Settling in

Nursey have settled brilliantly into Thorp school life and have thoroughly enjoyed their first full week.

We have been reading “We’re Going On A Bear Hunt”, “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”, “Brown Bear, Brown Bear” and lots more. The children have been painting pictures from “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” that are now on the wall and look fabulous!

Our favourite rhymes so far are “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and “Five Little Monkeys Jumping On A Bed.”

Chinese New Year

This week we have been learning about Chinese New Year. We have completed lots of different activities and made Chinese lanterns. We have found the first letter of our name in Chinese and painted it with fine paintbrushes. We have also been writing Chinese numbers and mark making in red sand.

Rangoli

Nursery have found out about how Sikh and Hindu people prepare for Diwali through a video on cbeebies.

if you paste   http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/watch/lets-celebrate-diwali   into your internet browser you can watch it too!

One of this week’s activities in the setting is to carefully colour in a Rangoli pattern. They put these patterns on their front doorstep.

This is a great example of very thoughtful and careful colouring.
