We also enjoyed working collaboratively and developing other skills such as using scissors successfully. Watch out for our stories next.
Nursery went on a flight today. We took our passports to the waiting area at the airport.
We then boarded our flight first watching the safety information.
We re-visited Squiggle this week finishing with making smaller marks on paper linking the shapes made to different letters. Using circles we can make an ‘O’. The children then said ‘with my up and down lines I can make an ‘M’ and ‘put two lines together with another across the middle is a ‘H’ as in Harry Potter’.
We then make marks on paper – some children prefer to lie on their tummies to make marks.
We looked at making lines, circles and spirals. Mark making can be done with chalks, pens, sticks in sand, fingers in shaving foam.
Children returned to the provision and continued to explore large scale mark making outside.
We explored both the departures and arrivals area.
More photos to follow later.
It has been good to welcome back our families and hear all about your holidays. Our new starters are settling in well and we have more children starting this week. All have engaged well with our theme of transport and journeys.
We have also been engaging in a variety of activities from mark making to role play, play dough to small world activities.
