Rabbits News October 2018

We have been very busy during the month of October; we started and finished our topic of ‘Real and Imaginary’, we had a few trips out of the nursery and we also celebrated Halloween.

Topic

We have completed our topic of ‘Real and Imaginary’ and enjoyed learning the differences between the two. We learned about fairytales and what things we liked and disliked about them. We learned about castles and what people used to wear in previous centuries.

During October we have been learning about the celebration of Halloween. In the middle of the month, we went on a trip to the Royal Botanic Gardens where we had a Halloween trail all around the grounds, collecting clues and our prize at the end! We learned about various plants and their names and we also some of wildlife which we found very interesting.

We stayed in the gardens for lunch and then headed to the maze where we spent our last hour, we love the maze and trying to get out!

We have continued to go on our weekly visits to Forest Schools and Victoria Manor care home.

Halloween

We enjoyed learning about Halloween and doing various craft activities and baking spooky cookies with our cook Caroline. We had our Halloween party and enjoyed dooking for apples, dressing up, face painting, spooky stories and movie time with popcorn! We enjoyed learning about Halloween and coming to nursery dressed up as our favourite super hero, villain or Halloween character, even some of our teachers dressed up too!

Now that the colder weather is beginning to creep in we have enjoyed opening our Butterfly Room at 4:30pm, which is a cosy room where we can do pre-school activities. We have ‘Ipad time’ where we enjoy playing educational games relating to our theme or topic and play circle games such as ‘Duck, Duck, Goose’, ‘Sandy girl/boy’ and many others.

November and December

After Halloween we will focus on our ‘Winter Wonderland’ themed play for December, getting many ideas for the children about what they would like to base it around.
