Budding Builders!

Wow! It is only the children’s third week in Nursery and we are extremely proud of all of them for adapting and settling into their new environment so well. The children are continuing to work on their independence skills and we are really pleased with the super progress we are seeing already. Keep up the hard work Nursery!

This week we have explored different types of buildings and noted the similarities and differences between them. The children transformed into architects and builders, and developed their fine and gross motor skills as they designed and built their own structures. We tested the strength of different materials and discussed the effectiveness of them, referring to the story of The Three Little Pigs and their homes made out of straw, wood and brick.

Some of our resilience skills were tested when the buildings did not hold, but the children learnt to persevere and try again, drawing on their reflection skills to think about what they could do differently next time to make their building stronger.

We also developed our mathematical skills as we practised using 1:1 correspondence to count how many bricks tall our buildings were. This encouraged the children to use vocabulary related to size and we practised using the terminology “tall” and “short” to describe the height of them, instead of “big” and “small”.

Wishing everyone a wonderful Mid-Autumn Festival! We look forward to sharing more exciting learning experiences with your children next week.
