Nursery News Autumn term 2 week 2

It has been a very busy week in nursery!

This week, nursery children have been identifying rhyming words in the story ‘Oi Frog!’ by Kes Gray. They have acted out parts of the story and have used mark-making to represent their ideas. During project learning time, children have responded to the provocation “What’s inside a spiral?” and have studied different artists and then have selected different media to represent their ideas.
