SEALS (Reception and Nursery)

In Nursery we are the Grey Seals. 
Grey seals love to swim and eat fish.  They have flippers so they can move through the water. They can dive very deep in the sea. 
In Reception we are the Leopard Seals. 
Leopard Seals have spots like the big cat they are named after. They are also really good hunters. Unfortunately they have predators who eat them such as whales and sharks. 
Have a look at our yearly plan to see what we plan to learn about throughout this year.
Autumn term 
We went on an Autumn walk. We found some beautiful different coloured leaves. 
We harvested our apples from the school garden and one of our class brought in some rhubarb they had grown. We made a delicious crumble and ate it with some yummy custard. 
We have been reading the book 'Dear Mother Goose'. She is great at solving the problems of the Nursery Rhyme characters but so are we....
We have been looking for numbers both in our school environment and also around the school. 
We have been reading the story of 'The Gigantic Turnip.'
We went outside to perform the story. 
We have been planting seeds and seeing how tall they grow. We are keeping a diary to measure their growth. 
Some of us planted peas, some planted peas and some planted butternut squash seeds. We wrote some labels so we could remember what we had planted. 
We have been using tens frames in Maths. 
Then, we cut up some vegetables to make vegetable soup. 
Winter term 
We had a great Early Years Christmas party with party games and special treats. 
We also walked through Alnwick to go to Barter books. We had a browse through the children's books and we were able to choose a book to take home. 
Then we had to have a hot chocolate before we set off back to school. 
Guess what! It has snowed! 
After sorting our wellington boots for size we put them on and went outside to explore and play.
