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.
During this Summer Term the children in EYFS have had music lessons delivered by Love Music Trust as part of our learning in Expressive Arts and Design. The project has been based around the character of Barney Bear at the Seaside. The children have learnt lots of different songs and music skills.
On Friday to celebrate our learning and development within the area of music Reception and Nursery went to take part in a celebration concert at Clonter Opera and a Teddy Bears Picnic. The children all had a great time and they performed in the celebration concert brilliantly.
Today the children went on their second visit to share time together with the older members of the community at Trinity Church Cafe. The children took their chicks with them to introduce to their new friends.
The children began by sharing their experience of hatching chicks with everyone.
We then all shared a story together about Dora’s eggs.
The children and adults then shared a craft activity making pictures about the story of Dora and her chicks.
To finish out time together we finished with Rhyme Time – the children chose some of their favorite Nursery Rhymes to sing.
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.
