The Colour Monster.

In River Severn class we have been learning about The Colour Monster. The Colour Monster helps us to recognise different emotions. We have talked about feeling happy,sad,angry,calm and a little bit mixed up!

Throughout the classroom we have had different activities to go alongside The Colour Monster and we have enjoyed using them all! We have used bricks, play dough and wooden spoons in our learning. We even got to listen to the story through our headphones!

On Thursday we had some of our parents come and visit to see how we learn and play.
River Severn class did a fantastic job of showing their parents around our classroom and some of them even made their own Colour Monster!

Thank you to everyone that came to see us. If you would like to share The Colour Monster story with your child, please click on the link:

We are learning how to be independent and look after our environment…

We have had such a fantastic first couple of weeks settling into the new nursery routine! We continue to learn the new rules and boundaries together and will be spending lots of time understanding ‘why’ the rules are important to keep nursery a fun and safe place to learn. We have been learning how to be independent by learning the ‘flip trick’ to put on our own coats and jackets, using our ‘Tommy thumb and peter pointer’ fingers to open our straw wrappers, filling up our own water bottles when they are empty, wiping up our own spills…

We have been learning how to climb safely on the Jungle Gym. The children are becoming very confident climbing up the equipment, we are learning together how to climb down independently. We are providing lots of reassurance and offering verbal instructions to enable the children to safely climb back down the same way that they came up.

We have developed lots of new skills while colour mixing: pumping our own paints, selecting our own paint pallets, paint brushes and water, identifying colours, making colours lighter and darker…

Well done River Severn Class, keep up the hard work! 😊
