  • Learning about number with Numicon

    Published 08/10/22, by Andy Mari

    This week in Nursery we have continued to explore the Numicon shapes. Each morning we have been counting how many children are at Nursery and finding the correct Numicon to represent the number. 

    Alongside this we carefully followed a recipe to make Numicon biscuits. We pressed the shapes into the dough and counted the number of circles. 

    We baked the biscuits in the oven and talked about oven safety.

    They were delicious!

  • Road Safety in Nursery

    Published 12/03/22, by Andy Mari

    This week in Nursery we have been learning all about road safety. We began the week by reading a story about how to cross a road safely and learned that we must ‘stop, look both ways, listen and think.’ We have then been using our knowledge on crossing roads in role play and our different activities. In maths, we have been practising forming the numbers using cars and tracks, and we have been getting really creative and making marks using different tyre tracks.
