Today in our Forest School, we ‘experienced it’ by going on a bug hunt. We had great fun exploring in the garden and looking for minibeasts. We used magnifying glasses to look closely at all the different minibeasts and name them. We also talked about where they lived and what they looked like. Why don’t you ‘use it’ and have a look at home to see if you can find any minibeasts?
Last week we came into Nursery to find someone or something had left footprints on our floor. We looked at the clues and thought about what it could have been. It had big feet and sharp claws and it had brought leaves and branches through the nursery too. After some careful thought, we decided that it could have been a Gruffalo!
We have had lots of fun with our Gruffalo activities this week and last.
Some of the activities included;
- retelling the story in the tuff tray and with the story stones
- using our maths skills to order by size and recognise digits to 5
- role playing in the Gruffalo Café and home corner
- exploring habitats and animal homes
- creating natural art inspired by the Gruffalo
- heading out on a Gruffalo hunt in the garden
- making play-dough Gruffalos
- using shapes to make Gruffalo faces
Take a look at the photos to see what else we have been up to.

Today in Nursery we have been thinking about all of the jobs that we can help with around the home. We have been sweeping, vacuuming, washing dishes and setting the table. I hope the children are going to put their skills to good use at home!
Today we had some very special visitors in Nursery. The chicks, which hatched last week in our reception class, came to see us. We all held them and talked about what they felt like. We could hear them making chirping noises too. The children were all very sensible. They understood that we had to be gentle and quiet with the chicks, to keep them safe and make sure we didn’t scare them.
