Week beginning 23rd June 2014
This term our theme is The Five Senses!
Communication and Language
The children have enjoyed playing an animal and home sounds detectiveâ€™s game. The children had to decide what the sound was and how or what the sound was made by. It was more tricky than it sounds without picture clues!
The children have been using their writing books to practice number formation. They have also enjoyed playing a listening game.

TheÂ nursery team J
This week the children have been using their sense of smell to smell a variety of foods and drinks, They have described what it smells like and what they think they are smelling.
We had lots of different ideas to what we thought we could smell.
“This smells like crisps” Cecily said after smelling onion.
“I don’t like onion, it is orrible” Emily S proclaimed!
What are your favourite food smells?
Thank you to all the parents who turned up this morning for our singing concert. It was a great turnout and we hope you all enjoyed it.
Emily said, “It was so so nice to sing to all the Mummy’s and Daddy’s.”
