This week we have been exploring love! This is the focus of our schools definition of spirituality. We have all collaged a heart shape using different media and materials. We then drew a picture of someone we love and talked about why! We have read some books all about love and thought about how we know we are loved.
We had an exciting day today in nursery with new climbing equipment being installed! We have 2 tunnels, climbing walls and even a net to climb across! Next week they will come to add a soft surface underneath so we can jump off safely & then we can play on it… we were all very excited to see the men working hard to cement it down and we are looking forward to playing on it soon! 🙂
Today we had some visitors who drew all over our grass! I wonder what they are doing? I wonder if you can guess why they have left these marks in our garden? Watch this space for some more updates next week!
Our focus question this term is… Who are the famous animals in my book? This week we have started exploring the book Dear Zoo by reading it and discussing what we already know about the animals in the story. We know a lot already! Some of our ideas included: Frogs are green and hop, snakes hiss, lions have 4 legs and roar, camels have water in their humps and dogs are fluffy! We have also started painting and collaging the animals, playing with our small world zoo and moving our bodies like the different animals.
We started this term focusing on the season of Winter. It was pretty chilly at Nursery and we explored the frost and ice in the garden while the weather was cold!
Inside we put some of our toys in pots of water and talked about what would happen to the water when we left it overnight in the freezer. Lots of amazing wow words were explored including freeze, colder, icy, frosty and chilly!
When we checked out pots they were totally frozen! We then had to help our toys escape and had so much fun trying to break the ice to get them out! We had so much fun we repeated the activity the next day too… such amazing scientific exploration! 🙂
Thank you to the wonderful Friends of St Michael’s for our fabulous Christmas Books! 🎄

This week we have celebrated 19 birthdays in Froglets with a double party! We had cake, played party games, found treasure in the garden and decorated cards for our friends. We even had party bags to take home! Happy birthday to you all 🎂
This week we have decorated our Christmas tree and have started making our Christmas cards. We are adding a cotton wool ball to our Santa’s beard and have candy canes in our stocking advent calendar! I wonder who’s turn it is to have theirs today? Merry Christmas!
This week we conclude our ‘Wow’ topic on colour. Each child has completed a mini collage of their favourite colour and we have joined these together to celebrate which colours make us feel happy! We hope they make you feel happy to 😀
