What we’ve been doing…
On Tuesday 28th January Nursery and Reception were visited by a lady from Phunky Foods. We found out that we need to eat at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables everyday and that we need to eat the rainbow. This means that we need to eat a red, yellow, orange, green and blue/purple piece of fruit or vegetable everyday! The children then had the opportunity to use different fruit and veg to make a rice cake face. We were impressed with how the children were willing to try new fruit and vegetables and tell us which ones they liked and didn't like. Many of the children discovered new tastes they enjoyed and even the staff learned something new!
Visiting The Life Bus
On Wednesday 22nd January Nursery and Reception got to visit Harold the Giraffe on his Life Bus as part of the SCARF curriculum. We learned about the different parts of our body and then helped Harold to prepare for a sleepover at his grandparents house. We were impressed with the children's knowledge of the body and their confidence in sharing this with their friends.
Overgate Reindeer Run
Nursery and Reception have been busy doing outdoor learning. We have used sticks and conkers to create large pieces of collaborative art- work. The children used the sticks and conker cases for the spikes on the hedgehog as they thought they were spiky too! They used lots of language to describe the shape, size and texture of the conkers, conker shells and sticks.
The children have also enjoyed working together to devise their own obstacle course. They have worked well together to design it and then cheer each other on as they complete the challenges!
