We have been enjoying the lovely warm weather and learning outdoors all week. The recent combination of rain and sun have enabled our vegetables to grow quickly and we have been applying our measuring skills to discover which plants are the tallest and shortest.
As we come to the end of a busy half term, we have been revising our phonic skills: rhyming; alliteration and blending and segmenting. We are developing our knowledge of which sounds (phonemes) various letters of the alphabet make (graphemes) and applying them to create our own short words. We are also enjoying practising letters using the precursive script and are getting used to starting each letter on the line.
Signs of new life are in abundance in our garden area and we have used this growth to practise maths skills and provide inspiration for some observational drawing. We particularly enjoyed having parents stay for our Busy Fingers Open Session this morning featuring a variety of maths activities, which developed and strengthened our fine motor skills at the same time!
Have a wonderful half term Nursery and stay safe in the sun!
