Last week at the Nursery we had a very exciting visit from the Crossing Patrol officer. Mrs Pettit spoke to the children about her job as a Crossing Patrol officer, and some of the children tried on her uniform and got to hold the lollipop sign.
They asked questions to find out how she helps others cross the road before school. We linked this to learning how to cross the road safely.
The children made their own Lollipop signs which developed their writing, creative skills and understanding of shapes.
On Tuesday, the children in Little Birds Nursery also learned about how to use computers, ipads and technology safely as it was ‘Safer Internet Day’.
The children used the iPads to explore the paint program, with the practitioners nearby, at small group time.
We looked at the book ‘Smartie the Penguin’ which is a story for early years about internet safety.
For Enterprise week, the children were excited to make up their own TV adverts and shop signs. They then recorded their adverts on the iPads for our nursery friends to watch.
The children then spoke about what they would sell in their own shop at circle time, taking turns by passing a small world figure around one-by-one.
These activities helped the children to develop communication skills and an understanding of what happens in the world around them, particularly when visiting shops and towns.
To celebrate the end of term and the children’s achievements we dressed up as ‘People Who Help us’.
Logan remembered what he had learnt about Recycling at Nursery and he implemented it at home. He was very principled in supporting his family to care for the environment.
