Twinkle Twinkle Little Star - Saplings - October 2018

(11 images)

We saw stars this week in nursery. It all started with Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on Monday. We’ve read some beautiful stories about stars and can’t decide whether Star in the jar or How to catch a star is our favourite. We’ve had fum learning a counting rhyme all about dancing stars to help us with our understanding of the number sequence. We’ve enjoyed making stars in the playdough, glitter, sticks, water and ice too. We’ve also looked at how the artist Vincent Van Gogh created stars in his picture Starry Night.

We found out about the change of season. We began by exploring the sensory garden. We collected some leaves and fruit to take back to nursery to help us find out even more using our senses of sight, hearing, smell, touch and taste.
