A busy morning at nursery today! Chopping chard, washing animals and making music!
The children were straight back in with creating and crafting!
Great vocabulary describing the worms and gentle, caring fingers, carefully holding the worms
The children enjoyed cutting, colouring and watching as the water et the felt pen colouring and merged the colours together 28/3/22
We had great fun with Pancakes on Tuesday! The children had pancakes at snack time and then we had races, tossing the pancakes and running. Much to the children’s delight, the staff even had a go!
One of our brilliant staff spent her half term making this excellent, fun, music board!
What a pleasure to watch the dexterity and creativity of children sewing! 8/2/22
One of our families kindly lent us some of their Lunar New Year decorations and told us about the festivitiWe talked about when the grown ups clean the house and make everything look beautiful, lovely food including fruit and chocolate, new clothes. The children thank the adults and wish them a healthy, prosperous and happy New Year and they are rewarded with money in the beautiful red and gold envelopes.
Today we set off for a walk round the village. We heard the woodpecker tapping, the teachers saw a fox, lots of bird boxes, ducks, geese and talked all about the finger post on the green 24/1/22
This term Jo has been working on ‘Curious Play’ Today the children made some excellent pictures in the frames 20/1/22
As part of the birthday celebrations for the shop, we were invited over for a ‘Babychino’! We went in small groups and took with us some salt dough decorations to make and then hung them on the Christmas tree
We have been looking at the Autumn leaves recently and found some beautiful red ones. We went and said ‘hello’ to our elm tree and saw that all the leaves had been shed, ready for the winter.
Talking about tooth brushing today! We had made some large plaster teeth that the children cleaned with tooth brushes. It led to all sorts of conversations !
Hopefully not the last of the Autumn sun, but how lovely to be enjoying building carefully whilst lying down on a mat outside!
Block play is such a great activity! So much physical and imaginary scope…..
The music session today was such fun as you can tell by these happy faces! New songs, lots of dancing and movement and great participation!
The little garden has been very successful! The children have had quite a few beans at snack time and have really enjoyed planting and watching everything growing. We have enjoyed seeing the mini beasts enjoying it too! Worms, spiders, bees and even wasps! The sweet peas have smelt lovely too! We are going to dry the sunflower head and plant the seeds in the spring
The first little frog was sitting on a stone this morning! The children were very patient having waited for the frogspawn to hatch and the tadpoles to develop. It was lovely to see their faces!
We are lucky enough to be given a small flower bed by our hall. One of our Mum’s, Katie, came and helped prepare the bed ready for us to plant up. There were lots of worms and creepy crawlies for the children to see
As part of our ‘Focus children’ topic this week we were looking at flowers. We talked about tree flowers, vegetable flowers and flowers from the garden. Children looked closely at how different all the flowers were.
We had a special treat today when one of our families brought a bee hive (minus the bees!) down to give us a talk all about bees. We saw the outfits that bee keepers wear and one of the boys demonstrated the ‘puffer’ to make the bees sleepyWe heard all about their 2 tummies, 5 eyes and their wiggle dance. The children saw the comb and then we were treated to spoonfuls of honey!
We had a lovely walk to see the wild flowers on the green. We even saw some Canada geese flying overhead
