The Three Little Pigs 

Here in the Nursery we have been making models of the brick house where the three little pigs sheltered safely from the wolf.

We spread PVA glue all over the surface of the box and then added our own coloured paper 'bricks' .

if the paper was too long we had to tear it to make it fit, and if it was too short, we had to find extra pieces to fit the space.

We then added a picture of the wolf coming down the chimney, and the three little pigs looking out of the window.

The children thought that the pigs looked very scared!


The Three Little Pigs 

The Nursery children gathered the sticks from around the garden to use to make a house of sticks.

Some of the children worked together to make real structures that they could get inside, and some make flat 2D shape pictures on the ground.


The Three Little Pigs 

The Nursery children have been working together to make the different houses, just like in our story.

They have negotiated, and worked alongside each other to share the bricks and make the house complete.

It was a bit frustrating when the 'wolf' kept coming along trying to blow it down!


Role Play 

The children have enjoyed acting out the Three Little Pigs story out in the garden with the role play masks.

They have remembered the repeated refrains of the story, and are using them in their play narrative.

Traditional Tales 

Issy's Nursery are continuing their learning theme with 'traditional tales' and we are now going to be sharing the story of 'The Three Little pigs'.

We will be thinking about the number 3, sets and groups of 3, we will be considering the texture of things, particularly natural and man made items.

We will also be building, constructing and making models, and looking at how we can join and fix things together.

I don't think we will be making Wolf Stew though!



As we have been thinking about celebrations this week, and we are going to miss Pancake day at Nursery, we decided to make our own pancakes for snack today.

We helped to mix the batter, watched amazed as Ruth tossed each pancake, and then chose a topping.

A choice of lemon juice and sugar, or syrup; even the grownups enjoyed tasting them too.

What will you have with your pancakes next week?


Chinese New Year 

To celebrate Chinese New Year the Nursery children have tried some Chinese food at snack time.

In the picture the children are eating noodles with a sweet and sour sauce.
We even tried using chopsticks!

Some of us found it a bit tricky using the chopsticks, but we persevered (or resorted to using a spoon!).



Tricky words 

Tricky story words

The Nursery children found that one of our stories had lots of new words in it.

We identified the words we didn't understand and set about finding out what they meant. To help us remember what they meant we added a picture clue. 


Goldilocks and the three bears 

Writing letters.

The Nursery children have thinking about how the bears would have felt finding their porridge eaten and their beds slept in; we also wondered how Goldilocks would have felt when she woke up to find the bears standing over her!

We have written some letters from Goldilocks and from Baby Bear. Goldilocks wanted to say sorry, and Baby Bear wanted a new friend.
