This term we have been 'settling in' and making friends in nursery, our older nursery children have been wonderful role models to help all of their new friends learn new rules and routines. During group times we have been singing lots of nursery rhymes and action rhymes along with plenty of familiar and well loved stories. Children have been practising their good sitting and listening during story times and are learning to take part in group activities. We have explored mark making with a variety of resources such as chalks, pens, paints, pencils and even mark making in sand and foam. We are encouraging our children to use their language skills and they have had lots of fun taking on roles in our Home corner and Bakery role play areas.
