World Book Day
We read the story "The Runaway Pea" and did some fantastic activities throughout the week. Children enjoyed trying some sugar snap peas and picking out out the peas with tweezers. We made our own pea pods using paper plates and salt dough peas and created a wonderful display.
Our topic after the Easter holidays is.......
Are Eggs Alive???
Chick, chick, chick, chick, chicken. Lay a little egg for me!
Are eggs alive?
What are buds?
It’s time to find out more about the things that happen in the world around us during spring.
This half term, we’ll head outside for a spring walk to see and explore a range of plants and animals.
We’ll collect some frogspawn to take back to school for observation. Do frogs really develop out of this strange jelly?
Looking at eggs more closely, we’ll learn about incubation and hatching.
Back outside, we’ll set up a weather station to measure rain, temperature, and wind speed and direction.
We’ll plant, care for and observe a range of seeds. What do they need to grow? Before we draw and paint them, we’ll smell and gently touch spring flowers, using hand lenses to identify petals, stems and leaves.
We’ll listen to and find out about the Easter story, and we’ll sing and play along to spring-themed nursery rhymes.
Using our maths skills, we’ll count ducks. What happens to the total number when a duck goes missing?
At the end of the project, we’ll use some eggs to make some delicious cakes!
We will be reading lots of stories linked to our topic about animals that we see in the Spring time.
We play outside rain or shine in nursery so please ensure that your child has a coat and sensible shoes on everyday.
Children can bring a named water bottle to nursery if they wish, to drink throughout the session.
PLEASE label all cardigans, jumpers and coats to avoid items getting misplaced.
Nursery times are:
Morning session - 8.15am to 11.15am
Afternoon session 12.00pm to 3.00pm
