Oliver's Fruit Salad

What is your favourite fruit and why?

This week in Nursery we have read the story of Oliver's Fruit Salad by Vivian French. In this story Oliver talks about all of the lovely, fresh fruits that Grandpa grows in his garden. When he goes shopping with his mother they discover some more exotic fruits like pineapples that Grandpa cannot grow. We have been tasting lots of different fruits and talked about how to prepare them to make our own fruit salads. We have also been looking closely at a variety of fruits and creating some lovely still life pictures using pastels. The children have been developing their fine motor skills by using different tools to juice lemons and limes and extracting seeds from different fruits. We have also been talking about why fruit is good for us. For our Phonics learning we have been playing Silly Soup and thinking about rhyming words. In Maths we have been using play dough and five frames to think about the different ways to make 5.
