Sparkling bright for bonfire night

Today we had a fantastic time out in the rain celebrating bonfire night. We have been talking about the sounds the firework make and what they look like in the sky. Today the children had great excitement having their own sparklers. We also kept walk with jacket potatoes and hot chocolate perfect for an autumn day.

Look out for fireworks tonight and talk about what you can see and hear.

Festival of light

The children have been excitedly telling us about the fireworks they have been seeing in the sky as part of the festival of Diwali celebrations. In Nursery we have been learning about how people celebrate Diwali. We have been making firework pictures, mendi patterns, cards, counting divas, and playing in the dark tent.

Talk about how you celebrate at home any Why you celebrate.

Harvest time

This week we have been learning about harvest a special time when we say thank you for all the food we have to eat. We have been learning about the carrots being picked out of the ground and have made carrot soup.

We have been brining in food to give to the food bank too.

Talk about the food you like to eat at home.

How old are you now?

This week we have been learning about how we celebrate our birthday in Nursery. The children have been talking about how old they are and wether they are three or four. We have been enjoying making birthday cakes with the play dough and drawing one with the candles in.
