This week the children the children have been practising their scissor skills.  As part of our topic 'Under The Sea, we read the story 'Octopus Socktopus' by Nick Sharratt.  The children enjoyed exploring the rhymes and nonsense words in the book.  At the end of the week we decided to create our own octopuses.  The children snipped a fringe around the end of a kitchen roll inner tube to create the arms.  They chose their favourite colour to paint their octopu then added googly eyes and a smile.  You can see the finished octopuses in the nursery coat room.

This week the children learnt about Chinese New Year.  They watched video clips of dragon dances, heard the story of the race between the animals and created their own dragon heads.  The children used PVA glue and tissue paper to decorate a plastic cup before adding streamer to make the fore and googly eyes to finish it off.
