Who Am I?      Healthy Me.      Oliver’s Fruit Salad

In The Nest we have been focusing on how to stay healthy. First, we read our key text all about fruit. We then tried lots of fruit and vegetables. We took part in lots of activities such as packing a healthy and unhealthy lunchbox, sorted foods into healthy and unhealthy groups, took part in lots of exercise, practised cleaning teeth and washing hands and much more. We have also been learning to share, take turns and build friendships.

Who Am I?All About My EmotionsThe Colour Monster


This week in The Nest we have focused on understanding, recognising and managing our emotions. The children have taken part in lots of activities relating to our key text The Colour Monster story. We helped The Colour Monster sort out all his emotions into jars which were happiness, sadness, anger, fear, calm and loved. We have created colour monsters using our craft resources, sorted bears into coloured groups using tweezers to practise our fine motors skills, shared emotion stories together, decorated biscuits and much more!

Who Am I?All About MeAll Are Welcome


What a wonderful first week in The Nest we have had!
Our theme this week is All About Me. We started the week identifying our facial features and using the knowledge to paint a self portrait. We participated in some group activities that involved identifying similarities and differences between how we look and our interests. We completed some fine motor skills where we practiced holding a pencil correctly and threading hoops onto pipe cleaners.
