We're Going On A Bear Hunt...
This week we have been reading the book, We’re going on a bear hunt’ by Michael Rosen. 
One of our activities this week involved playing hide and seek with the bears friends. We recieved a letter from the bear asking us to help him find his bear friends around school. The children were so good at working together to find the bears and used their ‘good looking eyes’ to find the sneaky bears hiding. 
We found all 12 bears! The children were very good sharing the bears, making sure that everybody had at least one. We then counted them together to ensure we had got them all. On the way back to our room we were very surprised to see that Mr Saddington's year 5/6 class was also looking at a bear picture, so we went in to had a closer look! 
The children were very sensible walking around school, listened well and enjoyed the challenge. Well done!
We have als had lots of fun creating our story maps of the book.
We recapped the story first then discussed the 6 places the family visited while looking for the bear. 
We then went to the cut and stick table and created our own story maps. 
We cut green paper for the grass, used shiny blue paper for the river, brown paint for the mud, leaves for the forest and cotton wool for the snow storm. 
The children all showed great stickability on the task and created master pieces, I think you’ll agree
This week in Nursery we have done lots of exciting things.
During our morning session we have been on listening walks where we walked around school, both inside and out and used our best listening ears to hear what noises there are around school.
We could hear lots of lessons going on inside, including a fun P.E lesson in the hall.  Then outside we could hear birds, scrunchy leaves, cars and the wind.
Do you like our big ears? They really helped our listening!
We also learnt lots about shapes this week during our group time.
We learnt the names of some 2D shapes and we talked about how we could identify them.  We also coloured in some shapes and even tried out hand at cutting them out.
Look how well we did!
As part of our Welly Wednesday afternoon, we went out to the trees and read the story of The Very Helpful Hedgehog.
We thought, as the weather is getting colder, it would be lovely to build some hedgehog houses so we collected leaves and sticks and made them into piles among the trees.
Don't they look cosy!
Macmillan Coffee Morning
We loved our Friday morning cakes!
Meeting the guinea pigs
We loved meeting the guinea pigs that live next door in Reception class. We learnt how to hold them and feed them and we are really enjoying having a turn at looking after them.
Outside Play
Lots of nursery are enjoying playing outside at the moment - it means they get to be as messy as they want!
