This week nursery have continued to conduct experiments. This time we have been predicting whether items from the classroom will sink or float if placed in water and talked about why. We’ve also investigated what will happen when you mix oil, salt, sugar, flour and food colouring to water.
This week nursery have been experimenting! We added different coloured food colouring to the water of our daffodils to see if they would change colour. We had to wait a long time to see any changes, but today we could see that the petals are changing colour. It’s not very easy to see, so we’ve had to use magnifying glasses to help us.
Nursery incorporated their daily run around the playground today with some mark making. When Mrs Biss stopped running, they drew circles on the floor or lines on the walls in chalk. They are getting their muscles ready for writing.
We have enjoyed a wonderful day of reading! From reading detective activities to performance reading in assembly, active reading sessions to shared reading with parents. Thank you to all the children for being so motivated and eager to share their love of reading. It has been a pleasure to visit each class today and share in the excitement. Remember that reading opens many doors and the readers of today…are the leaders of tomorrow.
The children in nursery celebrated Pancake Day today by making their own pancakes. They had lemon and sugar or syrup as toppings. A vote at the end of the day decided that syrup as a topping was their favourite!
The Nursery children have returned from half term to find the pirates from their favourite story, Pirates Love Underpants, have taken over their environment! The children have been making treasure maps, pirate faces and looked for hidden treasure. Head on over and find out more.
Welcome back to the new half term. We hope everyone had a great weeks break and squeezed in lots of reading ready for World Book Day.
