Off we went to the forest again this afternoon and the children had a great time creating clay faces from things they found in the woods.
Yesterday we all had an outdoors snack with sandwiches and lots of yummy fruit.
We also had a story about a snail out in the garden today and guess who made an appearance……
The chicks may have gone but the children at Stanwell have a new science interest….
We have been watching as our caterpillars get bigger and bigger and are now starting to spin cocoons around themselves. The children helped to pin the cocoons into the butterfly net and are observing closely to see who can spot the first butterfly!
We have also been reading about the Hungry Caterpillar and made our own caterpillars at snack time too!
This week is Eco Week in nursery and today the children were discussing which everyday items can/cannot be recycled. We sorted the rubbish and then took the recyclable things out to the recycle bin. We even took the food waste outside to put in the compost bin. The children have been learning about how recycling can help ” save the planet” through reading stories and are going to be doing a litter pick around the garden.
The weather has been great this week and the children asked if they could take the paint and the Lego outside. The children thought the paintings looked like washing on the line!!
It won’t be long before our chicks head off to the farm as they have grown so much and today, we decided to let them out for a wander around the nursery, much to the delight of all the children!
The children had fun this week planting cress seeds into egg shells and adding faces to the shells. As the cress grew it created a cresshead with hair! The activity allowed the children to learn what was needed for the seeds to grow while having lots of fun making the faces.
