Good morning! I hope you all had lots of fun in the snow yesterday. Thank you for sending your snowman photos, did you like the one I made with my son? Take a look on the padlet if you haven't seen it yet.
Yesterday I did an experiment with the snow, you can find out all about it by watching my video, the link is below.
You may want to have a go at doing your own experiment with snow and ice, here are some examples of what you could do before it all melts away.
Good morning children! I hope you had a good weekend in the snow. Did you make a snowman? or go out on a sledge? I'd love to see the photos, I'll put mine on the padlet for you to see.
As it is snowing and freezing cold, I thought we could do some Winter activities today.
Please watch my video in the video resource centre and have a go at some of the Winter activities.
You might want to have a go at some Winter crafts today, here are some ideas.
Don't forget to get outside and enjoy the snow too, build a snowman, have a snowball fight. Below are some other things that you can do in the snow for ideas.
Painting the snow
You can either bring some snow inside or take your paints outside. This works just as well using food colouring mixed in water too!
It is lots of fun to lay down in the snow and move your arms and legs to make a snow angel.
If you blow bubbles in the cold weather it can freeze. If you don't have bubble mixture you can use washing up liquid mixed with water. You can also make your own bubble wands using pipe cleaners.
Today I would like you to listen to the story 'Robin's winter song' on the bbc iplayer
It is a lovely story about the Winter season and the changes that take place.

Today, I would like you to watch the video 'Monsters not allowed' in the video resource centre. I will read a story to you about a monster who goes to school, but the Deputy Headteacher sends him away. The children made 'Missing monster' posters.

Good morning children. Did you see the snow yesterday? I was in school and couldn't believe how quickly it was falling down, covering the playground. Did anybody make a snowman? or play in the snow? I'd love to see a photo.
Yesterday I asked you to watch 'The Gruffalo' or read the book with a grown up. I hope you liked it, it is one of my favourite stories. Today, I'd like you to watch the video in the video resource centre of this website, in the Nursery remote learning section.
We will be labelling the Gruffalo today. I have attached the document for you to print out at home to label if you wish.
For story time today, you can watch the story 'The colour monster'.
Good morning Nursery! I hope you are all keeping safe and well. We will be learning at home again for a while, I know that it is a scary and worrying time for lots of children and grown ups. If you are worried about anything, tell a grown up how you are feeling. We all feel worried or scared at times and it is absolutely fine to feel that way, but it is soo important to talk about your worries.
Here is a nice story about feeling worried, why not watch it with your grown up and talk about the things that make you feel worried.
Our new topic is called 'Monsters' we will be reading lots of stories about different monsters, creating our own monsters in lots of different ways and using Monsters to complete maths and writing tasks.
Today I'd like you to watch 'The Gruffalo' with a grown up or read the book, if you have it. Once you have watched or read the story, can you tell your grown up what happened? who the characters were, where the story was set (the place) and if you enjoyed the story and why.
Was the Gruffalo scary? friendly? funny? fierce? Can you tell a grown up what you thought about him and if you think the Gruffalo is a monster.
I would love to see your Gruffalo drawings too, please send a photo of it to the Nursery email or upload to the class padlet.
Here is the link to watch the Gruffalo:
