Chocolate Heaven!

The Nurture children have been longing to bake a chocolate cake for quite some time, so when one of the group told us it was his birthday the next day, we had the perfect excuse to roll up our sleeves, put our aprons on and get baking!

While we are baking we are practising lots of the skills we are learning in our Nurture group, such as sharing, taking turns, listening, following instructions, paying attention to detail, being careful, accepting disappointments, helping each other, patience, as well as talking, laughing, bonding and generally having a jolly enjoyable time! image

Pizza for Snack time!

All the nurture children adore Pizza, so we decided to make our own for snack time. Everyone talked about their favourite topping and remembered a time when they had enjoyed eating pizza with family or friends. We then had a rather passionate discussion about which toppings we should have on our nurture pizza. Finally we agreed on pepperoni and red pepper! Great practise of our negotiating skills!

As we made the pizza the children chanted out loud each and every step of the process (talk for writing) and by end everyone couldl tell their friend exactly how to make pizza! All ready for writing down the recipe instructions … we wouldn’t want to forget how to make such a yummy treat!IMG_1993

Chinese New Year

This week we have been learning about Chinese New Year which starts on 27th January. We learnt the story about the origins of the Chinese New Year and found out that  2017 is the Year of The Rooster!  We each chose our favourite animal from the story and wrote about the part they play. We then enjoyed experiencing some of the Chinese customs that are celebrated at this time. Have a look to see what we got up to!img_1912

We made a delicious Chinese Stir-fry!
