We are having an extra focus on our wellbeing this week. So far, we have read a book a day about our feelings, we have practised our Rainbow Breathing to make us feel calm, we went outside and made pictures on the pathway to make people smile and spread some happiness and we have practised some yoga too! The children at home have completed some fantastic wellbeing activities too.

In Nursery we have been looking at the artist Kandinsky. He painted circles that we're all different colours. We talked about colours that are our favourite. We used these colours to make our own circles that represent ourselves inspired by Kandinsky.

Our outdoor learning was very creative this morning. We put on our wellies and took the powder paints outside. Out there we discovered how to make new colours by mixing the powders together into the snow. We made marks to make pictures and coloured them in. We did lots of motor skill movements, lots of team work and lots of new discoveries were made through our play!

Today we've started Rainbow Month by reading Elmer. We have talked about how he is different and celebrated this. We liked the ending and how the other elephants dressed up to show their uniqueness too or the parade. Our follow up activity was to use the person outline and use colours and symbols that we feel represent us. We discovered that we are all different and that we really liked this! We said that even though people are all different we treat everyone with the same respect. We have placed our little mini mes on our Wonder Walls so that we always remember this.

We have been learning all about Autumn this week and looked closely at hibernation. We know this means tht some animals have a big sleep over Winter. We made playdoh hedgehogs, created a piece of music to help the animals get to sleep, created a home for a sleeping bear, counted acorns to feed the squirrels and learnt that extra blankets (leaves) will keep the hedgehogs warm when they hibernate.
