This is what the nursery children have been playing with, learning about and exploring in the following areas:

Literacy: As part of Scottish week we have explored Scottish poet Robert Burns and a variety of Scottish songs, poems and stories. We have learned a variety of Scottish words and we’ve completed the My first poem, developing our communication skills.

Maths/Stem: We have explored positional language, developing our communication skills. We made our own map detailing directions around the map, we then used magnets to navigate around our maps. We listened to the story Going on a Bear Hunt, discovering and learning positional language further. We used actions poems “Bean bag” to increase our knowledge of positional language in a creative way.

Creative: We have explored Scottish week through a range of creative and sensory experiences, including playdough, Scottish collage, flag making and haggis, needs and tatties sensory tray.

Outdoors: During Scottish week we have developed our physical skills by participating in our own Highland games, tug of war, throwing the bean bags and racing wheels.

Construction/Small world:  During Scottish week we have explored castles, we created castle structures and named parts of the castle. We created our own castles using a variety of bricks.

Snack: In the snack area this week we spoke about different Scottish foods to connect with Robert Burns Day.
We tried flavoured Scottish spring water and shortbread, whilst discussing how it tasted.

Don’t forget to check your child’s learning journals for some more insights into their learning in nursery.

Have a lovely weekend
