Environmental Sounds

In both our PE lessons with Miss Gould and music lessons with Mrs Asbury we have been exploring different ways to move and 'travel' to different types of music.

This week we created a visual representation of those different ways of moving in the form of dance painting. We took off our socks and shoes and moved to some different types of music from fast to slow and of course - 'Baby Shark'. We finished the dance off with 'The Grand Old Duke of York', a current class favourite inspired by one particularly enthusiastic fan of the nursery rhyme.

Many laughs and moments of joy were shared and it was wonderful to see our older children advocating for the safety of their younger peers by holding their hands to keep them from slipping. What a lovely reflection of the love and compassion shared by the Nursery children. 

Music and the sound of instruments is one of the aspects of Stage 1 Phonics. This term the Nursery class have been exploring the first aspect - Environmental Sounds. Would you like to explore some environmental sounds at home?

We love BBC School Radio Stimulus Sounds. Check them out here https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03g64q5

Changing Seasons

As the weather starts to change, Nursery have been out investigating and observing the effects of the autumn season. 

On the field have been able to observe leaves changing colour from green to brown, spotted busy grey squirrels collecting food for the winter and have gathered a small collection of chestnuts (conkers) that have fallen from the trees. We have been able to count our conkers (17 in total) and order them from smallest to biggest. 

In the Nursery playground we have been able to spot many minibeasts such as snails, spiders, caterpillars, millipedes and a variety of green beetles. Magnifying glasses helped us to get a closer look. When we found a bug that we were unsure of, we were able to count their legs to see if it was a spider or a beetle and used our smart screen to look at different types of beetles.
