Play dough fun!

The Nursery children have been  learning to follow instructions using a  simple recipe to make play dough. They were shown how to measure flour, salt, water, and oil using simple measurements. The children were then keen to add colouring and even cinnamon to add a wonderful smell to the dough.  They  found that it became more difficult to stir as the mixture thickened and began to bind together. The children  then used different tools to roll, squeeze, squash, pinch, twist and poke the dough. It was such fun we did it all again! 



On Monday, Ami Worrell visited our school. Ami is deaf and the children were given the opportunity to talk to Ami and her interpreter. Ami explained to our Nursery and Reception classes that some people with hearing loss use sign language to communicate. She taught the children some greetings using British Sign Language (BSL). Ami explored the nursery rhyme ‘Humpty Dumpty’ with the children, using pictures, hand signals, body language and facial expressions. The children enjoyed meeting Ami and were interested in learning some sign language.

We wish you all a very half term break,

Amanda Corcoran and the Nursery team
