The afternoon nursery class have been very busy today making Rabbit and Guinea Pig faces using paper plates. The children first of all used the internet to research what rabbits and guinea pigs looked like before choosing from a wide range of collage materials to create their own.
Today the nursery children chose to play the ladybird number board game. They were developing their number recognition, counting, one to one correspondence using a variety of objects.
The nursery children have been developing their understanding of weight. They were playing with the scales and weighing pets and other animals. They were estimating what they thought might be heavier and lighter and then using the scales to see which were the heaviest and lightest.
The nursery children have been enjoying sharing imaginative pet stories. They have been working on using descriptive language and developing their story telling skills.
