Living science in Nursery

Before the Easter break, Nursery were learning about growing plants and placed some beans in bags along with wet tissue around the classroom.  Some children chose to tape their bags to the windows, others under tables and some in the dark cupboard. Now we have returned from our break we have noticed that there have been changes in the bags.  Not all changes looked the same and we tried to think why? We noticed the bean in the dark cupboard, initially grew quickly but without light it has turned black. Some of the beans must have been too wet, because they have rotted. The best were the ones that were taped to the windows.

Nursery celebrate World Book Day

Nursery had a lovely morning celebrating World Book Day with an alien theme today.  We read nursery favourites: Aliens Love Underpants by Claire Freedman & Ben Cort, There’s An Alien in Your Book by Tom Fletcher and The Smeds and the Smoos by Julia Donaldson & Alex Scheffler.  The children drew their own aliens on bookmarks, designed alien headbands and created an alien with salt dough. #World Book Day @ClaireFreedman @TomFletcher @JuliaDonaldson

Spring arrives in Nursery

Nursery this term are observing the changes that happen in Spring.  We have been monitoring tulip bulbs growth daily and drawing and painting pictures of tulips. Today we compared the colours and shapes of daffodils to tulips and predicted what will happen to the daffodils when we add food colouring to the daffodils water. We will watch closely and see if we were right!

Forest School

The key worker children had an amazing opportunity to join forest school for the afternoon. They showed a real sense of school community as they worked together to build a natural fence. Each bubble had their own slot to forage for sticks and layer them one on top of the other. They showed great skills by weaving the sticks together to build up the fence. They showed amazing teamwork and have created a strong, sturdy fence on the border of forest school. Well done everyone.
It’s the end of a different half term and how best to end it but with a campfire! The children sat around a campfire in their bubbles, toasting Marshmallows and sipping hot chocolates. You could here a pin drop when Mrs Bone was telling them the traditional story ‘the boy who cried wolf’!
