Gruff Learning

Today Nursery went on an exciting visit.

We went to Gruff Learning where we saw chickens, goats and an alpaca. We were able to feed the chickens and the goats and listen to the sounds they made.

We had lots of fun!

Yellow Day for East Cheshire Hospice

Reception Class organised a whole school ‘Yellow Day’ to help raise money for East Cheshire Hospice.

The children could come into school dressed in yellow clothes.  Also, if they wanted to they could plant a sunflower seed to take home to grow.

In the afternoon, the children had a special visitor come to see them – “Sunny The Dog”.

Thank to everyone who donated money.

The Making of the Scarecrow

As we are currently enjoying our farmyard topic here in Nursery we decided that we wanted to make a scarecrow. We want the scarecrow to protect the lettuce we have planted.

We used a mixture of construction materials including sticks, newspaper and straw. The children picked all the clothes for our Scarecrow and decided where they wanted to place him in our outside area.

And the final product….
