Our Topic this half term is 'Why do you love me so much?'
We will be talking lots about our feelings this half term, what makes us happy, sad etc. The children will be drawing on pictures of themselves, changing their faces by drawing on glasses, crazy hair styles etc. We had a lovely visit from a Mummy at the school and her beautiful baby girl, the children all thought about wonderful questions to ask about the baby, For example- what does the baby eat?
what does she like to play with?
We have had lots of fun exploring with the magnifying glasses looking at different natural materials, playing vets, looking after and dressing the dolls in the home corner.
We use Welsh lots in our Nursery and each session the children will take it in turns to be our Helpwr heddiw, this is where we will learn lots of questions, answers, songs and greetings.
During our Helpwr Heddiw sessions we have been learning how to greet our friends using 'Bore Da' and 'Prynhawn Da' We have also been using lots of Welsh and makaton during our snack time. Some of our words are:
Dyma - Here
Ga I?- Can I have?
Llaeth - Milk
Dwr - Water
Diolch- Thank you
Last week we starting to learn our numbers with the help from a brilliant learning tool called 'Ten Town'. It helps to make learning numbers fun, each number has a character, a story, song and rhyme to help the children remember the formation. Last week we learnt all about 'King One'- From his head to his toes
This week we are learning about 'Tommy Two' From his hands to his knees then straight across please.
This is already helping to engage the children with learning numbers and we have some lovely activities coming up.
We will be getting a bit messy this week as we use natural materials to paint Autumn patterns using leaves, pine cones and conkers.
