Why not sing our new song to learn 'on, in, under, by'.

Nursery are unhappy with Evil Pea's antics.
First he trapped and wrapped the fruit, then he drew on the fruit and vegetables.
Their faces showed they weren't happy!

Well spotted Isabelle!

We looked all over the classroom and eventually found him!
Then he bounced away again! Will we ever catch him!

Setting traps!

Rebekah had a great idea...
"If he comes back in through the window, I will catch him in this basket. I'll put a cushion on top. He won't escape then!"

Autumn 1 - Week beginning 16.9.19: Nursry have begun to explore their new topic and have been thinking about what makes them unique. We looked at our faces and drew what we could see! We then made some yummy biscuits to look like us!

Body Parts Song for Kids - This is ME! by ELF Learning - ELF Kids Videos

Autumn 1 - Week beginning 23.9.19: Nursery have explored their body shapes using Tap-A-Shape. We learned that we have one head, one body, two arms, two hands, two legs and two feet. We even know that we have five digits on each hand and each foot! We remembered where to place them to build ourselves using the pieces. We took care to use the hammers and pins carefully.
