Nursery have currently been creating their very own sensory wheelbarrow for a competition. They decided they wanted lights and strawberries within the wheelbarrow. They have been able to plant the plants and have been watering the garden daily.
Yesterday, the chicks from Reception came on a visit to Nursery. We were then able to hold a chick and spoke about how to look after them. We discussed that they need water and food and we must keep them dry at all times.
Nursery had lots of fun today in PE. The children had to jump, crawl, run and bounce as they pretended to be a dinosaur. The children then had to try and aim the beanbag into the hoop.
In Nursery we have made lots of lovely Easter treats. We began by making Easter nests by breaking the chocolate and then mixing in the cornflakes. We then carefully spooned the mixture into the cake cases and sprinkled chocolate over the top. The children then used the left over chocolate to create Easter shaped treats.
Today Nursery have enjoyed visiting people who help us. We went to see the firefighters at the fire station and saw the fire engine. We learnt about what the firefighters have to wear when there is a fire and we even got to fire the water. We then walked sensibly back to school to enjoy our healthy snack!
All week Nursery have been planting their own flowers. We talked about what a flower needs to grow- sunshine, water and soil. The children then decorated their own plant pots and planted their flower.
Nursery have also spent today looking at the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. We listened to the story and then discussed what food the caterpillar ate in the story. We looked at an apple and a pear and described what they felt like and the colours we could see. After that, we printed pictures of butterflies using the fruit and even made fruit kebabs!
Yesterday, Nursery had a very exciting visitor. As we are looking at people who help us for our current topic Congleton Police came to see us. They talked about what uniform they have to wear and why, What they do within the local community and even let us try on some of the police uniform. After all that excitement Nursery were able to sit in the police car and turn on the siren.
After that we made our very own pancakes! We discussed that an oven is hot and how to be careful in a kitchen. Once we had made our pancakes we picked what healthy toppings we wanted.
Today we have been very busy in Nursery. Firstly, we heard the story about Smartie the penguin and talked about who we can see so that we are safe on the internet. We then coloured a picture of Smartie the penguin whilst discussing how to stay safe.
We then made red paper lanterns using our FMS for cutting and sticking. We discussed that this year was the year of the pig.
