WB 11.2.19

This week in Nursery we focussed on ‘Dental Health Week’, thinking about how to take care of our teeth and why it is important.  Like every week in Nursery, we all brushed our teeth each day with Mrs Currie, and enjoyed completing lots of different work on teeth and how to keep them healthy. We enjoyed some of our grown-ups coming in for ‘Working Together Wednesdays’ and doing lots of different dental health activities in the hall. We liked like making crocodiles, decorating masks, creating a healthy packed lunch, using toothbrushes to clean off whiteboard marker and lots more! We have read ‘Smile, Crocodile, Smile’ and loved painting some of our own Clarabella Crocodiles.  Click here to see our photos.

This week in Nursery we celebrated ‘National Storytelling Week’ and read some of our favourite books. We invited our grown-ups in to Nursery to share some of our favourite stories with us every day too!   On Tuesday morning and Thursday afternoon we read ‘Shark in the Park’ and made our very own telescopes so we could go on a shark hunt. We Tweeted about our adventures and were very excited to find that Nick Sharratt, the author of the book, Tweeted us back and sent us a personalised poster!  On Wednesday we read ‘Don’t Put Your Finger in the Jelly, Nelly’ and made some wibbly wobbly jelly to eat ourselves – yum! We loved sharing lots of different books and had a go at telling some of the stories ourselves.  Click here to see our photos.

This week we have continued reading ‘What’s in the Witch’s Kitchen?’ and thought about what we might have in our own kitchen and drew pictures of our ideas. We have also been thinking hard about rhyming words and trying to think of words that rhyme within the story. On Wednesday it was ‘No Pens Wednesday’ so we took away all of our writing tools in Nursery and focused on developing our language and communication skills.
