many different concepts and used our imaginations to make snowmen, snow castles, snow foxes and much more. We compared sizes of snowballs, measured the heights of them, used sticks and other loose parts to make pictures and patterns, made a cake shop and played pirates in an ocean of snow! We spent an hour playing outside and were all ready to get back inside to get warm again.

Nursery - We have been learning all about shapes this week. We have created pictures using different shapes, we have been on a shape hunt around our classroom and the outdoors and we have tried lots of foods which are shapes we recognise (like circular crumpets and square crackers..... Mrs Rice's favourite was the circle pancakes, yummy).

Nursery - Winnie the Pooh Day - We celebrated Winnie the Pooh day by sharing stories about Winnie the Pooh, colouring in pictures, painting masks and tasting honey (Mmm....). We all wore Red and Yellow too. Don't we look fantastic!

Voting for books - in our reception classes, we develop a love of books through reading and exploring stories with the children. In addition to having a book focus each week we have a daily book voting system in place, where the children vote each morning for the story they want to hear at the end of the day. It's a wonderful way of encouraging the children to appreciate how special reading is. It gives the children ownership and opens up discussions about why they may have chosen a specific book. This week our favourite winning book was a 'shine a light' book where you had to shine a torch through the pages to reveal the hidden animals in their winter habitats. Following the story, the children took the book into the provision with a torch and black blanket and enjoyed reading it in the dark!

Exploring weight and capacity! The children have been engaged and developed many different skills through this provocation! We have enhanced it this week by adding different materials and recorded the children using lots of mathematical language in their play.

Outdoor activities - At Rosewood the children have access to the outdoor provision throughout the day. The areas of leaning and opportunities lend themselves to the great outdoors and we take ideas from children's interests, next steps and needs.

Nursery - NOT a stick!!!! We read the story 'NOT A STICK' to get our imaginations flowing. We turned our sticks in to paint brushes, microphones, fishing rods, dogs, snowmen arms and much, much more. We even use sticks in our maths by comparing sizes, counting and making shapes.

Self Serve Painting Station - The children have shown an interest in colour mixing and so we have created a self-serve painting area. The children are able to independently select the colours they wish to use and can follow the step by step instructions to mix their desired colours. We are encouraging the children to wash their own tools and palettes afterwards.

Nursery - We're going on a BEAR hunt! We have had lots of fun this week, exploring different media, materials, techniques and mark making opportunities. We learnt the story and went on our own REAL LIFE BEAR HUNT. Luckily, the only bear we found was a teddy bear.

Nursery - HAPPY NEW YEAR! Welcome back to all of our lovely children and an even bigger welcome to all of our new children!

MissWright has left us for the year whilst she enjoys maternity leave with her 2 boys. We wish her all the best and we can't wait for her to visit us with her new baby when he has been born!

Mrs Rice will be our teacher until Christmas (she is extremely excited to join us)!

 

Gruffalo mask making - The children have been acting out the Gruffalo story and made their own masks. We had a visit off the Mouse from the book and the children have been asked to help the mouse family by making them a warm house for the cold winter months! The children were captivated by the Mouse visit and asked lots of interesting questions.

RF - Following our Gruffalo story focus, the children voted for their favourite recipe! They had a choice of owl ice-cream, Gruffalo crumble, roasted fox and mouse sandwich. The winning recipe was Owl ice-cream and the children thoroughly enjoyed making them! Afterwards, we completed a review sheet and the children talked about whether they liked or disliked the taste.

The children enjoyed their Gruffalo hunt in the deep, dark woods!

We have been reading the story - The Gruffalo. The children have been designing their own meals to be served in our Gruffalo Café. We looked at different meals that could be found in the deep, dark woods and voted on which meal we could make in school. The most popular choice was toadstool pizzas.

Stick Man - This is a fantastic story and is Mrs Flynn's favourite children's book. We explored the story, wrote our own versions, made stick families, visited the forest to find the family tree, collected, measured and compared sticks and used our imagination to use sticks for lots of different things. Take a look at the photographs of our children having fun through the story and characters!

Halloween in RF - provision and activities

Autumn walk in the woodland - the children explored the woodland area to find signs of the season. The leaves had fallen off the trees, we found lots of acorns on the ground and a few hidden minibeasts sheltered under logs! We collected a basket full of sticks, leaves, moss and acorns to use in the classroom.
