Building relationships in Nursery is an important aspect of our day. Our children learn how to respect, understand the needs of others, control their emotions, build empathy and develop positive social interactions.
Tales Toolkit - A Mark Making Story
This week we created a special Tales Toolkit story where the children were encouraged to mark make in response to what was happening in the story. The children use their felt tips to show the big jumps or little jumps the frog was making. They made marks to show him dancing at the party. They drew circles that got bigger and bigger just like our balloon until it went ....bang!
We have introduced 'Tales Toolkit' in both N2 and N3. It is a fabulous resource which supports the children in creating their own stories. We used our 4 big bags to introduce the children to the 'Character', 'Setting', 'Problem' and 'Solution'. As you can see from our photographs the stories are lots of fun! There are songs, actions, silly voices and exciting resources to engage and motivate the children.
We have continued learning about Road Safety and have made marks with the cars to create road marking. We talked about holding hands to cross the road and made a path outside in our garden. We had a green man light and walked across safely. We drove our bikes along the road which we made and waited when we saw a red light and set off again when we saw a green light.
The children have had a lovely week in Nursery - learning all about how to care for our ducklings, joining in with music sessions, problem solving and early maths skills, mark making, building, role play, using tools, Forest School sessions and having lots of fun.
What a busy fun filled half term we have had. We have been reading lots of different stories and learning new words, building, counting and sorting shapes, being creative in many ways and developing independence and social skills.
What a fabulous half term we have had and so much learning!
This week the children have enjoyed painting on tin foil, listened to the story of 'Spot the Dog' and used props to recreate some of the events, looked at different shapes and explored making different marks.
Welcome back to our Nursery 2 children who have had a lovely week.
They have enjoyed playing outside, climbing, playing with the dough, role play, looking at books, making marks and making new friends.
