What we've been doing in class
Chinese New Year
Take a look at the Chinese New Year activities that we have been doing in class this week.
We tried using chopsticks to eat noodles. They were very tricky to use! We also ate prawn crackers and sweet chilli dip.
During R.E. we learnt about how Mary and Joseph travelled on a donkey to Bethlehem. Baby Jesus was born there in a stable. Shepherds and 3 Kings came to visit him. Christmas Day is Jesus' birthday. We performed a very special Christmas Nativity for our families, telling the story and singing lots of Christmas songs. We all dressed up in special angel costumes.
We have had a wonderful time in Nursery leading up to Christmas with lots and lots of fun activities. Here are just a few of them. We made Snowman Christmas cards, we went to the post office to post letters to Father Christmas, he then came to visit us with a present, we made a Christmas bauble, had Christmas dinner, enjoyed a Christmas party, sang a special carol concert, decorated a Christmas tree with our own baubles, took turns to take the Posada box home, made a funny calendar to sell at the PTA fair, baked a Christmas tree biscuit, went to see Lyle Lyle Crocodile at the cinema, made a Shakin Stevens video and watched the pantomime A Riskmas Carol. Phew!!!!! We are so tired now.
This week we have been learning about the Festival of Diwali. We learnt that it is called the 'Festival of Lights' and so we made some diva lamps too. We also read about 'Holi' the Festival of Colour so we also had fun throwing powder paint into the air. This was very messy. We practised rangoli patterns, a stick dance and had mendhi patterns on our hands and a bindhi jewel on our forehead.

Nursery went on a walk to look for signs of autumn. We searched for conkers, pine cones, sticks and autumn leaves and collected these items in our own bags. We took them back to school and talked about the items that we had found and decided to use them to make pictures and collages. We talked about all the changes that happen in autumn.
